My family of 5 was visiting from CT to see the annual Rockettes Christmas Show. Located conveniently close (4 minutes), we walked to Pasta Lovers Trattoria. The service was great, all good items were scrumptious. The ambiance was so warm and beautifully decorated for the holiday. Super easy to make a reservation through the app. Would definitely come back!

This reminded me of what Americans thought was "real" Italian food decades ago.
Pretty bland, uninteresting, soggy food overall. Very nice service. Wouldn't go back.

I picked the restaurant because of the close proximity to the theater for a show that we had tickets to. The service was great and the food was spot on. I would visit again and recommend this restaurant.

Always a pleasure to dine here. The pizza is excellent, the service professional, and we ate outside under shelter at a comfortable table well spaced from others. This is a perfect place to have eat pre-theater.

Either we had 5 different people at our table asking what they can do - but not communicating with each other or no one there. My families meal came out 20 minutes before mine, which was ridiculous. Then their credit card system went down and we waited over 30 mins for it to come back up - we kept saying we needed to leave - missed our show. When it finally worked, I was shocked to see a $61 bill for a small gluten free pizza, rigatoni with meatballs, a soda and a lemonade. Extremely overpriced. And they stated it was for families - no kids menu, so my 2 kids went to split and adult meal. Would never go again....

My boyfriend & I were going on a date to pasta lovers and when we ordered our pasta our server suggested we get white wine sauce after we wanted scampi sauce. When the meal came out it was very unflavorful. We then asked for scampi sauce but they said the kitchen was closed so they could not heat up the sauce. So we ate what tasted like boiled noodles and tough seafood. Such a waste of money! After we ate a few of the servers just stared at us while we were finishing up and my boyfriend asked if they wanted us to leave. I really wish they would have tried to do something to make the meal better but it didn’t seem like they wanted us there.

Stopped in between a matinee and evening show. Staff was flexible on seating even though I was solo. Food came quick as did beverages and they helped me package my leftovers the way that I wanted. I’d go back!

Food is nothing to brag about. We were sat outside due to not having the covid vaccination cards, yet were served water in glass cups without straws. Will not be going back.
