    This is a wonderful restaurant! We had a 5:30 reservation on a Tuesday evening and were seated promptly. Our server Spiro was warm and personable. We ordered an appetizer and then salad and pasta to share. (Spiro asked if we wanted the kitchen to split the dishes for us, and we did. There was a very minor up charge ($3 per dish), but we feel like we got a bit more!) The food was delicious! We started with fried mozzarella. The marinara was perfect; not too acidic. The Caesar salad was crisp and flavorful, and the fettuccine Alfredo was rich and delicious. The service was beautiful. The staff clearing plates and refilling water were attentive yet subtle. The meal was very reasonably priced for the portion sizes. We will definitely go back when we are in town again!!

    Pasta Lovers is my favorite Italian restaurant in NYC near Times Square. Our waiter was very pleasant and handsome! The food was delicious. We celebrated my birthday and the waitstaff brought me a piece of cheesecake and sang to me.

    We had an amazing and delicious dinner at Pasta Lover's after the theater. The Fried Calamari was very good, lightly fried and tender. I had the Marinated Seafood Salad with several different marinated seafood which was amazing! My bestie had the French Kiss which was a pasta with shrimp in a tomato cream sauce. It was presented wrapped in silver foil to look like a Hershey's kiss - very cool. We each also enjoyed a glass of Urban Reisling which was delicious. We were too full for dessert. Our server was very friendly, prompt & courteous.

    I always enjoy Pasta Lovers. The staff is warm and attentive, the food is delicious, and the noise level is low so you can actually have a conversation with your dining partners and hear them.

    Wine was good but food was not what we expected. We saw it had a lot of reviews and thought it was worth checking out but everyone was disappointed with the quality of their food. The chicken tasted horrible it was undercooked and tasted as if it came from a can. We would not eat here again and would not recommend. I’m sure there are better Italian restaurants in the city.

    We had not heard of this restaurant—needed one close to the theater we were attending. It came up and had lots of great reviews so booked a reservation. It was great! Friendliest service, wonderful & quiet atmosphere (we could talk!), and really delicious food. All 3 of us loved our pasta dishes.

    We had a lovely meal in Pasta lovers. Both mains were very tasty and we also had a starter which we had seen a photo of and it lived up to how good it looked. At the end of our meal we paid the bill leaving a tip that we deemed appropriate for the service we received however the waiter returned to tell us we hadn’t left enough and that the amounts were stated on the bill. We politely said we had left a tip however we were then told it was law to leave one of the amounts on the bill. The end to a lovely meal turned totally embarrassing. It was the only restaurant from the whole week we were in New York who treated us like this.

    We were a party of four and everyone ordered a different entrée and each was fantastic! The spaghetti Bolognese was especially exceptional. The service is out of this world as they always have people roaming to see if you need anything. Really enjoyed our meal and prices are very reasonable for New York.
