The service was great. The waiters were attentive and very friendly. But the food was just ok. My husband and I had the salmon served over a chick pea salad which did not include any pasta and it was very good. My kids had shrimp scampi and pasta with meatballs and they were just ok. Ironic that the dishes without any pasta were the best ones.

Everything we ordered was delicious: margarita pizza for appetizer was perfect! The fettuccini Alfredo w/chicken, peppers & peas - great flavors. My husband ordered the chicken Parmesan which was tasty too but he liked my fettuccini better ;) Our waiter was very attentive without rushing us - which is important to me. The Holiday music, the decorations, delicious meal, great service, great meal!

The waiter basically ignored us and the order that he finally brought out was incorrect. He took forever to give us even a glass of water. I remembered being in the restaurant previously and had a great experience, but not so much this time. There are other restaurants in the area to chose from next year.

It was a busy Saturday night. We have 815 reservations but arrived a bit late due to a delayed train. Happy to find they held a table for us. It was all downhill from there. Waited ten minutes just to get a menu. Another 15 after that before our order was taken. All other tables were given bread baskets except for us and the table next to us. Apparently they had forgotten until we asked. Food was good and the atmosphere was nice. Bathrooms was extraordinary clean it’s too bad given the ample amounts of waitstaff and people bussing tables that they are so disorganized to the point where no one isbsjre who got drinks,menus or bread. But when the credit card was put down it was taken within 30 seconds... but a water refill I had to flag someone down. Disappointing. Maybe during non Christmas season they can handle the chaos better

We took our kids to see a broadway show so we wanted a place that had everything. Pizza, Pasta, chicken and more. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and would definitely go back should we be in the area again. It is a big place but the tables were nicely spaced and with high ceilings it wasn't too loud. My daughter had pizza and it was very good. My wife had a pasta dish and enjoyed hers as well. I had the chicken parm and was happy. It was all above average food and they cater to the theater crowd so we were in and out in under an hour. If you are going to the theater and need a place that has something for everyone adults and kids alike this is your place.

This is a good Italian restaurant just a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of time square. Food was really good the service was very quick and efficient. We brought our teen aged kids and they ordered the pizza which they enjoyed! My wife and I enjoyed our dishes as well! I would recommend for families and It wont break the budget!

I knew when I made reservations that this was going to be spectacular! I spoke with Nick prior to placing the reservation and he told me what time to arrive as we had a 2 pm matinee performance. My husband, son, daughter-in-law, 2 grandchildren (ages 6 & 8), and I arrived at Pasta lovers and were promptly seated. Our waitstaff could not have been more accommodating, knowledgable, pleasant, and solicitous! The children requested dishes that were not on the menu and that was no problem. One wanted pizza (the best in NY I found) with no olive oil, one wanted chicken fingers, while the adults found many options on the menu. What a fun place. Very busy!! We will definitely return. The lobster bisque was divine!

A good find in NYC. We like this place, The waiter was so pleasant and we never felt rushed. The food was ample and was good. It is not gourmet, but it was nicely presented and unlike a lot of Manhattan places, we felt we got good value for the prices we paid. We would return next time we are in the city.

So happy I came across this restaurant on Open Table. I go into Midtown a lot and never saw this place. It is a great find. Tables are spaced enough so you at not on top of each other. The staff is fantastic. The good was really good and you get a pretty good portion size. My husband could not finish his dinner which is unusual for him. It was so filling. I highly recommend it and will most certainly retrun again.

Great as a neighborhood go to. Good food and relaxed atmosphere for pre-theater and larger groups - the place is huge. An easy walk from the theater district but far enough away that you don't get that "move 'em in, move 'em out before curtain" rush mentality.
