Food and service was great as always, highly recommend the pollo pane vodka sauce or otero dishes. Their Caesar salad is great as well.

Solid itslian food in a local spot. It can be dark in places, making it difficult to read menu without a cell phone flashlight. Depending wher you are seated, it also can feel a little tight. The good is consistently good, and the menu is not a typical southern Italian and instead has some creative pasta dishes .

The food is outstanding, fresh ingredients and presented well. The restaurant is pretty, like you are in a classy wine cellar, real candles lit are a plus. Romantic atmosphere.

Great Italian food. Professional, organized, dedicated, nice staff. Lively atmosphere. Tables close together, but you can still feel “date night ambience” if you wish. Bread was excellent whole grain and HOT! Bottles of olive oil and balsamic vinegar in special rack on the table so you can self-serve! Pasta bolognese was very salty. I would just ask in ask in advance if they could hold off on the salt. Great location on the way to Saratoga from Tri-cities area.

Food is always great here and service was good.

Two very minor complaints - sat us right next to other customers despite various other open tables and we didn’t get the waiter we requested when we made the reservation on Open Table.

The ambiance and food were very good. But we waited for over 45 minutes between apps and dinner which was 2 kids meals and 2 pasta dishes. Manager on duty was very nice and offered to buy us dessert but by that time we were needing to leave. As a "concession" he handed us a coupon for our next visit, $10 off a minimum of $50, not counting drinks. Well, thanks, but no thanks. He had the coupon at the ready which made us think he must have to hand out a lot of apology cards.

The noise level was awful loud. I was yelling at my husband over the dinner table that was so small, it did not have enough room for our plates. Seating is uncomfortable due to people walking by. The food was average. While edible, for Italian food it was bland. The best thing I can say is that the service was excellent.

This is by far the best restaurant in Clifton Park. Though it is more casual, they strive to give you a fine dining experience and they deliver every time. I have never had a meal there that I didn’t love!

Made a reservation for a quick dinner after a busy day. We took advantage of a bar table and ordered from the happy hour menu(4:30-7:30). They had comprehensive 2/1 wine choices and 2/5 dollar appetizers! Polenta and caprese apps were tiny but delicious! They had 1/2 portion entrees for 8 dollars and my penne with prusiutto and vodka sauce and husband's shrimp pesto were good sized and very good. Even their bread is crusty and great. Desserts were 5 dollars and they had several choices. Our waiter was professional and attentive. We will go back soon.

The food and cocktails at Pasta Pane are great! There are some dishes that can be ordered as a half portion which is a nice option. They also have a nice patio for dining outside when the weather is nice. I prefer dining on the patio due to the noise level inside which can make it difficult to converse at times.

Brought 2 friends that had never been there before. Very crowded in the back room. Wait staff could barely get by tables! Too close!
Waiter was great. We ordered and he came back to tell me they were out of the Salmon. Changed to Filet and Shrimp which was great.
All enjoyed their meal.
Overall good experience but slow. After track stuff!
