We always enjoy going to here. I have that our last two visits service wasn’t that great. They don’t seem to have enough wait staff. I thought maybe our last visit they had wait staffcall in and maybe that was why they were under staffed but after this visit I’m not sure that is the case. My husband didn’t get his soup and perhaps if our waiter checked in with us sooner he could of gotten it in time before our entree. So I’m hoping his isn’t the norm for them.

The food was average and we eat Italian often. The service was very slow. I don’t mind waiting for freshly prepared food but others around us got their food quicker. I think they forgot our order cause when I finally asked for the food it came right out. The bus staff was very attentive but the food service was not.

Went on a Sunday afternoon with my wife and son. They had the options of brunch, lunch or dinner! The dinner menu offers a pay one price that includes an appetizer, main course and a dessert for $29.95....a very good value for the food we received. We had a nice bottle of wine with a very delicious meal. Would definitely recommend.

Books table in advance got their 15 minutes early. Table was packed between to other tables. Specifically wrote date on the reservation. Zero percent privacy on a reserved table. That table was the “we are busy tonight squeeze in an extra” table. That should not have been the table offered to us on a reservation. We opted against table and waited additional 45 mins.

Read the notes on the reservation, plan accordingly and make sure the best tables are reserved for customers who reserve early on special occasions.

Other then that, food service was great.

The food was very good, service not so much, my wife's dinner was prepared wrong. Twice I had to enlist other wait staff to find our waiter, he seemed okay But kept disappearing, the waitress at the next table seemed much more attentive.

2 of the 3 dishes were very good. Service was completely ambivalent right from the hostess to the server to the way the food was ultimately served. Hostess was chewing gum and completely dismissive in her greeting.

We come to Pasta Pasta for two favorite dishes. While 2 of 3 of the dishes were very good the attention to the customer was very lacking.

As a former restaurateur one of my golden rules was never to have a bus boy or runner from the kitchen serve the dishes. The "who gets the ABC dish" is not part of a premium dining experience.

Restaurants rely in repeat business and reputation. Be wary of the scenario that has you losing one customer at a time. Eventually it adds up.

First time my husband and I went here it was great.
This time not so much, food was ok wine was very good selection.
Waitress was a bit off hard to explain, it was the last seating at 9pm maybe she was tired.
We needed a wine glass switched out and asked the hostess if she could help us and answered with a loud "HUH"? My girlfriend had to ask "do you work here"? She said yes asked her again nevervsaw the glass after that and next time we saw her a few minutes later she was sitting off the dining room tucking it up with other employees quite loudly disturbing our meal.
I know it's the end of the night but the prices are the same no matter what time it is therefore the service food and ambiance should also be consistent,
