As usual, everything was outstanding - our waitress Yvonne was fun, and professional at the same time. We regretted that the manager Anthony was not working this past Sunday, we love Anthony!!

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,

We had the pleasure of going for dinner during Long Island Restaurant Week. The service was excellent and the food was top notch. They didn’t skimp on the special menu. I was not crazy about my entree which was pumpkin ravioli. That was just my taste buds, not the fault of the chef! My husband enjoyed his dish of rigatoni, chicken, mushrooms and prosciutto. The bread was outrageous! We even had two loaves! Our appetizers were extraordinary: calamari with a wonderful wasabi sauce and a spinach salad with apples and scallops. We shared both and enjoyed them immensely. We have been to Pasta Pasta for other special occasions and Restaurant Week was just as sumptuous!

Restaurant Week menu needs to be improved. The dinner I chose was not flavorful and a disappointment and not a very good value for the money. I will no longer go here on restaurant week as this is now the 2nd time I did and was not happy with meal.

I ate a lovely meal at Pasta Pasta with my parents. I personally did not love my entree, but I would attribute this to my own personal tastes and not the quality of the food. The appetizers I tried, the shrimp and cheese wontons and the sesame crusted calamari, were both great, and my parents both enjoyed their entrees. For dessert we tried the apple ravioli, something like that, which was amazing. The restaurant is located in the charming shopping area of Port Jefferson, and I would definitely eat here again.

Food was too greasy and over done. Fried ravioli? No good. My date had some dish that had Parmesan on top but they were literally slices of cheese rather than shredded or grated. Basically they have no idea what they’re doing there. Our bus boy asked us 3x if we were done after only 10 mins of getting our dishes which was followed by another waitress asking us again. We barely sipped our water and they kept refilling. There was no privacy during our time there. I wouldn’t go back but there aren’t many options in the area.

Came here for our anniversary dinner. Last minute plans so I wasn't expecting anything. Seems like a busy Thursday night for the staff because the hostess was MIA when we got to the restaurant and on our way out. We got seated next to the kitchen which wasn't the best spot to be considering the occasion. Our waitress was running around and I noticed that she took the order of the party who came after us before she got to our table. Food was decent. I wouldn't come back anytime soon.

Food was outstanding! Literally....Ambiance was nice.
Only minor gripe I have, is the service was almost too good, in that as soon as a portion of my water was sipped a woman came over and refilled the glass immediately. Also, the lady who took the plates away was literally standing over us, as we were provided with a table in front of the wine bar. She was harmless, but it felt a bit awkward as my wife and I were celebrating our 10 year anniversary...all in all - it was a good experience...just slight room for improvement in terms of "too much" service.
