Originally from New York, Owner Big John brought his love of Italian food to our little island. He then married it to his love of tropical birds and established the restaurant in 1989. The huge portions and creative cuisine quickly made New York Pasta Garden a local favorite.
The fresh seafood and friendly staff will keep you coming back for more! We offer a full bar with an array of frozen tropical drinks and a great wine list. We strive to have something on our menu for every palette and dedicate ourselves to make your experience both memorable and delightful.

We were visiting Key West last week and decided to try the NY Pasta Garden. Food was great and sitting outside was wonderful. We had a rooster keep us company. He got so comfortable that he settled in a fluff under a chair immediately next to us. Just wonderful.

We’ll be back the next time we are in Kay West. We recommend it highly to all. Joan and Randy

We always have a good meal at NY Pasta; so much so that we return once each year. Food is good and priced well. Service is decent.

We arrived 30 minutes ready with a party of 7, so we expected to wait- but they were ready for us. The kids menu is very limited so if you have picky eaters feed them before you come. The outside dining was perfect for our dinner.

One of our regular spots. Always dependably delicious. We are angry though at the condo association in Duval Square. For years and years one of the highlights here was eating with the fantastic parrots doing their thing in the trees on the patio. It was so cool to being visitors down for that experience. Anyway shout out to Jeannette for being her wonderful self. She will also help you get your parry catered at a very reasonable price!!

We were seated outside but it took a long time for a waiter to come and even take a drink order, and the place wasn’t even busy. However, the maitre d’ apologized and gave us a complimentary artichoke appetizer, which was delicious. Prices are great and food pretty good, but the Caesar salad wasn’t great at all. Probably wouldn’t visit again but it was okay for one dinner.

We shared a delicious meal on the patio. It could not have been more perfect. The service was great too. We are in Key West for a week but we plan to revisit this one ... just that good. Plus, very generous wine pours.

Food was excellent. Wine pours very generous. Our only concern was two chickens decided to roost over our heads and we’re knocking down pine needles and other debris onto the table and into our glasses. But we slid our tables back a foot or so and we were fine. We’d go back.

We sat outside, decent ambience. Wild chickens and roosters running around. Apparently, they are protected by law (?) so they run free and literally roost in the trees above your table.

Huge menu - many options but just ok food. Dishes were very saucy and cheesy, which is often a good thing; our dishes were overly so. Would try a different Italian next time.

The food was excellent, the ambiance calming disturbed only by the occasional crowing of a rooster😁. But the server went above and beyond. We didn’t think it was beer and wine only and my husband ordered a vodka. The server got it for him from the next restaurant. He has French onion soup, I had the fried artichoke bites. Both excellent. He had veal Marsala (very good) and I had the lobster ravioli (scrumptious). I never have ravioli but this sounded so good and I’m glad I did. Highly recommend
