Seafood
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, and we continue that tradition to this day.
The fresh seafood and friendly staff will keep you coming back for more! We offer the largest pour of house wine you will find on the island and a have great wine list by the bottle. We strive to have something on our menu for every palette and dedicate ourselves to make your experience both memorable and delightful.

    Very good food! I had the grouper with risotto . It was delicious and best tiramisu I’ve had. Donna our server made it a great experience. The seating is mostly outside and the place is a little hard to find. Would definitely go back!

    The food was unexceptional, not bad but not notable, except for the rice pilaf. The lamb chops were prepared well, but the "rice pilaf" was terrible. I've never previously seen that rice dish prepared that way, and grateful for that.

    Great night at New York Pasta Garden. We ordinarily like to sit outdoors, but that night, it was raining, so we were seated inside. A few minutes passed, and a group of young ladies were seated outside. So we asked to be moved outdoors. It was still raining, but their umbrellas were very large, and we never got wet. Mu wife and I ordered wine and received it in enormous glasses. For dinner, my wife had Lasagna, and I had the Carbonara. Both were very good. The wait staff of Fletchet and Donna were both efficient and entertaining. We had a great time.

    We were not informed when we sat down that their credit card reader was not working. When we received the check, we scrambled as we did not have enough cash. We were told to go to the ATM around the corner which we did and it was not in order. it made the situation, extremely embarrassing and uncomfortable. The waitress accommodated by giving us a discount so we were able to pay the bill.

    When you’re just plain tired of fish, and want an incredible Italian experience, this place is it. On the quieter end of Duval Street, off in a courtyard of other shops and dining, this place was perfect after a long day of walking and sightseeing. We enjoyed a table in the cool (almost cold) inside part of the restaurant. There is a lot of outdoor seating as well. Large menu with something for everyone. We split a large Italian salad and I warmed up with Onion Soup. Bread for dipping in olive oil included. Prices typical for the area.

    The food was outstanding, from appetizer to the main course;and so plentiful. The service was incredible. We really "connected" with our server Fletcher. Decent wine list - and the "house wine", which I almost never get anywhere, was actually pretty good. Enormous pour! Overall, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    When a restaurant adds a service charge (tip) to your meal it’s expected with parties greater than 6. But for 2 and then the receipt has lines for suggested tips it borders on fraud. It’s deceptive and destroyed the experience. Will not return and honestly places like this make you wonder what else is going on. Advise the customer don’t surreptitiously hope it gets by the customer. It’s wrong. They’ll bring you a free app it’s a distraction. Be aware.

    Service is pretty subpar.. we never even made it to a meal because of the lack of attentiveness by the staff. Started off with the host, who couldn’t be bothered to take her AirPods out and actually have a human conversation. She took us to our table without a single word, dropped our menus on the table and turned around and walked off. Sat for 5 min with no service as the host sat on her chair unplugged from the real world. This was not a busy night and there were two other tables with guests and us. Hopefully it was just a bad day for them, but prob won’t go back.

    We sat outside which it was a nice evening. Our waiter was good. The food was delicious. The bread was amazing! Then the bill came! Looking at the bill we saw there was a service charge, not on the final bill but on itemized bill. We asked the waiter what it was and it was basically a tip.they never told us the tip was included. Then on credit card slip they recommended another tip. We would go back but will notice if service charge is added.

    Ate here twice during our stay on Key West. It was that delicious. My husband is Italian and a tough critic of Italian food at restaurants. He loved it. He wanted to return the next night to try other menu selections! Every thing we ordered was phenomenal. Appetizers and Tiramisu were all wonderful. Highly, highly recommend. Service was great. They don’t have hard liquor- beer and wines only, BUT the size of the wine pour (for $12 a glass house wine) is like 1/3 rd of the bottle. Could only get through one glass each visit. Prices very reasonable too! We are outside 1st night and inside next. Ambiance inside wasn’t as good, but quiet, a/c and no flies. If you like Italian cuisine, you will love this place! 🇮🇹

    This restaurant automatically adds 20% gratuity, even to locals. (We made the server aware we were locals). The server never told us she added 20%, so we went ahead and added an additional 30% gratuity to the check, until another person at the table pointed out the auto grat. Ripped up that copy and just signed. I don't mind if the grat is there, but don't be sneaky and not tell your tables in hopes of getting double the gratuity! So now she got her auto 20% instead of 30% (or almost 50%).
