    Passarella's is close and convenient from our neighborhood and really good quality Italian food. I was starving when we first arrived and so when the hot bread arrived I welcomed it and then went to work. The bread is really good especially since it was hot and with Olive oil for dipping. Good wine selection and appetizers. I recommend the Italian Caprese appetizer. It was really my favorite. Food was definitely good as well. Almost gave this place 5 stars but somehow missing the wow factor. It was also a little drafty and there were periods where we had to wait long periods to order our food and to get the check. However our waitress was super nice. Luckily we were not in a hurry. Go check this place out.

    Saturday night my friend and I dined at your establishment. This was both our first times. We have dinner every once in awhile for a girls night and try to choose a different place. She chose Passerella so I made a 7:30 pm reservation. Our server was Natalia, she was wonderful, engaging, as well as attentive. She knew the menu and what wine to pair with our entrees. I would have to say she made our experience a pleasant one. She definitely made sure our meals were perfect to our liking. The only hiccup to the dining experience would be when another server (who was not our server) reached over to my friends plate and turned her lamb towards her, without her permission. This was awkward and unsettling. If any corrections needed to be made with plate placement it should have come from Natalia. In which she too thought this action was weird. Aside from that, the food was delicious, the wine pairing was beautiful and the Tiramisu dessert was phenomenal. I will definitely be dining there again and hoping I reserve on a night that Natalia is there to assist with entrees and wine pairings.

    PasserellaResponded 7 days agoThank you Dawn for your feedback. I will look into the awkward rehandling of your entrée and apologize for disturbance. Hope to see you soon! John Karber General Manager

    This 3rd time there - not good at all. The pasta melody was mushy pasta was way too soft. Server forgot our whipped ricotta appetizer and our complimentary bread. The chick Marsala was crisp and blah. Sad great ambiance but everything else was less desirable. Sad that we brought our sister here for her birthday which we indicated but it was not even acknowledged with a candle or a greeting.

    Everything was alright. The sautéed spinach side and calamari appetizer was too salty. The lobster bisque was too runny with not enough body. The salmon however cooked perfectly. And the mozzarella appetizer was pretty good. No real complaints on the service or ambiance.

    Portion was sooo small 1/4 of a meal ..i ordered chicken Marsala and it was a thin slice chicken breast that was practically split in half. With two pieces of broccoli wouldn’t even fill up a child. Definitely over priced for the amount of what was ordered I will not be back

    The food was fantastic! Excellent service. Honestly, my entire dinner was ruined by bad parenting. We were seated next to a family with small children. I implore you-if you must bring your young children out to dinner at restaurants where dinner for 2 runs $200 and up, make them sit at the table and don’t let them run laps around it during the meal. Ruined my experience! I don’t dislike children, but I do dislike misbehaved ones due to bad parenting! We needed a night of relaxation and delicious food, and screaming, running children ruined it.

    The food was impeccable, the service was attentive without being overbearing and the ambience was cozy and subdued. The complimentary glass of bubbly was a very nice touch. I had the Frutti di Mare Alfredo, and it was delectable. My friend had the lasagna and thoroughly enjoyed it. If I lived in the area, I would be a regular customer.

    This was our first visit to Passarella; it was Saturday night so we made a reservation just to be sure. Greeting and seating was fine, nothing special but also nothing wrong - we were on time and seat at a regular table. Service all round was terrible and slow; there was only one thing that they brought and correctly and promptly and, not surprisingly, that was the bill!!! *asked for advice on a beer, waiter had no clue because he didn’t drink - fair enough but educate your staff *wife also asked for recommendations, same problem *waited ages for the drinks *brought me the wrong beer and tried to pour it still *cancel original order and order normal Dos Equis *Dos Equis finally comes - no lime *3 requests later for limes - still no lime *appetizers ordered - they managed that task. Asked if we would like to order main? Yes - conditional that they don’t bring the Main Course until we have finished our appetizers (agreed) *3 out of 4 appetizers delivered correctly. *4th comes late *all apps were very salty - tasted ok; just heavily salted I ordered Mussels. Wanted extra bread - TOOK AGES *Hot extra bread then came out - swiftly followed by all our mains (apps not finished and not cleared as per request) *all mains were over salted. Veal over cooked, chicken like rubber and salmon ever so slightly booked (not horrendous but average at best) Overall experience poor. 1st time likely to be the last time as I don’t think it will last long anyway. It’s not difficult - I think TL residents will pay whatever they charge and it’s a simple success story. Good service / good food! If you want that experience then go to Local Table in Bridgeland and you will see what good looks like for 2/3rd the price as well

    We have been here probably a dozen times and love it more each time we return. We had chicken parm and duck with gnocchi this evening on the patio. The food was great as was the view. But, the best part of the night was our dear waitress, Lynette! She went above and beyond making the night special and had a marvelous charm. Just icing on the cake…,Tysm.

    The Frito Misto was a bit over and unevenly salted but the batter was nice and the seafood was properly cooked. The waitress didn't write the order down which usually isn't a problem except they got one order completely wrong and had to rush to make the correct dish while the other diner sat in front of their already delivered plate. They did offer a salad or an appetizer while we waited to get the order fixed but we had just finished an appetizer so it wasn't appealing. The Petto D'anatra Con Gnocchi was OK but not very flavorful. Despite the description only one sliver of dried tomato could be found, the gnocchi were quite dense and there was a single unexpected interloper of broccolini on the plate. The blackberry gastriquie did not bolster the flavor of the dish very much at all. The dish was quite flat. The Lobster Ravioli Alla Vodka came out a lot more pink than anything pictured in the menu and everything was completely covered in a very deep pool of sauce. Maybe the dish was rushed since the order was placed incorrectly but it had a very strong tomato taste for a vodka cream sauce and it had sweet overtones as if tomato paste or ketchup were used as the tomato base. Observation, this is one of those places where the chef believes he is infallible and prepares every dish perfectly for every patrons taste so there are no condiments like salt or pepper on the table. When we got our bill the lasagna we never ordered was still on it and had to be removed. We tried to make a reservation between 6-7PM but no "standard" tables were available at that time so we took a 5:45 reservation. There were many empty tables when we got there and just as many empty tables when we finished the main course at nearly 7PM so I don't know why no tables available when I was making the reservation.

    Given them 3 stars as the service was excellent. However the food menu is lacking imagination really just basic Italian dishes done okay sadly. I ordered the lasagna which looked more like I had ordered a full can of tomato sauce with a side of lasagna. My dish was overwhelmed by tomato sauce and it was rather salty once I did reach the lasagna beneath the ocean of sauce. I cannot say I will return again as all the other choices on the menu did not excite the tastebuds.

    This was our first visits and I’m not sure if we will return. The service was horrible and food was nothing to rave about. The spinach risotto was so salty that it was left untouched on the plate. The Veal and pasta were very very dry. I’m not sure what the fuss is about this place. Quick update: the GM just reached out to find out more info on our experience. Knowing that the restaurant wants to do better shows the level of this place. We will give it another try because everyone that I have spoken to speaks very highly of the food choices and quality.

    Superior service, food was good, not great….pretty sure the NY Strip I ordered was not a NY Strip…steak was about half an inch thick and looked like something I could make at home. But…it was tender and flavorful. And the service was great so overall a very good dining experience. Also - we’ve eaten there before and the food was terrific. Their lasagna and meatball appetizer are both amazing. I’ll just skip the steak next time.
