Food was good but wasn’t great. The risotto had too much spinach in it and it was difficult to taste the other flavors. I had the black pepper gnocchi and the Parmesan cream sauce was kind of bland. Maybe it was just very busy and that’s why the food wasn’t up to standards.

My husband and I have been to Pasta da Pulcinella before and was very pleased with our visit. Therefore we thought it would be a great idea to make reservation for V-Day. That was not a great decision. The menu was pre-selected. As a pescatarian, running out of the lobster dish, was unacceptable. And to make matters worst the only option was grilled veggie. So for us to pay $141 for a veggie plate was unfavorable.

Responded 3 days ago

First, we appreciate the feedback and your continued loyalty. We offer our apologies, but the lobster dish proved to be quite popular and we just couldn't honor every guest's request. Your comment on the vegetarian options is well taken and we hope to avoid this in the future. PLease visit us again and let us find something to your liking.

They had way to many tables booked for their capabilities. The loin chop was dry and the presentation was akin to a child loading their plate at Golden Corral. The tiramisu and red velvet cake tasted like they had been in the freezer for quite some time. Our server did an excellent job as well as the rest of the staff. Shame on you Chef, you misrepresented and overbooked you’re restaurant on a night for special occasions.

I chose this place as my wifes 50th birhday dinner. I hadnt been in a long time and my wife had never been. We were super excited. First thing that took me off guard was how rushed our server made us feel as soon as we sat down. I DON'T LIKE TO BE RUSHED!!!! We looked at the menu and noticed that there were lots of mushrooms and eggplant. We are allergic! I mentioned it to him and he said "how allergic?" And, made it seem like we might not be able to eat here because he cant prlmise cross contamination in the kitchen. UNEXCEPTABLE!!!! Anywhere i have eaten and said i was allergic, there has been the response of,"wow, i will make sure the chef and kitchen knows, no worries!"
The food was great and so was the drinks and wine.

First, we appreciate that you took the time to give us this important feedback. Glad to hear you enjoyed the food and beverages. Sorry to hear that you felt rushed; that certainly was not our intention. Our space is limited, and we stay quite busy, so it can be challenging to turn tables and allow everyone to enjoy the experience. We will strive to do better. And, thank you very much for notifying your server of any food allergies. We always try to accomodate our guests on such matters.

It was extremely busy due to a huge conference being in town so we weren’t seated until at least 45 minutes after our reservation. I go here fairly often and it is not usually like this, and they handled it very well. They gave us free drinks and made up for it with great service once we were at our table
