The workers and everyone were so nice and cordial, the major bad thing was that there were carpenter bees in the back patio and sawdust kept flying into my hair, food, water, and almost eyes. I’m sure they will fix the issue soon, I was wasn’t sure why they would keep seating people in the back. Cute spot though!! Food was pretty good as well.

This was our second time dining here and the food did disappoint. The lobster ravioli are some of the best I’ve ever had. The service was not as good as the last time though. Our waiter seemed very distracted and not attentive. It was disappointing but I would still go back again.

We've been coming to Pasta da Pulcinella since it was a place-your-order-at-the-counter-and-take-a-seat restaurant back in the 90's.
I was pleased and impressed with their Covid protocols, where they have the host come out to you rather than you going into the restaurant. They have obviously recently expanded their patio space, which made it easy for a large number of patrons to dine comfortably outside.
We ordered some old favorites. I enjoyed the ravioli di funghi, and my dining partner ordered the pizzoccheri coi rapini. Some of the rapini was a yellow-brownish color that was rather unappetizing, and did detract from the meal's enjoyment. Other than that, everything was in order.

Our server Cole was excellent! Top notch service and drinks! The food was also very good. We were seated outside in front of the restaurant so I never got a change to see the inside. Nonetheless, my boyfriend and I had a great date.

Great service (Cole) and food. Our daughter has to eat dairy-free and they are very accommodating. Pasta is made fresh in house, and we all loved our meals (mushroom ravioli, ravioli with sausage-granny smith apple-sage, and linguine no sauce with vegetables and shrimp). Our server was attentive, friendly and helpful. Best tiramisu!

The hostess was extremely rude. I made a reservation because they offered outside seating. When I booked my reservation I received a confirmation the we had outside seating. The hostess rudely told us they don’t accept seating choices. She shud us outside and didn’t seat us for another 25 minutes without any apologizes. The bartender kindly came out and asked us if we wanted a drink. The service, food and setting were wonderful.

The only challenge I have with this restaurant is they can never keep a reservation on time. It’s always 15-30 minutes late upon arrival. The delay causes the validated parking to expire making parking in the Moxy lot more expensive, all because this restaurant is unable to quote an accurate reservation time.

Thank you for writing. Apologies if there was a delay in seating you. Our space is small and we do stay quite busy, so turning the tables can be a challenge. We continue to strive to do better. Hope to see you again soon.

We are beyond happy. So lucky we found this gem. First of all the staff is incredible. They are all fast, pleasant and efficient. Our waiter, was fabulous! It's hard to imagine how fast the food came out and on time. We had apps, salad, main and dessert. No sooner were our plates cleared before the next course was placed down. We didn't have a dish that was not fabulous. I am always afraid to order ravioli because most restaurants serve very little but our 2 ravioli dishes were large. So was the other pasta dish my daughter had. If you want to impress someone with great experience take them here!
