    The service was god, although they offered outside dining but was not setup for it. The food was fair, a little disappointing since it is usually very good. Would not recommend for lunch, just dinner.

    I love this place. The food is excellent, the wait staff is warm and friendly and the ambiance is quaint and charming. The best place for a late day lunch or early dinner since they are open between lunch and dinner (I love that).

    We had a party of 6 for Mothers Day and all the food came out at the same time. Food was hot and presentation was impressive. Not once did we feel rushed. Don't know where the waitress was, but she was always there when we needed her. I would recommend a reservation.

    went on mothers day so we got a price fix selection. still plenty to choose from. my italian friends had chicken and veal parm. both said very good dishes and they would be back..wife had a shrimp and butternut raviroli dish with a volka sauce not her cup of tea but she said there was plenty and well done. she will have a red sauce next time. my meat plate was very good, prime medallions over mashed potatoes with a mushroom gravy. very tasty just too much gravy as it was almost a soup. grilled assparagras was a little soggy due to too much gravy and if it was crisp would have been the best i ever had. meat was perfect and good. salads to start where fine. desserts where great also. service was outstanding as they forgot my plate but made it very right with a price adjustment. so very good a definite keeper and we will be back.

    We hadn't been here in many years. I have no idea why! The food -- the bread, the salads, the entrees -- was all superb. Reasonably priced for a white table cloth Italian place, with more than ample portions. I had the chicken saltimbocca with angel hair pasta, the wife had chicken piccata with linguini. Everything was perfectly cooked and oh-so-tasty, esp. the sauce on mine. The service was very attentive and prompt, and the waitress was super friendly. The ambiance is okay, but not the strongest suit. It's a little bit noisy, as all the tables share the same space and there's a lot of hard surfaces for the chatter to rattle around in. But not overwhelming. The wine list has lots of room for improvement. They only serve generic versions of various types of wine -- you have no idea what the brands are, what year, etc. And the parking lot is a bit of a mess. Other than that, no complaints. We will surely return to PastAmore again soon. I promise! By the way, we went on a Friday night, and the place was full at 6:00pm. Make sure to get a reservation ahead of time!

    Great find that we all enjoyed even my 17year old! Food and service were excellent. In real European style, yammy freshly baked warm bread to start. Nice atmosphere with Italian radio playing all the classics. Did not give a 5 because the capuchino was only average. We will go back for sure.

    I have to say when we first walked in it was very loud. And I said to the others well looks like I won’t be coming back. Once we got seated it was still loud, but with the amazing service, fantastic food, and all the fun we had i definitely had my mind changed. Patricia was our server and owner was superb she didn’t miss a beat. She was engaged with all of her tables took the time to get to know you and have some fun. The rest of the staff also were great. The food was great. Some of the best desserts we have had. We will be back for sure!!! Try this place out

    I made reservations to come here New Year’s Eve because my boyfriend and I waited too long to find somewhere local to go. Luckily it was a great choice! Everything was delicious! My only criticism would be the meatballs were somewhat plain and my chicken broccoli dish had only a few chunks of chicken in it. Other than that, they were very accommodating and I will definitely be returning!

    The restaurant, while very small, was very nice. Wait staff was excellent! (I had been very concerned about the amount of time allowed for 8 people). Some woman, who was 'in charge' came over and spoke to me. Loved her...she told me I was a trouble-maker! But, all in good fun!!! They did take care of us and we did not feel rushed at all! The food was excellent. Will go back there again, for sure! But, the acoustics were awful! Very very loud/noisy. Really tough to hear! But, that won't stop us for going again. Thank you to all. Please be sure the restaurant staff sees this!!! Happy New Year to all, and, again, thank you for a great New Year's Eve Dinner!! Best/Lucy

    We heard mixed reviews about this place, but decided to try anyways.. My husband tried the Garlic Bread with Cheese, it looked like a small (lunch plate size) cheese pizza without sauce. Apparently it was not that great, he at 1/4 and gave 1/4 away. My Mom ordered a Spinach Salad, and had rancid walnuts! My soup arrived in a hot bowl, but the soup was cold. Our server, Maria, didn't come back, so my husband brought it to pass himself. No one ever brought me the hot soup, do when Maria showed up at our table 20 minutes later, I told her I didn't want it.. All 4 of us agreed that all the pasta dishes were lousy. My Veal Picatta Arancia (Orange) was quite tasty, i really enjoyed it. The Chicken Parmigiana, and the Chicken Picatta. Were also good.. Moving onto desserts, hubby had a Peach Sorbetto which did not taste very much like peach, Mom and I split a Tiramisu, and I had coffee too. The server brought this large mug of coffee with 4 little half & halfs, I need more when I have a small cup, definitely eith a large much. Plus she sloshed it all over. I asked her to pour some out as the cup was too full, I would not be able to add the creamer. I would not recommend or ever return here. Some of the food was good, but most of it was substandard. The service was VERY slow. I did notice the "stations" for the servers were odd, as Maria also had tables on the opposite side of the restaurant. If you want Italian, don't go here.

    Made a reservation on Open Table. Confirmed it. When we arrived (on time), we were informed that they had no table and the wait was at least 45 minutes. They should not be on Open Table. Giorgio’s is just down the street and a better run restaurant.
