First off let me say I don’t know how I was able to make a reservation on open table because SOLA PASTA BAR absolutely DID NOT honor the reservation I made on open table. I tried to reserve one of their enclosed private tables, which is what I thought I did on this site. But when I got there I was told I had no reservation whatsoever, and that if I wanted a private house I had to put down a deposit. They then tried to squeeze my party in to a lesser table, that was not socially distanced. I would never patron or suggest this restaurant to anyone after my experience. My girlfriends birthday dinner was ruined and I was unable to recover the evening after such a last minute change in plans. Highly disappointing.

I made the reservation for my daughter and her boyfriend to celebrate his birthday both over 21 but they are young. Although they were on time -dressed appropriately -gave their name and reservation confirmation. They were told there was a wait and then they were completed ignored other parties with no reservation were seated before them. The hostess only came out to check on this other group standing right next them, never acknowledged them.I can only assume it’s because they looked a little young they are 22 but the amount of emails and texts I received to confirm this reservation(at least 10 different messages saying don’t forget and please confirm which I did ) I would have thought they would be ushered right in. But disappointing after 30 mins they left.

A delight. The squid ink pasta was a triumph and the paired down wine list is delicious without creating any confusion

El lugar bueno, solo que cobraron un fee extra por pandemia, lo cual se me hizo abusivo

Sola has been a fave of mine for a long time but it gets better each time I’m there. Every pasta is delicious and a nice portion. Their cocktails are delicious albeit a bit pricy. The new covid igloos made it a very comfortable outdoor dining experience. I love the energy the young manager has wanting to make it a party vibe. Can’t wait to go back

Once again the food and service didn’t disappoint. It’s the second time Ive been to Sola pasta. The waiter made very good recommendations and he was on the money. It’s a neighbourhood gem. Definitely not your typical pasta bar. The food is innovative and they take customer service seriously but in a fun way I recommend it.

One of the best dinners I have ever had, the food is spectacular, we ordered the pasta with truffles and the gnocchi ripieno, if you go to Sola you can't go without trying them, the cocktails AMAZING!, the best espresso martini I have ever tasted, Martina and Domenico were there always taking care that our experience was the best, we will definitely return!

This is my favorite restaurant in New York by far. The food is immaculate and I've never left dissatisfied. I appreciate the servers knowledge in wine and help me pair one to each dish I order and also recommend flavors that compliment one another. However the most important thing to me is that they have options for dietary restrictions, meaning vegan options :) and are always kind and considerate about it.

I'll be back shortly.

Got the 2 ppl pasta tasting, the scallop app, two cocktails, and espressos. Food was soooo delicious esp the cacio Pepe & mushroom gnocchi but food took an hour since we got seated :/ they really need to work on speed.

The food was delicious. My only issue is the hostess...whoever had on a light brown jacket Friday night and was seating all the guests, his friend was being completely obnoxious. He was reaching over women to call him out or speak to him. Also whenever he would sit someone at a table his friend would yell something crazy..(ohhh these are my two dates, they will be very comfortable tonight) (yo bro tonight’s gonna be very fun) just very unprofessional. I saw him reach over multiple guests to get his attention. The hostess never once said anything to get his friend under control. Will not go again, no one wants to deal with that behavior.

Visiting NYC and this place looked good. Sat outside in a socially distant and responsible way. Nice partitions are you which gives you a feeling of intimacy. The music was okay too. Service was very good and I liked our waiter.

Food was delicious, but a bit pricey. Then again, it’s NYC. They had a 5% Covid surcharge which they mentioned up front so no issues.

My wife got a cocktail that was really tiny for $18. There are lots of options, but we enjoyed it. The gnocchi w/lobster I got was delicious.

We had the pasta tasting and mostly everything was delicious. Our favorites were the 24K gold pasta. It was the best pasta I’ve ever had. We also loved the cacio de pepe and parpadelle with mushrooms and black truffle. They were all decadent and divine. The staff was hospitable and friendly. I would definitely go back again and again.

The pastas were great. We got the truffle Tagliatelle al Tartufo which was amazing and exactly what you would think it tastes like. Just make sure you have a big appetite and some water at hand because it can feel a bit heavy, but I’m not complaining! If you’re looking for something rich in taste then this is the one. We also got the Spaghetti Neri Alle Vongole. This dish was really good and a good balance to the truffle pasta; it’s lighter and more seafood-flavored with breadcrumbs and the like. If you’re looking for an aromatic taste then this is the one.
We sat outside and it was evenly spaced and felt very safe. There were dividers and everyone was wearing masks. At one point, my mask fell to the ground and got rained on and a server gave me a mask. So grateful!

Our experience was awful from the start. We arrived at 9:15pm for our reservation. A table was not ready and the two hostess keep claiming "your table will be ready in a couple of minutes". An HOUR later, at 10:15pm, we finally sat to eat after watching numerous tables be given to other guests. Prior to sitting, the male hostess told us our drinks would be free because we waited an entire hour to sit. Once we sat, we tried to order the pasta tasting menu but we were told we were not able to because the kitchen closed at 11pm. We were rushed through our meal because we were told we had to leave at 11pm. After we finished and the check was brought out, none of the drinks were free as we were told and the male hostess pretended to not know what were talking about and had a bad attitude.

It was a great experience overall. The hostess was great when she greeted us. The waiter was excellent! He educated us around the menu. He helped recommend appetizer, mains, desserts, and a bottle of wine based off our taste. We enjoyed everything! He was also tentative but not over the top.

The food was amazing and can very well speak for themselves. Each dish including the drinks were full with flavors. If you see the ingredient listed you’re going to taste it’s flavors come alive in whatever you get. Ruth did an amazing job with recommendations as well as making sure our entire experience was enjoyable. Her service helped push our visit over the top.
