Filet at the Pasta Garden

As a local who likes to eat out, I have tried a lot of restaurants. I eat with friends fairly regularly at NY Pasta Garden. The garlic rolls are to die for. My favorite pasta dishes are Pasta Bella Mare and Lobster Ala Romano. The Grouper ala Lola is heavenly and if you dont eat fish ask them to... read more

We were in Key West for 5 nights and found this resturant 2 nights before leaving. The food was outstanding and Myles (our server) was just as good. So the next night we went back and asked for Myles again. I was able to order off the menu and they prepared me blackened grouper which was also outstanding. My wife... More

We were invited by Ray, who is also the host at our MV Coconuts vacation rental boat. Every aspect of our meal, from the delicious artichoke and bruschetta appetizers, through the various entrees, wine and dessert, was just perfect. Our outdoor table provided the perfect atmosphere, and our server Andrei was top notch! Our best meal yet in a town... More

While we have many Italian restaurants here in Key West, the New York Pasta Garden has to be our favorite out of the bunch. The food is always delicious, the service is always excellent, and the outdoor seating area makes for a wonderful meal under the night sky. A few of our favorite dishes include the Artichoke Franchaise, the Chicken... More

We have eaten here often and again tonight the food and ambiance were wonderful. Myles , our server , was great ! Knowledgable about the menu and full of... More

The best pasta garden ever! One of those perfect nights. Dinner outside under the lights of a huge Banyan tree. Absolutely fantastic ambiance. Had to wait a few minutes for our table and got the largest glass of wine ever. Our waiter Mario was the perfect host. The owner/manager was very efficient about getting everybody seated and had the perfect... More

We've been coming to Key West for almost 20 years and always come to the New York Pasta Garden (formerly New York Café) in Duval Square. The outdoor dining under the beautiful lighted Banyan trees makes it very Key West, but the excellent service and delicious cuisine makes it purely the best Italian restaurant in the Conch Republic! This year,... More

After many years of coming to Key West each February, we always come back to NY Pasta Garden. The food is great, service is very professional and attentive. It's unique outdoor setting under the twinkling makes it well worth the visit. We have had steaks, pasta and seafood and always a great time. The Bella Mare is one of their... More
