This was a better than average meal worth coming back again. The flavors in each dish were amazing, portion sizes were on the large side and service was great. We tried the blue crab chowder to start; crab, sweet potatoes, etc in a yellow curry cream sauce - excellent. the cream sauce was light and tasty, the curry mild and... More

Island Pasta is not just Pasta. They have great fresh fish and lovely dishes that will take you back to Italy. We love the atmosphere and the fact that you really need to dress up a bit to enjoy this restaurant. Most places in FL are shorts and sandals but you really feel like you need to dress a bit... More

Great little restaurant in downtown Melbourne. Seating inside and out with great service. Once I fall in love with a dish I tend to order it every time. My special dish is the shrimp with plantains and veggies - somewhat sweet sauce but very addictive. The curry dressing is a real winner for the salad, which I believe is an... More

My girlfriends and I like to go to Island Pasta for lunch. I usually get the Volcano Salad with either grilled shrimp or blackened Mahi. I like to get two dressings on the side - the creamy curry and the honey cilantro lime vinaigrette. Another favorite of the group is the Irie Mon pasta. Last time there, we enjoyed Martinis... More

Great choice for tasty Caribbean-inspired foods. Despite the name, plenty of non-pasta options available. Friendly staff, ample servings, reasonable prices. Grilled mahi-mahi was superb. We strongly recommend a visit!

Island Pasta is awesome. They have a menu full of unique flavors that are unlike anything around town. The food is always fresh and delicious and very affordable. They easily could charge $5 more a plate and people would pay it because the food is that delicious. Some of my favorites are the Rasta Pasta, Irie Mon, Island Style and... More

We had read reviews on this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to give it a try. We were going to the Melbourne Civic theatre later in the evening. The food was good, would not say exceptional, great service, reasonable, and in a good location....everyone seemed to enjoy the meals between the four of us.

Old Downtown melbourne seems to be flourishing with an eclectic mix of shops and food venues. The Island Pasta Company reflects this unique taste/sensory mix. Our party of 4 tried everything from a tasty crab dip to Mojo Mojo pork to Lobster Ravioli and Chicken in a wine/citrus/vegetable sauce. Although a smaller venue, they also have tables in a breeze-way... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner at this casual place in Old Town Melbourne. The atmosphere was pleasant, nice island decor and art on the walls. There was a good bar. And we were sorry we had just missed happy hour. Anyway, We enjoyed the jalapena ravioli and Brazilian empanadas for appetizers, Both were good. The ravioli could have been spicier.... More
