The management of this restaurant is extremely poor and the attitude of the manager is totally unacceptable. I've come here twice.....trying it again thinking that everyone has an off night...We had a reservation and waited 20 minutes . the manager was extremely rude when I questioned how much longer the wait would be. Although the food is decent, the attitude... More

This was my second time eating here. And the second time with server issues. Which is a shame because the food is good. But when a restaurant employee tells me that fresh rigatoni takes 22 minutes to cook, he actually said it takes longer to cook fresh pasta than dried pasta, it's time to find another restaurant. Thankfully there are... More

While visiting with family we went to Passione Della Cucina restaurant to eat dinner and was there for 4 hours. We had a party of 11 and everything was great. From the time that we walked in the door until we left we encountered some of the nicest greeters, waiters, servers and bartenders. The bathrooms were even wonderful. Overall it... More

This place is in one of the worst locations I can imagine....but, I won't mention the other places nearby, some are good, some aren't. But don't worry about those other places, because once you discover Passione Della Cucina like I did, this strip mall will become a more beloved destination!! Went there for lunch with some friends and were all... More

Made three trips back to Passione with friends. Meet Emilio, the owner/manager, who is delightful--greets you as you then start your mini food adventure. Lunch menu is varied and plentiful; just enough choices for you to take 15 minutes to decide (that's a good thing!). ALL items are made fresh...this is not your local Italian restaurant where the same sauce... More

We dine at Passione very often and are always delighted with the quality (and quantity) of our meal. Service is wonderful with a very efficient wait staff who go out of their way to please. Truly a neighborhood gem.

Bring an appetite, because Passione aims to please. My girlfriend and I have fallen in love with this place. I've been around the world, and dined all over Italy, and this is one of my favorite spots to dine. Naturally, it's Italian with an American twist. And the twist is nice. The mozzarella pyramid sends shivers down my spine every... More

Being really wanting to go here as I love sister restaurant, Fanatico. I am happy to report Passione is just as good! Waiter brought us a free appetizer. Bread basket had a nice variety and came out warm. Everyone enjoyed their meals; The waiter had no problem amending my choise of Mushroom Ravioli with Marinara Sauce in lieu of butter... More

I recently ate at Passione with my wife....biggest mistake. Clams oreganata were horrible...clams were the size of a dime....and one of the shells had no clam!!!!! I was so hungry that I just ate it. When the waiter came and asked how everything was....I told him the above. "Oh ok" was the answer I received!! My wife ordered the chicken... More

Okay. Since they opened the food was great which made me deal with the extremely poor customer service. However not only did the food quality take major dive BUT the customer service worsened (which I couldn't imagine possible ). We went to dinner (my family). We witnessed a fight between a young couple, and the managers! The couple were complaining... More
