Delicious!

All the pasta was fantastic! This place is reasonably priced, the waiters were fun, and the food was good! Great little spot for Italian.

Went to eat here during our first trip to NYC. The food was good however the service was very bad. The water glasses were not filled even once during our 1 hour time spent there. The breads that are given at the start never came. Very disappointed with the service.

We were doing a day bus trip to New York City and was looking for a quiet restaurant to relax after walking all day. We came across pasta lovers. The food is a bit pricey but is decent. I got the spaghetti and meatballs that I highly enjoyed but the bread was not very good. Overall the staff was friendly... More

We were a big group - family of 8 looking for some decent food after a day of touring the city. The guy as we entered was very friendly and welcoming. He showed us the various sizes and styles of pizza. That is what sold us. His friendly and welcoming behaviour. We ordered pizza and pasta. Both were amazing dishes.... More

We were looking for an evening meal on a Friday night and came across Pasta Lovers on 49th Street. Place was busy but we were taken up to the rear of the restaurant which had large booth seated tables. Really nice ambiance and the waiting staff were very attentive. We had steak and chips with the steak done with a... More

Actually called Pasta Lover's Trattoria. Came here for a business dinner, explained to the hostess that we had limited time so of course our waiter didn't come see us for the first ten minutes. We were served bread and appetizers quickly however (mozzarella caprese and my co-worker a shrimp cocktail). Pastas (mine vegetable capellini, his farfalle rosati) came out about... More

Not sure which was worse pizza or the service. Keep on walking. After show stop with family. Pizza was the strangest I've ever seen. Cheese looked like melted plastic.

This restaurant was recommended by the guide on a boat cruise with Circle Line so I decided to check it out. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and attentive. I had the house salad followed by chicken in a lemon sauce and coffee. The bread and olive oil were really good too.

Ate here for a late dinner. The service was adequate however I felt our server could have checked on us during our dinner a little more. I ordered the Cappelini Giardiniera which was a huge portion but lacked in flavor. The bread that accompanied the dinner was unfortunately better than the main dish. Won't be in any hurry to return... More

Like I said the pizza its great! The rest is so so.. The decor is nice the waiter is a little pushy first time there and he was with an attitude when asked what non alcoholic drinks they had. I had never been to an Italian restaurant where the bread was missing when ordering a pasta entrée. Well the garlic... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
