Yummy!

My mom and I wandered into Pasta Lover's one night by chance on our vacation last spring, and have been back twice since! The food is great with generous portions, and service is friendly. This is our go-to place for dinner if we happen to be in the area.

We had a group of 7 and where wondering around looking for a restaurant with good food, not too expensive that we wouldn't have to wait a long time to get a table for and found Pasta Lovers for dinner. We were not disappointed. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and we had good service. Most entrees were in the $20-25 range.... More

Come here hungry! I stopped in for an early dinner before going to watch an SNL show and was seated very quickly. After looking at the size of an entree my neighbour received, I decided to skip any starters. They are huge! We had the Chicken Scarpariello and Chicken Parmigiana which could have easily fed 4 people. The Parmigiana was... More

We had spent a long day visiting tourist attractions and passed by Pasta Lovers on the way back to our hotel. Decor was mainly oak timber and was clean inside. We were speedily shown to our table and drink and food orders processed by cheery waitstaff. I ordered the Chicken Cacciatori over linguine. The pasta was springy, the chicken tender... More

Pretty much has the same menu has Maggiano's but the portions are slightly smaller in my opinion. Definitely not a fancy place. The seating feels kind of like you are at a mall food court but the service and food are pretty good. Overall, I liked this place and would probably come back again.

We had lunch at Pasta Lovers before our show in Radio City. The restaurant was convenient and walking distance to our show. Upon entering we were seated at a nice table for four. We were two so they removed the 2 other settings giving us plenty of room. We were approached immediately to order water and greeted with the menus.... More

A positive experience, pasta was generally very good and the tomato sauce of the starters (mozzarella and zucchini) was great. Wine list is long of you want to order by bottle, but also the by glass list is decent (only by grape variety, though ).

Had great hopes for this place. Decent interior and good service but the food was just fair. Pizza was bland and 5 of us just were not impressed particularly with the sauce. A chicken dish with artichokes and a lemon butter sauce was unimpressive. Convenient for Theatres but will not return

Nice service, very nice interior and atmosphere. Great pasta and the greatest thing is that you can make your own pasta: you choose the ingredients.

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.
