We saw a man sitting on the corner of Broadway and 49th st. with a sign pointing to the restaurant. We decided to see what it was, and was surprise. From the outside it looks like a small lunch place, but when we came inside - it was a very nice restaurant, big and coosy, not to mention the food,... More

Had lunch today before seeing It's Only A Play, which was great. Pasta Lovers offers good food at reasonable prices. The brick oven pizza is good, the Bolognese penne a hit and the Caesar salad very satisfying. It was cold that day and we ordered hot tea with a shot of Chivas and it warmed the heart but the $15...

Having planned our trip and researched places to eat this was somewhere we hadn't heard of, the next street from our hotel on west 50th and a welcome find after walking out of a previous restaurant because of the lack of service. Server was friendly and helpful, we had a half bottle prosecco, my boyfriend had a pizza and I... More

I tried Pasta Lovers for happy hour yesterday and found it to be excellent! The happy hour drink prices are incredibly reasonable, the food is wonderful (pizzas are perfect to split for two!) and the service is EXCEPTIONAL. We went from 5:30-7:30 and it was very easy to get seats at tables or the bar. I will 100% be returning... More

We passed Pasta Lovers most days on the way too and from our hotel. We wanted something quick and we're very surprised how big it gets in the back. I'll keep it simple give it a go you won't be disappointed!!

Food was the bomb! Brick Oven Pizza was A+, but the best thing was the Fried Calamari & Marinara sauce, holy hell it was good! I try it whenever I see it on the menu, but this was the BEST Calamari I have ever had, hands down. Fabio was our server and he was just the sweetest, kindest man, who... More

Great downtown location. Quiet and comfortable with a very good wait staff. Bread tray is excellent. I had the meat lasagna which was tasty and plenty of it. The shrimp scampy was "off" and had to be returned for another meal. With all of the Italian eateries available in downtown NYC, this would not be my 1st choice.

Was really looking to get just a slice of NY pizza, but needed a rest after another day of visiting the sites of NYC. Saw Pasta Lovers on during our journey. Nice sit down restaurant, good food and tranquil. Enjoyed our food and drinks. Good service too.

We tried a number of restaurants in NY but this one was the best value for money we found. Very high quality food at a reasonable price. The seafood linguini was the best I have ever had
