We happened upon this gem by pure chance. The inside is quite large and beautifully decorated. We thought that the menu would be expensive, judging by the decor, but we were pleasantly surprised to find it very reasonable! I had the calamari, which was just unbelievable, best I've ever had and I asked for chicken with my carbonara. The main... More

I am saying pleasantly surprised because I think it is difficult to find a restaurant which is not only fabulous with their food, in addition fantastic service. This was my first visit to Pasta Lovers and it won't be my last. First I must say a shout out to our waiter, Louis, fantastic service and smile! My 3 girlfriends and... More

I had a ceasar salad with chicken and it was not enough food. the taste was bland and it just wasn't enough food. it was listed as a main course and that was why i ordered it.

My husband and I were visiting NYC on honeymoon recently and we had two meals here, both of them delicious. We visited here the first time back in 2010 and in 7 nights we ate here 3 times!! We like it here so much as it's reasonably priced for its location, the food is fantastic and the staff are welcoming... More

I had dinner on a Friday evening and also on the following Saturday evening here. The food was very tasty on both days. The service on Friday was very good but the service on Saturday was just average. On Friday, I had the tortellini en brodo soup ($6.95), chicken linguini ($21.95), carrot cake ($7.95), and a pineapple juice ($3.50) for... More

This was my first and my wife's second trip here. It is a bit of a non descript entrance but once you are in it is a large restaurant which is warm and welcoming. The staff are pleasant and friendly and the food warm and substantial - just the ticket as I was nursing a hangover! The menu supports all... More

We found this restaurant just of 49th street, looks grubby from the outside and I should've seen it as a warning. Service very poor, staff miserable and didn't engage with their customers. Food very mediocre and when we gave them their tip, it was the only time they cracked a smile. Eat elsewhere...

On 49th near times sq and its a gem. We went last year and returned twice this time. There was no need to book but the place always had lots of customers. Lovely xmas decorations up at the moment. Good menu and attentive staff, always on hand for any request or a top up. Highly recommended

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...
