Decent Italian food

We tried the pasta and the pizza both were decent. Nothing that was amazing for $19 an entree. The portion sizes were fairly large.

Hey, no charming Italian name here, BUT solid menu, good service. Great selection of home made pasta from $17-24. Various pizza offering from 17-20 (small). Large size available. Check out the full menu as the 'specials' really are not reduced price as you may think. Great wine. Very happy with this choice. You are close enough to Times Square, but... More

After 24 hours of flying from Australia, we just wanted a good meal. Second time at this restaurant and it did not disappoint. The meal portions are quite big in size and the service is outstanding. The pizza and pasta meals are the stand out here.

Been here every year at Christmas time after visiting Rockefeller center and the tree. Never disappointed with quality or service. A warning though the wait might be long (60 min) during holidays, but we'll worth the wait. Close to all midtown places. Don't bother looking for parking though , take a cab or the train to Manhattan or wind up... More

I work at Rockefeller Center... so this is in the perfect location to go on a dinner break. The food is great... it does get a bit crowded around happy hour... but it's worth the wait. Nice italian food. Great service.

We visited this eatery a few days after Christmas and the festive decor was lovely. The restaurant was packed, yet service was pretty swift. We selected this one for its congenial atmosphere after checking out a few others in the same street that had more of a fast food feel to them; after a long day of walking in the... More

Good settings, fine service. However many better quality Italians in Manhattan to attend. Perfect for a walk in when starving.

As we walked along 49th St we can across Pasta Lovers and ducked in and checked out the menu. It looked great, so we stayed. Wonderful service and a great selection of pasta, meats and salad dishes.... More

Visited just before Christmas and the atmosphere was lovely. Very busy, with a really nice atmosphere. Speedy service - a little too fast if anything - we felt we were a bit rushed. The spaghetti bolognaise was divine.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
