Comparable to Maggiano's

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.

You can count on getting a nicely portioned, well made meal at Pasta Lovers. The staff is friendly and if you have a large group you can count on fast and efficient service. I've gone to Pasta Lovers twice for work luncheons an have had a very good experience both times.

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.
