My son took us to this restaurant recently and it was delicious. It's like your grandmothers house with seating in her back yard. Lots of umbrellas for shade. Service was great and food delicious. The calamari was grilled and tender and tasty. Mussels also a must. All pasta dishes were delectable. Nice inexpensive prices for Brooklyn. Would go there on... More

Great Friday evening meal with my wife... Very attentive service but maybe because we were there quite early, but still was very helpful and on the ball. The pasta was great and really outshines whatever was on it really, so stick to something simple and you're in for a great meal at a modest price. Kale salad was a pleasant... More

I have been to Il Passatore many times since they opened. I actually think they get better and better- the food is very good with special unique favors- especially nice on a cold night or in the summer for dinner in their backyard. I would highly recommend any of the pasta and appetizers especially the brussel sprouts, tortellini and ragu.... More

We took family here at friend's recommendation - very glad we went. This is a small restaurant with a cozy family atmosphere. We sat out back on the patio. There were 5 of us and we ordered a lot of different appetizers to share. Everything was fresh and flavorful. The pasta dishes were cooked perfectly and everyone left smiling and... More

We had pretty good service here. They take reservations and stick to them (we got there about 20 minutes early and weren't seated until our reservation time). We ate dinner outside, which was a lively Italian-lighted atmosphere. It's pretty casual as far as attire goes. When we were inside, I felt like the lights were almost turned completely down, and...

Amazingly, got in with no wait at 9:30 on a Saturday evening without a reservation. Ate in the patio area out back, very nice atmosphere. Our party of five shared two bottles of wine, app's, and five entrees for under $150. The pasta dishes were fresh and perfectly al dente, sauces were very good - all in all, a terrific... More

I've had italian food at over NYC and travelled abroad to Italy for culiany experience. I would rank them 4 out of 5 for sure for its food, price and atmosphere. First of all, this is located in East Willimaburg, out of nowhere but great location to look for parking. I normally dont come to this part of the town... More

I loved this little restaurant. It was classic Northern Italian food for cheap. But the chef apparently left and the food has changed. The service was still good. But the cavatelli and gnocchi were disappointing. Wine is still good. I hope their food gets better.

We have eaten at Il Passatore numerous times and never been disappointed. It's a small place that gets quite crowded on Friday and Saturday nights, but in the summer seating expands to the courtyard behind the restaurant - not fancy by any means but more than adequate. The food here is wonderful - pastas are homemade and the dishes are... More

My son and I wanted to go out tonight for dinner but it seems lately I'm not crazy about the food In the restaurants I've been to. We decided to go back to Il Passatore where I knew I would love the Tortellini with Squash and Truffles. It wasn't as loud as the last time, which was nice. The staff... More
