“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We visit NY Pasta Garden every year when we're in Key West. It is HANDS DOWN the BEST spaghetti & meatballs we have every had. We are from NY & we're "older" so we've had our share of spaghetti & meatballs around the country. My husband can't stop talking about it. We recommend NY Pasta Garden to everyone we meet. You MUST EAT HERE. Tommy Lee (our waiter) is fun, friendly & personable. He makes coming back year-after-year a joy. You MUST put this on one of your PLACES TO EAT when you're in Key West. It is outdoor dining @ it's finest!!! Once you find it, you'll understand why this is a perfect gem. Set back in Duval Square makes it intimate and appealing and away from the hustle & bustle of Duval. You will be glad you went.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We remembered having dined at NYPG about 10 years ago and the food and service was excellent. Absolutely nothing has changed! We even discovered that our waiter, Tommy, had waited on us 10 years earlier and was one of the reasons we returned. The food, service, attention to detail, and atmosphere was awesome! Tommy delivered "over the top" service again and we chose to return another evening. We will definitely return and were told that they would always have a table for us! The service at this restaurant is among the best we have ever experienced. I am certain that the entire wait staff is outstanding, but we will always ask for Tommy!

“Wonderful place that the hotels doesn't tell you about!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We stayed at the Waldorf/Astoria hotel and they did not have this place on their list of restaurants. We stopped in to look at the football game on our IPad , (wonderful high-speed wi-fi), 5 Meg download, free by the way!!! The lunch was wonderful. Very tasty and realistic price!!! We came back the next morning for breakfast. We enjoyed a tasty breakfast for 1/2 price of our hotel's breakfast buffet!
So, we decide to go for the dinner of our trip. What a wonderful dinner! My spouse has scallops (jumbo) and I had the Filet Mignon. it was delicious! it was the first time I had a filet without putting steak sauce on it. This is the place to stop at!!! good food, and a very friendly staffl!!

“Great Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Found the place by accident and it turned out to be the best meal we had on a 9 day trip. The outdoor seating was fun, with parrots and other tropical birds as the entertainment. The owner was right there making sure all went well and the seafood lazagna was the best we've ever had. The service was perfect. Ask for Myles.
