“Delicious Vegan Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2009

SOOO thankful to have found this place on our weekend trip to New Paltz. We were so happy to see the vegan and vegetarian friendly sign outside! AWESOME pastas, lots of options for meat-eaters and veggies alike. They even substituted and made one pasta meat- and cheese-free, without losing any of the tastiness! Huge portions, good service, DELICIOUS food; definitely worth a try!! We loved it.

“small funky pasta spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2009

I was really surprised by how small this place is since the big sign makes it look bigger from the outside. We came for lunch one afternoon at an off time and were one of two tables filled in the restaurant. Service was good from a college student who was eager to please. The best aspect for us was the fact that they serve wheat free pasta as we have a family member with allergies. The food was respectable - had cute names on the menu linking the food to various artists/memories from the 60's. The portions were not especially large but maybe that was due to it being lunch. Rock da Pasta was fun for a visit but I probably would not return if it wasn't for the wheat free pasta helping us out.

“Tasty and Unusual Pastas in New Paltz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2009

We recently had a great meal at Rock da Pasta, a funky but accomplished spot right on the main drag in New Paltz. Usually "themed" restaurants irk me, but they pull this one off with aplomb, serving a menu of a wide variety of pastas-- everything from the usual Italian numbers to eclectic choices featuring Asian and Carribean accents. The service is genuinely friendly and helpful, and the price is right.

“Great food, long wait.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2009

After a great initial experience at the restaurant, our group decided to go back and unfortunately, our table, which was situated in the corner by the bathroom was, for the most part, ignored. We waited about two hours for our food, whereas the table next to us, which was seated around the same time (an eight-top) was not only served their food first, but given to-go containers and had a birthday cake brought out before we were given what we ordered. To make up for it, they gave us "complimentary bread" which actually came with our meals. Although the food was great, we won't be going back. Pasta should not take 2 hours to cook, especially at $14 a plate.
