“Old But Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Has been here for years with minimal turnover of ownership. Ambiance is warm, woody and cozy! Food is very good as is the Service. I would suggest reservations on a Saturday evening.

“Small, neighborhood, Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Good food; good atmosphere. Really need to have a reservation because this place is almost always full - parking is the biggest problem.

“Very Nice - But #1? ................”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

As I was visit Long Island I used our favorite, Trip Advisor, to find the top places for lunch in Port Jeff. I was visiting Bohemia and the #1 there was "Panera Bread" so.....I was looking for non-chain (no offense Panera, but.........). As for Pasta Pasta- it is very charming - versatile for a date or a business luncheon. Nice ambiance with decorations, quaintness, hardwood floors. Intimate setting but nicely spaced out between booths and tables. Service was great. Servingware was fair - nothing special from what you may be using at home everyday. They will bring out warm bread - a nice touch. It is pre buttered with a vegetable puree. Not my cup of tea altho' creative. Would have preferred 'soup mix' on the side. Full disclousure: I did NOT order Pasta. My subjective attitude is that you cannot screw up pasta so wanted to get something different (and not too heavy for lunch). The menu has variety with apps, pizza, wraps, sandwiches. I ordered the filet mignon quesedilla with corn/onion. The paired side salad was basically store-bag lettuce poured into a side cup. I'm big on salad personally so was disappointed by the lack of substance, not even using a store-bag mix with the carrott and radish. The quesedilla was good, but not memorable or worth repeating upon another visit. $12.95 fair for a nice place. Side pickle a bonus. I used TripAdvisor Open Table to reserve however they did not seem to use the system. The place was surprisingly empty (not complaining ......) for a noon reservation. Overall- I enjoyed the ambiance, great service however not sure if it's really the #1 place iN Port Jeff.
