“Authentic Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

If you are looking to get a taste of authentic Italian cuisine at an affordable price, then you should look no further than Pasta King, At first I didn't care to try Pasta King since I am not a big fan of Italian dishes, except for maybe pizza.

I only tried them out because I somehow got hold of one of their "P90 pasta promo" cards, and was I surprised at the huge serving of pasta I got for that price. I wasn't even able to consume the dish that I had to bring some of it home for snacks. :)

More power!

“Surprises”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I am surprised a bit by all the 5 star ratings here. My experience at the pasta king was not too pleasant. First thing I really dislike is to find hidden charges on my bills. There was an extra charge or tax on the beer that I ordered. The service staff was a bit on the rough side with me about it too, almost rude. My seafood spaghetti were well overcooked. There are better alternatives.

“Best Deal in Town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Saw this restaurant here in tripadvisor when i was looking for the best places to try in dumaguete. I came last saturday and was hoping to eat brunch but it was still closed at 10am. It opens at 11 am, so I came back today to try it out for lunch.
The staff were really nice and introduced the specials for the day. I decided to try the Combo Special consisting of capellini marinara and house iced tea. For only P129, i was expecting a small portion but it was just right. Because my spend was so small, i decided to try the gelato as well. The mango flavor was good.
There was free wifi but it wasn't working well. The comfort room was very clean and complete w/ tissue, soap and a dresser mirror.
The staff could speak english and a little tagalog and were nice enough to watch my backpack while i went to the toilet. I think it was the owner who approached the customers, asking each table how their food was. I personally commended the great value they served.
Although i didn't get to try what they claim to be the best pizza in town, it's safe to say that pasta king offers the best deal in town!
