Description: Creative, casual cuisine influenced by the islands. Island Pasta Co. restaurant is one of the most popular dining destinations in downtown Melbourne, FL, and all of Brevard County. Our menu is chock full of flavorful pastas and amazing entrees with a twist. We were the first to bring the Brazilian cocktail, Caipirinhas, made with sugar cane rum, to the area. We are known for our mango and cucumber basil martinis. A new favorite, the Ring of Fire, incorporates tequila, fresh red pepper and mint. Come and enjoy Island Pasta Co., an intimate restaurant grounded on simple, creative and fun food, prepared with fresh ingredients.

“Pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Enjoyed lunch this past Saturday. Started with crab chowder. Very different but tasty. I think it should have had a dollop of blue crab meat on top though. The flavor of crab was there but it was too thin to be called chowder.. more like a soup. We shared an order of empanadas. They give you four large flaky pies, perfectly made! I will return for these alone. We also shared the Island Pasta. Bow tie pasta with a curry sauce. I would have preferred it with grilled shrimp instead of chicken. Large portion...we had enough for lunch the next day. I loved my key lime martini, but hubby did not like his dark stormy drink. We saved room for the fried banana dessert....amazingly good, and enough to share. Very rich but we didn't get much of the banana flavor. It was very good and I would definitely recommend it. Looking forward to another visit soon!

The owners need to give our waitress a huge raise. Sabrina was answering the phone, greeting and seating customers, mixing drinks, and waiting on all tables. She is friendly, professional, and we had excellent service. Rare to find such dedication!

“We will never Eat HERE!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

For years I have heard over & over how great this place is! My wife & I are in downtown Melbourne and we decide to check it out. Excited we see they have tables avalible! It is late but not closing time! As we walk in an employee rushes to stop us at the door and tells it has been slow and they have decided to close early. It is obvious since they still have patrons that they do not want to be bothered with us and have to stay later! We will never patronize this resturant!

“eclectic - caribbean - pasta ? Love it !”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Been here many times, always love what I get. Great spicy pasta dishes, salads, and appetizers; really gourmet looking and tasting no matter what you get.
Reasonable prices, good selection of microbrews and wine, full bar, casual-laid back atmosphere, great service.
Appetizers $4 before 6pm - yummy bargains !

Did I say fresh? Always good, unusual items and nicely done. Wait staff pleasant, and knows the menu and what to recommend if you're unsure.
