The restaurant is very small, so call ahead if you have a group. Pasta dishes are good, but service is slow. Very casual and child friendly, Nice local wines .

Wow what a great place. My wife and I were looking for a place to eat on our little getaway. We came up to Rock da pasta. My wife was a little leary of the place. I liked the menu and thought it was pretty creative. I convinced her to try it. Boy am i glad I did. The staff is very kind. they even gave us a great tip on an excellent winery in the area(whitecliff winery).The pasta was excellent. We liked it so much that we actually went back for lunch the day we were leaving and took leftovers with us. This place is very different. The names of the dishes are cool and the atmosphere is unique. Its a place you definitely need to visit if you go to New Paltz.

After my horrible experience at the Village Tearoom, I found this awesome restaurant. Service was superb and the food was some of the best I have had in a long time. Make sure you try this restaurant!!!

Rock the Pasta charges fine dining prices for overpriced pasta dishes. The restaurant is very small and cramped and when the band started playing next door the whole wall of the restaurant, that I was leaning against, began to vibrate and we could not hear each other speak. There were four adults and a child in our party and they included a mandatory 18.5%tip on the bill without giving us any choice to decide ourselves. They also did not have hard alcohol and have a limited beer and wine selection. A poor value for the money.

Always amazing service, friendly and attentive. Awesome for dinner with family or friends. Our kids constantly ask to go there when were in the area. Delicious gluten free and vegan offerings. They even had gluten free beer! We highly recommend trying the Joplin's Penne Rose and the Overnight Sensation. Always the best food in town with a super cozy atmosphere. Anyone traveling to New Paltz should def make a visit to Rock da Pasta!
