I just ordered the Tiramisu and realized this review cannot wait! Before this I had the Penne Sausage Marinara, and both dishes were spectacular. Especially the Tiramisu. To think I almost passed on this!! Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

“Tried it for the second time...still not impressed.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

After my average review and reading all the WOW reviews in this establishment, I decided to give it a second go.

I always liked the feel of the place and the free parking. The girls serving are pretty and quite capable, once you get their attention. Otherwise, they yap at each other or with the 'regulars' around. Frankly it has a feel of Why Not bar, if you know what I mean. It can get noisy.

We ordered bruschetta, three kinds of pasta including the 100 year old recipe one, all were BLAND. And definitely not al dente. Cream pasta which is prob an alfredo and bolognese. I found it all bland, just lacking inflavor. The salad was also not tasty.
Highlight would be the service since the girls are all lovely and well-trained. Once you got their attention of course.

Won't be coming anytime soon. Nor would I be recommending it. Lots of better restos around.

“A must for the best Italian Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

I have to say that the Pasta King is a must if you are in the Philippines. The food is superb and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was relaxed and the restaurant very clean. The spaghetti sauce was awesome and pasta not overcooked. We really felt that the Pasta King was a highlight on our trip.
Thank you again to the staff for a wonderful experience!

“Delightful , great pasta, charming staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

My favourite restaurant in Dumaguete for so many reasons, decent wines , el dente spaghetti , good atmosphere , friendly charming service , even after a long shift after being on their feet dealing with all manners of the problems that a busy restaurant throws at them and all in a foreign language with all the different accents that come with it , the waitresses are still smiling as they work, fantastic. There's many establishments in the UK that could learn how to serve tables by copying the work ethic from Pasta King , Dumagute.

Deserts are delicious and the cost is reasonable , highly recommended .
