we really enjoyed our dinner and drinks the food and service was excellent, the only drawback that I have was that I would have appreciated more of your fantastic bread and butter. We will definitely by coming back.

Exterior of the restaurant considered typical American comfort style yet interior is totally unexpected with rustic feel. Crowded on a friday evening especially full house at the bar counter. Do note that the happy hour is only applicable at the bar counter and first-come, first basis. Was given free bread to start off. A fisherman's stew ($15) and fried calamari ($15) and their special entree - Filet mignon which turn out average yet pricey ($38). Overall I would recommend and I would return.

Always good food, staff very friendly. Only thing that was not good was the partition that was set up between us and the tables next to us. The partition was so close to our table that waitress had to stand right next to each of us to take our order. I know people are freaked about Covid, but these partitions were completely useless. Overall good experience other than that!

Had reservation. Few people in restaurant. They tried to seat us at a 2 square foot table with a plex screen where you couldn’t move arms. Then they tried to give us a table in same room next to freezing window. After acting like we were a nuisance they fInally seated us in bar where there were several tables free and socially distant. Caesar salad dressing tasted like ranch, had no croutons ( only a Parmesan crisp) and had a mushy tomato slice, house salad had HUGE leaves not torn at all with one mushy tomato slice. Both salads served in dishes that were overflowing and hard to cut up. Had a second glass of Chianti which was harsh & not the same as the first. Crime brûlée was good. Server was very pleasant. We were regular customers who traveled 1 and 1/2 hours to eat there. Will never go back .

Food was very good, but had a minor experience that was not satisfactory. We orderd an
entree of Chicken Pollo Pane which came with Spinach and Potato. My partner asked if he could have a side of pasta instead of the starch and veggie. No problem according to our waitress she would substitute the potato and veggie for the pasta. However when we got our check we were charged an extra $3.00 for the pasta and was told if he had the starch and veggie plus the pasta it would have been $12.00 since it would be considered a chicken parmesan. (this was told to me by the hostess) What??? The pasta cost is cheaper than the potato and veggie! Question: If you are going to be charged the $3.00 extra for a side of pasta then serve the potato and veggie (since it comes with the dinner) with a side of pasta. Oh we were told by the hostess they do not serve sides of pasta, only small bowls or large entrees.

We love everything about Pasta Pane, from the beautiful ambiance, great food and service is amazing. Always accommodating. My favorite is the bruschetta pizza and the eggplant dish is wonderful too.. but have had many other menu items as we’ve been customers there for many years! Especially love their cocktails also, and Peroni on draft is a real bonus! Given our ever challenging times with the pandemic, the staff does everything possible to keep all patrons safe... thank you !

We were seated at a table that was distanced far enough away from others and had a wooden divider in between the tables. My husband had a draft beer and I had a red sangria. We shared a casa salad, and for the entrees he had the fruitti de mare and I had the pollo pane which had spinach & roasted potatoes with it. Both dishes and salad were very good. Wait staff was very good and service was prompt.

We sat at the bar and were ignored frequently through the entire dining experience. It started with being offered bread and watching everyone else receive bread. Having an empty glasses of beer or wine- .... just a disappointment having been regular customers.

We came on a Saturday night at 7:30 for our anniversary dinner. Our table was in a nice spot, away from other people. The food and service was spectacular as always. We liked the fact there was time between appetizers and our entrees. There is nothing worse than feeling rushed! The noise level was really really loud when we first got there, but it calmed down a bit after a few larger parties had left. We can't wait to go back again!

Just WOW! We had excellent service from Matthew and Sarah. The muscle appetizer was delicious. My husband had the pork shank and the meat fell off the bone . The salmon was cooked perfectly. Of course, we had to have dessert and both were wonderful. Zeppoles and sorbet were our selections. This restaurant is doing everything right. Do not hesitate to make a reservation.

Arancini was quite good but both pasta dishes we had for dinner had very little flavor. Seems like they try to add cheese to things to cover up for the fact that there work hardly enough herbs, salt etc. The outdoor seating is 100% not socially distanced. Tables remain on top of each other and when people are sitting at the table next to you it is impossible to be more than two feet apart. I expected better of this place.

My husband & I shared a casa salad which was good, I ordered the Pollo Pane and my husband had the Frutti Di Mare which he always likes here. My chicken was breaded and fried with cheese on top and covered with chopped tomatoes and arugula. Also had oven browned potatoes and summer squash as the vegetables. More than enough leftover to take home for lunch the next day. Hubby had a couple of draft beers and I had a red sangria which was good too.

We sat on the back patio which was busy but very comfortable. Wait staff was very attentive.
