Had lovely valentines lunch here. Great if you are staying upstairs in Radio City Apartments. Pasta was good.

I stayed at the hotel next to this restaurant and at their twice. The pea soup is the best thing on the menu. It's a nice atmosphere, but the pizza tastes like plastic and the pasta dishes need your added remedies. They need a chef who selects better ingredients and seasonings.

We ordered the BBQ chicken pizza with a glass of moscato & an IPA. Drinks were not disappointing but cannot say the same for the pizza. It was a bit dry (needed more sauce). Wait staff was very attentive however. Good place if you are hungry at the moment you're nearby like we were.

We were craving for a good pasta and we were walking and saw this restaurant, since the name is pasta lovers we thought it would be great, it wasn't bad but it wasn't that good either, we really liked the pizza, they have a good variety of wines and drinks, the service was very good, overall a good experience

We visited on the day we arrived in Manhattan. it was close to our hotel, busy, but there was room for us without a reservation. We ordered, and I can highly recommend the Caesar salad, it's classic Italian, and Pasta Lovers knows how to make it right. My wife had similar high marks for her Arugula and beet salad. Our...

Cannot review this place, because reservations were made a month in advance for a trip to NYC for a party of 11. Called the day of the reservation, and they said they had nothing. Pretty disappointing, since we came all the way from South Carolina, and a friend recommended this place. So for me, this place is all about the... More

Decided to try this as we were walking past. Very expensive drinks at front desk while waiting for seat. Was told 15 /20 mins wait. After 30mins went to see how much longer girl at front desk went and spoke to a man upstairs and we were told another 10 mins. 30 mins later we were shown to a seat... More

My college age granddaughters and I were on our annual holiday day trip to NYC, and we're looking for a place to have a late lunch. One of the girls craved pizza, and we all enjoy Italian cuisine, so we were drawn to Pasta Lovers by its menu and by its close proximity to Rockefeller Center. We were delighted to... More

We had a bit of a wait but wouldn't expect differently in NYC. The food and service were worth the wait. My husband and I love tartufo which you can't find in many Italian restaurants and it was delicious here.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
