Located on of the main pedestrian street with lots of restaurants. Food was good, prepared in Italian style. However, prices are rather high, and if you go with kids, there's no kids menu. You can order half portion but almost at the same price! Also,...More

Definitely one iconic restaurant with a history. Friendly staff. Most of all, the food taste good. Pasta is slightly thicker and the seafood portion was generous and most importantly delicious.

My wife, daughter and I ate at this restaurant earlier today. The food is absolutely delicious. The waitress and maître d' were also fantastic. The chef actually came out and spoke with many of the customers. Very highly recommended.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
As part of the TA policy on management responses to reviews, (..Be polite and professional and ensure that your response meets our guidelines). I will state upfront that I have no affiliation with La Pasta management or the reviewer comments by ibyl312 that were posted at the end of December 2016. The reply from the management (Mr. Enzo V) to this review was totally out of line, unprofessional and disrespectful to this customers review regardless of his comments. I had thought about visiting your restaurant as it is one of the most highly rated restaurants in the city, but after this management response and personal attack of a customer, at current, I don't think I would consider dining at this business unless this owner/manager retracts his remarks, stops with the insults and apologizes to the reviewer for his personal attack, belittling and insulting comments about this customer, again regardless of the situation. I have also reviewed your remarks to negative reviews concerning your business since 2013 and I would have to say you have consistently not conducted yourself and your comments in a professional manner to those with not such a positive view of your restaurant. We must all stay as professional as possible. Its okay to state the customer may be incorrect in their perception, but insulting customers is never good for any business. An abbreviated guideline violation of the management’s response has also been forwarded to TripAdvisor for review.
