Reviews for Pasta Bene

WOW! Just wow! Visiting the area for business and found this place on the map on the route back to the hotel and called to see if they were busy. (Friday night) The woman on the phone told us she'd save us seating for 6 and it would be available when we got there! Highly doubtful, we walked in and she did! She reserved seats and then moved people around to be sure to give us seating together!! Service 10 stars!!! The food was the best we had our entire stay! Authentic, home made, full review
"Pasta Bene," as the name suggests, is nothing particularly spectacular or terrible, but instead, average. The flavors are familiar, yet unsatisfying; the dishes seem to mimic more than they attempt to create--I am yet to try a dish that has left me thinking "wow, Pasta Benne!" Perhaps, the quality of the food is complementary to the establishment's boring and outdated atmosphere, which seems to not only bother the customers, but also tortures the restaurant' full review
If you're looking for a cheap-ish, quick meal without much flavor come here- but if you're italian or enjoy authentic italian food, this is not the place for you. The salad I had was drenched in vinegar and almost inedible, and my boyfriend's spaghetti was overcooked and the sauce was a far cry from a traditional maninara. The service was good, but halfway through some dude came in from the street and just start yelling at people, which was concerning. Kinda a bummer
