I cannot say enough about the food at Pasta Market! The previous review is very unfortunate and it was some time ago.....This establishment has the BEST white pizza I have ever eaten and will not get it from any place else! The service is good and it is worth every minute I have to wait for my dinner! Everything is made fresh so it does take some time. If you want a nice relaxing dinner where you can sit and leisurely enjoy your meal, go to Pasta Market! Sam, the owner, will personally deliver your meal and make sure it is excellent!
I can t give this restaurant even a full star ... and while i can list a TON of things, I m listing the top 3 issues I had:
#1 and DANGEROUS problem *** I told waitress of my food allergy (bell peppers) and she told me to be sure not to order the chicken cacciatore. AFTER telling her of my allergy and her response about the cacciatore, I asked waitress for her recommendation between the Veal Francesce and Veal Piccata ... she recommended the Veal Piccata which I then ordered. When my meal FINALLY arrived (nearly an hour after it was ordered) there were HUGE pieces of bell pepper on the plate (reminder: waitress was told of my allergy and then proceeded to not only recommend the dish, but delivered it to me to eat!!). Once I finally got waitress attention she took the plate back to be recooked and came back to give me a status - I was VERY clear at that time that the dish MUST be redone and not just peppers picked out - she assured me this was happening. When food came back out she was quick to say he put tomatoes in dish this time. I took a few bites, cut up the pasta and as I turned the dish I noticed red pieces of BELL PEPPER - sticking out of the batter on the meat -- it was EXTREMELY obvious that the chef pulled the peppers off the plate & replaced them with tomatoes and that he missed the pieces of peppers that clung to the meat! I was NOT happy as I had been VERY clear that I have an ALLERGY to bell peppers - NOT simply that I don t like them.
#2 problem *** cloth napkin had cat/dog/animal hair embedded!! this was touching the silverware!!! GROSS!! (and it was NOT just 1 hair - it was a BUNCH!!!)
#3 problem *** it took WAY too long to get our food - the restaurant was not very busy but from the time we arrived until we left was approximately 2 hours!!!! Remember - during this time although there were 2 of us eating, only 1 of us actually got to eat the meal we ordered!
Other issues: waitress was not very attentive (restaurant NOT very busy at the time); Manager didn t seem too concerned about the food allergen being served to me; waitress tried to cover her bottom about serving something that she had been warned is an ALLERGAN!
I am NOT an employee - I don t even work in the food business -- however, I am a self-proclaimed Foodie and LOVE to try new places .. but BEWARE and STAY AWAY FROM HERE!!!!
