Great Place to Go for Horrible Service and Unremarkable Fare – Went here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon around 2 pm. There were two tables of patrons in the restaurant other than us. Things were bad from the beginning... we ordered two Diet Cokes and a Sprite and got two Sprites and a Diet Coke, and it took about ten minutes for the waiter actually to take our order. We ordered a hot antipasti appetizer to split, and it took 25 minutes to get to our table. On top of that, they also brought us a plate of bruschetta, which we thought may have been part of the antipasti. However, the waiter came, looked at the plate (of which we'd eaten one piece), and said "Oh, I'm sorry, that wasn't yours." And he took it away off our table! After that, it took another 25 minutes before we got our meals, which very obviously had been sitting in the kitchen for a while, as the sauces had started to congeal. The food was very average. I had the artichoke fettucine, which was made with canned artichokes, and I don't know if the pasta was fresh -- it didn't have the same bite to it that fresh pasta normally does, but that could have been because it was overcooked, too; it also was completely stuck together so that it made it quite a challenge to twirl. When we asked the waiter if there was a problem with the kitchen, he looked at us like we were asking him for a kidney and actually seemed *surprised* that we would think that. We've been to Tutta Pasta in the past, and had a nice time, but I can guarantee you that we'll never return again. I wonder if they've changed ownership. I certainly wish that I'd seen the other reviews before we chose to go there!
Was I able to read citysearch last night when I was hungry and in the mood for Italian food, "no".But you better believe that if I had, I would have never came to this pathetic excuse for an Italian restaurant. The food was DISGUSTING, my salad had canned shrimps ,with old cheese ( still not sure what kind) and it was saturated in some horrible lemon dressing, oh yes and if you don't believe how bad the food sensibilty is in this place, when we ordered the eggplant rollatini , guess what was inside , creamed spinach! The service was okay if you don't mind waving your hand around like a maniac trying to get someone's attention, what ever happened to "would you like some more water", 'another drink" , "dessert menu"? Service is not a big issue ( they also got our order wrong), but the food was the worst ITALIAN food in BROOKLYN, its hard to say , but this place just makes you Tutta Pasta in Your Pants!
Terrible food, avoid going there if want good service. – Not recommended at all, worst pasta, marinara sauce and service. after a server took our order he never came back to fond out how we were doing and if we need anything else, never showed up for our bill, he sent one of the bus boy's to hand us the check! terrible service!! Avoid going if you expect good service and quality food. we asked for about 3 wines from the wine list and and where out of stock. I rather just go any italian place like olive garden and pay less and get better food and service for less.
Worst Italian in NYC – I normally don't write bad reviews, but was so disappointed by this restaurant, I didn't want anyone else to have to suffer through a meal here. The service was slow and unfriendly, they got one of our orders wrong, and the food was REALLY sub-par (tasteless and soupy). The glasses of wine are large and cheap, but you get what you pay for. Every wine we tried was pretty bad. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Ever.
Patience Really is a virtue – We went here one night because my favorite Park Slope Italian was busy as usually and we had to catch a movie. Next time...I'll wait. My friend had a pasta with 4 cheeses which stuck together like glue. My red sauce was like an HBO series - it kept repeating over and over again.
Service was lack luster and even cold. The decor is old school and a throw back to the ancient red sauce joints in Little Italy.
So-so – its pretty generic, with generic dishes and generic taste. Good service. The food is so-so...but if youre in the mood for comforting italian, this is a good choice in Park slope. I would rather walk down two blocks and eat at sotto voce, which has REALLY great pasta and salads.
Pretty good! – I really do enjoy this place, the staff doesn't speak much to the guests, i dont mind that! You'd think mexicans running an italian shop weren't so great, but they do it perfectly. The staff is timely and speak (whenever they do open their mouths) very friendly.
Their pasta isn't spectacular nor is their marinara sauce, but their appetizers are wonderful. The fresh mozzerella is very very good. Their olive oil (for dipping purposes) has at the bottom a great mix of italian basil etc, try to get it on your bread without getting a clogged artery!!! Enjoy this place for what it is, a nice quiet place to eat with your loved ones.
If you love Italian, you will love it here!!! – I have long wanted to find a tasty Italian place and we found it! On a chance on night, my fiance and I walked into HEAVEN! No matter where I go for Italian, I will always order chicken parm and fet alfredo. To me that is a staple in most places and is my make or break meal. There's is EXCELLENT! Since my first visit back in Winter 2005, we go here about once a month or so and have tried different dishes, most very good. So please stop by and try some very tasty Italian!
Gem – This is a special restaurant only for people who get it. Every restaurant in the Park Slope area is themed or garish or cheerful -- they all put on some kind of ridiculous, modern face -- or they are just sucky. Tutta Pasta is like a restaurant you would find in Houston, TX or Cleveland or Burlington -- e.g., wherever you are from. It is for people who have been in New York for too long, and want to revisit restaurants without complicated ideas or sophisticated themes or creative cuisine. There is a 4-foot eagle on the bar. Black people go here for parties. The same CD plays daily -- Italian classics. If you don't get this place, it is because you are stupid.
Big menu- little service – Although we were seated right away and the waiter brought menus promptly as well as drink, he was almost never at our table despite being at the other tables right next to ours. Tried to get fresh parmesean and our candle lit. Finally got "powdery" parmesean and no light. The food was ok, nothing special. Not a good value- overpriced for adequate food and- PAPER NAPKINS???
