Seafood
Originally from New York, Owner Big John brought his love of Italian food to our little island. He then married it to his love of tropical birds and established the restaurant in 1989. The huge portions and creative cuisine quickly made New York Pasta Garden a local favorite, and we continue that tradition to this day.
The fresh seafood and friendly staff will keep you coming back for more! We offer the largest pour of house wine you will find on the island and a have great wine list by the bottle. We strive to have something on our menu for every palette and dedicate ourselves to make your experience both memorable and delightful.

    We have been going to NY Pasta Garden every year on our annual trip to Key West. However things seem to have changed regarding taste of food, they no longer fill your 2nd glass of wine for free, prices don't seem to fit entrees. At least 4 of our 6 adults did not like their entree. For us the "wow" factor is gone.

    This was our second visit to NY Pasta and Garden , We were here 2 years ago and had reviewed it then. The Caprese Salad is a must. The large is perfect for 2. They made the shrimp scampi to order over sautéed vegetables. The glass of wine is huge easier 3 times the size in any other Key West restaurant. This restaurant is a must see.

    Phillip was excellent and encouraged us to place our order before the private party of 40 dining inside. That was a game changer. Unfortunately, the food was average if not poor. We will not be returning.

    We booked for New Year’s Eve. Found out the day prior that it was a fixed menu - was not originally posted on their website - and they ran out of some of the food items! The substitution was lobster and it was hard as a rock. They were overbooked for their size and location. Our waiter did the best he could with what he had to work with.

    Good spot in Key West just set back from Duval St. We were served by the owner, and the special menu on Christmas day was great. Big pours of wine too. We will happily come back again soon. There's a large covering out front if you eat outdoors and it happens to be raining. Free parking in the lot.

    On an unusually rainy Christmas night the restaurant did a fabulous job! The owners were kind and friendly. Our server Donna was spot on. There was no doubt that the food was homemade and created with love. The wine by the Glass was an extremely generous pour. Thank you for a lovely evening.

    Awesome restaurant and great celebration on Christmas night! The weather outside was awful - pouring rain and windy, but the staff were in great spirits and made it so fun. Donna is an absolutely blast - what a wonderful person and waitress!! She hails from New York, where I come from, and we connected immediately and laughed all night long! She was the best! The food was fantastic, big servings and everything was cooked perfectly! Save room for the tiramisu!!

    The food was unexceptional, not bad but not notable, except for the rice pilaf. The lamb chops were prepared well, but the "rice pilaf" was terrible. I've never previously seen that rice dish prepared that way, and grateful for that.

    Great night at New York Pasta Garden. We ordinarily like to sit outdoors, but that night, it was raining, so we were seated inside. A few minutes passed, and a group of young ladies were seated outside. So we asked to be moved outdoors. It was still raining, but their umbrellas were very large, and we never got wet. Mu wife and I ordered wine and received it in enormous glasses. For dinner, my wife had Lasagna, and I had the Carbonara. Both were very good. The wait staff of Fletchet and Donna were both efficient and entertaining. We had a great time.
