not happy w/tipping issue. I only went there because of restaurantcom Yes, the certificate stated 18% gratuity, however, I thought it was something restaurantcom automatically put on all their certs. and that only certain restaurants would uphold that. I believe tipping was optional, based on your service that your server gave you--FRIENDLY, PROMPT! and not one where you are constantly seeking to ask for a napkin! I don't believe in tipping when I am standing at a counter ordering like I would at McDonald's including where I get my own drinks, my own napkins, etc. So, fine..the girls wants to uphold the 18% tip--and get this, she never gave me the cup for my son's drink, I ended up getting up and using their water cups and got him his soda! So, I put a call into the owner, he calls me back and says, "well, it's optional--except on these certificates." I asked him why he leaves a tip.."I just do." Not for good service, crappy service, or anything, he just does...ok fine..well, do you tip the guy that pumps your gas? I don't think they make anymore than your server at your restaurant..do you tip him?? shivering in the cold pumping your gas?? So, yes irritated that they would uphold it, so, instead of saving "$10" like the coupon would save me, I saved $6. Like my con said, if I was going to pay that price, I'd pay the same and go to Olive Garden! Their food was much better anyway. Honestly, pasta's food--what we had, was just so so. Not bad, but only so-so.
Wonderful Pasta and Salads. We love Pasta Veloce and eat there several times a month. There daily pasta and raviloi specials are amazing as well as their salads. They also have take out and catering as well.
Bad day. I've always enjoyed Pasta Veloce for good food at a good value. Last Monday my 5 year old son and I went in for lunch and were treated very rudely by the waitress/cashier that was there. She kept pushing for me to buy a slice of pizza even though I had attempted to order a Bambini pizza 3 times. After a frustrating attempt and a very clear "no I don't want a slice of cheese pizza only" she snapped back and said that it would be awhile because she was the only one there. There was nobody else other than my son and I and this was at 11:30 AM, half an hour after the restaurant opened. What the hell was her problem?!?!
Yummy Food - Awesome Desserts - Good service..
I have been visiting Pasta Veloce for the last 5 years now... I love their soups - especially the vegetable lentil soup. Their portions are the right size and the salad they serve with the Panini's is out of this world.
I am a big bread fan, and love the way they grill the bread before serving it.Place is clean, homely and busy , but never overcrowded.Love the Tirimasu.
Best panini I've EVER HAD!. I had the BEST PANINI EVER! It's called a pollo. Basic stuff, chicken, grilled onions, grilled yellow and red peppers, cheese and creamy spread... but the kicker is that you can substitute salmon for chicken for about $0.50. The salmon was grilled to perfection (not too dry and realy moist) and the bread was soft and fluffy. It was like the perfect slightly-gourmet comfort food after a long hard day. And the side bowtie pasta salad was AMAZING. I spent all night trying to figure out what was on it.... maybe coconut. My fiance didn't really like his chicken alfredo...mmmm.... but I can already tell that the Pollo (salmon) panini is going to become habit-forming meal for me. The service was a little slow for take-out (about 15 minutes), but worth the wait. Next, the mac n'cheese.
