Small Restaurant But Wonderful Pasta

They have freshly made pasta from scratch for dine in or take out. Their sauces are also made fresh on site. Prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is rather small inside, but we usually find a table available.

We enjoy this place very much, but if it's cold outside, the inside seating is very limited and akward. The last time we went they had water damamge on the inside of the walls and ceiling. The pasta is freshly made and they use great quality cheese. We really do love the food, but it's not a great place for... More

My clam linguini had the most clams I've ever had on this dish. Service was fast and friendly. Prices are very fair for the generous servings. There is something for everyone on the menu which is a real plus.

We have eaten at Cal Pasta more than once over the years and have never been bowled over by our meals there. Most recently, we had a couple of the higher priced pasta dishes on the menu and were disappointed. Mine was the smoked salmon fettuccini. To sum it up into one word, I'd have to say "salty". Our greatest... More

Casual dining at its best! I've been going here for years. Pastas and sauces are homemade and delicious. This is, by far, the best place to get a "homemade" dinner to take home and impress your harshest critics, at reasonable prices. Purchase sauces, uncooked raviolis, tortellini, and other various pastas, Caesar Salad dressing to die for, and you're good to... More

The food is really good here. It's not a real sit down nice fancy restaurant, more like a little place to eat outside or get takeout.

I have been to Italy. I understand the food in Italy, and so does this restaurant. The service here makes no sense, the way you order makes no sense, the tables outside are ok at best. But the food. THE FOOD IS AMAZING. Not always consistent from time to time, but ALWAYS GREAT. If you've been to Italy and you... More

This is the best pasta period in Chico. Best sauces and pasta. But there are serious staffing problems. I had to wait 15 minutes just to order two desserts to go. And the. 10 minutes for the dessert. The dessert was already made its just that getting through the line was a nightmare.

Stopped here after a movie because everyone craved Italian. Very limited indoor dining but a great outdoor patio seating area.We heard that the Alfredo was good and the kids had some and loved it. I had fettuccine with garlic sauce, loved it! The wife had spaghetti but felt the sauce could have been thicker. Over all very good and we... More

My wife and I stopped in because we were craving Italian food and I know this place makes their own pasta on site because you can see them doing it. I got spaghetti with pomodoro sauce and it was just ok, mainly because I was mistaken on what pomodoro sauce was and was expecting something different. However, my wife got... More
