Fresh made pasta

Excellent fresh pasta. Lots of great options. Stop by and have some excellent pasta dishes. Take out is a great way to avoid the wait.

We visit every few years and dinner is always delicious. My husband always gets salad, fettucine and garlic bread. I ordered the carbonara we both loved our meals. I ordered a small and still couldn't finish that size. He ordered a large md couldn't finish. The kids enjoyed spaghetti and meatballs. They especially liked dessert. Everyone loved the cheesecake with... More

We met friends with two children. We sat outside a little chilly but we got a table. The pasta was great service a bit slow and the garlic bread a bit overdone but good. The prices were great love the fresh pasta.

We got takeout and were very impressed. I had the lobster ravioli in a pink sauce by recommendation of the cashier and thought it was great. My wife had the lasagna and enjoyed it. They make all their pasta fresh onsite. Would definitely go back. If you are eating in be prepared for a wait.

This is the freshest pasta I have ever had in my life. I went two nights in one week because it was so good. The scallop pasta dish was to die for, and the spaghetti pie was great!

Let me start by saying, IF you can get it, its well worth the wait. All pasta, all the time. All their pastas are made in house. You can watch them make it at any given time. All pastas can be ordered with a variety of sauces. There are also gluten free pasta options, which is great! The restaurant is... More

Food is exceptional! Everything is fresh and the portions are generous. The Buffalo Mac and Cheese is slightly spicy with a hint of gorganzola cheese. Chicken Alfredo is enough for two to share and you will still take some home. I highly recommend the creamy garlic dressing.

I had the egg plant parm. I am a big guy and was amazed at the portion they gave me. It was excellent. I will try the lasagna next time. It looked so good, I almost stole a bite from the kid at the table next door. The deck was also worth waiting for. An excellent meal - highly recommend... More
