This restaurant just closed.

It was O.K., but it just closed. Some kind of Grill is coming in its place. Not sure when they'll open. I cannot add much more to reach 100 minimum.

Ophilia's Pasta House, 1097 Tamiami Trail, Nokomis, FL is permanently closed as of about October 15, 2015. Ophilia's Pasta House had been a local landmark for many, many years. I have never been disappointed in any way when dining there. Lots of us locals will sorely miss this fine eatery and it’s friendly staff. It is sad that it is... More

We live within walking distance and when we don't feel like cooking we can walk over for an inexpensive, wonderful Italian dinner. It's always good and reasonably quick,in a comfortable neighborhood style. We always see someone we know. We've also been in large groups and they handle it well.

I just found out that Ophelia's Pasta House has been sold. It has been our favorite spot, whether it be for a drink, watch a ball game, or order dinner. My last review compared it to a "Cheers" atmosphere since everyone is so friendly and all of the customers have so much fun there. We always enjoyed joking around with... More

We have not been for dinner but if breakfast is an example, this is an excellent place for good food and very reasonable prices whether you are a retiree a vacationer or... More

I went here with a friend for breakfast. Staff was courteous and prompt with their service. It was not very busy at the time. Everyone was friendly, even other patrons seemed to have a positive attitudes. The decor was old world European, Italian/Greek. It reminded me of a restaurant style we had here in Central NY about 20 years ago... More

I stopped in for my final visit to Ophelia's pasta house last weekend, had one last bowl of the delicious lobster bisque soup, and said goodbye to a local favorite.

Very sad that Ophelia's had its " Last Call" Monday night. It has closed. Owner's have sold the business which will be a different restaurant with a new name. We went there for years on a regular basis and knew all of the wait staff and chef John. It was a unique place: unpretentious, warm ,friendly, reasonable prices a "CHEERS"... More
