The words "strip mall" like "strip mining" connote ugliness, but each can contain gems. I was meeting a friend halfway between Baltimore and Washington and picked Pasta Plus in Laurel. I arrived at 11:30 on a Wednesday morning and there were 8 cars parked waiting for the restaurant to open! Inside we found white tablecloths, cozy seating, aromatic fresh bread... More

Family and friends all agree that this is the best Italian restaurant in the area. Whenever family or friends come to visit us, this is where we take them. The food is authentic Italian, and the ambience is just like eating in a cafe in Italy. The bland exterior appearance and waiting in line on weekends scare you off—it's completely... More

This was our favorite restaurant when we lived in the area. We were regular customers since it opened in 1982. We always go out of our way to stop own our trips back to the area.The seafood is always the freshest; and you will never be disappointed with the salmon, rockfish, or specialty fishes such as Arctic char but my...

This is not a pretty restaurant. It is not hip or romantic. It has award winning italian food at budget prices. As a vegetarian I won't eat most of the items on the menu. What I can eat, like cheese pizza is fantastic. I do see the lines of people waitng to order take out meals. this restaurant has been... More

this restaurant is run by two italian brothers, they have a little deli style store right next to the restaurant where you can buy olive oil and homemade pasta and ravioli to take home and cook yourself. Everytime I come usually i like to order their ravioli or their chicken cacciatore, they are always busy and you have to wait... More

If you like Salmon you will like the Arctic Char. This was flaky and delicious, seasoned to perfection. This is really five star, but I took a star away because there is not a full bar. There is however a wide variety of wines and a good selection of beers. The restaurant is at the intersection of route 198 and... More

Pasta Plus has been located in Laurel for many years. Consistently good, they serve fresh homemade pasta, light and so tastey with a good basic tomato sauce, right from your grand-mother's kitchen. All of their meals are freshly prepared, not microwaved or reheated. Dinners are served with crispy salads and fresh bread that smells fantastic. We each had something different... More

We recently dined in the Market Café. I had the veal crema, my guest had fettuccini w/ prosciutto, sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms. Each of us enjoyed our late lunch immensely. Even the bread was great, served warm from the oven. All in all, a most memorable lunch. Just great!!

The pasta was really fresh. The portion size was ok. I ordered carry out. It was good, but I have had better lasagna. The main difference was the actual pasta... I didn't realize there was a difference in taste when using freshly made pasta. I could tell the difference. It was really good.

Don't try to bring the little one, expecting to use a high chair. They don't have any, and are distinctly dismayed if you bring your own in from the car. Our visit was before October, 2013, but that was the earliest date that this review would allow.
