We were on our way from Fort Lauderdale to New York when exhausted from driving almost 700 miles we stopped for the night in Laurel, Maryland. Looked up Italian restaurants on trip advisor and tried the highest rated one nearby. What a find! The food was as good and authentic Italian as it gets. The lasagna was perfect, the bread... More

Food was fresh and tasty. Salads had fresh lettuce. Chicken on grilled chicken salad a little overcooked, but tasty. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Enjoyable lunch.

Always excellent. Large menu, but they do almost everything well. Personal favorites are the pizza and chicken parmasian, but it's almost impossible to go wrong. Prices are also very reasonable for what you get. Considering quality, price, and server together, this is my favorite restaurant. The food here is much better than I found when I traveled in Rome.

If Max, the owner, is there, it adds to the charm. We have dined at Pasta Plus for many years (including when it was located in Bowie, MD, in a shopping center -- one of the most unlikely places to find fine dining) and have always enjoyed the meals. Occasionally, there is a flaw -- tough eggplant, undercooked agnolotti, what's... More

My husband is a veal parmesan snob. He felt that his meal was the best ever. Large portions, great preparation & taste, very reasonable prices and service that makes you feel spoiled all made this a wonderful evening out.

Our office had a luncheon at Pasta Plus back in July and the food was fantastic. This was my first visiting this restaurant even though I’ve driven by the place for years. Don’t let the outside fool you the Margarita Pizza I had was one of the best pizza’s I ever had. The serving size of the pizza was larger... More

Pasta Plus is our favorite Italian. The owner Max is always present and he ensures that everything is done right. The food is great with a huge menu and daily specials. The wine list is good too. Service is usually excellent. Prices are low for the quality of food and service. You will know from the line that it is... More

My husband and I have added Pasta Plus to our itinerary for lunch or dinner, or both, every time we visit the Baltimore area. This restaurant is a short trip from the office and hotel complexes near the airport and is well worth the trip. It's an elegant place for a business lunch and an intimate dinner. The food is...

I was trying to find a place to get good, authentic Italian pizza and I thought this would be the place. The pizza was on the salty side, the toppings were not generous and the crust was chewy. I also ordered the Ministrone soup and it was not what I was used to. It was not tomato based and it... More

They don't take reservations is the only thing I would change about this restaurant. Owner is Italian, from Abruzzi, and the dishes are authentic Italian - if you've been to Italy and are disappointed with the Italian food you get in the US, here's your chance for the real thing. Artichoke, Mozarella and prosciutto appetizer with fresh basil and olive... More
