Maybe you don't have any Italian relatives, but I do, and they eat well. We had never heard of Prisco's until my daughter discovered it in an online review recently. Prisco's is located in a residential neighborhood in the middle-class, unpretentious Boston suburb of Malden. The single story building is relatively new but not very large, with about fifteen tables... More

This is a gem of a restuarant located in Malden. All pasta is homemade and food is cooked to order. Small but very inviting. Vanessa is a wondeful server and keeps up with everyones orders. A great place either for a quick weekday dinner or Saturday night Prisco, the owner is very accommadating You will not be disappointed

Forget those five star expensive Italian restaurants. If you are anywhere close to Malden do yourself a favor and dine at the Pasta Market. Nothing fancy as to atmosphere, furnishings etc.. Go for the food and prepare to be spoiled.

I have been going to PM since its opening many years ago.The pasta is made on premesis and is sold to many restaurants and hotels in Boston. Eggplant is like nothing you ever had. It is sliced thin and combined with a great sauce makes the best eggplant you will ever have. The menu is on the small side but... More

There is nothing you can order that you will not like. The menu explains every dish in detail and all of them are wonderful. The same meal in Boston, or some of the overpriced places on the North Shore would cost almost twice as much. The food is handled and crafted with care. The owner and waitstaff are wonderful. It...

By no means is this resturant not good, the food is great but I will explain. My husband and I arrived about 7pm and was 3rd in the wait for a table. You usually have to wait because there is only 7 tables inside, but you can choose to sit at the bar that has about 8 seats. In the... More

We went not expecting too much as the outside and seating is not very pretentious - well, that's one way to put it. CASH only BTW - remember that! The service was solid but the stand out was the fresh pasta and the absolute fact that this is Italian-Italian food the American-Italian kind where there's a often, I think, almost... More

I've been coming here for years for dine-in and take-out. I've tried almost everything on the menu and I've never had one complaint. Pasta is all homemade and all vegetables and ingredients are always fresh. Servers are always attentive and sweet. Very nice girls. Cooks are fantastic. Must try the specials! They change daily and are always great!

Fantastic pasta at a very reasonable price. Specials change frequently. They don't take credit. Not recommended for bigger groups since there are maybe 8 tables and a bar inside. Parking is on-street only.
