It was crowded when we stopped here for fresh ravioli for dinner later. We could see noodles being made at the counter as we ordered from the changing menu board. The butternut and pumpkin/sage ravioli was unusual and flavorful. Dave’s is a Somerville tradition, providing a variety of pasta and produce options. Also offers popular cooking classes.

Friends took us to Dave's for lunch when visiting the Boston area last month. We loved it!! It reminded me of gourmet shops from a decade ago (where did they all go? Why?) filled with deliciously crafted packaged foods, deli cases around every corner, and tons of great choices for in house made foods. We each ordered custom built sandwiches... More

My office gets catered by Dave's just about once a week, and it's always really good. The meatballs and sausages in particular are super tasty. Pretty good lasagna too.

My husband and I went to a "sauces" cooking class with Chef Jason. Jason taught us how to make a few different sauces - from basic marinara to mushroom cream and garlic and oil. We then got to eat everything as well as drink great wine. The food was excellent and Jason was an entertaining teacher. I highly recommend the... More

The pasta is great. The classes are even better. Chef Jason is an amazing teacher who not only cooks simple and delicious food, but is able to teach you how to cook it yourself. The classes at Dave's are always fun, delicious and informative. With a few simple ingredients and technique I was able to make and eat some of... More

The Hippie Salad at Dave's Fresh Pasta is my "go to favorite" for lunch on any given day for pick up or sit down, preferably outside on a lovely day. A fresh green salad, with tomatoes, cucumbers, sprouts, sunflower seeds, with a creamy dressing is filling and healthy! Chicken or beef can be added, but I find the salad is... More

I catered my graduation dinner from Dave's and it was incredible. Grilled chicken, shrimp, and white florentine lasagne were standouts. The roasted goat cheese sandwich as well is to die for. Highly recommended

We have a place like this at home and it was nice to have some great food to eat at our vacation rental house instead of eating out every night.

Came here after visiting Tufts with my son. Student tour guide recommended it and we weren't disappointed. Super sandwiches with excellent fresh ingredients. Little confusing to order and you have to wait a few minutes as it's generally very busy. Cool trendy location. You won't be disappointed.
