Not bad, but problems with desserts

I have eaten at Pasta House several dozen times over the past 8+ years. Tonight - Feb 28 - I had four different people waiting on me. I asked one, who looked like he might own the place, if it had changed hands recently. He confirmed he was the owner and that he'd taken it over from his cousin... read more

Crap food and crap service. The worst restaurant I've ever been to. Over priced. I don't know how they get away with this. I know good Italian food. and they don't serve it here. Stay away!

I went with some friends here for lunch. When we entered the building, the restaurant smelled like the cleaner they use to clean the bathroom. Not very appetizing for an Italian restaurant. The needed to tone that down a bit. The food was good, I had the ziti and small house salad. It was all good but just needed to... More

Great service and great Italian food. Had the baked ziti and a house salad. Salad was fresh and the house dressing was great. Wine prices are ok.

Awesome restaurant! If you are looking for something a little fancier and amazing Italian food then Pasta House is a must! Took our teenage sons here for a celebratory dinner and everyone's food was excellent. Our server could not have been nicer or more attentive!! We will be back

The food is excellent, portions are fair but not huge. The people and service are friendly. The prices are on the higher end but this is fresh, real Italian food- not spaghetti sauce from a jar.

Food here is always delicious and very consistent from visit to visit. I also like that they have a separate room for large parties. They accommodated 16 of us on a Saturday night only calling 20 minutes before. Would highly recommend this for a delicious meal!

Excellent service. Great ambience. Had the eggplant parmigiana which was excellent. The homemade Italian dressing for the salad was very good.good value for the money. Recommend for Italian food. Have had veal previously and was not impressed

this place is high priced for the amount of food that you are given and half the time the noodles are cooked all the way my kids meals were bigger than mine and my husband explained that and my kids split a meal $51.00 for kids size portions so it seemed won't ever come back again

I have been to the Pasta House a couple of times, I have never had a bad experience. The ante pasta is very nice. The prices a a bit steep but the food is good.
