Fresh ingredients not drowned in sauces. Family friendly yet with 2 seating areas it buffers noise levels and provides space for couples. Great service. Adequate wine list. Reasonable prices. small strip shopping center setting masks it's talents.

I recently dined at Pasta House for lunch to celebrate my 83 year old mother's birthday. There were 8 of us including 3 children. The service was excellent and our server was attentive to all our needs including bringing us extra plates and forks for the birthday cake that we brought with us. He also gave the birthday girl a...

I'm not sure what richard r.'s problem was, as I've been to the pasta house three or four times and the pasta is cooked to perfection each time.(nothing ruins pasta like over cooking)

You couldn't tell from the location and unappealing sign that there is a delightful surprise inside. Although the decor is very simple, the fresh pasta dishes makes up for it by far. Made from scratch, you won't get boxed noodles here. It's a little pricey, so it's a great date night place although my children loved it. They offer coupons... More

Read all of the other reviews and so I thought I would give this place a try. As mentioned, the outside is deceiving, the inside much nicer. Service well above average. Now here is my complaint. With a dinner, you do not get a choice of a soup or salad, you can only have a salad. Not that the salad... More

In an unimpressive strip "mall" at the corner of Atlee road and Meadowbridge Rd near a hospital - delicious, very reasonably priced Italian restaurant. I had the baked spaghetti with marinara sauce, one of the tastiest marinaras I've had- husband had baked spaghetti with meat sauce and meat balls - he loved it. Others had chicken piccata with broccoli instead... More

Tucked away in a small strip center attached to a gas station you will find an Italian restaurant where you are greeted with a warm smile. We have been going to this restaurant for many years and we have consistently had good food and good service in a cozy atmosphere.

Don't be fooled by the location. This restaurant is located in a tiny strip mall next to a gas station. Usually, I would stay away from restaurants like that. This is the exception to the rule. This is a really nice Italian restaurant with good food and good atmosphere. The pasta is great and so are the salads and desserts.... 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!
