Pasta House, a neighborhood Italian Restaurant, with an authentic Italian menu. All pastas freshly homemade, a wide variety of seafood, poultry and meat items cooked to order, an excellent wine list and "Oysters Rockefeller" to die for!! A fantastic dinning experience to be had by all, just don't let the location and outside fool you. A true gem, a diamond... More

Pasta House is one of very few really good restaurants in this area. The food is always outstandingly good! Brings a little class to this country town. The restaurant is quiet and cozy, the waiters professional and attentive, and the menu varied enough to suit any taste. Not a fast-food place, so don't expect to run in and out quickly.... More

...For any occasion really. They even have private dining rooms for large groups. We've been many times over the years, great service/hospitality and even though the Italian IS good I now usually always order seafood because it's VERY good. As other reviewers have noted, the location is deceiving compared to the dining experience you'll enjoy from the moment you step... More

Pasta House has been one of our favorite restaurants in Richmond for many years. The food and wine are consistently delicious, and the prices very reasonable. Many people pass this hidden treasure by as it is tucked in a small strip mall. They have excellent seafood, meat and pasta dishes. The red sauce is just right...not too sweet or too... More

Located in a dingy strip mall, we were expecting your ordinary pizza, calzone greasy plastic plate quick meal. Could not have been more wrong. (Luckily, we were planning on semi-fine dinning before the Symphony but we were scrambling for time, and just happened to stop there.) Dark, intimate setting. Good wine list. Attentive servers and management/owners. Homemade bread. Good French... More

Don't let the outside little stripmall fool you.... This restaurant is AMAZING! From the moment you enter, you are treated with the best hospitality. I love the wait staff here. The food is very good and the desserts are decadent to say the least. Order the lasagna.... you can't go wrong. They even accommodated my daughter and her crew of... More

Really good food - we have never had a bad meal there. Baked spaghetti is always good. Pollo piccata and pollo livornese? are excellent - choose broccoli or pasta side. Flounder with Alfredo shrimp and also fettuccine with pasta house shrimp with lemon sauce were yummy. House salad is just ok but house dressing is good. Bread also just ok... More

We eat here almost every week. The food and service are great!!! If you haven't tried it, you've missed a jewel. Despite it being in a strip mall, it is a quiet neighborhood restaurant. Try it, you'll like it!!!

When you drive up to this restaurant, you will be completely unimpressed. Step inside, and you will find excellent decor that you never imagined from outside. AND the food is very, very good. I have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. It also has a very nice private room for 20-50 people.

We have been to a few good Italian Restaurants here in Richmond such as La Grotta and Edo Squid but this has good food and very attentive service. Worried a bit after changing owners/cooks but the food is still great , a good menu and reasonable prices.
