Great discovery

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... read 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!

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. I... More

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!
