When we lived in the area we frequently ate here. It has been several years since we have been at the Pasta Shoppe, but it is still as good as we remember. The food is wonderful. Maria still makes sure that everyone is pleased. We love this place.

If you are looking for authentic italian food, you will not find it here. Portions are very small and definitely americanized Italian. Their garlic bread is the only reason why we keep going back.

Sue O - I'm sorry that you had an unsatisfactory experience at The Pasta Shoppe in December. We pride ourselves in having large portions of food. Occasionally if we offer a very rich and hearty ravioli, sometimes those orders are smaller only because they're more filling. I'd be curious to know what you ordered that you thought was a small...

We ate upstairs the first time and downstairs the second time. The lasagne was really great and we would go back and order that each time. Also, the garlic bread was decadent.

We were there Wednesday evening and had our usual- antipasto salad, pasta shoppe special thin crust cheese, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom and onion pizza with scrumptious garlic bread and a tasty bottle of chianti. It always is wonderful but for some reason it was even better this time! The pizza leftovers were great the next day too!

We went there in mid August and wanted a quick meal before we went to the pub across the street. What a mistake. I was leery of the place the minute I saw a sign for cook wanted. We ordered the calamari plate as an appetizer and it was chewy and tasted if it had been reheated in the deep... More

If you're at the Pasta Shoppe on a Friday night get the Baked Italian Cod, it comes with garlic bread and a side of spaghetti, mmm. Other days my standby favorite is the sausage and mushroom pizza. Enjoy!
