Great stop for Italian

I have visited the Pasta Shoppe a few times now with my family. By far my favorites are the featured pasta specials on any given evening. They have never been a disappoint. The overall menu selections are very adequate for any taste or mood. I tried the pizza on my last visit. It was good, but as... read more

My wife and I have been traveling to Port Washington for years and we always stop for a meal at the Pasta Shoppe. The Italian cuisine is delicious and the service and ambiance is superb and welcoming! Try and stop in on a Saturday night as the owner always prepares a special dish that day. They also have outstanding garlic... More

We were looking for a local place on a Sunday evening in Port Washington WI after coming back from the PGA championship. Checked the internet for places to eat, there were many. We choose The Pasta Shoppe and it was the right decision. The setting was great, food fantastic, and the price was right. Had a table on the street,... More

Great Italian food in a family owned restaurant. Portabella mushroom ravioli was very good. The waiter offered the option of either marinara or Alfredo sauce. When I dithered, he offered to do it 1/2 and 1/2 of each, which was a good choice. The kitchen split ithe order onto two plates for us so we could share without the mess... More

Absolutely delicious!! My daughter and I both had the ravioli....the braised beef with marinara sauce was absolutely perfect! My son had the Sicilian style steak sandwich and he just raved about it. We also loved their garlic bread. It was fantastic. We can't wait to go back!!

This is one of our favorite Port Washington Restaurants! It opens at 4:00 and serves dinner only, but it's well worth the wait for it to open. The antipasto salad is the best we've had. There is enough for my husband and I to share one salad, (skip ordering the salad for 2 unless you have at least 3 people)... More

Came with 3 young kids during the week and we got seated immediately. We had the margarita pizza and added chicken to it. That was amazing! Only complaint is that the waitress could have come by a couple more times. That may be the style of the restaurant since I saw this comment on a couple of other ratings, but... More

I'd give this restaurant a solid 3.75. I called for a reservation as soon as they opened, and we were placed upstairs outside of the kitchen. So much for ambiance. It ended up being a blessing, since it felt about 80 degrees downstairs and was much cooler upstairs. The entree I had (beef tip ravioli or something like that) was... More

Went on a Sunday night, I think it's the only place open then because it was pretty crowded. Food was good, we had 3 entrees split between 6 of us. Lasagne, ravioli and fettucine alfredo. It was just enough.
