Best local gluten-free pizza crust!

Jim and Maria are the proprietors of this long established, local eatery. The specials, Friday's Italian cod, and gluten-free pizzas are the best! Large pourings of reasonably priced, and mid-road selection of wines as well.

We love coming here on Mondays (kids eat free night) and have fun with our two girls coloring on the paper - makes one feel like a kid again! Love sitting upstairs and looking out over the street - very cozy! Favorite appetizer is definitely the French Fried Eggplant.

I had the chicken alfredo and my wife had the stuffed shrimp with crab alfredo. Both were good but not great. My wife didn't like that her pasta was really oily. I think it was due to butter on the crab or shrimp portions that ran to the bottom of the take out box. I would definitely go back here... More

It was my first time eating at The Pasta Shop in years because they open at 4:30pm daily. I went with my family for my daughter in law's birthday. We got a nice big round table for our party of five to eat comfortably. The garlic bread was salty and when mentioned to the Waiter the owner came to the... More

All 7 of us were pleased. Excellent in every way. From soup, to garlic bread, to salads, to main courses, food was fresh and done perfect. Great thin crust pizza too. Super busy on a Saturday night, would recommend reservations as the bar is not real big. Fast, friendly service. Very happy to have found this place.

Great food, atmosphere and prices. The portion sizes are generous. The appetizers are the best. We love the spinach and artichoke dip. The Friday night fish is excellent. Always leave there full and happy.
