Still a great place for a good meal

Have been eating with the Essa family for over 30 years. The menu has changed over the years. For a good meal try anything. Pasta, Salmon, Crab cakes, etc, Don't miss Ms. Essa's cheesecake. Food js reasonably priced.

Can't thank this staff enough for helping us get decorated and making everything beautiful and so perfect for us. You were so special allowing us to transform your place to make things perfect.

This is place that's been tucked away in the community for 30 years. It's family operated, fresh, delicious, and consistent. The marinara sauce is fabulous - the pasta is cooked perfectly. The veal parmigiana was outstanding. The home made cheese cake is like nothing you've experienced. You don't survive in the restaurant business without doing it right, they do! Finally... More

Took my girl for lunch today. We've been there a few times and not been disappointed . It's in a quite part of town, cool staff, and very clean. Atmosphere is cool too. Give it shot, it's good grub!

Cafe Pasta hosted a Surprise Party for my wife's 50th Birthday. A fantastic atmosphere, excellent food, & service oriented staff made it a night to remember for all. Cafe Pasta exceeded my expectations and helped to create a lifetime memory. Thanks and I recommend a visit to all.

I've had the pleasure of dining at Cafe Pasta for years. I love the crab cakes, the chicken parm, their Angus Beef Gourmet Cheeseburger with Pepper Jack Cheese. Don't forget the homemade desserts, the best! If you've not dined here you need to. The atmosphere is quaint and the wait staff and owner are all great. Good Fun. Great Parties.... More

Had the pleasure of having lunch with my parents it was obvious this was our first time there since we had quite a few questions for the waitress who was very patient ... with that said, Ray the owner made it a point to visit our table and welcome us as if we were regulars, which is much appreciated.

We had our Christmas party here and the staff was so wonderful and the food was absolutely delicious! I thought the restaurant was perfectly set up for gatherings with a large beautiful bar and three different seating levels, yet they're all connected, open and airy. Great design! Highly recommended!

After many weeks of contacting different venues in Greensboro to host our wedding, I was introduced to Ray through a mutual friend. After eating there and meeting him I knew this was the place! Ray was very accommodating and helpful during the planning process with suggestions on what had been successful with previous weddings held there and menu options that... More

Someone had recommended Café Pasta to me when I was looking for a facility to host a rehearsal dinner. I went and met with Ray and everyone sounded great. He was very accommodating and all of my requests were met. The actual dinner was wonderful. We were able to set up the room and decorate as wanted for our party.... More
