Great family restaurant with casual atmosphere. Order at the counter upon entry and steaming hot fresh pasta is delivered to your table mere minutes later. Ordering fresh entrees is much better than the buffet option as those items are usually mostly empty and lacking the sauce that makes Newman's dishes so great.

We tried Newman's for the first time and did it carryout style We went with fetuccini alfredo with chicken with some garlic cheese sticks. The pasta was good as was the alfredo. The cheese bread was unique in that the cheese was inside the bread stick. We all enjoyed the meal and will try Newman's again.

We don't get there very often, but the food rarely disappoints. My favorites are the pesto and the spicy udon noodles, but I enjoyed a lot of other dishes that were really good as well. The buffet never seems to taste quite as good as the dishes made to order, but it is a nice deal and you get to... More

It is a rare occasion that I order from Newman's and actually get what I ordered just as I ordered it. There is always something wrong or missing. Once it was burnt pot stickers. Another time it was beef when I ordered chicken. I have to admit though, when they get it right, they get it really right. I really... More

Have been there several times. I usually order Pasta Rosa and it tastes good every single time. The ingredients are fresh. The price is great.

I can't get enough of Newman's Pasta Cafe's fettucine alfredo. It's about a 24 mile roundtrip drive for me to get to their restaurant from my house, but the trip is totally worth it! Loaded with gooey goodness (cheese), it's best eaten at the restaurant, although I have picked it up for take-out a couple of times too. Their breadsticks... More

Our whole family loves to eat at Newmans! The kids menu offers great pasta choices as well as delicious pizza which is good-sized. Or if the kids want more flavor they can get 1/2 orders of the other pastas on the menu. The weekend lunch buffet is just so-so as the sauces are not as flavorful nor plentiful. The roasted... More

Our family really enjoys Newman's Pasta. The beef stroganoff is very tasty and I would recommend it to anyone. They even have half portions. It is also convenient to call in your order for takeout. They will have it hot and ready for you!
