“Great food and friendly owner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

The food at Pastabilities is great! The menu has a lot of options to choose from. The wait is a little long because the pasta is cooked to order. There are large portions so you'd be able to share. There is limited seating so take that into consideration when dining at lunch time here. I've never had a dish here that I didn't enjoy. The owner takes and prepares part of your order and is always very kind. I've placed catering orders with Pastabilities and have had wonderful experiences with them. They loaded my car for me and gave me suggestions on what to order for my guests. I will definitely be dining there again and recommend it to everyone!
