“ROCK DA PASTA - TRY ROCK OF PASTA”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I cant believe some of the positive reviews and question who made them. The pasta was the worst I have ever eaten. It was not cooked correctly and it was like eating a cardboard box. It was bland and lacked any taste. Come on folks lets keep it real. This place is like the joint you hit after a big night out and you just need something to wash the alcohol down. The trendy chairs and funky furniture does not hide the fact that the food is bad. It might look cool to be seen at this joint but being cool isn't going to satisfy my desire for a decent meal. Wake up and smell what the rock is cooking!

“Awesome Food...Awesome Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

It was very busy when we arrived for dinner but the owner and waitress was friendly and took the time to chat and give us some history of the restaurant and even offered up some advice on our travel route back home. The food was amazing and portions were large. Nice place to visit if you're looking for something a little different than the same old pasta dishes.

“Far-Out Food at Rock da Pasta!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Want some zesty gluten-free pasta and don't mind paying top dollar for it? Then Rock da Pasta the place for you! This quirky little place is the home of:
- Intense flavors
- Awesome gluten-free garlic bread
- Delicious gluten-free desserts
- Groovy Grateful Dead tunes

You won't find anything bland here, least of all the decor (or the music)! And be sure to arrive early. When we rolled in at about 6:15 pm on Saturday, the place was empty. When we left, it was full and a line was forming.

Be aware that there is an extra charge for gluten-free meals ($4.00 per plate, at this writing). But for me, it was well worth it to be able to eat a normal meal and not have to worry about the ingredients. When it comes to gluten-free and vegan meals, these folks know their stuff. Loaves of gluten-free bread are also available for purchase. Rock on!
