You can dine in as well as take out here, but I prefer dine in. There are several seafood pasta dishes to choose from and for a nice price, including soup and breadsticks/garlic bread. No pretense, local Italian village atmosphere.

We like to go to the Pasta Market as a family. There is a reasonable variety of dishes to choose from and everyone can find something they enjoy. Also, it's hard to put those breadsticks down!

A great quick but large feed! Be sure to bring your appetite or perhaps a good. Crowd willing to share.

If you want some great homemade pasta to go or dine in for a reasonable price, Pasta Market is your place. Pasta is made fresh daily and has a wide variety of pasta dishes from kids to more exotic Italian dishes. Very casual, great for families!

The setup of this restaurant is a little unusual -- you place your orders at a counter, Panera-style, and then they bring your order to the table. The menu was pretty surprising, too. Lots of fresh good choices, like Caprese, nto your run-of-the-mill Chicken Parmigiana. The food was reasonably priced, and tasted really good. They have a large dining room,... More

Fresh pasta, and you can buy it over the counter as well? Great! Except not so great. The pasta is very think, and I am not sure why but the texture is not so great. The sauces are nice, but I was really looking forward to the fresh pasta and was disappointed.

This is definitely a casual lunch spot. You order at the counter and they bring your food to your table. The checkered tablecloths add to the atmosphere. The food is nothing special but definitely a nice option for lunch. Would recommend as a quick lunch option.

The best cakes - yes, I know it is a pasta place and the pasta is good too, but the cakes - chocolate mousse, ganache, chocolate cheesecake, are soooo good...as is the amazing homemade breadsticks, yum, yum!
