After waiting outside for 30 minutes alongside of the parking lot with the car fumes blowing, just to even get in the door, we certainly were excited about this visit. After our evening I am not sure why it's so crowded... The service was horrible, the food was average to good (Noodles & Company makes great pasta dishes...), the place... More

Pulling into the parking lot you'll wonder if you want to go in. Once you do you'll wonder why it took you so long. Two brothers bringing the best of Italy to you and a staff that have no rivals. To put it together into one sentence. You have to stop in.

Went back to this old favorite for the first time in years. The food and service is not as good as it used to be, but the crowds are still in full effect. Come prepared to wait.

This place has been around for quite some time. Service ok, food ok. I know some locals will give me the side eye, cause it's always crowded in evenings, but I think my take out order was just average-smallest rotisserie chicken I've ever seen, sides were decent. Eggplant parm., which I used to live for from here missed the mark... More

This is the best Italian restaurant in the whole DC area. Max, the owner, is from Italy and cooks authentic Italian dishes. I am Italian, and I know good Italian food when I see it and taste it. If there were 10 stars, Pasta Plus would get them all!!!

We've eaten here several times and decided to do so again---especially when we didn't see a line coming out the door, which has happened in the past. It is a very busy, somewhat crowded restaurant but the quality of the food is always great. Tasty, fresh sauces and pastas. Definitely not a chain and it is a delight to sample... More

Salads are not much of anything but their homemade pasta entrees are very tasty!! Breads are also very crusty and soft, tasty. Wine list is also ok. Pasta Plus, a jewel in a not so classy spot in Laurel, MD. But where is a classy spot in Laurel? Must try when in town.

You would never think you would find a true Italian experience at a shopping center with an Arby's in the parking lot but it is a gem. Homemade pasta and true a Italy experience. The owner will visit your table to assure your satisfaction and the staff is gracious and efficient. The food.... What can I say. I've tried many... More

Food is always excellent. My grandson requests to dine there every time he visits. Gets very busy at prime times, and there may be a wait. Not fancy. Staff also very authentic. Doesn't look like a restaurant from the outside, but that's a false cover up for the great food. Take out is always good as well.
