I love eating at Pasta Plus. If I could, I would eat here every week. This is a place where you go to taste the homemade pasta and delicious sauces. No frills, nice Italian hospitality starting with the “Buona sera” from one of the owners that greet and seat you, and the tables with white block paper on clean white... More

This restaurant is easily the best Italian restaurant in Laural. The owners actually grew up in Italy an import some of their ingredients from there. This is not a chain restaurant, and you can also buy things like sausage, pasta or sauce from them homemade.

This place has had a great reputation for a long time...I guess this has stopped them from updating their menu and location. The food is bland and lacks seasoning. If we hadn't ordered dessert it would have gotten 1 star. The Tirimsu was the saving grace and still was sub-par. The perks...the customer service the take out cashier was wonderful,... More

This restaurant is very close to where I live. My friends and I used to go there quite frequently. It is hard to park in their tiny lot because it is busy, and I am truly trying to justify why. While their weekend specials are usually very good, they are also very pricey. Their normal menu items are frankly bland... More

Nice place to take your wife/girlfriend out for a nice romantic meal that won't that is not too hard on your wallet. Don't let the place fool you, looks nicer on the inside than one would think by the looks of the exterior.

Best Italian Restaurant in MD!! Good food and atmosphere. Crowds on Sat. and Sunday evenings, but people don't mind the wait. Love the clams/linguini.

I heard a lot about it as a local homemade kinda place. I didn't think much of it. The deli side looks interesting for fresh pasta take out.

Pasta Plus is located in a strip of stores that are deserted. Don't let that fool you. The food is wonderful, especially the pasta. Crespoline may be my favorite dish, but you can't go wrong with the pasta dishes. However, I prefer the timballo to the lasagna. It's lighter and tastier. Ask for dressing on the side, as there is...

Past Plus has been in Laurel for over 20 years. You want Italian food, you want PAST PLUS. The food has genuine Italian taste that may not be good for all folks. This is as close to the real Italian food you would find in Italy,.

We are Never disappointed except for the salads. Too much iceberg or romaine lettuce, not enough dark leafy greens. This is especially true of takeout.
