What kind of restaurant in this day and age doesn't take credit cards? At least they post it on the door, I would rather have known before I drove down there!

What a great birthday lunch. Pasta Market really knows what they're doing. Eight of us went for lunch to celebrate a family members birthday. The bruschetta and antipasto for appetizers were excellent. Tried the asparagus ravioli with garlic cream sauce special & would definitely order again. The pasta is homemade and fresh. Everyone was happy with their meals. Service was... More

We went to Pasta Market after checking on TripAdvisor. It is labeled the best restaurant in Malden. The experience started well, with clean salon, and partial view of the kitchen.

Everything tasted (was) homemade! The pasta was delicious and the pizza was well priced for its big size. Don't leave without trying the tiramisu! One of the best I ever had! However, the one thing that was weird was that they cleaned the tables with Windex.

Love this restaurant. Parking can be a little tricky, but the food is soooo good! Of course, when you go here, you should order a pasta dish (it is called "Pasta Market"); it's made fresh daily. The restaurant itself is on the small side, but the atmosphere is very North-End Boston like.

We love this restaurant! It's like going to a restaurant in the North End without the traffic & high prices.The pasta is made fresh & all the food is cooked to order in an open kitchen! You will not be disappointed!

Awesome food and service! Really delicious pasta and generous potions. And Prisco and his server went out of their way to make us feel comfortable even though we were staying almost past closing.
