I ordered the pesto pasta w chicken -- I got mine to go. The ambiance in the place doesn't feel very restaurant-y but that wasn't an issue for me. The food was very good. Happy to find some tasty pesto in MQT. I'll stop by whenever I visit.

We were in town with a U19 women's soccer team and in need of food catering services capable of handling 50+ people. The hotel we were staying at (Country Inn & Suites) recommended The Pasta Shop. We were not disappointed - it was fantastic. Mark, the owner, was incredibly helpful in ordering with menu suggestions and appropriate quantities. We ordered... More

What The Pasta Shop is lacking in ambiance it makes up for in delicious food with large portions at a great price. I wish they served wine. It would be perfect then!

Pasta shop is awesome. They've got great daily specials. my personal favorite is the chicken pesto genaves. Their breads are all very good and their brownies are AMAZING. Make sure to get one!

One of my "go-to's" in this town. Order the special and you'll get a great salad (loooove the dressing), yummy garlic bread, and a plate of pasta. I eat it there or to go, it's good both ways.

The pasta shop is a great place to go for a quick work lunch or some takeout. It's incredibly reasonable in price and you get quite a large portion of pasta. It's atmosphere isn't the greatest, as they only have a small amount of tables--but I usually get my meals to go and I've yet to be disappointed.

Decided to try this place, as we wanted Italian, freshly made and reasonably priced. We always thought this was a store to simply buy homemade pasta. Glad we found out otherwise! Food is all homemade! Delicious Southern Italian! Nicely sized portions! Nicely priced! Very friendly staff and owner!! It may look small and store-like, but the food is tremendous!!

Food is very good. Although it is ready pretty quickly, it is not "fast food". It is much better. The place isn't fancy, but if you want a great meal, you can't beat it.

Boy do we love it here! FRESH food! We had a wait due to a group of students ahead of us, but it was well worth it! Prices are a bit higher than you'd expect but it's the price to pay for homemade pasta! It's well worth the couple bucks extra. This is on our short list of places to... More

The best pasta, pizza bread and garlic bread around! Fresh, hearty meals for a small price. The restaurant has limited seating but don't let that stop you! I visit every time I am in Marquette!
