Service was good but I ordered a wedge salad that is supposed to have blue cheese dressing It only had enough for 1/3 of the salad they charged me for more. Which Would not bother me if they put enough on in the first place....My wife’s spicy chicken and shrimp was good except the chicken was dry & tough. The bread wasn’t as fresh as it has been in the past.More

I haven't been to this place in a while so was glad to get the opportunity. The Chicken Lombardi was awesome! I wish I knew how they cooked it so I could try it at home! Staff were friendly and efficient, good value for the...money. Highly recommend!More

The exterior gave us pause; it's a little grungy. But once we stepped inside, that changed. We were seated in the bar area, their choice. Our waitress was super attentive, answering all our questions. We each ordered a cocktail, both were superb. (The person who...had recommended Auntie Pasta's had said they had amazing cocktails. She was correct.) The bread, 2 whole loaves, was served with crunchy roasted garlic and olive oil. Wonderful. The main entrées were huge, neither of us could eat all of it. The flavors were perfectly balanced. I will definitely return.More

Nice staff, great selection of foods. Something for everyone. Food was good. It was really loud, though. Nice bar with lots of specialty drinks.

I don’t like leaving “bad reviews,” but this was the worst service we have had in a long time. It was a busy night, and we expected the wait they told us, but our service once we sat down was below par. The waiter took...our drink orders (waters and a drink from the bar), and then did not return for approximately 15-20 minutes. He brought the drink from the bar but acted surprised when I asked for my water. He then left and did not return for another 15-20 minutes to take our order (he passed us several times). We received our appetizer fairly quickly and it was delicious. He came back to refill our orders, but he left our dishes from our appetizer on our table until the order came out which was 45 minutes - 1 hour after we ordered. We finally flagged him down to check on our food, and he told us the kitchen was getting right on it. He only checked on us if flagged him down. Our food finally came out, and it was hot and tasty. However, we were so put out by the service that we will probably not return if we are in town. It is rather disappointing because we don’t eat out often, and we were just left sitting there for most our dinner with dirty dishes.More

We had an excellent experience at Auntie Pasta’s. Don’t let the cute name fool you. They have a large menu of Italian fare. It is in the same building as Clear Springs, but the food here was much better. I would recommend the spicy shrimp...and chicken. The spice was actually very mild, but the pasta was loaded with chicken and shrimp and the creamy sauce was excellent. Most of the restaurant servers in Nacogdoches are college students from SFA, but we were impressed with the high quality of service. Much better than we have come to expect from small town establishments. Kudos to the food and staff at Auntie Pasta’s.More

First time to try this place and we were impressed. We had the crab cakes for an appetizer and I had the pan seared tilapia. Both were really good. Our waitress was very nice and even gave us suggestions. We will definitely be going back

Mask required from front to table (10 feet) then no mask. Tables back to back no distancing with staff or customers. Management was pathetic when we complained. Never again. I can microwave my own frozen food at home.

We have dined at Auntie Pasta's several times when we ventured to Nac to visit our SFA student. The exposed brick and warm interior make you feel at home. The rafters are high and the kitchen is nearby so it can be a little noisy....On our last visit it was on a Saturday night with a group of people. Service was slow (we didn't get our wine until after we received our entrees) but that is to be expected on a busy night. The crusty bread that is piping hot is delicious. We love the olive oil and garlic dipping sauce. The lasagna is my personal favorite. I think it is a good value at $13.95, large portion (always have some to take home) and you better get there early if you want to have some (limited quantities). We took a cheesecake and tiramisu to go and thoroughly enjoyed those. This is our go to spot in Nacogdoches and we recommend it.More

Went there for lunch. Everything was perfect. Great atmosphere in the historic building. Exceptionally clean, following all COVID guidelines. Was very glad they require masks. Our server Amanda was incredibly attentive. We ordered the Chicken Capone and the Chicken Parmesan. The food was delicious and...the portions plentiful.More

Auntie Pasta’s Besides the unique name of this restaurant the food and service never disappoints. Parking is plentiful and social distancing rules are applied. Tables are spaced far apart and there is hand cleaner as you enter. Started off with an appetizer that was more...than enough for two people. The Uncle Vito’s Italian Nacho is delicious. Comes with Pesto Chips, Italian Sausage, Pepperoncini, Jalapeños, and a Homemade Marinara sauce. Bread is also provided that comes out warm and satisfying; accompanied with Olive Oil. My lunch partner enjoyed fully the Homemade Lasagne. Again a very large portion is not a problem here. For me it was the other unique name on the menu; Forgetabout It! A tasty sandwich that is between a Fresh Italian Loaf. There is Hand Breaded Chicken Medallions, Ham, Bacon, Sautéed Mushrooms, Provolone Cheese, and Alfredo Sauce. The selections along with the size of those dishes makes it a little difficult not to leave this great place without a “People Bag.”More

Really liked everything. I’ve never been to a restaurant where the food came out so quickly! Great atmosphere too. Husband and I shared the wedge salad. Yummy! Loved the addition of the balsamic drizzle. I had the delicious spaghetti & meatballs, husband ate a combo...plate (lasagna, Alfredo & Parmesan chicken) and 9yo daughter had Mac & cheese with fettuccine noodles. We all liked mine the best. Lasagna was really good, we’ve all had better fettuccine and chicken Parmesan was really good too. I didn’t taste the Mac & cheese but it was nearly gone so kiddo must have enjoyed it. Kiddo had chocolate milk that needed much more chocolate, husband had 1/2 sweet & 1/2 reg tea & I tried the Bellini. Good Bellini. Husband ordered the chocolate cake with ice cream for us all to share. Cake was a bit dry. Ice cream was good. All in all we would definitely eat there again.More
