We come here often. It is not your run of the mill Italian restaurant. The food is excellent and you can find unusual items. All of the pasta is made in house. Service is friendly and attentive. Usually you can find a groupon which helps as the prices are a little higher than some places, but worth it.

We ordered food to take-out on a Sunday afternoon. We called ahead and the food was ready and waiting when we arrived 30-45 minutes later. We ordered two Pasta House Special Salads, and Lasagna which came with a side salad. Everything came with sliced bread, but they didn't give us any butter for it. The salads were good with a...

I met three friends for lunch today at Pasta House and had a great experience. Our server, Carla, was friendly and very accommodating, even taking the time to take pictures of our group with our cell phones and camera. I ordered the Greek salad which was fresh and delicious. The ricotta cheesecake with raspberry sauce was light and very tasty.... More

We love this place. Great food, wonderful staff, full bar. No pretense - just the right stuff. Seriously. The linguine Capri is sublime. All hand made. The salad dressing is exceptional. You cant go wrong. Maria and Lindsay are friendly and efficient - hats off to them! Enjoy!

Met a friend here for an early dinner. Very nice decor and fine dining atmosphere. We both had the French Onion Soup to start. It was delicious. Could have been a little warmer but still very good. They have several dishes with homemade pasta. I had cheese ravioli with Alfredo sauce. Very good. My friend had the manicotti. The portions... More

I've eaten at Pasta House many times with family and friends, but have not taken time to review. Pasta House is very good Italian food and the prices are reasonable. They do not serve pizza, fyi. My favorite appetizers are the calamari fritti and the Oysters (in season). Their house salads are always fresh, but they are small. The bread... More

We've been a constant patron of this wonderful restaurant for years. Forget where it is located...it's the real deal. Everything is fresh and made by hand. Their seafood dishes are not to be missed. The sauces are not overdone and add to the experience. The staff are all smiles, helpful in making recommendations, and always make us feel at home.

Top of the line italian food, extensive wine list and great service. There is nothing to improve here and each visit is a memorable experience. The landlord needs to improve the potholes in the parking lot. Once you enter expect to be transported to Italy.

Had 2 appetizers. Both were so sub-par we almost left. Oysters Rockefeller were smothered in under-drained spinach, had a tiny piece of undercooked bacon and no cheese! Pretty horrible. The minestrone was watery with very undercooked vegetables. Not at all appealing. Thank goodness we didn't leave. Both of us had the seafood cannelloni and it was excellent! In fact it... More

Sauces are always fresh and homemade. I have never ordered anything I didn't like. The owner frequently visits every table to make sure your dining experience is a good one.
