The boys really like the Pizza. The beer selection is pretty good. I like the Chicken Parmesan and Spaghetti. The bread sticks are always fresh and hot. The salad bar always has fresh ingredients but is a little small compared to other places in the...More

I used to travel to Italy years ago, when I did I always went to an out of the way restaurant to enjoy an authentic pepperoni pizza. It was simple, but always tasted so good. Pizza Pasta Pit somehow duplicates the experience. Only thing missing...More

Solid place for a warm meal with friendly service. Pizza, calzones, pasta, sandwiches, modest salad bar. Outdoor seating in season. Multiple TVs in view in one dining area. Close to Lewis Gale Hospital.

The Pizza Pasta Pit is a casual family-style Italian restaurant. Our menu has something for everyone: wood fired brick oven pizza, made-from-scratch pasta dishes, amazing subs and sandwiches, a fresh salad bar, and much more. We have 11 beers on tap, as well as a great wine selection.

We pride ourselves on our extensive gluten-free menu, which never fails to delight our gluten-free guests.
