Tonight my husband & I were heading up to Green Bay & spontaneously decided to stop in Port Washington for dinner. We saw the big red tomato belonging to The Pasta Shoppe & decided Italian & a good bottle of wine would be wonderful! We made an excellent choice. The meal was delicious! Pasta with the marinara sauce, homemade meatballs... More

Can't say enough good things about this place! High quality, decently priced, and just walking in the place your mouth starts watering from the smell of home made garlic bread.

The Pasta Shoppe has the feel of a family-owned and operated establishment. We admired the photos of a beautiful baby placed in the entrance; the hostess saw us and thanked us for admiring her child. We were seated upstairs for dinner; it's all about family-friendliness. We enjoyed the recommended red wine at a moderate price. We asked about portion sizes,... More

We needed to avoid MKE's rush hour and decided to bail in Port Washington for a meal. TripAdvisor guided us here and wow, we couldn't have had a nicer meal. We asked our server, Sara, for her personal favorite and she recommended the Fettuccini Alfredo with chicken and mushrooms, do we tried that--wowee, what an excellent meal! Can't wait to... More

It's good every now and again. They serve dishes you'd expect and pizza. The menu has some updates. The Burrata caprese was very good.

Service was very good, food was very good. The Spedeini was excellent, my date had the Shrimp Genovese special, both were great. Appetizer(Calamari) was also good. Dessert had the Spumoni bomb, and Tiramisu which were great. Spent a good deal of time there in conversation and were never rushed. Will be back again, thanks for making first date more special.

You will NOT leave here hungry. Really innovative meals like the veggie raviolis that we incredibly tasty. Service is excellent, and the portion sizes are generous as well. We loved the ravioli, the meatballs and the garlic bread which is subtle and extremely flavorful because it's not over done with garlic salt.

Get there early or make sure you have a reservation. My friend and I arrived on a Sunday evening about 5:30 and by 7 it was packed and I now know why. The sauce is the real McCoy. We started with the antipasto salad that had just the right amount of dressing. I then ordered the lasagna, VERY good! It... More

My wife and I were headed back to the Milwaukee area after a vacation in the Wisconsin Northwoods, and wanted to stop for one more good meal before we got home. We found this gem thanks to Trip Advisor and were able to call ahead and get a table for two. The location on Port Washington's Main Street is charming.... More
