This has been one if our favorite restaurants since my husband and I were 16 that was 30 years ago. We still enjoy going there. The owners and staff are always friendly. I love the spedini or the meatballs. Atmosphere is perfect and you can even color on the paper tablecloths perfect entertainment when our kids were little.

Was visiting from out of town and had dinner here based on a recommendation. It was busy on a weeknight which I felt was a good sign but we were not impressed with either of our orders. I got the spedini and it was dry and flavorless. The penne and sauce that accompanied it tasted like it was from a... More

We used to LOVE this restaurant, but the last two times were not good. The pizza was not at all close to being the one we used to have. The toppings slid off the crust in one congealed mess with every bite. The chicken and mushroom alfredo was tasteless. The garlic bread that was always a treat did not have... More

Very friendly staff and a lovely dining room. TV is on mute so you can watch if you wish but it disturbs no one. The seating by the window is nice. They have upstairs seating as well. The wine list is good. The antipasto salad was fresh, filling and had lots of delicious oregano and oil. Meats and cheese were... More

It was cute and service was actually great. It really disappoints me when local places that are fairly well established underwhelm, but the one thing I absolutely could not get past is the fact that none - N O N E- of the pasta is made in house. I went there expecting handmade pasta in the dishes. We should have... More

Mark R - We are so sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your dinner with us last week. Although our pasta is not made house, we use a high-quality 100% durum semolina for our dried pastas and have our raviolis made locally. We do make all of our own sauces, meatballs and several other dishes in house. We... More

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!

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
