Every time we go to Devine Pastabilities I am never disappointed. The service is great and I always feel welcome. The staff is warm and inviting, and the food is great. It's nice to be able to customize my salads since I try not to eat too many carbs.

This place never disappoints. Weather your dining in or taking out, the food and service is always spot-on. Every person I take to this place ends up craving for more and there is no other restaurant like it.

Devine Pastabilities has more than one delicious vegetarian option in addition to the meaty foods. Perfect place to lunch with grandchildren - or anyone else. Friendly staff, good prices, good food. Free parking and on bus route. This is one of our "go-to" places. Thumbs up!

Quick service, friendly staff and great torpasta! Pesto tortellini is my favorite. Folks who have never been: torpasta is made by stuffing pasta (and meat if you like- I get chicken) into a large roll. And bonis, the bread is even amazing

Take a delicious hoagie roll. Remove some of the middle. Stuff it with delicious salad or pasta dish. Pick it up. It's Devine!! The Pastabilities are endless. The kids love it - and so do the grown-ups. There are also beers. And a Tortuga for dessert. Yum!

You gotta go. This place is in a nondescript strip mall but has the most yummy food. Imagine a torpedo or hoagie roll hollowed out and then filled with all types of pasta delights. Yummms!!! They also have killer garlic fries (everyone must share) and offer salads and other Italian goodies to boot. It's good, prices are fair, and the... More

Good concept, but the execution falls short. Overall food taste was rather average and lacking flavor. The spaghetti and meatballs torpasta may have come out of a can. Also, the bbq chicken salad stuffed bread was way too overdressed. All you tasted was bbq sauce. The highlight of my visit was the staff. Very personable.

Hi Kristi, I apologize your food wasn't more satisfying. We are training a few people and I to have noticed too much dressing on torsalads. I will continue to work with them to take more care in portioning properly and getting recipes correct. Thank you for writing a review it helps me show them the importance of following recipes.
