“Like Mama used to make”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

When you're greeted in Italian in an Italian restaurant, it's probably a good start.

While the calamari was overcooked and over sized, the pasta was wonderful--al dente, plenty of garlic, and very nice traditional tastes!

It's nice that they give the women carnations as well.

“Home Away from Home”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

My husband I wanted a quick bite and chose this restaurant because it was close. The feeling of warmth and hominess was immediate. The food was great but way too much for us to finish. We ended up taking it home and having it for lunch the next day.

The wine list is very good for a small restaurant and we easily found something suitable. I recommend you give this one a try.

The food was very good, portions ample and the staff were very friendly. Liked the special touch at the end of the meal when I was given a carnation!

“Italian heaven!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

One of the best pasta places I have ever visited, and what a charming atmosphere with a divine garden to sit in and sip wine and hold the hand of the one you have loved for so long and with such passion. The fare is home made, ardently Italian and the prices reasonable. Lovely Italian music and a beaming propeitor ushers you into a night of romance, warmth and excellent tastes left on the tongue. The sauces rich, the breads homemade, the salads fragnant, and you leave without a worried expression and the need for a second mortgage on the property. Worth a visit or two or even three.

“Excellent fresh, quality pastas.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We keep returning to La Spaghetteria more and more. You can look down on the area where they make the pasta and bread fresh daily. The owner, Salavatore, can usually be found in the covered entrance area cooking up a storm on the BBQ's and grilles he has set up out there. Always a friendly greeting. It is home style Italian, family style atmosphere. By family style I don't mean Chuck E Cheese, I mean It feels like you are being hosted by the family. We keep working our way through the menu and shall continue doing so. The salads are very good ,the pastas are great, and they have most pastas available in small, large, or extra large portions. You won't have to go hungry or you wont feel you are taking home a mountain of food when ordering for children.There are early bird specials available before 7:00p.m. , so you don't have to be all that early really. Otherwise prices are quite reasonable just the same. We have yet to try the pizza but that is on our list for next time. Enjoy.
