“good food, dated dining room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

The food here is excellent but the dining room badly needs a makeover. The average age of the clientele is about 90. They also have a carryout which will get you the same food a lot faster.

“Hidden Secret”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

I first went here on business lunches and was amazed at the excellent food and reasonable prices. If you didn't know where it was, you'd certainly never find it. The pasta is home made as are all the sauces, and it virtually doesn't matter what you order it's good. I actually got hassenpfeffer (sp?) here, and that too was excellent, although rabbit is not a common ingredient of Italian cooking! My wife adores the place, but again, we don't live anywhere near Laurel.
It's generally crowded because of its popularity, and no wonder. Worth getting off 95 and looking for it!

“Random location and decor but excellent food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

My husband and I go to Pasta Plus a couple times a year and never regret it. The decor is outdated and a bit rundown but the food tastes delicious and the prices are very reasonable. I have the shrimp scampi and the shrimp were large (although they dont give you that many) and he has spaghetti. Both dishes are excellent and highly recommended. We usually do dinners in DC but we live in Laurel so every once in a while we remember that we don't have to drive all the way to the city for fine cuisine. Good stuff.

“Excellent Italian food at a strip mall in the suburbs.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Don't be fooled by its outside appearance or its location, this Italian restaurant is will worth a visit. The food and the service are is excellent. My wive loves their seafood salad and I am a big fan of the Pizza Rustica. We have made several visits as we worked on my wife's mother's house and found it excellent each time. There is always a crowd for lunch. On Sunday's the dining room is closed but the several tables in the take out area are available. Give it a try.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

It's a good place to get some great authentic Italian but the service was a little slow and can get really really crowded and packed . The should look at getting a bigger location.
