“Basic Small Town Place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

I visited the Pasta house on a business trip at the recommendation from the hotel of something close. When I arrived around 8:30 the place was busy, but the minute I hit the door the smell of fish was strong. I went in hoping it would dissipate, but it did not. I ordered clam chowder and crab cakes and the chower was blah with not alot of flavor. The crab cake fried dark brown and again flavor not very good. I guess I should have ordered pasta as others looked like they were enjoying their meals. The best part was hot homemade rolls with garlic oil. Those were great and they did have a good basic selection of wine. So if you visit order pasta

“Very hit or miss...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

When it's good it's very good, but when they miss, below average. I think the real problem is the pricing, and I don't mind the price when they deliver a great meal but when they don't it makes me wonder why I didn't go to Riccardi's instead. The pizza is really marginal, and might be the worst in the area. The ravioli, very good, but the portions are too small. My wife is a small person and left still hungry after hers. I can easily skip this place.

“OMG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We were driving down from Cape Cod earlier this year and I didn't feel like cooking. We took a detour and decided to check this place out. I'm not a big fan of (non-pizza) Italian Restaurants but this place blew me away. I love shrimp and I can't stop thinking about their Shrimp Mozambique!!! It had just the right amount of spice that made my mouth very happy. I have another favorite place to go to when we visit Bill's aunt. :)

“Not just Pasta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

The pasta house has great pasta, but that's not all. The steak and seafood are also very tasty and superbly prepared. In the last three month I have gone there as a couple and with a group of 12. In both cases the wait staff was very attentive and the food was delivered to the larger party together and perfect. If you are in the area and like Italian, this is the place to go.
