“Not another Vegas Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Friendly service--the owner came to speak with us find out about us and was an engaging guy who, with his brother, has created a special place to eat in the desert. The menu had the obligatory pasta dishes but then took off with deliciously marvelous departures from the ordinary. Each of the two of us had the same special--blissfully flavored and light ravioli with excellent chicken sausage and shrimp. A teasing of sauce and we were in heaven. The wine list was well-balanced and fairly priced. Charming, modern place. Cannot wait to return.

“Excellant food and even better service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

The place is perfect for a quiet evening with that romantic person that loves quality Italian food. The restaurant is small, but is cozy and quiet. The prices are reasonable for the portions, the quality of food but they also include a very nice salad. The real reason that my wife and I go for the great service, Gianna or one of the owners are always on hand to make sure that you have a great meal. If you go on a weekday or weekend before 7:00 you might have to wait a few minutes for a table but, it is worth the wait.

“Delightful evening with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

The place is perfect for a pleasant evening with friends as the food is good, the prices a bit high but the ambiance is wonderful. Contemporary art and sculpture are everywhere and the place is colorful. Best yet there is no push to get you to leave so everyone just naturally relaxes.

“Still great in its new location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

When the Pasta Shop & Ristorante was located on Eastern Avenue, I always marveled at how the restaurant stayed in business despite a drab strip mall location in a declining part of town. Of course, that "not so great" location made me really think that the food there must be really good. However, it was fortuitous that this beloved Italian joint relocated to Henderson.

Pasta Shop seemingly always survived because of its incredible food, and the fact that they made pasta for some of the larger casinos in town. While the new place has better bathrooms, a sleek look, and great art on the walls, the bottom line is always the quality of the food. So while no one will fret about going to its nice locale in the Henderson suburbs, they will ultimately go for the same reason as those who trudged to its Eastern Avenue location. The Mediterranean Sausage and the Chicken Davida and all the other glorious entrees are still there, and that is what defines any restaurant.

Sprinkle in an affable staff, a gracious owner, a nice wine list, great desserts, and well, I think you get the idea.
