We chose The Pasta Shelf because of the reviews on this site, but I must say we were not wowed by any means. We found both our dishes to be rather bland. The upside was that the service was good and the portion size was enough to bring home leftovers.

My friend and I have been here many times. The service is always exceptional and so is the food. I'm never afraid to try something new because I just know it will be good. Very large portions of delicious Italian cuisine at a very affordable price.

This is a small unassuming restaurant, lacking the cozy atmosphere associated with most Italian places, but with good food nonetheless. The Greek salad was particularly good, fresh and tasty with kalamata olives. You can definitely tell the difference between their freshly made pasta and store bought stuff. It's much tastier and softer. This made the pasta dishes really nice. I... More

My wife & I enjoy having lunch here when we come to Kingston. She always orders a pasta dish & I try to get something different each time. Everything is always fresh & full of flavour. We like to share one of their "Tiger Brownies".

Every time we get pasta from the pasta shelf, we are so happy with our food. Great salad and dressing. Quick and affordable. Better than East Side Mario's.

This restaurant is not pretentious. There is not much decor in it and the seating area is noting to write home about. But the food, aaah the food. Some of the best tasting Italian food you will ever have in your life. From the façade and the dine in part of the restaurant you would wander. The taste says it... More

However the same is true for many "Italian" restaurants in North America. This review is for take-away only as I have never eaten at the restaurant.. It is OK but there is room for improvement

In this place you can either eat in or take out and cook your food at home. Either was the food is very good and not too expensive. Service is quick and nice Italian choices
