I used to travel to Italy years ago, when I did I always went to an out of the way restaurant to enjoy an authentic pepperoni pizza. It was simple, but always tasted so good. Pizza Pasta Pit somehow duplicates the experience. Only thing missing is the cobblestone streets. The pizza is great and so is a value.

Solid place for a warm meal with friendly service. Pizza, calzones, pasta, sandwiches, modest salad bar. Outdoor seating in season. Multiple TVs in view in one dining area. Close to Lewis Gale Hospital.

Although I had not been there for a few years I visited Pizza Pasta Pit and was rewarded with a great Mew York style pizza. The service was excellent and the pizza was terrific with smooth well cooked crust and perfect cheese and toppings. Informal and casual, come as you are and enjoy.

Was just recently introduced to this restaurant as I normally don't do pizza. The food was good and well priced. The service is quick and friendly. The building was tired, but the good news is they are remodeling this week. Can't wait to go back and see how it turns out.

Stopped in and was seated in a large covered patio/deck area. Had a small pizza and some garlic bread. Very good food. They offered about 10 craft beers on tap. Good service and priced reasonably. Angelica was our server and she was great. The atmosphere was very comfortble...fine for the whole family.

Stopped in for a quick dinner before the ballgame. We were seated and served quickly and efficiently. Most of our group ordered the baked spaghetti which was good although I felt it could have been served a little warmer. One person ordered the eggplant which they said was terrific. I am still working on getting the sauce stain off my... More

There were several pasta selections, a small salad bar in the front. We ate in the covered outdoor area it was cozy even though the night was a little cool. The outer area is much larger and can accommodate larger groups. We stuck to pizza and apps. The wings were not NY standard for hot but crispy with some heat.... More
