The Pasta Shoppe is a quaint Italian restaurant in beautiful downtown Port Washington, WI. The extensive menu offers an array of Italian dishes from pizza to pasta and sandwiches to entrees - many of them are family recipes that came straight from Sicily. The full bar offers beer and wine as well as a selection of refreshing martinis. Make sure to save room for dessert, the tiramisu is to-die-for.
