We both had spedini tonight and decided it was to long since we last ate at Pasta shoppe ! The food and our server Mandy where great ! We had hoped to catch Sully, (aka;Mike)but heard he had a well deserved night off.

We were guests for dinner here and had not been there for about a year. We ordered the fried eggplant appetizer. It was awful. It looked like someone emptied the bottom of a package of frozen crinkle fries (with little pieces and all) into a deep fryer, over cooked them and put on a plate. The batter was heavy and... More

Have never had a bad meal here. The pasta and pizza is very good. I rate all Italian restaurants on the quality of their Chicken Parm, because everyone makes it. Their's is very good. This restaurant may not be the one you planned on going to, but you will be pleasantly surprised. Service and waitstaff are very good.

This has been one if our favorite restaurants since my husband and I were 16 that was 30 years ago. We still enjoy going there. The owners and staff are always friendly. I love the spedini or the meatballs. Atmosphere is perfect and you can even color on the paper tablecloths perfect entertainment when our kids were little.

Was visiting from out of town and had dinner here based on a recommendation. It was busy on a weeknight which I felt was a good sign but we were not impressed with either of our orders. I got the spedini and it was dry and flavorless. The penne and sauce that accompanied it tasted like it was from a... More

We used to LOVE this restaurant, but the last two times were not good. The pizza was not at all close to being the one we used to have. The toppings slid off the crust in one congealed mess with every bite. The chicken and mushroom alfredo was tasteless. The garlic bread that was always a treat did not have... More

Very friendly staff and a lovely dining room. TV is on mute so you can watch if you wish but it disturbs no one. The seating by the window is nice. They have upstairs seating as well. The wine list is good. The antipasto salad was fresh, filling and had lots of delicious oregano and oil. Meats and cheese were... More

It was cute and service was actually great. It really disappoints me when local places that are fairly well established underwhelm, but the one thing I absolutely could not get past is the fact that none - N O N E- of the pasta is made in house. I went there expecting handmade pasta in the dishes. We should have... More
