This is a unique Italian restaurant. The times that I was there, they had no menu. Mikey, the owner I think, would come out and talk to the patrons to see what you liked and didn't like. Some time later, he would come down and...More

You go to a small, pleasant, Italian restaurant. You're asked what you won't eat. That's it, the meal proceeds- with wine! After salad, course after course comes forth- each time you finish something wonderful, you're asked if you want more. Home style approach with great...More

The food here is seriously good. If you're looking or a dining experience where the chef prepares your meal and there's no menu to choose from, this place is for you. You won't know what it's costing but it's reasonable. We'll be back for sure!

I've been out of the area for five years and was delighted to once again experience Pasta Freska and the surprise meal. Always a treat to not know what the next course will be. They also have great wines.

No menu! They come to your table and talk about what you would like to eat. We wanted a little of everything. We started off with a salad and enjoyed pasta, eggplant, lamb, beef and more. We felt like we were back in Italy.
