Only my 2nd time dining out since March, and I was absolutely thrilled at the cleanliness and safety precautions during our meal. I'm super paranoid and have been following all CDC precautions, and it was so nice to get out, have a glass of wine and a FABULOUS meal, and feel normal for an hour or so. Normal and safe. This can be done, and La Casa Pasta is doing it right ✅

Food lacked taste, appeared heated up and not fresh.
Could barely read the drink menu, it was photo copied.
Espresso martini tasted like chocolate milk.
Hostess when we arrived told us "I hope you didn't get dressed up just to come here" which I found unprofessional and negative toward the restaurant.
Overall, not worth a 2nd visit or recommendation to a friend.

We have been to this restaurant several times over the last few years, the food has always been good, but many of the servers and service itself was poor. That changed when we had DeDe on Sunday. She was lovely, happy, courteous, helpful and took care of us all throughout the evening. We are happy we chose Casa Pasta for my birthday dinner.

We have generally had great experiences here over recent years. The pasta did not seem quite up to standards this time....but the service, soup and bread were great.

Our food was absolutely amazing! We had a 45 minute drive to get there and will make the drive anytime we want Italian! I had crab ravioli that was out of this world. My husband had fusilli santa maria....spectacular!

We can't wait to go back!

Portions are smaller then other Italian places and the crab raviolis tasted like butter. Dinners didn't come with a side salad then was charged $14 for 2 side salads. The service was excellent along with the homemade bread and atmosphere.

My husband and I love this restaurant. It is our new favorite since we moved to the area. Every dish is always prepared to perfection and the service is excellent. We have taken friends to La Casa Pasta because we know the quality is unsurpassed. My only suggestion for improvement would be the lighting. Since many of your patrons appear to be in the 40 plus range, the lighting is rather dim to read the menus. If possible, could you please raise the lights just a bit?

Went here for dinner on Friday night. Service was great. Had to wait about 10 to get the check but overall very content with the service. Food was very good and prepared well even had a little extra to take home. The only drawback is the atmosphere/ambience. The place is a bit dated and needs an overhaul. Sat in the center of the restaurant which is not well lit and fairly dark. Prices may be a bit on the high side for the atmosphere that you are getting. But the food was prepared nicely and service was great. Would like to see the decor updated. Overall not a bad place to go for a upscale casual dinner.

La Casa Pasta is one of our favorite restaurants. We started with calamari which was fried perfectly. I had the eggplant parmigiana and my husband had the lasagna. Both were delicious. We ended the meal with the sorbet sampler, which we both said “Oh Wow”, and We also took home some tiramisu, which is the best we’ve ever tasted. The service was phenomenal. Andriana was our server, she was friendly, attentive but not too much, and liked her job. We highly recommended La Casa Pasta.
