Best deal on pasta in Columbia. Homemade, well seasoned and you can taste the love. Spend less at a chain and you will be disappointed. You can spend more and get less value. Best italian in columbia
The food and service was top notch. However, the noise level was deafening. People were actually yelling to speak to each other. This was our first visit and won’t be our last. We’ll just make sure not to go on a night when we have a headache. I felt this was a nicer restaurant but was disappointed in the clientele being so loud. I expected more out of a restaurant on Forest Drive. Again, this would not stop me from going back. The food is absolutely worth the volume. If you are looking for a quiet cozy dinner, this is not the place. I would love for them to be open for lunch. This would be a great place for a girl lunch!
Always awesome! Always delicious!! Love and miss this place everyday!!
Great food as usual!
We took a friend for her first time Thursday night. She thoroughly enjoyed it and will come from Irmo more often to join us at Pasta Fresca. We always enjoy the food and excellent service!
It was so loud that we had to go outside to have a conversation. They need to do something about the noise level. The concrete floor and nothing else to absorb the sound from people talking really needs to be dealt with.
Always great food!
I had the chicken bacon Gorgonzola. It was good not great! Chicken was a little over cooked. Needed mushrooms.
Always a good place for a meal, the only distraction is the high noise level. Food is good, as is the service. Despite it being a busy Thursday, our dinner with friends never felt rushed.
So delicious!! I loveee the seafood sante fe and will be returning to have it again soon!
The food was outstanding. The atmosphere was great. Was a quaint little restaurant.
Manager needs a little buffing up!!
Food and servierst excellent. A little loud but overall great dinner.
We go to Pasta Fresca once a month, every month. We've done this since 2004...we used to go to another locally-owned eatery and when they closed we switched to PF. We've been very happy with our meals and service!
Our company dinner meeting was fantastic. The server Shelby was amazing. The food was delicious. We will be back for company functions as well as individual visits by employees whom were first time visitors. Thanks for everything!
Great atmosphere and the food is delicious
I would definitely recommend this restaurant
We have eaten there numerous times in the past and have always enjoyed the food. This time however, the food was no way up the the standards as before. Everyone at our table of four ate let than half of the order. The sauces were to oily and the pasta was stuck together in big clumps. Took it home but threw it away.
Everyone in my party was very happy with what they got! Stevie, our waitress, was excellent, and the food was hot! This is usually one of the things that I complain about.
Good Customer Service. We enjoyed the food and environment.
Been going here for 3 years now. It is the place my daughter and her friends want to go eat. Consistently good never a bad meal. Beast choice for pasta in columbia
My husband is totally dairy free and they were able to accommodate. Appetizers were scallops wrapped in bacon and bruschetta!!! Dinners: Spinach & chicken lasagna, spaghetti with meat sauce, chicken on spinach spaghetti, and chicken parm on spinach...all dishes cooked to perfection. Very generous portions!
Thank you so much for making my sons graduation dinner a fantastic experience! We ended up having a party of 20 and I have to give a huge thanks to our waitress she was phenomenal! Not only was the service great from beginning to end, our entrees were excellent! Thank you again for being a contribution to a wonderful evening that my family will always remember.
My food wasn't as flavorful as I had hoped. My friends enjoyed it and the cheese bread was excellent. Staff was friendly and accommodating. I woul go again and order something else.
We just moved to the Columbia area and tried Pasta Fresca as recommended by a friend. It was delicious! Service was quick, pleasant, and accommodating. We did the half loaf, brussels sprouts appetizer, and we each tried a different pasta dish.
The food here is hit or miss. We stopped going for a time, because the food wasn't as good. We decided to give it a try again, and the food was better.
Always great service!
Food was awesome! Out waitress was slow to bring the second glass of wine. She was reminded and still my brother in law had almost finished his meal. Waitress apologized, but too late. We had to ask about the specials. She had to go get a slip of paper with them on it then handed it to us. She was great with replenishing our water glasses.
Table of 4. All enjoyed our meal, including the loaded bread as an app. Would only suggest cutting the loaf of bread all the way through. Had a very hard time tearing pieces off. Sauces were great!
Great place to entertain a special guest ! Loved the decor and the servers were very knowledgeable and helpful for our special occasion .
The food is so good, and the service is always great, but the restaurant is so cold! That's why I rated the ambiance lower.
Always loved Pasta Fresca! Ever since it was on St. Andrews Road! The food was amazing and our server Olivia was a gem! Will definitely return!
Our dinner for Mother's Day at Pasta Fresca was terrific. The appetizer (Caprese Salad) was very good, and the salads before our meal were fresh and tasty. Our entrees were delicious. The servings were large and scrumptious. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. We really enjoy Pasta Fresca!
Food was excellent. Service was a bit slow, despite not being crowded. The manager came over a couple of times and did what the server should have done, without being asked by us. Food quality, taste, and amount made up for the service.
PF is one of our go to restaurants. It is so good and very reasonably priced. The staff and owners are great! Great food and great atmosphere.
The restaurant had a stagnant water smell, when we walked in the door this past Friday evening. The food was greasy and flavorless, my gnocchi was floating in grease. Our waitress was very abrupt and there were extremely long periods of wait time between drink refills or acknowledgement of any kind. Most of your wait staff kept huddling at the front desk, chatting and giggling.
Definitely not worth the money, Olive Garden is similarly priced and actually tastes better.
Very nice restaurant! Our party was pretty big, but our waitress was not terribly attentive. The food and overall service was amazing and we will most defiantly be back.
We had two groups for dinner, and the service was excellent for our private party, as well as our regular table. The food was incredible, and we couldn't have been more please with our evening out. Thanks to the servers who handled our crowd with patience and pleasant service! A special thank you to Emily for accommodating the private party on short notice!
I had the pasta with meatballs and it was served with not enough marinara sauce. I think you could take the salad up a notch as well. My wife had the seared scallops with asparagus and she said it was really good! We like coming to Pasta Fresca and will be back.
The food was excellent and the service was good. I would have liked to order Carbonaro but it wasn't on the menu. I believe it was the last time I was at Pasta Fresca.
