We like PastaAmore enough to go there for Valentine's Day, though we usually don't need a reason. I use this as an example because even though it was crowded and every table was filled, we had great service and the food was great.

I had the lasagna which was wonderfully done with several different cheeses and baked individually in a round casserole dish. The marinara is homemade and fresh. I will be back for more lasagna!

Authentic Italian food, absolutely delicious and the serve is 5* also!! Love this restaurant. We don't get the pleasure of eating there as much as I'd like to since I"m on a strike low carb diet (health reasons) but every once in a while it is a TOTAL treat!!!!

Service was friendly and courteous, drinks were not watered down and dinner was excellent. Do not hesitate to stop by. Slightly pricey, not... More

We had dinner tonight & we thought with a name like Pastamore the pasta & sauce would be exceptional. NOT HAPPENING. The calamari were cooked very well but the linguini & sauce had very little flavor. The veal parm was tender but the ziti were pastie. The salads were mediocre & very heavy with vinegar. Another sign of a good... More

Small, family run. Excellent food always prepared for each individual order. The best service. But most of all the food is great!

I have been driving past this place for years! Finally stopped in for dinner and it was such a treat! The service was outstanding and the food was delicious right from the start with the warm bread and dipping oil! Can't wait to go back!

Average Italian food. No one in our party of 4 was overly thrilled. Portions, particularly their version of zuppa di mare, have shrunk. Avoid anything with chicken, it was dry and overcooked.
