What a treat this place was on my last night here in Roswell. We went with friends and sat at a large oval table I had calamari and seafood pasta which was delicious and with so many flavours and really authentic. My boyfriend ate the meat cannelloni which was fabulous. For early evening the place was buzzing and such variety... More

Stopped in for lunch after 1:00PM and it was pretty quiet. The hostess and waitress were both friendly and we could choose a booth by the window which was lovely. We came for eggplant and had the pasta special which was cheese tortellini with mushroom and walnut sauce, a fine hardy winter dish with layers of flavors. The eggplant slices... More

I came here for lunch recently with a fairly large group. This seemed to overwhelm the waitstaff. It took over half an hour for the bill to be resolved and for credit cards to be run. My ravioli was fine, but I was hungry about an hour or two later. Not bad for Roswell, but nothing to write home about.

I am 67 and have not needed ID to order an alcoholic beverage in years (unless the waiter was joking and hoping for a bigger tip.) However the waiter here was NOT joking. As we had just completed a 10 hour drive, we were looking forward to a relaxing dinner with a glass of wine. My husband had to make... More

Have eaten here before with my husband but this was a solo business trip. Came in for glass of wine after work. Other than a young bartender who tossed empty bottles in the trash making unnecessary noise it was an enjoyable Happy Hour. (He was learning and trying very hard but bag throwing glass). Went back to hotel to clean... More

Our food was delicious: Spaghetti, eggplant roll-up, pizza and bruschetta. Wait service was excellent. We were disappointed that they were out of cannolis.

I could see upon entering I was under dressed but the staff treated me very well. Great food. The atmosphere is set in a very Italian setting.

I love Italian food, so my first night out in Roswell I took my classmate to Pasta Cafe. I decided to try the Lobster Ravioli rather than the Lasagna chosen by my friend. Both were delicious, and my portion was large enough for another meal. The linen tablecloths and napkins and the attentive service of our waitress added to the... More

This restaurant is not for snacking, they will serve you more than enough food so you can me stuffed and still have to take food home, and even better is that they don't decrease their quality in order to provide you with quantity. Therefore you get the best of both worlds.
