Our first visit to this restaurant. We live in the Mukwonago area. Our daughter chose Pt Washington to be married. We searched the area for a place that would take 30-40 people on a weeknight. Almost all closed at 9PM. I called the Pasta shoppe and the rest is history. They stayed open as long as we needed. We had... More

We had a great table with a nice view of the street. Pasta was plentiful and tasty. The atmosphere was open and family oriented.

Called ahead to be sure of Kids Eat Free. We were told that anything on the menu is free. Enjoyed a nice dinner and even sprung for a kids drink ($3!!!) and dessert to share because after all, "Kids Eat Free."

Our party of 5 was seated upstairs for our 7:00 reservation. As always, the food and service were outstanding. My sausage ravioli was perfect and the fresh garlic bread is warm and served with the meal.

The Pasta Shoppe was recommended by a local merchant and did not disappoint. The lasagna with meatballs was great and served with salad and garlic bread. The dinner was enough for that evening and the night.

We were guests for dinner here and had not been there for about a year. We ordered the fried eggplant appetizer. It was awful. It looked like someone emptied the bottom of a package of frozen crinkle fries (with little pieces and all) into a deep fryer, over cooked them and put on a plate. The batter was heavy and... More

Have never had a bad meal here. The pasta and pizza is very good. I rate all Italian restaurants on the quality of their Chicken Parm, because everyone makes it. Their's is very good. This restaurant may not be the one you planned on going to, but you will be pleasantly surprised. Service and waitstaff are very good.

This has been one if our favorite restaurants since my husband and I were 16 that was 30 years ago. We still enjoy going there. The owners and staff are always friendly. I love the spedini or the meatballs. Atmosphere is perfect and you can even color on the paper tablecloths perfect entertainment when our kids were little.
