Love their pizza combos with garden salad. Best pizzas are the pomodoro, vegetarian, and pesto chicken. Excellent service. They remember my order quite frequently. Also great for catering.

There are Presto Pasta's in Camarillo and Newbury Park as well as this one in Ventura. The menus are the same and the food very good. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Lots of pasta choices and their sauces are very good. Dining room is clean and the staff is always friendly and... More

Got it home and the shrimps were burned to a blackened crisp, pasta was like overcooked mush. She couldn't even finish eating it. I had the meat lasagna....MEH! Had better,... More

Consistently good food. They have many choices on the menu, even Shrimp Scampi- try all and pick what is best for you. I love their spaghetti and meat sauce with meatballs- they do skimp a bit on meat sauce, but I always ask for extra sauce and they are glad to oblige. I also love their Chicken Marsala and fresh...

We've been a fan of Presto Pasta for many years, every since the original opened in Santa Barbara. Over the years, we've tried and enjoyed lasagna, spaghetti with marinara sauce, chicken picatta, and chicken caesar salad. The regular caeser salad is quite good. Garlic bread is above average. Surroundings are not fancy but service is always friendly and quick and... More

Had their spaghetti with meat sauce, got a side of meat sauce as I noticed looking around they we're not generous on the sauce portion with your meal. Garlic bread was ok. Salad above average. Have a great soda dispenser many choices just select from a screen to dispense. All in all I thought it was average for a franchise... More

Presto a Pasta is a fast food restaurant. They have the typical above the counter menu and small simple tables. But if you are on the mood for Italian food fast, this is a good place. The food is very tasty except for the bread. It is clean and they bring the food to your table and clean it when... More
