Always like going to La Casa Pasta before Covid 19 & still do. Only have ate inside 2 times so far but they do a great job spacing out everyone & the food is still delicious like always. Our Waiter Alex we've had the 2 times this year is great !

Let’s start with Jaime. She was attentive and knew her menu. We treated our friends to dinner because Covid has kept us apart. Their veal and pasta dishes were so good, only one had leftovers to bring home. The strappy guys licked their plates clean. The Burrata chess was a huge hit as well as the sautéed calamari. Bread basket with olive oil to dip. Hungry yet? After dinner coffee. One with Baileys , the other with amaretto. We will def be back!!!!

We are moving out of the area but made sure to make another stop at La Casa Pasta. Even in these difficult times, they did not disappoint. The prices have gone up but I fully understand. I want them to make it!

My husband and I enjoyed our 51st Anniversary Dinner at La Casa Pasta. We were pleased to be greeted with "happy anniversary" by our host before we were seated, and informed that we would receive complimentary desserts. Our waitress was very pleasant and the atmosphere was great. We enjoyed our dinner. There was social distancing in place which added to the comfort of dining. Thank you for a lovely evening to the staff of La Casa Pasta!

We had a great meal served by a superb waitress, Casey. It was very enjoyable because we weren't rushed and courses were brought out at the proper times. The restaurant was pretty full to limits of COVID; there was an empty table between guests.

Excellent meal served appropriately (not rushed). Casey, our waitress, was fantastic and we are trying to arrange a Christmas get-together with friends in December. If we are able to do so, we would like Casey to be our waitress once again.

We always love this experience. The food is good. Have had better. The sauce/gravy is a little sweet for me but it wouldn't stop me from going back to eat again, which we do on our anniversary every year. The sautéed calamari and broccoli rabe are excellent choices. A little pricey but the portions are very generous. We always have eats for the next day.

This was our first time eating at La Casa Pasta. It was an enjoyable experience and we will be going back.

The ambiance was lovely quiet and the staff friendly.

The food was quite good and I am looking forward to trying other items on the menu.

Last night we had the shrimp and crabmeat appetizer and I chicken parmigiana (very good) and my wife had one of the seafood specials that she said was excellent.

Overall a very good experience and we will be going back in the near fture.

Only my 2nd time dining out since March, and I was absolutely thrilled at the cleanliness and safety precautions during our meal. I'm super paranoid and have been following all CDC precautions, and it was so nice to get out, have a glass of wine and a FABULOUS meal, and feel normal for an hour or so. Normal and safe. This can be done, and La Casa Pasta is doing it right ✅
