When we lived in Laurel this was a once a week stop whether at the market or the restaurant. Still one of the best Italian food restaurants I have ever visited. You will not eat anything that is not outstanding.

Don't let the exterior deter you. The inside is cozy and friendly. We always have a very pleasant experience when we eat there. My favorite entrée is Eggplant Parmigiana with spaghetti and for dessert I always get the Zabaglione with Fresh Fruit, a delicious custard. Portion size is more than ample. Can't wait 'til our next visit.

We picked up a pasta with linguini sausage, with good noodles, just OK sausage & a skimpy amount of just OK sauce. The chocolate cake was good, as was the strawberry tart.

Grandma would love this place. Our group had a wide variety of dishes and all were quite pleased. Very authentic, not overpriced. Portions could have been @just a little larger. If you order meat dishes or pasta dishes make note they are just that. All meat, all pasta. Order to share or ask the staff for recommendations. Good wine selections... More

Very impressed with Pasta Plus. A friend of mine raved about this place for several years, and I finally had a chance to try for lunch. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, and it's in a weird strip mall kind of building, but the food and service were excellent. Had chicken parmesan and a side salad. Definitely...

Pasta Plus is nestled into a strip mall and given the name and location, it'd be easy to mistake for a Fazoli's knockoff. The reality couldn't be further from the truth. The decor inside is very nice, warm and inviting. The staff did a great job. Warm, fresh bread gets you started. What's most impressive here is how fresh everything... More

You may have to wait for a while but this unassuming storefront produces some of the best handmade pasta in the region. The service, too, is always topnotch. This location shows what a good family-run restaurant can still do when compared to the faceless, anonymous chains.

Excellent food and service that is hard to find. Forget the look from the outside and you will be surprised at the quality and variety of the food. Get there early as it gets very busy with regular customers. You will become a regular too after your first dinner there.

Followed the advice of tripadvisor reviews to find this place. They did not let me down! Pulling into the parking lot near 5 o'clock and I saw people heading to the front door to beat the other people headed that way. I was lucky to find one of the last tables empty. A few more minutes and the line went... More
