My husband, nephew and his girlfriend went to dinner here and we loved it. The appretizer and dinner was beyond delicious. Waitress was excellent. Wine list and sitting is limited. Walking out my husband stated we coming back tomorrow, that's how good it was.

I went in to buy a few dozen raviolis not knowing the store and restaurant are separate. Decided to have dinner. My food was good, wine was good. NOTE: cash only. Glancing around the few tables, folks seemed to be enjoying their meals

If you like a fresh, bright sauce, this is the place. It is small place, but Prisco (the owner) has an open kitchen. You watch him prepare your dish. It is a community of patrons, many know each other, but welcome all. The waitress staff is attentive and friendly. The only downside is that it is cash only. Don't let... More

Delicious pasta and apps. We love this place. Decent portions, enough for lunch the next day and very reasonable. Remember to bring cash.

What kind of restaurant in this day and age doesn't take credit cards? At least they post it on the door, I would rather have known before I drove down there!

What a great birthday lunch. Pasta Market really knows what they're doing. Eight of us went for lunch to celebrate a family members birthday. The bruschetta and antipasto for appetizers were excellent. Tried the asparagus ravioli with garlic cream sauce special & would definitely order again. The pasta is homemade and fresh. Everyone was happy with their meals. Service was... More

We went to Pasta Market after checking on TripAdvisor. It is labeled the best restaurant in Malden. The experience started well, with clean salon, and partial view of the kitchen. The staff was attentive, and quick. The menu had the right names on it: Boscaiola, Amalfi, Pappardelle, wild mushrooms, etc. The type of things you don't see in your run... More

Everything tasted (was) homemade! The pasta was delicious and the pizza was well priced for its big size. Don't leave without trying the tiramisu! One of the best I ever had! However, the one thing that was weird was that they cleaned the tables with Windex.
