They have something for everyone but if you do have a vegan with you their pastas are all made with egg so they are not suitable. This is so delicious and always a go to place for our family.

Nice selection here of Italian specialities. Excellent and friendly service. Many vegetarian options. So many great pasta and sauce choices. Gnocchi of the day is a real treat though next time I would Skip the bacon in the sauce, too much bacon.

We have been coming here for over a decade. The prices have changed a lot-- a lot more expensive. They do offer a kids menu but it is limited- a cheese pizza, a few pastas. Many of the pastas do not come in a smaller size (such as the carbonara). We really do like the food-- my sense of the... More

Made a pit stop here for lunch on the way home from a recent trip because my boyfriend said this pasta is the best. He was absolutely correct. Cute, TINY restaurant. Reasonably priced, I thought it was actually quite cheap for the wonderful quality of food that we received. I had linguine with tomato sauce and it was PERFECT. Just... More

We have been loyal customers at Fresh Pasta for years, ever since the day they opened, long before there was a restaurant, way back when they used to cut the pasta to order. Over recent years, we've enjoyed many, many great meals with delicious pasta, shrimp, salmon, etc. dishes accompanied by excellent French wine. Our favorite appetizer has always been... More

Don't understand how anyone can not thoroughly enjoy this place. Food was outstanding - apps, small plates and entrees. Service was top notch and wine list is very impressive. This was our second time back and will definitely be back there again!

Did not really enjoy my dinner. Pasta was stuck together, kept turning it in the sauce trying to get it un-stuck. Salad is extra. Bread is extra. Service OK. They were very busy. Very small place so need to make reservations unless after 7:15 pm.

I went back to Viva Fresh Pasta just after their "new menu" roll-out. Although the font the menu is printed in has certainly improved, the food has actually gotten worse. Once you get past the bizarre smell that plagues the downstairs dining room and focus on making an order, the confusion among the waitstaff over certain menu items was disturbing.... More

I hadn't come here in a while and decided to return for a bite of dinner. I sat outside in back and had the place to myself. I ordered the ahi tuna small plate ($14) which was actually quite huge (perhaps a 5 ounce portion). It was cooked just right, if just a little fatty. But I ate it all!... More
