I love Rex's Pasta. The hot pasta burns so good and it's balanced out with roasted garlic. But their star dish is the homemade gnocchi. It's tender and fluffy, it pairs wonderfully with their homemade sauces.

We should have paid more attention to the "hot" pasta title. We all ordered hot pasta and it was too hot. This is a truly family restaurant. They have a good children's menu and they are very understanding and gracious with families. I would return...but...More

We went to Rex’s Pasta for an early Mother’s Day Dinner the Thursday prior to Mother’s Day. We made reservations 48 hours prior to our visit. Our table was ready for us upon arrival, and we were waited on promptly. Having never been there before,...More

How Rex's isn't ranked #1 in Cortland is beyond me. By far the most consistent food in town. Always great food, great service, and great prices. No matter what you are in the mood for, Rex's will not disappoint.
