Restaurant dishes fresh flavors, food
Pasta Fresca offers customers Italian meals with home-cooked sauces, cozy ambiencePasta Fresca – 5 out of 5 stars
Ever heard the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover?” The same goes for Pasta Fresca – don’t judge this quaint Italian restaurant by its simple brick building. Located on Forest Drive across from Richland Mall, this restaurant is more than it appears to be.
With the home-cooked aroma, neuvo-European decor and extensive menu, Pasta Fresca has something for anyone for any occasion. They offer everything from salads and antipastos to seafood, vegetarian and Italian classics. All dishes are prepared out in the open, freshly, in-house.
As for the food, Pasta Fresca has some of the best, most original dishes in town. They offer a wide variety of sauces and make the “usual” sauces taste even better.
If spicy is what you crave, try something with Pasta Fresca’s original cayenne cream sauce, such as the newly added favorite Southwestern ravioli. It has just the right amount of kick in a pasta dish.
Of course they still have the same classics such as lasagna and spaghetti, but Pasta Fresca is known for its originals. All pastas and sauces are cooked fresh daily.
