Pasta Espresso is nothing fancy, but they do a great job making delicious and filling food and you cant beat the price! My favorite combination is red bell pepper and spinach fettuccine with whatever the white sauce is mixed with the meat sauce of the day.

Have you ever had one of those magical meals? You know...5-star service, a spectacularly elegant dining room, and fare that dazzles the tongue with a perfect convergence of flavors? Well, you probably weren't at Pasta Espresso, but what this place lacks in traditional restaurant execution, it more than makes up for in charm, value, and great comfort food.

Their selection is limited, but they make their pastas and sauces fresh daily onsite. Last night, they had about 5 pastas and 4 sauces available, and I was encouraged to mix and match. For pasta, I went with a mix of spinach fettuccine, and fire spirals (not as hot as advertised), which came smothered with a duet of Alfredo sauce and a sausage marinara. The end result was a fresh plate of comfort food that went down well. They also throw in a side of salad and huge slab of garlic bread to round out the meal.

Within 10 minutes my plate was clean...to be honest, despite the generous portion size, I could have done another one. All that for the low price of $7.50. Tough to beat.
