Experience Pasta Fresca

Pasta Fresca is a family-owned restaurant, born and raised in Forest Acres. We have been a part of the community for 15 years.  On May 15th, 2012 we moved just a few blocks down the road from our old location. Our new home is absolutely gorgeous! We have a private dining room that seats 12-16, a lovely patio, and a full bar with a tv. Oh, wanna know about the food? Well, we make our pasta and sauces from scratch each and every day. There is no place quite like Pasta Fresca. Come experience for yourself! Open daily at 4:30pm Join us on Forest Drive, across from the Dunkin Donuts and next door to Rite Aid.
