Another high-quality restaurant located in a somewhat sketchy strip mall, Pasta Plus offers excellent Italian dishes beyond just noodles. Of course, the pasta entrees are the main draw, with locals recommending the tender, flavorful pumpkin ravioli. People looking for a spicy splurge should opt for the lobster fra diavolo—the combination of the tender shellfish with the hot, flavorful sauce is not to be missed. The traditional spaghetti Bolognese is a great fallback option for the less adventurous diner. If you don’t feel like a plate of pasta, the foccacia pizza is amazing—great toppings on thick, dense Italian flatbread. Some diners complain that the menu is too large and it’s impossible to decide what to order, but really that’s not such a bad thing. It can also be a bit of a wait to get a table, as Pasta Plus doesn’t take reservations.
