Dolce Zola is essentially a brand new restaurant with the same owners and great food. Sitting in the renovated facility itself is worth the trip. Beautifully done, and the owners take great pride in it's appearance and the food they present. As with any upgraded/new...More

We would like to start off by sincerely apologizing to you and your party. The unexpectedly large and positive turnout to our soft opening overwhelmed our staff. We would like to make it up to you by offering you a gift certificate of fifty dollars....More

This is one of the many local spots that we stop in for dinner. Usually we don't "plan" to go here, but we often end up here. The choices of pastas and sauces is very good and constantly good.

Don't let the horrible name deter you from this delightful BYOB. We have dined here a few occasions and have always been impressed. Pleasant and helpful wait staff can assist with the pasta/sauce pairings if you are unsure. All in all you can't go wrong...More

Choice of pasta and pasta sauce including Gluten free pasta, Rolls were warm when bought to table and served with a red pepper sauce/tomato sauce. Also, Caprese salad was HUGE; definitely order to share. I had the 6 cheese sauce and it was very good.

Serviceable pastas. Hard to compete with Teca next door for quality though. Quantity over quality is the keyword here.

iPasta is a very quaint eatery and space is very limited. There is only one eating area and a group of 16 would have to be broken up. With that said, due the closeness, no matter where you sat, everyone could converse... More
