I went for the first time yesterday for my dads birthday ( on a Sunday) .....and it was not at all crowded and the food was tasty. The bread is delictable.....For appetizers we had the bruchetta, which was very good and the sauteed mushroom, which i didnt really like. I ordered the fusilli ai scampini for dinner, it has a pesto sauce with shrimp, pine nuts, and peppes, it was verry mellow and not too rich. And they serve HUGE portions, so try not to fill up on the bread. The service was really good and the dessert selection is ample. Overall a great place to spend time with friends and family.
Pasta al dente is a truly good Italian Restaurant. The menu is authentic and huse. The service is friendly and casual. And the food is outstanding. My wife and I have frequented this restaurant several times since I moved to Long Beach. Parking is simple and we have never had an off day. Recommended with enthusiasm.
