Established in 1993, Lotsa Pasta opened its doors on Hartz Avenue in downtown Danville. Designed as a Mom and Pop restaurant, you rarely step into this cozy Italian eatery without seeing owners Diane and Tom Lembo standing behind the counter. Both Bay Area natives, Diane and Tom have 40 years of restaurant experience behind them. Tom
Last year we catered with Lotsa Pasta, and it was great; this year wasn't all that great. The pasta was really bland, no salt, the pesto had no taste, and I felt that it lacked something. The bread was too hard, but the salad was great. Maybe we didn't get lucky with the chef, but hopefully next year we'll have better luck.
fastest pasta place around. and its soo good. the garlic bread is amazing. order a rootbeer and it comes in a frosty mug! and they have the bessst mints ever...make sure to grab a few on your way out. or your way in. or during your meal. hahaha. love them. anyways the alfredo is a littttle too watery for a good fettucine alfredo but its delicious on tortellini. mmm. you order at the front, and dont attempt to sit down if theres a line because the people who are waiting in line before you get the table before you. other than that...its an amazing little hole in the wall that everyone should experience...just not all at once. =] because otherwise it will be too crowded! =] haha
Just visited this place for the 5th time. The pasta was just so so and my wifes dish was just thrown together. Pasta used to be made like it was loved. What happened?!! Won't be checking it out for awhile.
Everything I have ever tried is excellent -- and the cozy venue reminds me of eating in my italian grandfather's kitchen as a kid.
My only word of caution is that the garlic bread, italian soup and meatballs are highly addictive!
Love the food (especially the chicken parm). The wait is never that long and the restaurant has a strong neighborhood appeal to it. It's the kind of place that can turn you into a regular if you're not careful. highly recommended.
