About Us

The Pasta House has been a notable Fairhaven landmark for more than 40 years.  Mario Ribeiro and his family took over the business in 2001 and continued the tradition of being one of the best restaurants in the SouthCoast of Massachusetts.  In 2016, The Pasta House was awarded the Small business of the year by the New Bedford Chamber of Commerce.  And over the past 4 years has been awarded the best dining restaurant by South Coast Media, voted on by the people of the Southcoast.  


Our Mission at The Pasta House is to create a place where family & friends can gather for a great meal & beverage in a clean & comfortable atmosphere.  Our goal is to treat each guest like family and provide service that will want you to come back again & again! 


“It’s a great honor for our family to provide a restaurant that means so much to the Southcoast and local family traditions.  We take pride in all our work and hope to continue on for generations to come”.   Sincerely, Mario Ribeiro
