The Pasta House has been a notable Fairhaven landmark for more than thirty years. Fairhaven selectman and contractor Victor Fleurent, built a brick and wood beamed steak house on the corner of Alden Road and Bridge Street in 1968. He called it “The Paddock Pub”. The business changed hands in 1975 and operated as the “J.W. Western Steak House” for another five years.
The Raikkonen Family purchased the property in 1981, renamed the operation and converted it into a five star Italian restaurant. On August 17, 2001, The Raikkonen’s sold The Pasta House to local entrepreneur Mario Ribeiro.
The pride of The Pasta House is our unique Italian ambiance, top quality food and wine, endless variety, and impeccable service. Your Satisfaction Is Our Livelihood! Executive Chef Sydney McClymonds has chosen a vast selection of the freshest ingredients including local produce, seafood and meats, to bring you the highest quality on all of your favorite menu items.
