It’s the subtle part of the dish that makes the difference. These guys have a wonderful product and they are very easy to work with.
It is important to me to provide my customers with a great fresh, local product and a true taste of how Italians eat pasta dishes, Lexington Pasta’s product is by far the best fresh pasta to buy in our area.
Growing up in an Italian family I know the fresh pasta. That’s why it is a pleasure to use Lexington Pasta. Their products are exceptional, they even bring back memories.
"I have been buying from Lexington Pasta for almost three years, and I love doing business with Lesme and Reinaldo. They have brought such an amazing product to the Lexington market."
I have sample their products and can attest to their great taste and quality. I am a pasta lover and eating their product was taking the experience to a whole new level.
"The owner Lesme and staff are so friendly and accommodating. Food is terrific, and well priced for fast casual Italian. Highly recommend their fresh pastas and Italian dishes. Thanks for being so awesome Lesme."
"The Pasta Garage is a casual restaurant worth going out of your way to find. Homemade fresh pasta and sauces, very affordable and delicious! Gluten free pasta too!"
"The quality of the food, which is fantastically flavorful and prepared to perfection, is in a class by itself, far surpassing what you would expect of a "fast/casual" restaurant. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. Great food, great prices, great staff! I can't wait to go back!"
I would definitely recommend Pasta Garage. The staff were friendly and helpful. The owner even took time out to greet me. Food was delicious. I had the fettuccini carbonara with duck egg. The price was very reasonable. I had a carry out order and, still, the presentation made it all the more enjoyable.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful birthday dinner! I've been wanting to try this place for a long time and it most definitely did not disappoint! Thank you for going above and beyond and being wonderful!
Had lunch here today and it was delicious! Thank you so, so much! I grew up in a small town in PA with a strong Italian presence and I miss homemade local Italian food. So glad to finally have a place in Lexington to get the same!
The absolute best lasagna I have ever had. Just the smell when you walk in was delicious enough, will definitely return and bring everyone I know with me.
Went for the first time yesterday- the food was absolutely fantastic. I don't think you'll find fresher Italian food in the state. I love the fact that their bowls are made of bamboo too. My husband and I will definitely be coming back often!
Quite literally some of THE best food I've ever had. Thrilled to see these wonderful small business owners making their mark on Lexington, and making us more delicious!
Their vodka sauce is divine. God must have commissioned it himself and the angels sang over its creation. This place is wonderful and I will definitely return!
A Little About Us
Welcome to the Pasta Garage! The Pasta Garage "Italian Café" is designed to provide on-the-go people with fast, casual dining, without sacrificing quality.
The Pasta Garage was created by college friends Lesme Romero and Reinaldo Gonzalez to combine their shared love of Italian street food and the freshest of ingredients.
Stop by with a friend, choose your meal, and then watch our chefs make it for you on the spot from our open kitchen. All of our ingredients are carefully sourced, but we are especially proud of our fresh pasta, made in-house by Lexington Pasta.

Reinaldo was working for a European food manufacturing company near Lexington and to align himself better with his job, he had become a Chef at Sullivan University. Lesme acquired an MBA and moved to Tampa, climbing the corporate ladder in the financial world. Although they lived in different cities, Reinaldo and Lesme always remained best friends. They would always get together for Thanksgiving, Keeneland, Derby, & summer vacations. They frequented restaurants in Lexington and Tampa alike, but at the end of the day, nothing compared to the evenings making dinner at home, cooking fresh pasta and enjoying food and life like their elders had taught them. Ten years later, while Lesme was visiting Reinaldo in Lexington, they both agreed that corporate America was not what they had imagined years ago in Cleveland, Ohio. The following morning, Reinaldo took Lesme to Lexington’s Farmers to show him one of his favorite parts of Lexington. While walking around Cheapside Park with all that fresh produce around, they decided to have fresh pasta for dinner, play with the fresh Kentucky produce, and discover some flavors they never had in Little Italy.
As always, they had a blast making the pasta and after dinner, while still at the table, Lesme said, “This tastes so good and it is so much fun. I wish I could make a living doing this.” Reinaldo said in a half way serious tone, “We probably could. With my background in food manufacturing and culinary arts and your background in business, sales, and marketing, we can probably hit it out of the park.” Reinaldo’s wife Heather said “I think you guys are onto something and you could call it Lexington Pasta.” Lexington Pasta was born that night. Lesme went back to Tampa, but just long enough to arrange his move to Lexington. Since the summer of 2009, Reinaldo and Lesme have been making fresh pasta to satisfy the need of a town that had nothing like it before. Stop by and see our products in the stores, or meet us personally at the farmers market. There is nothing we like more than bringing Lexington Fresh food. Fresh, from our kitchen to yours.
