When visiting Branson, MO this past fall, there were quite a few places that left mark on my travel experience. Looking back, one of my favorite eats was found in the charming place known as Pasghetti's. Being Italian, I simply cannot turn down a good Italian restaurant, especially when there is one with such a raving reputation. When visiting Branson, MO, Pasghetti's Italian Restaurant is a must stop for lunch or dinner. You can't miss this place when driving down the popular strip because, hello, look at that meatball! Who can pass up an opportunity to stand in the largest fork and meatball? Not me!
Since they are known for their famous meatballs, I clearly knew what I was going to eat when ordering. I chose alfredo pasta with a side meatball because you can't visit a restaurant that offers something they are famous for and not try it. Y'all, my meal did not disappoint. It was full of flavor and left me completely full. I could definitely tell that the meatball was homemade and if I didn't have somewhere to be after leaving, I would have taking one to go.
Pasghetti's is not just know for their meatballs. Every meal on the menu and every part of the restaurant ambiance and decor is thoroughly thought out and overseen by the owners, a local family. I love a good family-owned business! Family-owned often leads to family friendly, which Pasghetti's totally is. It's the perfect place for a date night or family meal. Each visit can be a different experience with the many themed dining rooms and during the holidays, the definitely deck the halls with beautiful decorations!
Bringing the kids or channeling your inner kid? Make sure you check out their game room and indoor Ferris wheel (How cool is that?!). They are also set up to host large groups because they certainly have the space. We had a group of about 30 and our service was impeccable. Dining with friends or alone, they've got you covered!
If you are looking for some good ole' Italian cooking smothered in yummy sauce with a side of amazing customer service and an atmosphere that should please just about anyone, the Pasghetti's should be on your list of places to visit in Branson. You are also supporting the local economy when you support local businesses. If you are like me (a picky Italian who refuses a chain restaurant), come with your yoga pants on and leave full and happy. I mean, if you gotta eat, you might as well make it a place you want to return to. And trust me, once you eat at Pasghetti's, you will return. I know I will any time I am in Branson. Hello, meatball! Ha!
