I try to look for new local places to eat, so while driving on SW 104th street I was keeping an eye out for something different. After seeing way too many national chain restaurants, I was about to settle on stopping at Crest to get some generic microwaveable lunch when as I pulled in I saw a sign for Victoria’s- The Pasta Shop. Well this has got to be better than that prepackaged slop from Crest, so I stopped to check it out.
Located at the end of the strip mall that runs along the north side of Crest, I was seated immediately. The menu was fairly simple, only a few appetizers and a limited number of entrée’s. I ordered stuffed mushrooms to start and they were brought out quickly. Over a dozen mushrooms caps, filled with pesto and onions, covered with cheese. They had a great flavor and I really enjoyed them. The entrée menu had the normal spaghetti, lasagna, and fettuccine but one thing was different- lasagna rolls. This is what I wanted to try- spinach, cheese, and shrimp rolled inside lasagna noodles covered with alfredo and marinara. Also brought out quickly, two big lasagna rolls garnished with a large french roll on top. This all had a good taste to it.
As I learned, there is another location in Norman near the University of Oklahoma. Hopefully they have the same great service and atmosphere. I give it five strips of bacon.
