By and large, restaurant-goers are a fickle lot. They may flock to a certain establishment one month, then turn tail when another opens the next. So it really says something when a place like The Pasta House not only survives, but thrives -- even when the national chains invade their territory. Pasta House has done a masterful job of creating new pastas while retaining the old favorites. The result? Lots of happy customers.
