PASTA has no notable interior decorations that would distract one from the food, save for the fireplace, Sofie Lorent portrait on the wall, and plasma screen TV on the wall. The menu is traditionally Mediterranean: focaccia with mozzarella and pesto, shrimp salad with grapefruit, baked chicken breast, risotto frutti del mare and assorted pizzas.

The wine list is rather modest, with few Italian wines. You get complimentary pesto multigrain bread. Your server will vehemently recommend herbal house tea. PASTA is a quiet place, which makes it ideal for a late breakfast on a weekend, a family dinner, or a business meeting. Parties are frequent here and family occasions are celebrated quite often. If you have far to travel to visit the café, it is advisable that you call first and ask if the place is available for walk-ins tonight.
