Had lunch today at Justa Pasta. My second visit to this place. I liked my meal today even more than the first. Had a small Caesar salad which was excellent. Just the right size, no heavy dressing-like substance, and serious garlic presence. Loved it. For an entrée I had the chicken parmesan — served over bucatini tossed with a spicy, “garlicky” tomato sauce. It was a good sized portion and very delicious and hearty.
The place is somewhat unique in that you walk up and order you food at a counter, then sit and they bring it to you. So now real waitperson. You’d think that set-up in most places would mean food that is less than top-rate, but in the case of Justa Pasta, that just aint so.
For great food in a fun and slightly funky combination of eclectic chic meets casual, I highly recommend.
