Justa Pasta Review

Restaurant: Justa Pasta

Type of Food: Italian

Date: 9/2/2011

In 6 words or fewer: Relax and mangia.
Justa Pasta on Urbanspoon
Review: Justa Pasta is a great little place to relax with a glass of wine and some fresh pasta.

The format is very casual. Get in line at the cash register, review the regular printed menu and the chalkboard daily specials for food and wine. If you want water, get it yourself on the way to your table. Once seated, you are treated as you would be in a regular restaurant.

The place has two cozy rooms indoors and tables outdoors on summer nights.

We went there because we wanted tasty comfort food without any scene. It had been a long week, and I just wanted to eat and relax with my wife.

On this night, the chalkboard menu offered wild king salmon and chicken parmesan, among other things. I took the chicken parmesan, and it hit the spot. The sauce had a little kick to it, but there was nothing extraordinary about the food.
