$10 for $20 Worth of Italian Dinner Cuisine
The menu includes traditional and innovative Italian dishes such as bouillabaisse ($17.95), tortellini alfredo ($11.95), veal marsala ($17.95), and housemade lasagna ($12.95).
With its whitewashed brick façade, french windows, and curlicues of wrought iron encircling the entryway, Cafe Pasta looks as if it's been plucked straight from a cobblestoned European street. A striped awning shades the easel resting outside the front door, which announces menu highlights and other news printed in Cubist script. Inside, chefs re-create traditional Italian dishes, such as lasagna and risotto, as well as contemporary recipes crafted from spicy veal sausage or almond-crusted fish. Live music entertains diners two nights per week, as do special events such as mixology tastings and holiday parties. Cafe Pasta also caters meals throughout the area and hosts celebrations in a pair of private banquet rooms.
