Relaxing reggae music washes over the lush potted plants and mural-decorated walls inside Rasta Pasta, mingling in midair with the scents of Italian and Caribbean cuisine. Those aromas come from the kitchen, where chefs prepare entrees such as The Natural Mystic—a medley of jerk chicken, garlic, green onion, and basil in pineapple-curry sauce over penne pasta. Also in the mix are pasta dishes laden with sautéed seafood or spicy sausage, as well as vegetarian and gluten-free entrees.
Live music and hula-hooping sessions often entertain diners indoors, and abundant sunshine brightens the sidewalk patio in warmer months. Patrons can sip freshly brewed tea, local beer, and cocktails made with Jamaican rum brought to America by long-distance surfers. That rum also goes into the Bananas Marley—a booze-laced dessert with flambéed bananas and natural vanilla ice cream.
Rasta Pasta's "One Love" philosophy ensures that the restaurant holds to admirable practices both in and out of the kitchen. Among those practices are composting, recycling, and using local ingredients sourced from responsible sellers.
The veggies were crisp, the shrimp were tender and the pasta was perfectly prepared. Prepare for some rockin' flavors and generous portionsSarah K., Yelp!, 12/6/12
