I've had two good meals here in the past, but was so disappointed this time. All 4 past dishes we had were just okay. My dish had great ingredients, but the sauce was lacking flavor and the pasta was even a little overcooked. It seemed like the B team was cooking. There are many other great pasta options, but I...

Justa Pasta doesn't have a great location... in fact I'd never heard of this place before I started working nearby. It is a hidden jewel. I've eaten here maybe 5-6 times now and I've always had a great meal. Their pastas, salads, soups and breads are amazing. Today I had the butternut squash soup. Heaven. Their mushroom and spinach alfredo... More

Went there with a friend. I ordered meatball with linguini, and tomato soup and they felt home-made and fresh. Would go back again during our stay in Portland.

While visiting friends in Portland, we enjoyed dinner here. We had been a couple of years ago and jumped at the chance to return. The interior is spartan but the food and service is great. We each picked something different off the menu or chalkboard specials. Everything was delightful. Excellent wine selection. The bottles are on a shelf next to... More

A restaurant with an industrial feel but delightful. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the recommendation that I got was to go with the specials menu on the blackboard. This was good advice. I had a green salad to start with a delicious dressing followed by their special chicken lasagna - simple, wholesome and very tasty. The wine list... More

I loves this place because it was original and different. Menu is on a blackboard inside. You order at the deli and then it is delivered to the table. What I did not like was you pay upfront and they want you to tip upfront too. So you are expected to tip prior to the service. Frankly, the waiter never... More

First things first: Do not try to go on a Friday or Saturday night, you will not find a place to park or sit. I love the pasta here, but even more so, I like the way they do things. You walk in and order at the counter, pay, then find a place to sit and they bring it out... More

The set up here is a little different. There is seating outside, in front of the counter where you order and behind the counter. We ordered and then found a table in the back. I'm not sure what happens if you order and then cannot find a place to sit because it's not a takeout restaurant. We were served our... More

A very pleasant, friendly place with excellent, well-priced food. You can mix and match pastas and sauces; choose the amount that you want, order specials and appetizers, and get beer, wine, and good espresso. It's low-key, family-friendly, but welcoming to adults too. Highly recommended.
