Justa Go!

Love this place! Fresh food at excellent prices. Friendly staff. Parking can be a bit challenging depending on time of day, but really worth the effort. Great wine choices too.

For as long as I can remember, my wife has loved Justa Pasta. Whenever she was working in northwest Portland, she never missed the chance to go here for lunch. However each time we went together for dinner, I couldn't quite understand her fondness for the place. Sure it was good, quite good in fact, but I just didn't feel... More

Visiting Portland we stayed at an apartment in the alphabet district, and found Justa Pasta around the corner. It provides excellent fine dining quality pasta with a casual ambiance and very reasonable prices. How smart to have 2 small eating areas--a deli style room for families and a more "dressed up" dining room for adults only. We usually try to... More

Choose your pasta type and your sauce, and anything you want with it on the basic menu, or select from the specials, I had a yummy risotto with asparagus and shrimp. What I liked ... the food. What didn't work well, not being served my beverage even after requesting it. The

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
