“Quick, casual, fun and tasty ...”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Nicely prepared dishes, pleasant staff, and tasteful decor. Wish there was an overall rating between average and very good as this is leans towards the lower end of the latter as you have to order at the cash register, pay for the meal, seat yourself and wait for food. A bit odd, given the prices. Nary the rose without the thorn.

Still, I would go back, as few other places seem to know how to cook pasta.

“Justa Yummy”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

A friend recommended Justa Pasta, so I went with four friends. EVERYONE LOVED their meal. There are many choices of dishes...as well as size of portion. We all got "small" which was more than adequate. The pasta was home made and the sauces were delicious. Being able to add your choice of protein to a pasta dish is a bonus. There are also many daily specials...and an excellent choice of wine. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. I'll be going back SOON!

“Great homemade pasta and friendly staff”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Justa Pasta is a wonderful find in the Alphabet District. The fresh pasta and sauces are delicious. You feel at home here. It is a casual, comfortable restaurant where you order at the counter and have your food delivered to your table. There is an fine selection of wine. The specials are to die for! The staff is very friendly and helpful.

“Casual, delicious Italian food with great staff”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

We really liked this place, recommended in the Rough Guide to Oregon and Washington and near a streetcar stop (maybe 3 blocks?) in northwest Portland. The food was good and the staff was genuinely friendly. As Don G and others have mentioned, you order at the counter and then your food is brought to your table.
