i-Pasta might be small, but it offers a diverse menu. You can choose from a dozen or so different sauces. Once you've selected the sauce, you can either let the kitchen pick the perfect shape pasta based on their experience, or you can select your own. The meals start with a taste of cheese and walnuts while you check out the specials on the chalk board. Because the food is cooked to order, the service is slow, not a place to bring a passel of hungry children. The portions are generous. It's a little quirky--they serve water in tiny glasses, which are almost begrudgingly refilled. They don't serve coffee, and the only desserts are frozen confections that you pretty much have to find for yourself in a freezer across from the pasta display. It's a BYOB on Gay Street, a short walk to a parking garage.
