PASTA E PESTO OPENS TO RAVE REVIEWS
THE LATEST ESPRESSION OF AUTHENTIC ITALIAN GOODNESS IN THE AREA
While the owners of the Lasagna House III are earnestly working hard toward their grand re-opening later this year, owners Matt Vernon and Mary Spessato have opened up a taste of the Italian Cafe with Pasta e Pesto. Pasta e Pesto is located just west of Ella on FM 1960, behind the Whataburger. Their telephone number is 281580-1430.
Pasta e Pesto offers a very quaint dine in cafe experience with all the Italian cuisine selections to satisfy the most discerning palate for authentic Italian flavors!
Offerings include AntiPasto, Salads, Panini, Spaghetti, Fettuccine, Linquine, Lasagna, Parmigiana as well as Marsala.
The Public News has been there several times since their opening back in January, including a special pre-opening invite in December. The food is beyond description when it comes to flavor and aroma. The taste is what dining Italian is all about. Even the garlic toast is worth waiting for and always ask for seconds!
The wait staff is efficient and very pleasant. The manager on duty is frequently visiting the dining area and engaging diners. There is something for everyone to enjoy at Pasta e Pesto.
You may hear comparisons to the Lasagna House III to the effect that Pasta e Pesto is a scaled down version of the parent company. In some ways it is, and in many other ways it is not. Lasagna House III was a full service, sit down restaurant with a bar and full menu. Pasta e Pesto is an Italian Cafe, set up in a style similar to Italian sidewalk cafes in Italy. The offerings may be limited compared to a full-fledged restaurant, but that is not the case with Pasta e Pesto. Their offerings are tailored to down sized crowd with prices to match.
Oh, and forget about small portions, the portions at Pasta e Pesto are generous. Folks who enjoy Italian food on the go, or on the quick would find Pasta e Pesto a perfect match to their daily pace.
Pasta e Pesto has been open since the first of the year and is already enjoying 5-star reviews on Yelp and a huge 5-star rating here in the Public News.
