Restaurant Review: Pasta Beach

Pasta Beach Restaurant

Restaurant reviews aren’t what we typically do here.  Usually I jabber on about some memory or another, throw a few pictures of food your way, follow up with a recipe, and then you leave nice comments along the lines of “Yum!”  But today I decided to shake things up.

Italian Pizza

I have been writing restaurant reviews for Scene Magazine in Boston for about a year, and this latest one is my favorite.  Maybe it’s because I was reading Ruth Reichl at the time, or maybe it was because I knew I was leaving Boston and nostalgia was creeping in, but each and every one of my visits to Pasta Beach was magical. It has been a few months since we left Boston and I have been craving Pasta Beach’s simple straightforward pasta and perfect, crisp, chewy pizza. Thankfully, they have an outpost in Newport, RI too (actually, Newport is the original location) and there is no doubt I’ll make it up to Newport this summer.

In the meantime, take a look at the review here and drool over Jazz Martin’s photos that I’ve posted and those on his site as well.  Thanks Jazz!
