Review: Pasta Beach

By JOHNETTE RODRIGUEZ  |  August 4, 2010

Most of the desserts are imported; many focus on sorbet, gelato, or ice cream. Bill's eyes widened at the description of cherry and vanilla gelato with amaretto cherries on top ($6). I'm not usually as big a cherry fan as he is, but I agreed to split this parfait, and it was great. I think the juice from the amaretto-soaked cherries was drizzled down around the gelato, and with some whipped cream on top, this dessert provoked a bit of tussle with our two spoons.

Though the busyness at Pasta Beach can create a hectic vibe, the servers remain calm and friendly. And if it's peace and quiet you're seeking, just order your items as take-out, head for your own patch of sand, and enjoy pasta on the beach.
