Pasta La Vista is an uptown urban full service restaurant featuring innovated wood-fired pizzas, creative pastas & entrees, Belgian beer, & an award winning wine list in the heart of the city.
I visited Pasta La Vista since I heard so many positive things about this restaurant. I had high expectations coming through the door but they were all dashed as soon as the server brought us our dinners. The food was subpar and not even remotely close to being authentic. Even myself is limited experience in the kitchen can tell the difference between someone who knows truly culinary artistry and someone simply following a recipe book. The service itself was average and not enough to make up for the horrid food. It is unfortunate as the surroundings are nice, the facilities are clean and the atmosphere very inviting. This is an experience I would much rather forget as this restaurant fails to impress.

Stick to the classics like Caesar salad or bruschetta to start, or be adventurous and try Asian pork gyoza or chicken spring rolls. Second options are myriad and frequently... more
