Disappointing meal at Pava, Newton

rachmel | Aug 31, 2007 05:32 PM

Went to Pava for dinner tonight and was very disappointed. I had wanted to try it for quite some time, especially given the largely positive reviews on this board. Tuna appetizer was miniscule and way overpriced given it wasn't even that tasty. Tried both the pizza bianco and the papardelle with beef short ribs. The pizza was very greasy and quite bland. The pasta was okay, though nothing special. It had very little actual meat in it, and all of the flavors were overpowered by the omnipresent asparagus. Overall, the meal did not live up to expectations, and I would not return. What have other people's experiences been recently?
