Ok - so we were lazy tonite and stopped there to pick up something to eat -
Honestly - I don't know what the big deal is..... the people (primarily women) were like red army ants in there....

I have not been back there in several years ... and now I remember why.

Expensive takeout, mediocre cuisine quality...
Now, I am not saying it is inedible - but at those prices sub par - to wit:

I was dying for a well made Eggplant Parm - what I got was thinly sliced, soggy (over) breaded cutlets in a pretty decent tomato sauce and mozzerella topping - any cheese filling was minimal. Now, since it is called "EGGPLANT" - one would expect the EGGPLANT to be the star - alas, not the case.

The Chicken Francese was at about the same level - fair to mediocre - underseasoned on the "francese" and the chicken cutlet being cooked to the edge of chewy

So, now I am probably an above average home cook , so I can be critical of meals outside

- however, back to my point - WHATS THE BIG DEAL with Pasta Vita?

IMHO - NOT WORTH THE MONEY

should have gone back to the new sandwich and soup shop in OS for takeout...
just saying
