This new version of iPasta is lovely - intimate, nice upholstered bench seating, quirky table setting pieces. We both loved the caprese salad, but when it came to entrees, we had a split decision. I ordered the smoked salmon pasta and ate every bite (I...More

This is now Dolce Zola. They took over the space next to iPasta, broke through a wall, and created a much larger and more upscale space. The menu retains a few old favorites from iPasta, but is overall more ambitious and less pasta-centric. Food is...More

Your entrees will take a little bit of time, but it's completely worth it. The pasta is made fresh daily and you can certainly tell the difference. You can mix any topping and sauce with whatever type of pasta shape you'd like. Gives "playing with...More

iPasta is a very quaint eatery and space is very limited. There is only one eating area and a group of 16 would have to be broken up. With that said, due the closeness, no matter where you sat, everyone could converse... More
