Viva Fresh Pasta

This is another of my favorite places in Northampton... for ONE meal. Yes, you see, I would get it every time. In fact, my last month at Smith, I went there for lunch three times. Every time: sweet potato ravioli with maple-walnut sauce. Side salad with lemon gorgonzola dressing. I wonder if they remembered me that third time. It was always the same two guys. Very kind, very professional. The pasta? Very good. I recommend going for lunch because the lunch prices are insanely better than the dinner prices. The caesar salad I had there once was fine but did not even begin to compare to the pasta. Funny thing is Kady didn't really like the maple-walnut sauce because she found it too sweet. Which goes to show, it's all opinions. Reviews are a good way to start. You read them to make sure no one has experienced anything horrific, but after that, you really don't know what you're going to love or hate about the place. All I can add to this is that the side salad came with an amazing dressing (lemon gorgonzola - yes, I will now recreate this at home) which is a huge plus because side salads are never something to get this excited about. And yet, Jeeeesus... So, try it out, I recommend it. Let me know what you think!
