If you’ve ever been to Pasta Beach in Newport, you know it’s worth the drive. The pizza is wood-fired, the pasta is always al dente and the decor is perfectly inviting. Lucky for us, Pasta Beach recently opened a location in Wayland Square, which is great for those unable – or unwilling – to drive more than 20 minutes for a darn good meal. With a heavy nod to a more traditional Italian menu as opposed to Italian-American fare (that means no spaghetti and meatballs), the food is lighter, healthier and just plain delicious.
