Pasta Beach

Just now open, this Newport-based Italian eatery's first Hub outpost is decked out with an enormous Italian white marble bar, dark wood tables, patio seating, and artsy imported handmade metal light fixtures, and is serving a wide range of breakfast-thru-dinner eats like fresh focaccia sammies (Prosciutto di Parma w/ arugula/tomatoes), Neopolitan-style brick-oven 'za (Salsiccia Italiana with sausage and gorgonzola), and over 20 pasta dishes like the shrimp, cherry tomato, and zucchini'd Linguine ai Gamberetti and pumpkin ravioli drizzled with butter & sage -- ironic, as cutting back on the butter's always sage advice.
