Basta Pasta is simply the best Japanese inspired Italian Pasta you can find in the tri-state area. This place is always packed, so do remember to make reservations in advance. Their decor is spectacular, they sport a open kitchen with a bar for socializing and a dinning room that is both warm and cozy. Their waiting staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and willing and able to recommend dishes based on your preference.

Five dish that you should try (at least once):

  • Seared Scallops
  • Mushroom Risotto
  • Farfalle con Salmone e Crema (bow-tie pasta with salmon)
  • Linguine al Ricci di Mare (linguine with fresh sea urchin)
  • Spaghetti con Prosciutto e Parmigiano (Spaghetti with Parmigiano Reggiano and Parma prosciutto, served in half a wheel of Parmesan cheese at table)

Italian Tomato is a Japanese Italian restaurant and bakery chain. You wont find many of them in the States, but if you happen to come across one you’re in for a treat. They serve Japanese influenced Italian pasta, and gourmet Japanese buns and pastries.

You can find a Italian Tomato in the food court section of the Mitsuwa Marketplace, which is located in Edgewater, NJ. There are Shuttle Bus Available from New York City. Italian Tomato have daily specials that include a pasta, small salad, a bun, and a drink for only $6.25. I highly recommend their clam pasta, fruit tart and green tea cake.
