mamma mia, that’s a lot of pasta!

a couple of weeks ago we tried out pasta mia in adams morgan with friends.
we found the almost 2 hour wait for a table very worth it.
excellent pasta.
HUGE portions (lunch leftovers for days!)
and wonderful company (we’re really liking the people here in DC).
and i always love an opportunity to see my husband
whip out his italian to chat with the staff! so sexy.

and see the man waiving in the back of this photo? amazing.
  1. mmmhhmmmmm pasta!
    i guess thats what i will do tonite.
    meet with friends at an italian restaurant.
    yum

    Yum! That all looks so good. I could eat Italian everyday.
    And that the last photo is so funny because that guy in the background is waving at the camera and I'm guessing that you don't know him. HaHa. People are funny.

    You really cannot beat a big bowl of pasta can you – we always find it is truly the best food to share a jolly good evening with friends.
