It’s tough to find a bowl of pasta under $20 in Miami these days, and even harder to find one that doesn’t suck. But Little River’s Pastamarket is where you want to be on those nights when you need a very good bowl of reasonably priced noodles in a place with absolutely no dress code. The menu lets you make all the choices: you pick from about ten different pasta options, and then choose from an equal amount of sauces. Even though it sounds like the ordering system of a fast-casual chain restaurant, the quality is great. The fresh pasta is cooked to a lovely al dente, served in perfect portions, and the sauces are equally tasty.
If the weather allows, sit outside. The patio is a lot more charming than the small dining room, which is covered in a slightly cheesy wallpaper that really wants to convince you you’re in an alleyway somewhere in Italy. Pastamarket is a great takeout option too, and they have meal kits that’ll let you cook the pasta at home.
