You might know the pasta stylings of Le Messe in Eastlake. If you don’t, it doesn’t matter. G.H. Pasta Co. is a fast-casual pasta spot from the same team, and what you can expect is a massive bowl of delicious homemade noodles with things like pesto, braised pork and root vegetables, cacio e pepe, and amatriciana sauce. It’s all excellent, won’t cost you more than $9 a plate, and pairs really well with the garlic bread topped with parmesan and chives.
