Pasta Ravello in Eugene, Oregon

rating star

The best part of the meal were the cheese "crackers" that were brought as a snack. They were crunchy and savory. After that, the meal was a succession of sad disappointments. The toppings for the "crostinis", tomato, eggplant, and basil, were all overpowered with raw garlic. After sending the "crostinis" back to the kitchen as "inedible", the pasta arrived. If you like slow cooked sauces don't expect to find one at Pasta Ravello. Any flavors of herbs or vegetables were lost in the sea of raw garlic. It appeared that a handful of coarsely chopped raw garlic was thrown into the sauce at the last minute. Mindful preparation of dishes and delicate balance of flavors are not strong points coming out of Ravello's kitchen. Then only strong thing coming out of there is raw garlic. After several bites of this entree I was disgusted and finished. One star shows up on this rating, it should be without any stars. What a waste of $40!
