When Beckie took her first bite of pasta primavera, her eyes closed. She made a sound that might have been a moan. We thought something was wrong.
“I think,” she said, “This is the best pasta I’ve had in my life.”
Lest you think Beckie is easy to please when it comes to restaurants: she isn’t. Placido’s Pasta Shop is special.
Tucked into the ground floor of the Hummingbird Building, you can almost miss it, but don’t. Everything is fresh and organic, bread and pasta made on site, sauces cooked to order. We’ve tried panini, pesto pasta, and that pasta primavera. Everything consistently great.
150 Shelton-McMurphey Blvd. Eugene, OR, (458) 205-8092, Hours: 11:00 to 2:00, 5:00 to 9:00, closed Mondays.
