Enjoying Summer in the Garden at Orto Artisan Pasta

One of the most beautiful places to dine in the city on the summer is the garden at Orto Artisan Pasta; here guests are seated amidst the various fruits and vegetable plants where they can enjoy fresh air along with delicious Italian fare. I visited a couple times over the summer enjoying these dishes.
