"Great food and a perfect cocktail are important, but for me, visiting with a table or chatting with a regular customer is really what it's all about."   -Jeff Smith
In 1999, Jeff and Alan Smith added Hasta la Pasta Italian Grill to their restaurant family.  At that time, there was one location in Humble.  In the next few years, the brothers built a location in Katy, where Jeff lives, and one in Champions, close to Alan’s home, so that both would have delicious Italian American food close by!  In the 15 or so years since, each location has changed a bit to reflect the tastes of the neighborhood — but, like the brothers, remain devoted to quality food, character and community.
