As I wound my way through the picturesque streets of Mystic, CT, today’s business meetings fading into the rearview, the charm of this coastal town I once called home beckoned me to explore a little more. On my journey back to Westerly, a spontaneous decision to seek out a late lunch turned into an unforgettable dining experience at Pasta Fresca & Piadina. They are always a hit, and of course, today wasnt any different.

Nestled in the heart of Mystic, Pasta Fresca & Piadina is a local gem, famed for its generously stuffed grinders and sandwiches, alongside heartwarming, homemade soups that feel like a hug in a bowl. The eatery’s charm lies not just in its deli style atmosphere with a cozy ambiance, but also in the daily specials that promise something new with each visit. Today’s board boasted tempting offerings like the Sausage & Pepper Grinder, Italian Sloppy Joe Grinder, and the Mystic Muffuletta, alongside sumptuous dinners ready to take home – think Eggplant Parmesan with a side salad or Sausage & Spinach Lasagna.

However, it was the Chicken Salad Sandwich that caught my eye and soon, my taste buds. Served with American cheese, crisp lettuce, and ripe tomato, it was a masterpiece of flavors, each bite more satisfying than the last. Let’s not even mention the size of this thing! Skyscrapers have been known to become envious! The side of creamy, herbaceous macaroni salad was the perfect complement, adding a refreshing note to the hearty sandwich.
