Eat, Drink and Be Murphy: The ghost of Casa de Pasta

One night, oh, maybe about 20 years ago, Patti Weaver was standing by the waitress station at Casa de Pasta.

Over by a table for two near a paneled wall, Weaver, who has worked here for 32 years, swore she saw the white outline of a little girl.

“Did I see that or not?” Weaver said. “It was really cool, but it happened so quick.”

This is the time of year for tricks and treats, pumpkins, and yes, goblins, ghouls and ghost stories. But many — not all, mind you — believe the Casa de Pasta story is the real deal.

And more than a few people say there is a ghost at the downtown Italian restaurant that sometimes appears after the fine Italian cuisine has been served up.

As the story goes, a little girl was killed out front of the Federal-style house sometime in the late 1800s, according to chef and co-owner Joe Caito.
