Hidden Gem In The Back Of A Liquor Store

This is truly a great little find. The chef makes each amazing dish one at a time, and it is worth the wait. Just pick your pasta, pick your sauce, pick your add ons and make sure and order the garlic bread - its loaded with big hunks of garlic and smothered in melted butter. Grab a bottle of... read more

I really don't know how the food is. They say that they are open for lunch at 4pm they were not open. Came back the next night and they weren't open and were told to look for the owner in the parking lot.

We had Chicken Alfredo pasta and Pena pasta with meat sauce and cannoli's catered for my sons rehearsal dinner. Also a garlic bread that everyone loved. It was the best pasta ever. We had so much extra we eat it for days after. I would definitely use them again if ever in South Lake Tahoe. Renee Nowak

Italian food take out doesn't get better than this. On weekends they can get very busy, but it's with it. Try this, place your order, get a bottle of wine take your food home and relax.

Its a fresh pasta kitchen in a liquor store??? what the what!?! But its crazy fresh, hand-made to order, always delicious, dirt cheap. Value here is through the roof... if you can catch them when they are open, which is kind of erratic. The garlic bread is out of control good. You will not regret a stop by this take-out... More

Truly a hole in the wall restaurant sharing a location with a liquor store. Literally there is a liquor store with a hidden Italian restaurant inside. But don't let that fool you. The food is amazing and is a steal for such a great price. You receive large portions enough to split between two people if you aren't terribly hungry.... More

It is a take out(to go) restaurant. But the pasta here is really good with a value price and reasonable portion. The chief is a real Italian. Though the food has changed the flavor a little bit from the authentic Italian style but still taste great and yummy. Not really delicate but beyond average and cheap. It is worth a... More

This is a great spot to get food to go, little to no seating. We pre ordered 4 pasta dinners, garlic bread, pizza and had a 20 minute drive to pick up. Pasta wasnt ready when we got there, (Ivan-owner-cook) said it would just be a few minutes. Just a little longer than a few minutes and we were on... More

Bit surprised to found it in liquor store as we were looking all around but eventually the scent of great food good our attention and our rumbling stomach found it's way to great hearty and simple Italian food.
