The setup of this restaurant is a little unusual -- you place your orders at a counter, Panera-style, and then they bring your order to the table. The menu was pretty surprising, too.

Fresh pasta, and you can buy it over the counter as well? Great! Except not so great. The pasta is very think, and I am not sure why but the texture is not so great. The sauces are nice, but I was really looking forward to the fresh pasta and was disappointed.

The best cakes - yes, I know it is a pasta place and the pasta is good too, but the cakes - chocolate mousse, ganache, chocolate cheesecake, are soooo good...as is the amazing homemade breadsticks, yum, yum!

I like the mixed seafood pasta dish and the calamari. Breadsticks are very good too. Casual restaurant.

Very good, especially for takeout. Better than a typical chain for sure.
