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.

This is definitely a casual lunch spot. You order at the counter and they bring your food to your table. The checkered tablecloths add to the atmosphere. The food is nothing special but definitely a nice option for lunch. Would recommend as a quick lunch option.

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.

My fav items are their calamari and breadsticks. The spicy cheese spread is awesome.

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