What a super little restaurant, with super-helpful staff! The concept: create your own dish by selecting your pasta, meat, fish, vegetables, sauces, garnishes, and herbs. The staff whip up the finished creation. It's inexpensive, and central to the Davie/Granville area. In business since 1999, so you know it's popular. Stop on in!

They have a bunch of "house specialty" pastas or you can choose your own combo of pasta, meats, veggies, sauces, herbs and cheeses. No matter how much you add the price stays at $7.95 (excluding a few types of pasta which add 99 cents), which is a great price for the portions you get. The service was quick and the staff was friendly. The place is a bit small but you can order for take-out if it's full.

Overall highly recommended if you want a quick tasty meal, especially if you're on a budget :)

This place isn't fancy, but it puts together a pretty high class bowl of pasta and an excellent salad. And it does it with a small staff that manages enthusiasm and welcoming smiles. The house salad features a variety of completely fresh greens and vegetables topped with a good goat cheese. Custom pasta orders featuring shrimp, BC smoked salmon were both excellent and topped with a generous helping of lightly melted parmesan cheese shavings. The atmosphere is urban cozy. So, if you find yourself in downtown Vancouver and want an inexpensive meal, you probably won't do much better.
