Went recently with friends on a Saturday night - ambience was cozy and inviting. Small restaurant but servers make it work and were so pleasant and accommodating. Had the lentil soup for a starter and while ok, could have had more lentils and more flavor. Entree was the tonnarello with amatriciana sauce. Pasta was cooked perfectly (homemade!!) and sauce was...

Don't let the horrible name deter you from this delightful BYOB. We have dined here a few occasions and have always been impressed. Pleasant and helpful wait staff can assist with the pasta/sauce pairings if you are unsure. All in all you can't go wrong here.

Very intimate setting, personal service and great food. West Chester is a great walking community and this is a hidden gem.

Choice of pasta and pasta sauce including Gluten free pasta, Rolls were warm when bought to table and served with a red pepper sauce/tomato sauce. Also, Caprese salad was HUGE; definitely order to share. I had the 6 cheese sauce and it was very good.

Serviceable pastas. Hard to compete with Teca next door for quality though. Quantity over quality is the keyword here.

I love the "dragon tail" pasta. The sauce was awesome. The atmosphere is cool as well. My upper teen sons both enjoyed the food and atmosphere too.

Don't be put off by the restaurant name (we almost were). This is an unassuming BYOB which offers any pasta dish you could possibly want. It is small so make reservations. They offer very tasty dishes. I had the spinach raviolis with blush sauce. Excellent. We also shared the caprese which had wonderful balsamic dressing and very fresh mozzarella and... More

Ok, well.... my mom and I decided to drive to West Chester for dinner on our recent trip to Kennett Square. We were a little put off by the location-- it had a college town type feel but seemed a little sketchy/unsafe in some sections of the main street. The restaurant was difficult to find- very small sign and narrow... More

But really. The quality of the food is absolutely incredible. It might take a little longer to get a plate of pasta here but it's absolutely worth the wait. It's fresh and ready made to order so you know the quality is on point. I would not recommend for parties more then eight because the space is limited but is... More
