Ultra casual and limited selection of 3 pastas and a salad. All top notch. You need to factor in standing in line for 15-20 minutes. If you want a low carbs diet break you want to have it here.

This gem is only open for lunch M-F so plan accordingly. You have to get your own place setting and buss your own table but the pasta is well worth it. All of their pastas are made in house. Their Pappardelle Bolognese is a staple...More

Open only for lunch you wait in line to order and then take your table. The line moves quickly so don't be afraid to join the line. Very reasonable pricing for fresh homemade pastas with seasonal ingredients. We started with the fresh kale salad with...More

The food is in general well prepared and served all the times i have visited this place. I do like their pasta dishes. Nothing special but well executed. Setup and service is a bit weird. If you don't mind this or you can be early...More
