Love the concept! It's a small hole in the wall, you can watch as they hand make the pasta noodles in the back. Order the pasta of your choice, then choose a sauce. Very reasonable prices, excellent huge portion of lasagna!

A small but relaxing atmosphere. We both had vegetarian dishes. The Parapadelle with pesto and the Spinach and ricotta ravioli with browned butter with sage. Both equally everything we wanted-a satisfying and scrumptious meal! I topped it off with a Cappuccino and Panna Cotta with...More

Great pasta! I’m upset I was only able to visit here once on our trip. Not anything fancy but just good food! Also, such a plus that you get to see them make the pasta in the adjacent room!
