Really great pasta and friendly service. They didn’t have a menu printed as it changes daily based on the fresh ingredients they have on hand each day. Come with an open mind and adventurous palette. We got the beet pasta and uni pasta. I didn’t really know what to expect with the beet pasta but it was delicious. Subtle, and with the goat cheese it was perfect. Tons of flavor in the uni pasta as well. It was fun watching them cook as we enjoyed our wine. Be sure to call for availability before making your way over. Parking can be a bit tough near the fashion district but this place is worth it!

Memorable pasta! There were only 3 things on the menu (changes every week). All were interesting. The owner was there taking our orders. The baguette is a must if your going for the first time! Would come back again to try different pastas.

Very tasty homemade pastas. They usually have three options for you to choose from. The beet spaghetti is a regular and the other two are usually gnocchi or some other pasta with varying sauces depending on the day. The beet spaghetti is great if you like beets. I’ve also had an amazing gnocchi w/ bolognese dish a couple times. I would give the pasta 5 stars, but they lose one star because of portion size. This is not a place you want to visit if you’re hungry. It’s a child-size portion for $15. Sadly, I always leave still a little hungry. Great place to try if you aren’t that hungry and you don’t mind paying $15 for a small lunch.
