    Soups, sandwiches & pastas at amazing prices. They have a restaurant but the express shop is quick. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff is so nice! It'll have you coming back for more! —Kristen L.

    I believe they changed to take cards but you can only tip in cash, which is weird. Love the manicotti. Pasta comes w/ salad & bread. Pretty sure the lunch deal is the exact same as dinner but cheaper.

    The pesto sauce is really good. If getting gnocchi make sure they don't put it in the hot water for too long bc it's already cooked. Can be borderline mushy and not al dente, how it should be.

    Joseph Lamarca’s cheese shop houses everything from Vermont cheddar to semi-soft Morbier. Cheeses are aged in-house, and customers can dine on fresh sandwiches and pastas for lunch.

    The lunch special was amazing. For $12 I had a homemade roll, a (delicious) salad, and a big bowl of spaghetti carbonara. Also tried the bolognese lasagna and it was awesome!

    It might be the best pasta in the neighborhood. We’re partial to the Carbonara and the Paglia E Feino con Proscuitto. Check out their store to DIY.

    the food is so good here! I'd recommend sitting in the cafe and ordering the pumpkin soup - they make it with lots of cream and maple syrup. now that's some serious soup! aye yo!!

    The soup here is incredible. The pumpkin and tomato soups are really thick and creamy. The split pea is like porridge. There are heaping amounts of vegetables in every spoonful! So good!

    The starter salad was fresh & full of flavor. I had the gnocchi which was great but wasn't impressed with tasting the eggplant rollatini. It's a bit overpriced for the lack of atmosphere.

    I come here about once a week. Aurora sauce is the best! Get the side BBQ chicken warmed up for you. Cut it up, add it to the penne aurora- Bon appetite!

    This picture doesn't it do it justice. I got the cheese ravioli with the Aurora sauce. Delicious definitely will go there again!

    Gnocchi with Pesto. The Chitarrucci pasta are also really good: try them with a bolognese or arrabbiata sauce.

    Cafe & Restaurant closed on weekends. Stock up on cheese Friday night. Aged Cheddar is a great snack. Tomato soup is a perfect choice as well.

    Great food, and great service! You get bread and salad with every pasta. It's pasta on pasta, and that's what makes it perfect!

    The bolognese sauce here is a favorite. And I always have a side of cheese. Today was asiago. Outrageous. Perfect for a gloomy day.

    Easily the best kept secret for lunch in the hood. Tremendous Pastas and soups. Grab a seat in the cafe if there's room.

    Had the gnocchi w/ pesto cream sauce. Not the best choice for mid-day lunch, unless you like falling asleep at you desk.

    Honestly, just don't. Dunno how this place has managed to maintain a 4 star yelp review, but it's golden years are definitely over.

    gemelli alla tuscana is amazing, but don't ignore the capellini with meatballs. As close to moms as I've had.

    Awesome pasta; fun bonus, you get not one, but two loaf sized pieces of bread with your meal.

    Unpretentious, well-priced, and deeeelish. Try the pasta with the spinach cream sauce! So full!

    Don't stray from the gnocchi with creamy pesto, mostly everything else is on the bland side. Cash only!

    I wasn't that impressed with their food, the service was poor, and they're not open on weekends. Go to La Follia down the street instead.
