    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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 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.

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

    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.

    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.
