I love the freedom you’re given with the different types of ravioli, short, and long pastas with an endless list of sauces.
The pasta’s always cooked to perfection, and the sauces are heavy with flavor. You can tell the freshness of the food by the satisfying fullness you get without the icky feeling after your meal.
I love coming here for lunch for their special combos of panini and soup/salad or short pasta and soup/salad for under $7! Can’t beat it. Good portion, too!
I was obsessed with the arrabbiata and pollo sauces for a while, but recently tried their funghi and salmon sauces… Now I’ll be torn every time I visit. I’m a huge fan of their arugula salad (the vinaigrette is my favorite hands down), calamari (they fry it with lemon and jalapeño slices), and their coconut carrot with ginger soup (light but filling).
The calamari is always crunchy. It’s fried with jalapeño and lemon slices, which I’ve never had before. The fried jalapeños has a slight kick. I wouldn’t mind having it as a separate appetizer item (hint! hint!). I don’t care much for the fried lemon as they can be bitter at times, but sometimes you get lucky and get a sweet tangy one. I dip them in the creamy sauce and then into the marinara sauce for a heavenly combination of flavor! I’m guilty of mixing foods that may not always go together, but that’s the only way to find out if things work together or not! I don’t regret trying it with these two sauces at all.
