I have only been here once (this afternoon), but I completely fell in love with my bowl of pasta. For $15, I had the tagliatelle with scallions, roasted garlic, julienne of vegetables and kalamata olives, done in a sun-dried tomato pesto. The julienne of vegetables included perfectly done asparagus with just the right amount of crispiness. There wasn't any sauce but everything was evenly coated and so delicious. I had mine topped with fresh cracked pepper and Parmesan cheese.
I recommend swapping the tagliatelle for penne if you prefer not to have pasta slapping at your chin on the way into your mouth.
The ambiance was quite nice as well. They were playing Frank Sinatra when I came in and the tables are cozy. I'd definitely go back here.
