Pasta choices on the upper east side/midtown east side

Hi everyone, just started working on lex and 59th and wanted to know a good pasta location. Now I am not looking for a restaurant but more of a cafe type place with a pasta station where you can pick out what you want. I used to work on the 52nd and 6th and was lucky enough to have a cafe dukes a block from me where they have the best pasta with a "pick anything you want" attitude, especially since it was pay per pound. Unfortunately I don't have a cafe dukes around me and the closest one is the one I did go to which is a 20min walk which would kill my lunch hour since it is a 40 minute walk back and forth. I was wondering if there was a pasta place similar to cafe dukes around lexington ave and 59th. Cafe Metro is definitely not an option as I have been spoiled by Cafe Duke's plentiful options so I am looking for a place as close as possible to that. Any help would be great!
