Pasta-like Italy, not red sauce-MSP

Quince | Aug 12, 2008 03:10 PM

I have a craving for a really great dish of fresh handmade pasta. Where should I go where I won't be disappointed? I'm looking for somewhere you walk out wondering how such deliciousness was created with just a few simple ingredients. I thought Broder's Pasta Bar didn't quite cut was good, but I'm looking for pasta a notch above that.

Would D'amico Cucina be worth it? And would the waitstaff be angry at you for taking up space in their restaurant if all you wanted to eat was pasta?

How about some of the non-Italian fine dining restaurants that have a pasta dish or two on their menu? How's the pasta at La Belle Vie, Heidi's, Heartland, or 112 Eatery?

Is there a wonderful Italian restaurant with great pasta that I'm missing? I've only been to Broder's and Luci Ancora (also not quite good enough, alas).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
