Quick review to flag an excellent spot in the CBD (on Little Bourke, next to Brother Baba Budan near Elizabeth).

As you can guess from the title, it's a pasta place. It reminded be of a pasta-based DoC: a limited range of produce driven starters (burrata, charcuterie, a nice looking pressed octopus), several pasta mains based around the type of pasta, and a handful of traditional desserts. We had to wait a bit for a table so only got to do the pasta as we had to be somewhere else later on, but both were excellent - an asparagus tortelloni with sage butter, and a spaghetti with clams and smoked tomatoes. Both dishes were quite dry, highlighting the pasta well. Also on the menu the night we were there was a saffron tagliatelle with spanner crab, a couple of interesting sounding risotto, a short pasta (orechiette I think) with a ragu. So probably six or eight mains.

Definitely on the list for a return visit. Booking recommended at the weekend, but probably only when you are at the other end of the city thinking about dinner as I reckon max 1 hr waiting.
