Rating: Good pasta, weird fast casual format
I met John G for a nice little lunch in Culver City on this particular Friday.
Pasta Sisters in located on the corner of Helm’s Bakery.
Yep. Helms bakery location.
Small interior space with very little (or no?) interior dining space.
The fast casual menu at the counter.
A bit of focaccia bread.
Spaghetti Truffle. A daily special simple pasta with white truffle.
Spaghetti Bottarga. Dry Sardinian mullet roe, olive oil, garlic.
Tagliatelle Porcini. Fresh Italian porcini, cream, parsley.
Gnocchi Pesto. Pine nuts, basil, parmigiano reggiano, pecorino romano, extra virgin olive oil.
BRESAOLA CARPACCIO. air dried carpaccio, arugula, shaved parmigiano reggiano, lemon olive oil.
This is pretty good pasta, but it is served in an odd fast casual format. Typical counter ordering where you pair the very small number of pastas with a variety of simple sauces. The results are quite “tight” (aka good) but very very “classic.” They aren’t new style more integrated pasta dishes like at a place like Felix. As such, I’d only come for a quick lunch. I don’t do fast casual formats for dinner. But if I was near Culver City and craving pasta it’s not bad at all. There is a very nice patio too.
