Nothing hits the spot quite like a plate of fresh, homemade pasta!
A new pasta shop is in town, and just in time for carb season! Like a fine Italian wine, Century City’s glorious shopping center just gets better and better with time – the city’s newly Italy-based food hall is a major component in supporting our thesis. The internationally famed outpost, Eataly, has a new tenant called La Pasta Fresca and to be honest, we were sold when we saw that the word pasta in the restaurant’s name…
From made to order Tagliatelle alla Bolognese to Trenette al Pesto from Liguria, you can sit at the bar and order yourself a glass (or two) of vino as the chefs and pastai (pasta makers) work together to bring you plates of fresh pasta tossed in light complementary sauces — all prepared right before your eyes.
If seeing the pasta being made, cooked, and tossed inspires you to recreate the authentic dish yourself, guests can sign up for hands-on pasta making classes at La Scuola di Eataly by Valcucine – the cooking school located onsite!
Beyond that, there’s not much to say, because… PASTA!
