Food Friday: Daniela’s Pasta & Pastries

June 15th, 2012 by The Professor

We first noticed this small new shop from our booth at Honfest last year as it opened up with promising deserts for sale and fresh home made pasta choices.  Now, it’s in full swing and even has printed menus!  With only 2 tables inside and 2 display counters it’s not a place where you’ll probably spend a lot of time sitting down.  That’s ok because Daniela Useli, the former chef at Sotto Sopra, prepares everything for easy take out.  From thick wonderful slices of lasagna (in soo many varieties) to delicate cannoli, you can grab an entire meal to go, and either have their helpful staff heat it for you or give you hints on the best way to heat it at home.  How about Saccottini di Polpa di Granchio, her hand-made egg pasta filled with crab-meat, shrimps, Italian parsley, sundried tomatoes, garlic, vodka, cream served with fresh tomato marinara sauce?  Hungry yet?  You can even have her custom make your pasta by the pound for take home.  Her ravioli are fantastic, delicious monsters and a great deal.  On a recent trip we sampled from all over the menu and didn’t find a single dud, but instead found a treasure trove of choices – who thought meatballs could be so tasty?  The small case in the shop lets you see some of the specials, and the menu offers the wide array of lasagna and ravioli choices.  Lunch and Dinner packages are very reasonably priced and very filling.  Save room for the desert case… just sayin.
