26 May Pasta Shop Ristorante and Art Gallery
How we did not find this gem sooner is beyond us. Pasta Shop Risotrante and Art Gallery is what a neighborhood restaurant should be: family-owned, local art on the walls, and some seriously delicious food. Right now, they’ve got a secret vegan menu (with plans to actually launch a full vegan menu), and they are happy to make alllllll the vegan Italian food for guests.
Start with the Live Forever Salad — Trent Special — and devour a plate of goodness filled with wild greens, brown rice, roma tomatoes, cashews and more. Then, for your main course, check out the rigatoni primavera. This dish features handmade noodles, veggies and cashews and won’t disappoint.
If rigatoni isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Their noodles are all house-made, fresh, gluten-free and vegan (we’re talking spinach, cracked black pepper pappardelle, linguini and more). Want ’em to go? No problem. You can take home noodles to up your Italian cooking game at home, too. We love that you can basically create your own pasta dish, and that they’ve got the secret vegan creations in their pockets, too — just ask.
For pizza, opt for the veggie pizza, hold the cheese.
The folks here are largely plant-based themselves, so they are knowledgeable about the vegan diet and even deliver some vegan bread brushed with olive oil instead of their typical garlic bread.
The Pasta Shop Ristorante even offers sorbets to get at that sweet tooth.
This spot is a perfect date spot, a perfect catch-up with friends spot, a perfect family spot. Check it out and you’ll see why we love it so.
