So good! Yum. The real thing. The owner is great, has had the place for decades, since the beginning with his brother. Don't expect a fancy Italian experience, it is a lunch counter in the middle of the market. Raw... but certainly part of the charm. Excellent lasagna, huge meatball sandwich, spaghetti and meatballs are all killer. Pizza slices are good too but I'm sure a whole hot pie is great.

Don't go to that Pike Place Chowder with their long lines. Stop by and sit down at the Pasta Bar next door. You will not regret.

Very cool place. The food is delicious with good price and the owner is just awesome! If you're looking for a place to have an Italian food for lunch, look no more, this is where you should go.

So we thought we were enjoying the place until we saw what was going on in the background. All the counters were filthy. Normally after prepping a meal your supposed to wipe down the cutting board space and they did not.
They kept making sandwiches and other meals on top of the cutting board that had all sorts of grease, sauces and other things. One of the guys took out pasta from the water and dumped it into the plate, he saw that something yellow was on the plate, he dug his hands into the pasta with his bare hands and continued to serve that pasta to a customer. One of the workers was very friendly and enthusiastic but he was the main person throwing things around.
We had pizza and it was served cold.
Definitely needs to keep up with health standards.

FANTASTIC PASTA AND VEGETARIAN FRIENDLY! So it's a legit bar with pasta instead of alcohol and it has a great new York charm to it. The workers/owners are very friendly and genuinely look like they really enjoy their job. Cannot recommend it enough
