Upon entering Pasta Sisters the simplicity of the décor and the complexity of the smells greet you almost as kindly as the Irish looking gentleman behind the counter. This is Francesco. He is in fact from Podova, Italy and the man who will take you on this fresh pasta adventure. Hand made ten feet behind the prosciutto filled deli fridge the pasta and gnocchi recipes are several generations old. Everything is highly recommended. The beautifully made Italian focaccia taste even better after a clean wipe of the plate, complete with a palette washing of their lemonade meant for a Roman summer afternoon. A farewell ciao is in order for Francesco as you exit to a bench down the street with your name on it.
Alternative: Check out Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken on the corner from Mateo’s. They have some great fixings straight from the South. Complete with beer and wine.
