Va Bene Pasta Deli: A must-try for pasta lovers

Two issues here:

1. Their space is too small for their overflowing customers – or maybe it just looks that way because of the space? haha! So careful when moving cause you might bump someone.
2. We waited for our orders for so long. No excuses. We already pre-ordered our dishes days before and we arrived in time for our reservation. Well they refilled us with their complimentary brushcetta-like appetizer so just minus 1 star.

Too bad cause the pastas were so gooood!

One slice Salamino Pizza – do not bother ordering their pizza – Pizza Hut is even better.

This was the first time I’ve tried truffle pasta – Organic tagliolini with fres portobello mushrooms & truffle oil (we ordered this because MJ loves anything with truffle) and I did not like it. But now, I crave it!!! Wasn’t love at first bite for sure. Will give a more detailed review re this pasta dish when I try it again :)

The Black ink homemade spaghetti tomato based seafood marinara (whew) is also love. I was really interested on trying this because of the black ink pasta and I thought it will influence the dish’s flavor but it did not – which is not a bad thing at all for me :) You won’t feel like fed-up eating this dish, unlike other creamy pastas. Both pasta noodles were cooked perfectly.

Basil crusted lambchops w/ vegetable ratatouille and gorgonzola potato ravioli in natural lamb jus – this was ok. Not really memorable in the taste department (and it was quite expensive) – but I might give it another try ;) Oh the flavor that I remember which I was not a fan of is the lamb jus.

We ordered 2 desserts: strawberries a la milena and cioccolato orange parfait – nothing special too.

Did I mention they make their own pastas and even sell it? Yes yes yes!!! You can see it in their glass display.

And if you’re craving for a pasta that is not in their menu, worry not cause they can make it for you! To answer my question earlier, nope, they really have a lot of customers – let their pastas speak for them!!! As for their service, hopefully on our next visit it will be better.
