The pasta's are relatively cheap. But you do not get enough sauce. Sometimes watery, but nice for a quick bite ;)

It is what it name implies: a quick pasta at a reasonable price. Their sauces are actually quite decent, and you could pay a lot more for something similar in many of the brasseries nearby.

Nothing Italian about it. Pasta in a cup. No place to sit. Wouldn't call it a restaurant. Not even a take away.

I love this, ideal place if you have little time and need something to eat. Pasta in a cup and choose your topping and off you go...basic as it says...but delicious at that :p
