SALADS, Pasta & Pizza.
Very casual, nice ambiance for informal conversation. While they advertise the pasta and pizza, and they are excellent, the salads are some of the best in the neighborhood. Like Pagliacci, but less expensive! If you're dieting but need to take others along, this is a perfect choice for a quick lunch or dinner.
Machine-made pasta surprises with its consistent quality.. In Short Key to Pallino's vision is a machine from Switzerland that portions, cooks and drains a serving of pasta in 90 seconds; kids love the "pasta rocket" for the name as much as parents appreciate the speedy delivery. The pasta is available as thin spaghetti, cheese ravioli or chicken tortellini, and is topped with one of fifteen sauces that the staff prepares on the spot. Two minutes after ordering and paying at the counter, a bowl of pasta and a slice of bread arrives at the table. Grilled panini, salads and sweets round out the menu.
Pasta in a hurry.
Impressively good pasta in a hurry. This place is somewhere between fast-food and sit-down. My only complain is that everything on the menu seems to be a bit more expensive than you'd expect.
