Pasta Pop Up
Staff super friendly and food was good.
It was super busy and so although they had a table for us we sat at the bar so another couple could take it.
The person who helped us was super kind and helpful :)
Don’t let the cheesy name fool you! This hidden gem is one of the best Italian restaurants in the city. I go here about once or twice a month. Service is on par every time. Great wine selection.
Here are my GO-TOs
Risotto (A must) even if it’s not on the menu. They’ll make it for you.
Squid ink seafood pasta
We ordered from their special 2020 SF Restaurant week menu. All the dishes were delicious. Service was attentive & excellent. We had a wonderful time. We will return to try their regular menu soon. Highly recommended!
Service was great. My 8 friends and i were there after BBB. I had linguine with crab but the crab tasted frozen (and its crab season). The calamari, brussel sprouts were excellent, as well as the salads. My friends pappardelle bolognese was delicious as well as the clams, and squid ink pasta. I would go back but not order the crab linguine. Oh, it was super noisy at 8 pm but died off by 9:30. This pop up place needs better decor. It has been there for a few years but still looks barren. It needs a “pop”!
Pasta Pop -Up has a nice simple menu. The place was cozy, and the service was good. The basic pastas were pretty good, but I was surprised they didn't have more light and vegetarian options. The brussell sprouts tasted like balsamic vinegar, and should have been crispier. It would be nice if they had more dessert options.
The pesto was actually watery and the wait staff was overwhelmed even though the place was empty
Great service, Serg was incredible - welcoming and obliging to help provide the best experience possible. The food was delicious, house made and absolutely wonderful. The price value was great, the perfect place for a date night or a dinner before a night out with friends.
Great place for pasta. It fills up fast (especially around the 7:30p dinner time). We will be back.
Delicious homemade pasta. Excellent, personalized service. Very Italian feeling. Perfect for the neighborhood
Very welcoming and warm staff. Loved Mom from Rome. Food was delicious. Pasta was fresh, interesting and perfect proportions.
The waiter was friendly and helpful. However it took a long time to get started, even after we told two of the staff we were ready to order. The restaurant was only 1/3 full and it was Saturday night so they must have been short staffed. Once we ordered the food came quickly. My Pasta Carbonara was very salty and the sauce was thick but oily. It didn’t appear to be made of cream. The panda cotta was tasty but very thick, unlike most panda cotta. More like a bland crime brûlée. The raspberry sauce it was drenched in didn’t taste very good. It was very loud! I won’t be going back as there are many wonderful Italian restaurants in the neighborhood.
Classic food!!! So good!
