49 W Aylesbury Rd
So My Hubby and I were out and about last night to REI. We have been there a few times over the last few weeks and kept seeing things NOW OPEn sign above this little place called Pasta Blitz. So we drove by and peered in and figured lets try it. The place is very cute. It reminds me a of a Pizzeria but with a bit more class. The decor is very nice and warm with a wonderful orange color and red accents. THey say they are brining their customers authentic Italian dishes just like the ones their mom used to prepare back in Naples, Italy with both the decor and authentic Italian cuisine. The website is very friendly and has a complete list of daily lunch specials (which there are at least 4 every day), their menu and much more.
The food... They start you with bread and an olive oil/balsamic vinegar mix with seasoning
We started with the MOZZARELLA STICKS
7) Served with a side of tomato sauce 5.95. They were the best I have ever had (not sure if they were but they tasted homemade)
I had PENNE ALLA CARBORANA
Penne pasta sauteed with olive oil, pancetta and egg yolk in a light cream wine sauce, finished with romano cheese & fresh blck pepper 10.95- It was yummy. The sauce was different from any carborana that I have ever had (not as think and some different tastes) but was very good.
My Hubby had CHICKEN PARMIGIANA
Tender chicken breast, lightybreaded & pain fried. Topped with melted mozzarella cheese. Served with spaghetti in our tomato sauce 10.95 It was HUGE!
Everybody was very friendly and plenty of people check in on us. There were about 5 other tables while we were there but they set up 2 different tables for 9 and placed reserved markers on them. So I figure it gets good business. The place is also BYOB.
They do take out like any regular pizza place- I noticed the take out menu said something about special catering and had different discounts for different size catering amounts from 8 ppl to 20 ppl (each number had a higher discount)
I will be going back!!!!!
