Carb-lovers unite! We’ve found a tasty Italian joint in Mount Lawley that’s completely dedicated to pasta, and we’ve never seen (or tasted) anything quite like it. We’re talking customised dishes of perfectly cooked pasta here, people.
All made in house, there are three simple steps to dining at Solo Pasta. First of all, you choose your flavour—these guys make classic, beetroot AND spinach pasta. Then you choose the length, because yes, they sell pasta by the metre (!!). There are 3 metres in a standard dish but obvs feel free to add on as many damn metres of heavenly goodness as you like.
Step three involves sauces, which are split into tomato bases (think your classic bolognese), cream bases (AKA carbonara and butter pumpkin), and olive oil (paired with the likes of cherry tomatoes or sardines).
While you can't really go wrong, we love the tasmanian mussels with squid, baby octopus, bay scallops, anchovies and chilli mixed with their fresh to death classic pasta. The chicken with lime, coconut curry, coriander, peanut and caramelised chilli is a slightly strange but amazing mix of Asian and Italian in one bowl, and the cream based trio of mushrooms with spinach pasta forever leaves us wanting more.
If you're trying to cut down on carbs, opt for the zoodles (read: zucchini noodles) with a crunchy cabbage side salad, but if you're not concerned about calories, don't go home without treating yourself to the tiramisu. Oh, and there's plenty of wine and cocktails to go around, too.
Perfect for date night and catch ups with the whole fam, Solo Pasta is always a good idea.
