Unlike all other Fasta Pasta chains, this one is located in a food court. You’re not going to get quality Italian food here, but you will get a cheap, consistent Italian fix. They even have $7.90 lunch specials on at the moment, so everything just got cheaper.
Today, I ordered the Penne Rosso. The meal was ready after a 15 minute wait and the dish was nicely presented. The pasta was al dente and the sauce was creamy and delicious. The use of spinach and sun dried tomato was definitely a highlight. The chicken was slightly overcooked and there was a very conservative amount. They also used chicken thigh which wasn’t to my liking.
For what you get, it’s not bad. I’d even say some of the food here is better than some of the dodgy Italian restaurants I’ve been to. The location is great too. In the past, I’ve had to walk all the way to South Terrace to get Fasta Pasta, but now it’s within walking distance from work.
