Pasta Sisters, West

The historic Beacon Laundry Building, Culver City. Zig-Zag Moderne & Art Deco Architecture. 1931.

I'd driven by Pasta Sisters in Mid-City, Pico & Arlington, several times, but never stopped. My yarny friends at our West Adams Knitters Group highly recommend this spot. The Mid-City location is in a strip mall with just a couple of tables. Take-out is encouraged. You can buy a prepared meal or buy the homemade pasta and sauce separately to cook at home.
I was pleased to hear that Pasta Sisters was opening a sit-down, casual restaurant in the Helms Bakery Complex, Culver City. 
On Tuesday, Larry and I ventured there for dinner. It was jam-packed! The place is huge. There are tables and counters inside for seating and a large, covered patio in front with lots of tables and HEATERS. Looks like there's a patio in back too. The back patio was closed on Tuesday. 
We ordered at the counter and then found a seat at the end of one of the large, community tables on the patio. Did I say the place was packed? Yes. So, service was a bit slow, but we could see that the staff was working hard to bring out everyone's food. They brought a basket of delicious bread. The price-point is excellent for this quality of pasta and sauce. We were dining early, so it was the children's hour. This made for a rather noisy experience. We will dine at a later hour in the future.

Larry ordered Tagliatelle pasta with Bolognese sauce. I ordered Pappardelle with Porcini Mushroom sauce. We shared a plate of roasted vegetables. Everything was yummy!

I really like this end of Culver City, east of the downtown CC area. I've always loved the Helms Bakery building in it's many incarnations over the years. The neon on the Beacon Laundry and the original Helms Olympic Bread sign are highlights of visiting Culver City!

Pasta Sisters in Culver City is way more convenient for us to purchase fresh pasta and sauce than Eataly in Century City. We shall return often.
