    Pasta Project

    Has anyone been there yet? I've just read a review on the web. Seems to be a nice place to visit.

    Metro station: Taganskaya.
    Address: 22 Verhnyaja Radishevskaya.

    I enjoyed it. located at taganka.
    futuristic, cute and simple.

    computerized menu and ordering. One waiter serves you.
    the menu is on a flat screen, touch screen ordering.

    the tables are booths, so you really cant move around that much.

    the food, was not bad, the pasta was just fine, the salad, wasn't that great.

    enjoy, they plan to have a 2nd one open up on sretenka I believe.

    A bit too urban for me. Not too cozy. The ordering process is fun! Prices are not that low. The menu is indeed healthy. This will be a chain as far as I know. I was there Friday evening, the article said to make reservations. I did. The place has half full at 8 pm.

    I ate there a couple months ago with the site's very own Polly. Lunch ran us probably about 600-700 rubles total, so average-ish prices. Food wasn't great, but not bad either. Environment was sterile/clean, but the computer ordering process was done much better at the Phlegmatic Dog. (although PP has pictures, which was nice)

    Saw a new PP spot the other day that opened on Pokrovka (closer to Maroseika).

    thanks. I have found out that there is a pasta project at baumanskaya next to temple bar, and one down in chertanovo too.

    these are not all my favorite locations, but plan to visit one. will try the mushrooms too.

    i have been at pokrovka by chance. just needed to have a lunch and entered the 1st door with a-la italian name.
    didn't like that place at all. strange place, strange mix of italian and spicy chinise or japanise food in the menu. good idea with that electronic menu, but 'ask for a bill' option didn't work.
    not very clean place imho.
    some prices were very high in my opinion for such a place. i remember i was looking at dorado in the menu thinking if it can be fresh there. then looked at the guys at the kitchen and somehow decided better not to test it

    and my risotto was disgusting...

    hmmm, rissotto, no thats a tough (serious) one. Not too many places in Moscow, and possibly the world (thats including NYC), can do a perfect rissotto.

    as for the place, I still want to go, as in the mood a while back for some descent pasta.

    do you have another choice?

    Ive done couversior and ogni next door, so so.

    options?

    I think there's a new PP at Frunzenskaya as well now. The Taganka one was always packed at lunchtime, so it seemed strange that they've closed down.
