My husband and I were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversay. We wanted someplace with excellent food and a romantic atmoshpere. Friends had told me about a place near our house called Pasta Freska. It sits on a traingular plot of land and the building footprint somewhat resembles an arrowhead. The front door is located at the tip or point. The building is really unassuming, it looks like a typical pizza joint, and in fact, during the day they serve pizzas and grinders. .However at night, the chef takes over and begins to play. He creates the most amazing gormet dishes.
We had checked out several places and it was getting late, around nine pm. My husband an I peered tentatively in the front door. We saw no customers and were sure that was a bad sign. Fortunately, one of the servers saw us and urged us to enter. She asked us if we would like to sit outside, and to our delight Pasta Freska has a charming outside deck located a half story up on th rear side of the buiding.
Pasta Freska is very different from most restraunts. Fist, there is no menu. For those of you who have trouble deciding what to eat, this is the place! Your server will sit down with you and ask you questions to determine what to serve you. Drink selections are based on what is being served to you and your selection in general terms. In other words, don't look for a wine list, there isn't any.
We were served garlic bread, an appetiser of eggplant, artichoke and cheese on a bed of red sauce, lightly dressed salad seasoned with myzithe cheese, a seafood pasta with enormous prawns and chunks of fish, a bowtie pasta with meat sauce and a stuffed chicken breast masala. Dessert consisted of tiramisu, spumoni ice cream and a chocolate torte. The food was beyond fabulous. We requested a glass of wine and the server brought out a very lovely merlot. She left the bottle with us, so we could choose to have more if we wished. It was truely an enchanting dining experience and worth every penney of it!
