Ask for Luigi

In a small, stylishly boisterous room on the far eastern edge of Gastown, seemingly simple Italian pasta gets the star treatment. The feel of the place, with generous portions and glass tumblers for table wine, is unpretentious, but the cooking is serious: The spaghetti nero with octopus and jalapeño features chewy, ink-black noodles that epitomize the term al dente. By-the-glass wines rotate constantly: Whenever a new bottle is opened, the staff rings a bell – a signal to get your order in before the situation changes again.
