Sola Pasta Bar

OPENED97 DAYS AGO

The latest challenger in Soho’s carb-wars is Sola Pasta Bar, a new casual bar opening near Grand Street. Despite the area being no stranger to pasta spots, with The Sosta and Altesi Downtown already providing downtown diners with Italian classics nearby, the new venture stands out from the crowd with a curated menu and impressive credentials.

Launched by the former Head Chef of Eataly’s largest store, Massimo Sola is bringing his Italian, Michelin-starred experience to the city – looking to ‘revolutionize’ pasta and offer locals high-quality dishes at affordable prices.

The Spot

Chef Sola’s democratic philosophy can be found throughout the Grand Street restaurant, with the space dominated by the large open kitchen island – a reminder of its importance and that of the chefs at work. Diners can choose to sit at a large concrete communal table, more traditional leather banquette seating, or even right next to the action at the kitchen’s counter; as well as crafting Italian classics from the best farm-to-table seasonal ingredients, the chefs describe and even serve your meal to you from the central space. An integral part of Chef Sola’s ethos, it recreates the intimate experience of high-end dining.

The Food

While a small selection of salad and antipasti options can be found on the limited lunch and dinner menu, pasta is understandably the main event here. Showcasing eight dishes, guests can choose from pastas including linguine with clams, tagliatelle with porcini, fettuccine Bolognese, and penne all’arrabbiata – all of which can be made gluten-free. A number of daily specials keep the menu fresh, however in order to ‘save room’ for dessert the team has forgone other entrée options.

The Drinks

No true Italian meal is complete without wine – and Sola Pasta Bar’s menu does not disappoint, with an appropriately robust range of options and prices to satisfy everyone.

The Damage

Dishes range from $11-$20, while wine is between $9-22.

In A Nutshell

With its intimate, welcoming atmosphere and thoughtful philosophy, Sola Pasta Bar is set to be the new go-to for pasta in the neighbourhood. And since it comes from the chef who was the winner of the 2016 ‘Il Primo di Manhattan’ for the best pasta dish in the city, we’d say you’re in good hands.
