Forget The Italians, It's All About the Japanese

I just have to say, this place is kind of amazing. This pasta place is run completely by the Japanese. It's sort of like my wildest fantasy, my love of italian cuisine re-created with the sensibility of the Japanese. Everything was delicious. Their lunch prix fixe is a great deal and the place is packed with locals who work in the area. i tried this wonderful homemade pasta with mushrooms, fresh ricotta and lemon with olive oil. It was fresh, different and delicious. Kristin ahd the simple parmesan pasta with proscuitto on top. They mix the cooked pasta in front of you on a cart inside the wheel of the parmesan, so the pasta takes on the flavour of the cheese from the wheel itself. It was ingenious! I loved it there.
