At Sicilian Pasta Kitchen choose from an extensive menu of great Southern Italian favourites as well as some modern Italian dishes.
This place tries a bit too hard with the young, eager wait staff. They seem to always have a new gaggle of fresh-faced kids experiencing their first job from the surrounding neighborhoods. Chirpy and energetic doesn't always equate to competent table service, which seems more chain restaurant oriented than higher end casual Italian. Service doesn't seem to reflect the menu. The Sunday night special of various pastas is a nice idea, generous for sharing, and taking home leftovers. However, the 1/2 dozen times I have dined here, I usually feel somewhat dissatisfied with the experience. Place is usually packed, they turn a good profit, but I sure wish there was competition nearby. The time before last, I made the mistake of looking down at the carpeting. It is the most disgusting filthy carpet I have seen in a restaurant still carrying a license. I assumed it was due for a cleaning, being spring and all. I was wrong, as I made the mistake of looking down on the last visit. I try hard to like this place, what comes from the kitchen is solid. They have to get it together in the front - it's a bit of a joke.
