Pasta 51 Express
It’s takeaway pasta but it’s unrecognisable from the cold, joyless stuff you get in a supermarket meal deal. Pasta Express 51 serves up their own homemade pasta and slow-cooked sauces, with everything made from scratch by their team each day. Order it in a cone or carton to go, or eat in the fast-food style restaurant.
Head to the counter to choose your style of pasta and your sauce. Options range from a simple pomodoro and basil to a punchy monzese with sausage, gorgonzola, white wine and saffron. All the classics are there: bolognaise, carbonara, pesto, arrabbiata, and the ubiquitous mac and cheese. They also do stone-baked pizza – another Italian staple that works well on the hoof.
Pasta 51 Express is from the same family as the Trattoria 51 restaurants, and while this version is much more of an eat-and-go type place, the focus on simple, fresh ingredients is the same. It’s a handy option to know about if you want nutritious fast food in the city centre.
