Authentic Italian Eats at YYC Pasta Bar

17th Ave’s newest restaurant and Calgary’s first ever designated pasta bar is officially open for dine-in services, and is plating up traditional, made-in-house Italian pastas alongside an assortment of authentic Italian starters and desserts, all created by former Toscana Italian Grill executive chef, Yash Sharma. 

Authentic Italian Starters, Make-Your-Own Pasta and More

Start your meal off with YYC Pasta Bar’s impressive selection of starters like Calamari, bruschetta – which is made fresh daily – and the always popular Arancini. Then channel your inner chef with their Make-Your-Own pasta portion of the menu. For this delicious selection, you first choose from the pasta options including penne, spaghetti or fettuccine, followed by your choice of sauces, with variations such as white wine sauce, rose´ or creamy pesto. Finally, you get to the good stuff and select your veggies and protein options like shrimp, Italian sausage and meatballs. 

Chef Specialties From Made-In-House Pasta

Pick all your favourite toppings and flavours and throw them together in one extravagant dish, or step outside your comfort zone and try one of the expertly curated chef specialties such as Penne Arrabiata, featuring spicy garlic tomato sauce with roasted bell peppers and onions, or Gnocchi gorgonzola, a dish made with potato dumplings and gorgonzola sauce. Either way, this made-in-house pasta will not disappoint.  

Finish Your Meal With Delicious Italian Wines and Desserts

No Italian meal is complete without add-ons like wine and dessert. YYC Pasta bar makes authentic Italian favourites like Tiramisu, which is made in-house daily, along with treats such as cheese cake or chocolate cake. Their drink menu consists of Italian wines varying from sparkling  to red and white. You can also wash down your meal with their selection of refreshing Italian beers. 

We’re already drooling thinking about the amazing feast awaiting us at YYC Pasta Bar. They are now open for dine in at their 17th Ave location, but if you’re more comfortable with ordering in, you can also order online for pickup, here!
