You'll be bellowing, too, but from pleasure at having discovered the most wonderful little treasure — the finally open Stellina Pasta Café, in a small storefront/dining room (reminiscent of nearby The Pitted Olive in that way) at 3342 Watson Rd. Open since Monday, Stellina had a healthy lunch crowd this rainy Friday, and our house salad (plenty big enough to share, and with beets!), the butternut squash lasagna and a rich dish of wild mushroom agnolotti in brown butter with walnuts were delish.

The pasta's housemade and organic, if you're into that, there are rotating daily specials and a constant menu of sandwiches, plus Kaldi's coffee drinks, sweets and take-home pastas and cheeses...and the space is cute as a button, with cafe tables and window seats, too.

Is this the former Bastante space?

No, just across the street. The former Bastante space is now the fourth in a local Mexican chain, El Paisano. Stellina Pasta's front window provides a view, oddly enough. of The Sober Camel across the street!

I had the grilled veggie sandwich yesterday and it was great!
