Holy ravioli, we’ve got some amazing news to share, Vancouver.

One of the city’s top pasta joints, Ask For Luigi, is officially launching its new sister concept tomorrow.

On May 1, the eatery, which is a part of the Kitchen Table Restaurants group, will be unveiling its new elevated, takeout-friendly spot Pastificio Di Luigi (Luigi’s Pasta Factory) to Vancouverites.

Pastificio Di Luigi’s temporary pop-up spot will be at Kitchen Table’s much-loved comfort eats spot Pourhouse, at 162 Water Street in Gastown.

The new concept will eventually move to a different, permanent location in the future.

Folks can expect a full selection of Italian eats like house-made pasta and sauces from Pastificio Di Luigi.

The eatery will also offer household grocery staples and Italian specialty ingredients like sliced meats and cheeses, olive oils, canned tomatoes, and preserves, along with dried pasta, and even bottled cocktails and wines.

“The initial idea behind this concept was to prepare homespun, delicious food that was designed to travel well and would still represent the same level of execution you would see if you were dining in,” says Kitchen Table Executive Chef Alessandro Vianello.

“This project has been in the works for quite some time and given the current circumstances we thought there was no better time than the present to launch. We can’t wait for people to see what we’ve got in store.”

Pastificio Di Luigi will be offering delivery via Uber Eats, or folks can order for pickup online through the eatery’s website.

The new pasta destination will be open daily from noon to 8 pm, giving you plenty of opportunities to try some of its drool-worthy eats.
