“We just had a great dinner at Pasta Fresca tonight. The complementary bruschetta was very good. I thoroughly enjoyed the lasagna, with a creamy bechamel sauce that was neither too heavy nor too cheesy, though it was a soft lasagna rather than a stiff and crunchy one, which happens to be fine by me. My wife liked the gnocchi in Amatriciana sauce, which was well cooked and rich, but again not terribly heavy. The portions were surprisingly generous, and with two drinks we got out for under 250RMB (admittedly without starter or dessert). Well done.”
