In the 21st century, more and more food stores are starting to go eco-friendly and natural in their food production. People are becoming more conscious of what they eat and want the freshest possible food choices. Organic food is the new trend in both restaurants and supermarkets, and the pasta at La Chitarra is no exception.

A small but tidy shop, La Chitarra is all about selling great homemade pasta without all the nasty preservatives inside. Choose your noodles and sauce and the specialists at La Chitarra will cook it up for you on the spot. They have everything you would like, including grilled vegetables to mix in your dish. They even offer hemp noodles and seaweed, and the add-in options include olives, artichokes, eggplant, and various cheeses. Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong. We recommend the saffron and ravioli filled with pancetta and provolone or the potato and spinach gnocchi. They even have tiramisu and pannacotta to add something sweet to the end of your meal. The restaurant is also quite inexpensive, giving fresh pasta-lovers another reason to come again.
