Luisa’s Pasta started off simply as a mother striving to feed her family the very best meals with fresh organic ingredients. After 3 years of selling her homemade pastas and sauces at farmers markets, Luisa opened a brick and mortar fast casual pasta bar at downtown’s 4 Houston Center. The bar offers an extensive menu of fresh pastas, ravioli, lasagnas, salads, and desserts prepared on the spot.
Pasta purveyors will love Luisa’s meat cravers bucatini with grilled Italian sausage and a traditional Bolognese sauce. Or try the smoked salmon casarecce with smoked salmon, walnut basil pesto, capers, arugula, and cherry tomato. Luisa’s also offers a “Create Your Own” menu full of fresh flavors.
The pasta bar primarily serves the business crowd downtown during the lunch rush hour, but pasta fans can still buy packaged pasta to make at home from Luisa’s. Catering is also available.
