I’m going to state something incredibly controversial- Pasta Genova is amazing. Gotcha. Of course we all know it is the best place ever. For friends who have not had the pleasure of eating some of their wonderful Italian fare, make sure I take you there on your next visit to Kingston! I’ve banned myself from clothes shopping lately, and Pasta Genova seems to have taken over as my favourite place to shop…second only to the LCBO, naturally, which is conveniently located around the corner.
I can’t quite believe it now, but somehow I lived in Kingston for a year and a half without knowing of its existence. Fortunately a friend brought some of their foccacia bread to a potluck and I was hooked after one dip in the balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Pasta Genova has become our Friday night destination for a take home feast. Their green olives marinated with garlic and cumin are not to be missed, as well as the Friday cheese sticks. I just can’t get over how reasonable the prices are for fresh pasta, sauce and pizza dough. They’ve always got lots of fresh herbs, and their variety of pasta sauces and cold cut meats can’t be beat. I’ve never tried their made-to-order foccacia sandwiches, but have heard good reports.
So here’s to Pasta Genova, my Friday night friend, and great partner to a glass of red wine.
