It tastes like something you can buy at Safeway and make yourself.

Actually, the pasta and sauces you can buy at Safeway taste better.

Pasta is easy to cook well at home, so when I get it in a Restaurant it better blow my fucking socks off.

Their food is horrible! To the point it isn't even Italian food anymore or pasta.

i guess red sauce pasta is fairly easy

cook pasta in boiling water, prepare sauce. tomatoe sauce in a can, stir fry some ground beef, mushroom, chunks of tomatoe and add some spice to it. DONE!

^ You are so gullible.

Some strangers on RS tell you this and that, and you just believe it all.

Have some self-respect. Don't make their opinions your opinions. Formulate your own. How about actually visiting the restaurant first?

I'm not endorsing the restaurant at all. I'm endorsing you using the brain your mom gave you.

Because their food is cheap, and profit margins on pasta are good. Plus a lot of people have really low standards.

nah usually im a repeat customer. I dont really try new restaurants, unless friends or relatives recommand one. Or reading decent reviews on a certain restaurant, than im more than willing to give it a try.

I understand the charity aspect to it and it's great. For me personally though I would rather donate money on my own to a charity rather than to go down there and eat their crap.

Mugen - I'm not sure how they surivive but it's food we're talking about and everyone has different opinions. Doesn't matter what place we're talking about whether it's a hole in the wall, fine dining, or whatever. There will always be people who like it and people who don't. With this joint i'm a hater, some will agree some won't. So my suggestion will be go try it out and find out for yourself.

Last time I went there was 1998 or 1999. It was so bad, I never saw a reason to go back.

SkinnyPupp is right - even at those prices, I'd rather have a can of Chef Boy R Dee.

I'm not saying they serve dog shit but have you tried their pasta? It's horrible!!! I gave them three tries and that was it. I don't even know why I even went back to try it. Oh right, once was a friend's birthday dinner and one was because it was near the swimming facility around the Richmond Silver city. I never understood how all the locations can make the food taste the same. Same as in not good. I give them points for keeping the "standard" there.

Okay, I remember the one time I was a bit adventurous, I chose the Spaghetti with Browned Butter and Mizithra Cheese, ala Homer, and it was the worst decision ever.

But the other times that I've had some of their more normal spaghetti selections... it was palatable. Don't think it was gourmet by any means, but I didn't have any qualms with swallowing it and holding it down.

considering it has 3 ingredients i dont think your a fan of the cheese (which i think is fucking awesome) or browned butter (which can leave you with heavy heartburn)

Is it supposed to taste really salty? I think that was the main problem I had with it... incredibly salty. I didn't particularly like the taste either...

I don't know about browned butter, but I do like cheese... considering how much pizza I eat.

Yes.

Mizithra is good. My grandpa makes homemade stuff when I go back to greece.

browned butter is litteraly melted butter until it turns brown.
