Kingston Eats: Pasta Genova

✣ Top pick ✣

I have passed by Pasta Genova so many times and finally got the chance to go in.  This is a lovely little Italian deli.  The owner is very friendly and nice.  The lady at the counter is also very helpful and sweet.  You can buy all sorts of fresh housemade items including deli meat, sausages, sauces, seasonal vegetables, pasta, pizza dough etc.  The store also carries packaged Italian goods.  Their pasta, bread dough, and sandwiches are superb!  Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food you get.  Also kudos for using biodegradable plastic bags😉

Perfect housemade pasta🙂

0611 Vegetable focaccia sandwich (Pasta Genova)Vegetable focaccia sandwich
Contains eggplant, tomato, artichoke, olive, red pepper etc.  It’s very well made.  It’s not overly salty.  It has a nice balance of all kinds of vegetables in it without having either one ingredient overpowering the flavour.  The herbed focaccia bread is amazing.

0711 Cannoli (Pasta Genova)Cannoli
Shell is crispy (but strong enough to hold the filling).  The filling is rich, creamy and slightly tangy.  I think they fill the cannoli fresh once you order it.
