Fresca Saint Petersburg

Fresca – Pasta cellar

This bistro is small and cute inside. All the details I saw I instantly loved: oval coat hangers, salt and pepper dispensers, chalkboard walls in the restroom with plenty of chalk to write on them!

The owners are there to be seen on the spot. They speak about different kinds of pasta (it’s cooked right there from the grain and you can buy some to take home), toppings, additional ingredients and other tasty things.

There is draft cider (which I adore in St. Pete, there’s always some draft cider), beer, tea, and coffee on the menu. There are also some soups and desserts.

As the bistro is tiny, you might want to book a table beforehand. There is one table for two, two tables for four and one communal table for a group (see the picture, it’s the biggest one). It gets a bit loud if there are people chatting, so it reminds me of Italian bistros.

The pasta is really something. I enjoy the possibility of choosing the kind of pasta and the topping, if I need Parmesan or not… It feels nice to be taken care of. Especially with hand-made pasta on the table!
