After months of a new pasta options being teased at SFU, Pasta Polo Express started serving customers this week, albeit with limited options and hours.

The restaurant, which occupies the space in which Pasta Organico had advertised to be ‘opening soon’ for over a year, opened officially for two hours on October 3, and staff behind the counter said they would remain open this week as long as they had food to sell.

The menu is currently just a printed out piece of paper, taped up to where customers should expect a full menu in the future. Available options right now include lasagne, fettuccine alfredo, and linguini in two different types of sauces, as well as salads.

The staff behind the counter said that they don’t have official hours just yet, and will stay open as long as they’re selling food. Since they make everything fresh, the plan seems to be to sell food until it stops being asked for.
