Finally tried out the new Italian place in Gastown / Railrown -- Ask for Luigi
All the pasta is house made and you can see them making it in the kitchen.
Limited beer options (but for my lunch mate a Czech Pilsner was great on a hot day). I had a Campari and soda.
We shared an arugula salad with crispy prosciutto and a bit of Parmesan.
I chose the pappardelle with basil pesto, pine nuts, and a dollop of ricotta.
My lunch mate had risotto with peas.
