Pasta Mondo University
Pasta Mondo University is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Toronto. It’s the second of two locations spun off from a manufacturing facility that specializes in freshly made pasta. All their meat is halal.
Their concept is quick-service — so the interior is small with very limited seating. We recommend ordering takeout.
When you get to the counter to place your order — grab a menu. It’s actually instructions on how to order. You start with selecting your size which are all various sizes of takeout containers. You then move on to selecting your pasta shape, sauce, protein, cheese and finally — your vegetables. You can make hundreds of different combinations!
After placing your order, you can expect to get your meal within 6-8 minutes. Every dish is made to order. They make all their pasta in-house each day and feature a special house pasta that changes daily.
I had a hard time choosing my pasta combination — but eventually went with penne, alfredo sauce, chicken, mozzarella cheese, jalapeno and sauteed mushrooms. The ingredients were so fresh and flavourful I was definitely surprised at the level of quality for how quickly everything was prepared.
If you’re a pasta lover, you have to check Pasta Mondo University out next time you’re in downtown Toronto.
