Pastabilities and the Coronavirus

Due to many factors including the Coronavirus and State mandates regarding restaurants, Luigi Vitrone's Pastabilities will only serve take out orders. Lunch take out orders will be available between 11:30am and 1:30pm, Tuesday-Friday. The lunch menu will be cash only and can be seen on our Menu page.

Dinner take out orders are available from 5:15pm to 8:00pm. The full menu is available, but no alcohol is available during this time.

We are a very small, very local business and we hope to serve you very soon.

Update: We are allowed to sell alcoholic beverages once again. The alcohol can not exceed 40% of the total bill and can not be consumed on premises, but if you are hungry and THIRSTY, take out orders are available for lunch and dinner!
