Their pasta is really good and the Bolognese sauce is to die for. Highly recommended.
Jia Tella Cambodian is also really good.

They are TERRIBLE sorry to say...
I work in SV and tried them once about 6 mos ago and it was the WORST. I even emailed the owner and told him of my experience and all he said was sorry..
I drive by there almost every day around lunch time and the place is deserted, what does that tell ya ??

Anyway just my 2 cents worth.

Funny how a place can be given a completely different opinion from one person to the next. I wonder if it depends upons who is the chef at the time? Maybe this sentinel reviewer got there at a good time and someone like "blondeambition" gets there at a terrible time. But a truly good place is just good. Now I don't know what to think.

Sorry, i've been there, and it SUCKS! The food is NOT good, and it is expensive. It's nothing special. The service was bad, too.

I tried SC Pasta Factory and it was ....just ok.

The pasta was good, but the service was s l o w! and the price was hIGh.$31+ for two pastas and a kids meal. And we used a coupon!!

You're better off throwing some pasta from the store into some boiling water the old fashion way, and then simmering some Pasta Barilla sauce...

Sorry SCPF, you wont be getting anymore of my [pasta] dough $$.

I've been there and the pasta was okay. Nothing to rave about and it was expensive. Probably would not go there again.

I forgot to add, ditto concerning Jia Tella Cambodian. The food is amazing. The Garlic Salmon is to die for and the spring rolls.....outstanding.
