Lasagna for lunch-- North Berkeley

zunzie Jul 17, 2007 10:02 AM

I'm pregnant. I'm dying for lasagna. Anyone know where I can get a take-out order?

I'm thinking Cugini on Solano, but I can't find a menu online. I know I must be overlooking some other places...I'm blanking.

    A little googling revealed a menu for Cugini:

    I don't see lasagna listed there, though.

    Wasn't there an Italian restaurant on Shattuck, somewhere just south of Durant on the west side? I believe it had a fireplace in the centre of the main dining room.

      Giovanni's? Pretty bad.

        That sounds probable. Too bad. They seemed pretty good when I was there, but that was over fifteen years ago, and restaurants do change in quality over much shorter periods of time.

          I don't think Giovanni's has changed much in the past 40 years.

            Ah, well. My tastes in Italian food may just be different then. And it is true that I had pizzas, not pastas.

      The Juice Bar Collective on Vine has a vegetarian lasagne. Not my favorite dish there, but definitely edible and good for you too.

        LoCoco's on Shattuck.

        Pretty decent lasagna if I remember correctly.

            Lo Coco's was the first place I thought of, however there's no lasagna on their take out menu.

          Nino's Brazilian restaurant and pizzeria has it. I think they even deliver. I don't know if it's any good or not. But it's there.

            Pasta Shop on 4th St. often has it.

              Yeah, but I'm not driving there unless I *have* to. Wanted to call in an order somewhere and pick up a hot meal and zip back to work.

                  Hm, never been there. I'll have to pop in.

                  Edit: Yikes. No dice today, they're closed on Tuesdays.

                    For future reference, Lola's is now open every day of the week. Not sure whether they have lasagna, though.
