Carry out Pasta in Knox-Henderson (Dallas)

I have a hectic evening and my in-laws are coming into town tonight. I wanted to get some pasta to bring home, so we can have a casual dinner. Any places people can suggest in the Knox-Henderson area? Was looking at Urbino Pizza e Pasta, but their reviews aren't consistent. Any suggestions?

Is the Central Market Cafe any good? I cook so much, and the only time we go out to eat is a nice idea where to go get a simple weeknight meal.

  1. Try popping into Jimmy's - grab a package of meatballs, fresh (from Brooklyn) pasta and sauce.

      I was there, just today. Also try, Civello's Raviolissimo on North Peak at Bryan. Arguably, the best (and, cheapest) FRESH pasta and ravioli (18 pieces for $5.00) in Dallas. That's where Jimmy's buys their pasta for their Italian wine dinners that they have in the back room. I think they sell sauce as well. If not, buy the (house made) marinara or vodka cream sauce at Jimmy's.
      Btw, Civello's is open M-F 9-3 and Saturday by appointment only. keep those hours in mind if you go there.

        You should so tell Kim at the News about that pasta. I haven't tried the Jimmy's frozen, and many are questioning the fresh (or frozen choices) in town. And dude, you should still make fresh for your party if you can. If not, invite me and I will. ;)

          'Dude, you're funny! However, I'm going with Holy Ravioli. They're making my pasta order fresh today for me to pick up after work. I'd love to have invited you but my table (6) is maxed out. You'd have had to bring your own chair. Maybe next time.

          TW, would you say that the ravioli from Civello's is on par with Pastosa's?

          1. re: Scagnetti

            Are you going to mix it in your gruel?

              "Please, sir, I want some more."

            2. re: Scagnetti

              Have not had pasta from Pastosa's. But, Civello's is the best I've had in Dallas.

              1. re: twinwillow

                As reported below, I think I will have to add Holy Ravioli as the, "best fresh pasta in Dallas" list.

              Will def. check this place out! Thanks for the post :)

          2. Picked up my (fresh) egg pappardelle from Holy Ravioli tonight for tomorrows dinner. With a 20% off coupon,
            the 1-1/2 pound package came to $4.65.
            I'll report Sunday on how it was.

              My pappardelle from Holy Ravioli came out fantastic! They wrapped and folded one whole 6" wide 7' long sheet of beautifully made FRESH egg pappardelle pasta dusted with cornmeal between the sheets and separated at the folds with paper to make for easy unwrapping. I cut the long pasta sheet across at the folds (about 8" long) and then cut each 8" long piece into 3-two inch wide strips. Into salted boiling water for 6 minutes for perfect al dente pasta.
              Then, slightly drained and into the pan of creamy porcine mushroom sauce with crisp bits of fried pancetta and drizzles of white truffle oil on the top. UNBELIEVABLE! My guests (and, myself) were blown away!
              THANK YOU, HOLY RAVIOLI!

              1. re: twinwillow

                So now that you've been to Holy Ravioli, is it better than Civello's? Or can you not compare since you had pappardelle and not a ravioli from Holy Ravioli?

                1. re: pgwiz1

                  I'll refrain from an opinion until I have ravioli from HR. But, it will take some mighty good ravioli to beat Civello's.
