Riverfront Times' Description
Freshly made pasta is a revelation in this red-sauce, white-sauce town, and Jamey and Lisa Tochtrop's charming neighborhood café offers an oft-changing menu of fresh lasagna, long-cut and stuffed pasta dishes. You can also get the husband-and-wife team's pasta to go, and cook it yourself - though once you've had one of the restaurant's flavorful preparations, you'll wonder whether the extra step is necessary. Jamey Tochtrop's kitchen also turns out an array of fantastic sandwiches, including the "South Side Smoke," a plump, fleetingly sweet pulled-pork gem, and Lisa Tochtrop's desserts include carrot cake and tiramisu.

How many times have you stood in front of a large refrigerated case, trying to decide which take-home meal looked the best, the freshest, the whatever-est? You won't have that problem at Stellina Pasta Café and not only because the refrigerated case at this south-city restaurant is relatively small. The menu is brief: three pasta dishes, a half-dozen sandwiches, a few salads and sweets. Better yet, every dish is a winner, from the terrific homemade pasta (the specific dishes change daily, but there is always a long-cut pasta, a stuffed pasta and a lasagna) to the mouth-watering "South Side Smoke" pulled-pork sandwich to even the house salad, which features garbanzos, beets and a dash of sunflower seeds. In the mood to cook? You can also get uncooked freshly made pasta. But don't try to claim it as your own unless you already have a reputation as a gourmet.
Tips from foursquare
Nothing short of vegetarian bliss! Don't miss the "Veg Out" sandwich with grilled eggplant, red pepper, red onion, zucchini, spinach and herb goat cheese on multigrain bread. http://bit.ly/18RQAb6

The South Side Smoke is the best sandwich in St. Louis
