DC Pasta Company Ready to Open

Casual Italian eatery will occupy former Palate site on Pearl Road

The new The D.C. Pasta Company will open next week, co-owner Carmela del Busso said.

"It will be the beginning of next week," del Busso said. "Which day, we're not sure yet."

The restaurant, which will take over the  site at 12214 Pearl Rd., will feature casual, traditional Italian fare, 25 wines under $25 and affordable entree prices aimed at attracting the whole family. 

The menu will include eight to 10 homemade pastas, each offered in three different sizes to satisfy parties big and small. 

"We're going to make all the pasta from scratch," del Busso said.

She has partnered with Dante Boccuzzi, who owns Dante and Ginko, for the venture. 

"He's the D and I'm the C," she said.

Del Busso, who also owns  in Broadview Heights, believes she and Dante have honed in on a recipe for success by leveraging their passion of creating “delicious” Italian food. 

She said she was there Thursday to oversee delivery of a large pasta-making machine.

"Everything is there and everyone is working," she said.
