A date night made perfect at Maccheroni Republic👞👠

Unpopular opinion: I’ve never really been a big pasta fan because I thought that it’s not worth it to pay for food you can make at home, like pasta, brunch etc. But this restaurant changed my mind! My boyfriend and I decided to go out for a cute date on a random Friday so I decided to give this place a try. I was immediately intrigued when I got there: their outdoor environment was so lovely: cute plantation, romantic string lights and inviting patio. The wait was more than an hour but we still decided to stay. All their pastas were handmade: I got their shrimp scampi, which was so flavorful and rich - hands down one of the best shrimp scampi dishes I’ve ever had. My boyfriend got their signature dish Bianchi and Neri: black and white pasta with shrimp, mushroom, and roasted pancetta in a rich creamy sauce. To pair with the pasta, we also got an entire bottle of white wine. The crispy, sweet and refreshing wine cuts the creamy texture of Bianchi and Neri so well. We ate, drank, chatted and laughed for the entire dinner. The service was also superb: our waiter was friendly and welcoming - he gave us great recommendations for pasta and wine. Overall, a solid spot for date nights! 🥂🥂
