Lunch menu and pasta tasting at Nicli's Next Door in Gastown on March 26, 2015.

Now open for lunch service, Chef Josh Gale has made a basic prix fixe lunch menu of salad and pasta available for easy dining at Nicli's Next Door (conveniently next door to sister restaurant, Nicli Antica Pizzeria). The evolving menu is focused on authentic, rustic Italian flavours using fresh and seasonal ingredients with freshly made, in-house pastas.

Of the trio of choices, I had the signature pappardelle (with braised pork ragu and kale) paired with a tasty, simple salad of beets and greens.

The plate was small but substantial and quite filling and delicious in its rich, meaty flavours and overall taste. It certainly was the heartier, meaty option.

Alternatively, the spaghetti (with fennel sausage, Calabrian chili, and garlic cream sauce) is also available and delectable. For vegetarians, you have a tomato-basil sauce with your choice of pasta.

There's not much to say about the quality and satisfyingly simple prix fixe lunch menu. It does the trick and does it well. NND is full of delicious, authentically Italian pastas and dishes. Now you can enjoy them earlier in the day.
