Tutta Pasta, one of those restaurants that always seems to have people in it even though nobody ever admits to going there, has been put on the market. The 3,000 square foot space, on Seventh between First and Garfield, is for rent for a negotiable rate that's "currently $45 PSF below market," according to a listing that Park Slope Stoop first spotted.
The no-frills red sauce joint has served standard Italian fare, heavy on the olive oil, cheese, and fried stuff, for well over a decade, and was apparently doing well enough that the owners opened a (now closed) second location in Hoboken and a pizza spot, Piccola Uva, across the street. While the restaurant is certainly a dependable standby for some, it's not exactly breaking new culinary ground, and you'd be hard-pressed to find many people surprised by the news.
With seating for 140 plus sidewalk seating, a full bar, and a liquor license, this is a prime spot for a deep-pocketed restaurateur who's looking to make their stamp in Park Slope. I could see Sarabeth's doing quite well in this spot.
