2009 Top 5 Cookbook by Chicagoans/Chicago Restaurateurs (Resto.NewCity.com 2009-12-31)
Pasta books are a dime a dozen but that's no reason to ignore this contribution from Quartino chef John Coletta, who acknowledges that pasta is one of the few things home cooks can make better than most restaurants. (Mike Sula Chicago Reader 2009-10-08)
Choletta and Ryan have included an abundance of recipes for many different kinds of pasta--fresh and dried, festive and every day. Most are easy to make and won't take much time to prepare, while others are more complex and time-consuming, suitable for special occasions. (Nancy Ross Ryan PMQ Pizza Magazine 2009-10-15)
This book by Quartino's chef is packed with enough knowledge, tip-heavy pasta recipes to keep an Italian grandmother busy for years. (David Tamarkin and Julia Kramer Time Out Chicago 2009-10-08)
[This] is an impressive collection of recipes, knowledge and advice from Coletta, who lets the pasta and ingredients speak for themselves at his River North restaurant. The book covers it all: rich, meaty dishes, filled pasta, new school salads, making pasta from scratch and pasta desserts. Coletta also includes a chapter on meatless pasta--after all, he notes, Italians have cooked this way for generations--and even one on using leftovers. (Janet Rausa Fuller Chicago Sun-Times 2009-11-04)
