Now you can travel to Italy without ever leaving CityPlace. 

Italy Fast Quality Food, that is. 

The former Mama Che Buono (700 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach; 561-655-1241) has upped the ante on its original panini, gelato, and coffee drinks menu, adding mix-and-match pastas and sauces and a wide variety of imported Italian chocolates as well as a small Italian market that dispenses everything from imported artisan pastas and rustic breads baked in-house daily to jarred sauces, condiments, jams, and wines. 

The pasta menu offers ten pastas, from penne to pappardelle, that can be mated to seven sauces -- tomato-basil, quattro formaggi, arrabbiata, pesto, and more. There's also a quartet of stuffed pastas to complement the selection of panini, salads, cold apps, and panzerotto. Pasta prices range from $10 to $13; panini and salads are all under $10.

A complete redo of the interior added table service seating, while the addition of outdoor seating increased total capacity to 30. It's just the beginning too, as locations are planned for Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach and Lincoln Road in SoBe.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
