Taglianno’s Pasta – the SURC’s Garden of Olives

I’m not sure if you knew this, but, Taglianno’s is actually really good. I always forget we have pasta in the SURC, but when I remember, it’s almost like discovering the ocean for the first time.

Big servings

Perhaps Taglianno’s best claim to fame is the generous serving size. For only $4.60, you can get a large plate of pasta with sauce, and for just $1.10 more, add some veggies to the mix. Adding meat ups the price to $8.20, but as a vegetarian I’ve never tried it. I have, however, heard it’s worth it.

For just $1.05 you can get a breadstick to go with dinner, and believe me, they’re legit. Or, size up a plate from the amazing salad bar right next door.


Big flavor

Just like a traditional pasta joint, Taglianno’s pan fries the sauce and noodles together into delicious medly. Unlike a boring a pasta restaurant, though, they do it right in front of your eyes!

Starting with garlic or oil, you have a choice of pasta noodles including: gluten-free, whole grain, or regular.

Don’t forget the most important part, the sauce! I like to think of myself as a self-proclaimed sauce guru (I’m really good at heating up Ragu I’m told) and take it from me, Taglianno’s pesto sauce is ungodly. The rest of the mix are delicious on their own right, but the pesto is out of this world – definitely recommend.


On top of that, you can add a number of protein options ranging from the classics like meatballs and sausage, to the fancy kind of chicken and shrimp. And don’t forget the veggies.

Big personalities

In-between firing up confectionary art for students, the staff at Taglianno’s like to create another kind of….art. Meet this unicorn.


I’m told it was made from noodles. And don’t worry, no real unicorns were harmed in the making.


If you’re a student looking for some grub, be sure to check out Taglianno’s. I can guarantee you’ll enjoy it. And if you’re feeling brave, ask to try the unicorn pasta.

  1. Hey! We made another sculpture of a unicorn! This time using duct tape and popsicle sticks! Since you were oh so interested earlier this quarter in our unicorn artistry over in pasta I thought I would let you know! Sadly it was not edible but it was certainly fun to craft!
