Now Open: Amano Pasta


TORONTO — Amano Pasta has launched at Toronto’s Union Station, becoming the station’s first full-service restaurant.

Located in the heart of Union Station’s revitalization, Amano Pasta offers guests and commuters a front-row seat to witness the art of pasta making, thanks to an open kitchen, visible through a window facing the high-traffic corridor of the station.

The 55-seat interior — created by DesignAgency — features a simple and refined esthetic inspired by timeless Italian bakeries and pasta factories, but with a modern and minimal twist. The decor features white tiles, Carrera marble counters, communal dining tables and a custom-designed rack for hanging pasta.

The restaurant focuses on Italian-Canadian cuisine and will offer breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks daily. It also features a marketplace counter, providing customers with the opportunity to replicate dishes at home, and a modern Italian espresso bar offering freshly made grab-and-go pastries and sandwiches.

Amano’s pasta-focused menu features dishes such as stracciatella cheese with olive oil and cracked black pepper ($6); farfalle with arugula pesto, roasted walnuts and parmesan ($13); campanelle with dungeness crab, béchamel and chives ($18); and panna cotta with lemon curd and almond butter crumble ($7).

Amano is the latest restaurant from the trio behind Union Chicken — Adam Teolis, chef Michael Angeloni and Yannick Bigourdan. The team is set to open the flagship location of Union Chicken later this month, next door to Amano.
