From the creators of Sea Salt, Bird Bar, Slice & Soda, and Kali Bistro comes Aqua E Farina, a new Italian restaurant with not one, but two locations in Montreal and a particularly crowd-pleasing concept.

Aqua E Farina, which stands for water and flour in Italian, makes you the artist of your own meal masterpiece... or should we say "pasta-piece." Its menu is a palette of pasta, sauce, protein and topping options, giving you the creative freedom to build a personalized bowl of noodle goodness.

Gluten-free options are available, too — as are pre-set combinations in case you trust the chef more than yourself.

To drink, Aqua E Farina offers a selection of cocktails, wine and beer for you to pair with your meal.

For dessert, you can indulge in a handful of Italian classics, like tiramisu or cannolis.

Pasta fiends inspired by their meal creations can turn to Aqua E Farina's specialty grocery store to bring the carb-fueled fun home.

The store sells the pasta and sauces on the restaurant menu in addition to imported Italian products.

Aqua E Farina is now open in Old Montreal and Monkland Village. This summer, both locations have terrasses.

Buon appetito!
