Report: Tucci & Fresta's to Convert into Pasta House Co.


  • Ian Froeb

Kim Tucci and Joe Fresta will convert Tucci & Fresta's Trattoria & Bar (15 North Central Avenue, Clayton; 314-725-6588) into a location of their Pasta House Co., according to a report in the St. Louis Business Journal.

Tucci & Fresta's opened last September in the space previously occupied by Portabella, serving a much more upscale Italian menu than the Pasta House Co.

Gut Check has had a call into the corporate office of the Pasta House Co. since this morning for confirmation and additional details. No word yet on exactly when the change will take place, though Gut Check has heard unconfirmed reports that it could happen as soon as next week.
