Plano's Legacy Hall food hall has a new concept ready to roll and it's Italian. Called The Italian Job, it's a pasta restaurant with eight pasta options, including one alternative pasta that's made from zucchini noodles.

According to a release, the Italian Job will open on Friday, November 1.

Although it's a fast-casual concpet, it will have an artisanal vibe with fresh pasta made in-house daily using high quality ingredients.

Executive chef is Clifford Barratt, who was born and trained in South Africa and has spent more than a decade building a portfolio of award-winning concepts including restaurant, retail, and market concept, Old Town Italy in Pretoria, South Africa.

Pastas include spaghetti, casarecce, tagliatelle, and the above-mentioned health-conscious zucchini noodles.

Menu highlights include: Renzo’s Pasta– Casarecce, Mamma’s Red Sauce, Bacon, Bell Peppers, Chili, Cream; Cacio e Pepe– Spaghetti, Pecorino, Parmesan, Black Pepper; Pasta Alla Scorglio– Tagliatelle, Shrimp, Rosa Tomatoes, Lemon, Basil, Chili, Extra Virgin Olive Oil; Tagliatelle Bolognese– Tagliatelle, Beef Bolognese Ragù.

Rounding out the menu are two Italian classics: Melanzane alla Parmigiana– Eggplant Bake, Mamma’s Red Sauce, Parmesan, and The Meatball Bowl– perfect for sharing and served with Focaccia Bread and a choice between Mamma’s Red Sauce or Dijon Sauce.

All 9 entrees are priced at under $10.

Chef Barratt says he's thrilled to test the concept at Legacy Hall. "Our chefs strive to deliver high-quality, fresh pasta at a grab-and-go pace perfect for a Food Hall atmosphere," he says.
