From linguini to rice noodles, this mini-chain gives pasta a 21st-century spin.. In Short This high-concept chain boasts a sleek, modern decor, with hard lines and bright colors. Living up to the restaurant's tag line "Universal Pasta," noodles serve as the basis for most of the menu, and are surrounded by everything from Asian accouterments--cilantro, shrimp and bean sprouts in a spicy pad thai--to California-Italian nouveau, such as fried calamari, portabello mushrooms or hickory-smoked bacon.
Nice place, good location.
This spot povided an inexpensive meal in the heart of the Castro. I really enjoyed the firecracker pasta as well as the service. The interior is modern and casual. There is a nice selection of good food at reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend hitting up Fuzio before a night of dancing and drinking; or just drinking.
Great food for the price.
I love this place for a quick, cheap meal - not just the one in the Castro but any that I've been to - they all are consitent in their good food, okay decor & okay service. I can't seem to order anything else but the Firecracker Pork Pasta - so wonderfully spicy and tasty! I usually order a salad as well (gotta have something green) but they always fall short for me. The ambiance is okay, the service is okay and I've had better drinks but like I said, for the price I think it is great.
Good food for a chain.
Sure it's a chain owned by Pepsi, sure the decor is nothing special. But all that aside, this place isn't half-bad for a decent meal at a cheap price. Plus, this Castro location is fun for the crowd. The calamari is always good, and the rest of the pastas are fairly decent. Another thing you can count on are the nicely crispy and tasty panini sandwiches. Avoid the tasteless ceasar salad, and for some reason, not once have they made a decent cocktail. The bloody mary on weekends is particularly bad.
