New pasta bar in Main Dining is molto delizioso

Oodles of noodles fill the new station in Main Dining called Cibo dal Vivo.
Offering over 200 different combinations, they have a step-by-step way to build your own pasta bowl.
This new lunch alternative for students on the go opened Feb. 27 and has served 100 students since its first day.
The menu is mindful of diet choices, ensuring that students can find something they like at this lunch spot.
“We wanted to give more options to our vegan students and still be an option that all students can enjoy,” Scott Smith, General Manager for Chartwells, said.
If students are not sure what to get, Cibo dal Vivo provides a convenient guide to help them satisfy their lunch cravings.
“There are endless possibilities,” Smith said. “The bowls are made for you and by you in just about two minutes per person.”
The cook sauteés all of the hand-chosen ingredients and cooks it in plain sight – which makes for one fast and fresh meal.
Students have given the pasta bar rave reviews, no matter what ingredients they’d chosen.
“I love the fact that I have so many choices and not much of a limit to them,” Vanessa Aguilera (senior, English) said.
Their program “Train Like a Warrior” includes healthier options like the Veggie Pasta Combo 1 & 2 or the Chicken Pasta Combo. Both include a small carry-out salad and a bottle of water. Their combos range from $5.29 to $5.99, while bowls cost anywhere from $2.99 to $4.99.
“We are still working on more ideas,” Taylor Waldon, Marketing Manager for Chartwells, said.
“Hearing what the students want is what we believe will make it even better.”
Comment cards are left around Main Dining so that students can say just what they like or don’t like – or what they’d like to see more of.
They have listened and heard, so look out for more fun, exciting and interesting food additions soon to come.
“Our students’ opinions are always welcome,” Smith said.
“All the food options are chosen from the suggestions and favorites of our students.”
