We stuck to a safe linguine vongole ($29++), but it fell flat. The portion was small, with only a handful of clams (and bearing in mind that the shells take up most of the plate space). The sauce was thin and starkly lacking the aroma of white wine and garlic. I don’t see myself coming back anytime soon, although their selection of pastas is quite wide. Might try some of their fusion flavours which sounded quite enticing!

Was pleased to find that Supply & Demand had curated a takeaway menu! Their aglio pollo e funghi ($10.90) fared much better, with diced chicken and a medley of mushrooms. Would have liked a stronger garlic and chilli flavour, but I appreciated the hint of brine!

Was pleased to find that Supply & Demand had curated a takeaway menu! Unfortunately, the pork ragu ($11.90) was a big disappointment. It tasted like regular bolognese, with none of the stewed meat that ‘ragu’ usually comprises. The root vegetables were merely a handful of frozen carrots mixed in haphazardly. I’d say to give this a miss, especially since it costs more than some of their mains!

My dad is not the kind to propose having cafe food, and definitely not one that requires driving out of the way to obtain! But he read about Crossings and was determined to support this catholic social enterprise. All mains have been discounted to $8.90 - my family ordered the soft shell crab pasta, barramundi, fish & chips and Franciscan burger :-)

This features linguine tossed in a truffle cream sauce ($14.90+). The sauce was thick and tasty, but lacked the distinctive aroma of truffle. The portion of beef served was also painfully small and rather chewy!

The linguine with crabmeat in pink sauce ($14.90+) was served al dente and coated evenly. Didn’t enjoy this much as I found the sauce a tad too sweet and lacking in garlic or spice! They have an option to top up for a weekday lunch set comprising soup, canned drink and dessert but I’d say to give it a miss.

The seafood aglio oglio ($21.90+) is probably my favourite of all their pastas! I didn’t find this as flavourful as that in other outlets, but the seafood is fresh and succulent. Love the generous hand of chilli and garlic!

The pasta with mushrooms in cream sauce ($20.90+) is nothing to shout about. While of a good consistency, we found the sauce a little lacking in flavour - perhaps from the lack of meat components? Sprinkled a good portion of cheese on to boost its flavour! Fusilli was al dente and and there was a variety of mushrooms. Probably wouldn’t return for this specifically or pay full price - we scored this with Shopback’s 1 for 1!

I didn’t expect much of their pastas and was rather apprehensive given the high price point, but this proved to be the star of our meal! The seafood aglio oglio ($20.90+) comprises angel hair pasta tossed in a generous amount of olive oil, garlic and chilli. There was sufficient variety of seafood - mussels, squid, prawns; and all were astoundingly fresh!

Thankfully, their crab meat pasta ($24++) is still enjoyable! The tomato sauce is tangy and spicy, mixed with slivers of crab meat. Also appreciate the pine nuts sprinkled on top!

A tad unconventional, the Tonarellj Nero ($28++) features thin pasta infused with squid ink - it had a creamy consistency and slight brininess. It complemented the fresh crab meat very well and speaks volumes about the thought behind each dish! The spicy crumb and use of fresh chilli gave it a pleasant spicy kick. A very enjoyable, unique pasta!

Gambas Aglio Oglio ($19++) is a staple on most menus - linguine tossed in olive oil and seasoned with garlic. Found the pasta a little undercooked, and the spiciness lacking. But the prawns were extremely fresh and sweet! Didn’t like that the burpple set enforces the order of a mocktail, which was expensive and a tad sweet, but there’s a large selection of mains!
