The Spaghetti That Came In from the Cold
Touring Italy, working as a carpenter, Peter Robertson fell in love with Italian food. He later opened RP’s Pasta in Madison, manufacturing fresh pasta and sauces now sold refrigerated and frozen throughout the Midwest. After a decade on Willy Street, RP’s outgrew its small storefront well known for its gigantic rooftop fork trailing tendrils of spaghetti. Its new larger location just a few blocks away includes a restaurant—Fork & Spoon Café. Open for lunch Monday through Saturday and dinner Thursday through Saturday, the restaurant specializes in—no surprise—classic pasta dishes. But the menu also slips in some foccacia sandwiches, soup, salad and a delizioso roasted vegetable antipasto.
