The 7 Best Pasta Places In Richmond, VA
Meredith Scroggin

This vegetarian and carb-loving girl is absolutely the biggest fan of pasta. I could marry a bowl of fettucine alfredo, even as basic and normal as that dish is. But I am thoroughly celebrating National Pasta Day and thinking back on some of my favorite places to get pasta in Richmond, Virginia.

8. Portico

Though I've never been myself, I've only ever heard great things about Portico, and it's in the cutest location!

7. Azzurro

Some have voted this the best Italian in Richmond and I feel like it's next on my list of places to try.

6. Maggiano's

Sure, it's a chain, but sure, it's incredibly delicious.

5. Bottoms Up

Though Bottoms Up is mostly known for its incredible pizza, their pasta options are quite phenomenal as well. Customize it in the same way you could customize your pizza!

4. Bacchus

Located in The Fan District, Bacchus brings good vibes and good food.

3. The Continental

The Continental is probably my favorite restaurant in Richmond, and though they're not known for their pasta dishes, their pasta is phenomenal. It brings me so much happiness (see first photo).

2. Graffiato

Graffiato is actually one of the coolest restaurants in Richmond. Located downtown, this restaurant serves family-style, meaning it's best to order several small dishes and then share with the whole table. It's the best of both worlds to get to try a little bit of everything, and their gnocchi is AMAZING.

1. Bombolini

If you've never been to Bombolini, you're living the real Richmond life. Bombolini is easily the best pasta I've ever had in my entire life. One of the best parts about it is that it's mostly takeout, which means you don't have to enjoy it in a fancy restaurant. Grab one of their many inexpensive dishes and head home to carb load in your pajamas.

Go and enjoy your carbs, friends, and have a blast.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
