Arisun Express and Azoto, World Square

Cre8 Pasta and Tapas Bar, World Square

Gourmet pasta at a restaurant for under $15 in Sydney sounds like a fanciful notion – but the newly launched Cre8 Pasta and Tapas Bar on the lower ground floor of World Square has made it a reality, allowing its customers to select from their 10 pasta type options (including 4 different types of ravioli) and pair the pasta with a sauce of their choice.
