“I’m lucky to be able to spend Mother’s Day with my children in the restaurant David and I cultivated together and are looking forward to making all the moms feel loved on their special day,” Alenik said.
The late David Alenik spent 12 years working in the restaurant industry cooking for celebrities such as Steve Wynn and Frank Sinatra before opening Pasta Shop Ristorante & Art Gallery in 1989. The Pasta Shop‘s  pasta is made fresh in house and sold to various hotels and restaurants around the Las Vegas valley.

Ann Alenik’s artwork is displayed and sold on the restaurant’s walls. She also showcases her custom work at local and national art shows and galleries, has been featured on HGTV and has received recognition for her contemporary metalwork.
