As The Pasta House in Fairhaven begins the process of rebranding itself as Bocca, plans for renovations to the legendary restaurant are in full gear.

How much will the interior look of the restaurant change?

If a Facebook post from the owner is any indication, the update will be pretty substantial.

Owner Mario Ribeiro put up an offer on his personal Facebook page early Wednesday: "Just in case one of my friends wants to open a restaurant," he wrote. "Take it all. 8k."

Ribeiro is offering all of the current Pasta House booths, chairs, tables and lighting fixtures for $8,000. He says the table tops need to be refinished and some of the booths may need to be reupholstered, but he tells us this is a steal for the right person.

"I spent $80,000 on these fixtures," Ribeiro said. "The reason I didn't keep a lot of it was because the turnaround time to refinish all of the tables and reupholster everything would be too long."

The restaurant's timeline to turn around the renovation is just under two weeks. The Pasta House dining room and bar will close on Sunday, but remain open for take-out.  The entire operation will shut down for the final week of September and reopen as Bocca on Oct. 1.

"I want to sell it all to one person," Ribeiro said of the offering. "If somebody's starting up a restaurant, there's a little bit of work involved for sure, but the right person will definitely be able to take advantage of this and save big money."
