It's a nice place. You can see their stock exposed everywhere (sauces, pastas, etc). Everything is fresh and you can see the chef in action. They have outside tables that is lovelly. Pizza and pasta are amazing. Raspberry lemonade is delicious.

I rarely write reviews. This quaint, charming restaurant has that magical combination that is very hard to find, so I felt obligated to write about it. Outstanding, flavorful dishes, outstanding service and a nice ambience, all delivered with a good value, gives Pasta Bar a full 5 stars in my view. I would put this restaurant up there with the...

Ate here recently while on a trip to Cologne. Picked this restaurant solely on Trip advisor reviews. Like others have said this place is very small and only has approx. 10 tables. Made reservations the day before and got in the following day at 8:30PM. Very easy to make reservations on line on their website and they were very prompt... More

Hand-made pasta, with real Italian flair. Excellent wine collection. Very romantic interior. And absolutely perfect service! The two ladies that were in charge, were so kind that they tried to distract our daughter's attention for a few minutes in order for us to finish our dinner in piece. Price-wise a bit above average, but then again its hand-made pasta, with... More

Good Italian pasta, even confirmed by our Italian friends:) the place is really small, ca. 10 tables, so you need to book in advance. We have booked 1 week prior our visit and got later time slot. Reservation was done electronically and via email - quite convenient. Pricy, with average price for pasta 16-18 eur, and no card payment, so... More

Found this little restaurant near the Dom and enjoyed everything there! Super friendly service, very helpful and really try their best to make you have a good time! Food was great too, little bit more special than what we usually get at Italian places, and great quality ingredients! This comes at a price though, but will definitely come back!

Pasta Bar Caruso is a small restaurant but the food is great! First off - DIRECTIONS! Located just off Barbarossa Platz (it is a couple of doors down from what looks like a neon lit tanning salon), it may be a little difficult to find - just look for tables outside and some umbrellas across the road from the Tram...

And you probably will need to unless you book. This beautiful little restaurant is run by a charming husband and wife team and their passion for the food they serve and the quality of their service is evident throughout. A true gem, very rare and we would strongly recommend - but book first or you will almost certainly need to... More

Visited Cologne last week and decided to go The Pasta Bar on Friday evening as recommended by trip advisors great review. Was not disappointed, the food was superb. Being run by a husband and wife team it definitely had the personal touch and the service was excellent, with great ambience. If you go to Cologne you must try this restaurant.
