“Good fresh pasta's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Finally a restaurant with quality pastas! How it should be!
Coming from an Italian family I have a very critical view and I can testify this is a pretty good representative for Italian pasta.
The service is pretty slow, but friendly.
I would definitely come here again.

“Tasty but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013

I had a yummy prawn fettucine pasta. It was quite tasty but nothing special. In particular the quartered tomatoes throughout the dish that were barely cooked let it down. I ate with three friends and in particular one friend found the spaghetti puttanesca not very tasty. Good service but not a great meal.

“Relaxed Italian with great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013

A small restaurant, relaxed friendly service, great pastas what more do you need? Do not hesitate to use the take out. Wonderful pasta sauces, great oven dishes - do try the veggie lasagna - and great fresh pasta. Some good Italian wines too. So for a quick lunch, a laid back dinner or a great food for at home, you can't go wrong at Il Pastaio.

“Pasta Paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2013 via mobile

We dined here as the snow lay on the ground outside. We all agreed that the food served to us was excellent. Some members of the group struggled to finish the abundance of pasta served with the main course. Two Italians in our party gave it a definite thumbs up. The secret weapon in their arsenal of desserts was the chocolate mousse...simply exquisite!

“Excellent freshly made pasta!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

A great place to enjoy freshly made pasta. Appetizers were also excellent. And the house wine, made with organic grapes was surprisingly good.
