We both ordered gnocchi and shared the chocolate orange ravioli dessert, both were lovely. Bellini’s were very good and my bf enjoyed the Italian cola. Staff were really friendly although the service was slow.

Service all be it slowish was attentive and whilst some will not like it we were actually interested in hearing from our friendly waiter all about the regions of Italy our menu selections came from.

The food however left us undecided, the food is freshly prepared hence the slowish service and is absolutely full of flavour but we found our meals (venison ragu and mushroom/truffle ravioli) very rich and hard work to finish in spite of the not so big portions.

May pop in again if in the area to give it another go but no strong desire to rush back.

We visited Pasta Factory on a mid-week evening and were wowed from start to finish. We were seated right away and given a brief history of the place and the vision that the restaurant is trying to create and deliver. As vegans we were chuffed to be asked whether we had dietary requirements - no awkward asking for a separate menu. There were plenty of choices for us, including a gorgeous crumble for dessert. The triangoli di funghi was a real hit, with vegan cheese to boot! The waitress who served us was super attentive and even made sure we got to the cinema on time since we'd enjoyed three courses and time had flown. An all-round wonderful experience. Will be back in the near future for sure.

On Friday evening, me and my boyfriend had booked in for a table, I had no expectations as I hadn’t heard of the place before. On arrival, we were given a warm hello from everyone, once seated the waiter came over to not only explain the menu to us but to also give us some background to where they were from and the ideas behind the pasta factory. We ordered mushroom pasta and venison ragu with the recommended wine to go with the venison. The recommendation on the Wine was perfect and when delivered, the waiters knowledge was brilliant. The food was lovely and tasty, I’d recommend the olive bread to start!
Very rare I leave reviews but this was great wine, great food and above all the best service I have received in a long time! They made us feel welcome, clearly new their product and sold it with excitement and love!

Visited at 5pm on a Friday night with a pram and they were very accommodating. We had truffle triangoli and salmon squid ink ravioli for out mains which were delicious but the best part of the meal was the chocolate ravioli dessert with amaretti filling and orange cream sauce - divine!
