Visiting Cologne on business we trawled Tripadvisor as usual for ideas. We live in Italy for three months of the year and love real Italian food. Pasta Bar did not disappoint us. Anna and Marcello are great hosts and present lovely fresh unpretentious food at a very reasonable price. If you are staying in Cologne and want a little bit... More

I have been to Cologne 5 different times over the years and this was my favorite meal. The Pasta Bar is a delightful gem tucked away with homemade pasta, great food and service. I had the Gnocchi and my wife had delicious pasta. We had their homemade Tiramisu for dessert and it was fantastic. The restaraunt is small with few... More

Initially unassuming, one would be forgiven for missing this place. The rustic Italian, and dare I say hipster, interior is contradicted by the modern, nuanced Italian fare of primarily homemade pasta. At one stage we gorged ourselves on a pistachio and pumpkin ravioli which far exceeded the expectations one develops from frequenting the usual Italian haunts that litter cities such... More

We were looking for a different restaurant in the neighborhood -- a steakhouse -- but couldn't locate it, decided to come in here. Very informal, some tables inside but most outside (full, so we sat inside). The menu was in German only -- but our waitress was more than happy to translate it, her English was fluent. We both ordered... More

We went there for dinner last weekend and it was amazing! The starters are simple, but good (however I thought the Bruscetta was not as good as it can get). My friend loved the rosmary potatoes. But the main courses: just wonderful. The spinach tortellini with gorgonzola sauce and pear were so good, but the pumpkin tortellini in a rich... More

I have researched for good Italian restaurants in Cologne area and finally decided to visit Pasta Bar with some friends and business associates. I strongly recommend this restaurant if you want some simple and good pasta dishes. Wine quality is fantastic. Service is superb!!!!

I have been there for a business dinner and I was impressed about the passion that this Italian couple put in their job. The location is casual and relax ... very nice the Italian pop music soundtracks. I had a mixed small salad and then a delicious pasta made with Paccheri, dried tomatoes, pinoli, anchovies sauce and zucchini ... very... More
