Great Italian food from a real Italian

Pasta Bar Caruso was certainly not a disappointment in a city where German food is the norm. My pasta alla marinara and my wife's ravioli were perfectly prepared. I am of Neapolitan descent , lived in Rome and Boston and my wife is from Brooklyn,NYC.. We know good food.. Don't miss it if you want... read more

Amazing service, fantastic food, and a great wine selection. Well worth a visit for a great meal. After starters, a main, and a couple of bottles of wine between the 3 of us, we couldn't stop talking about his place and the luck of finding this place. Certainly going to revisit.

Tiny and warm restaurant, a reservation must be made, the individual plates are about 8 Euros, very good food, handmade pasta, good service, pleasant decoration, Italian food. They don't accept international credit cards but have a cash machine close to the restaurant.

The food is very good and very frash. Very nice small place and the staff is very good. From out side it is look like a shop but it is very nice inside and the food is very very good. No Pizza in this restaurant.

We made a reservation for dinner at Pasta Bar after reading the positive reviews her on tripadvisor. And it definitely met the expectations.We arrived 30 minutes late due to some problems with the bahn but that was no problem. The restaurant is really small and had a very personal touch. The food is delicious and the overall atmosphere really chill.... More

I went here with my partner on April 27 2015. The restaurant is small and has a very intimate atmosphere. When we were there it had only just opened for the evening so it wasn't very busy yet. I liked the carved wooden tables and the wine bottles on wooden shelves all over the restaurant. The design wasn't "kitsch" like... More

Don't let their ranking fool you. They have bad food and make you wait over an hour between course. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!

I have been to this place for quite a few times and it never disappoints. My absolute favourite in Cologne. Reservation should be made, especially if you want to sit inside.

We had dinner in the restaurant as a couple. The overall atmosphere as well as the decoration is very nice and everything fits together very well. The service was good, nice wine suggestion, and we were warmly welcomed. The food was very good, best Italian food we've had in a long time. Overall, a recommendable experience. The only aspect that... More

A very warm welcome and amazing food. The restaurant is located in a front room and the kitchen is like in the corridor, so definitely book. We went on a Monday and it was full. A very enjoyable evening
