Very good restaurant, tho extremely slow! Expect long wait between dishes

Had dinner at Pasta Bar, we had read about it and made a reservation in advance to avoid disappointments. It's a little restaurant, with no more than 8 tables inside and then seating available outside. It's ran by an Italian couple which were very nice at start but couldn't really care much... read more

We ate here on our first night of a city break back in February. Taken a while to review as I lost access to my Tripadvisor account. Anyway, better late than never! Put simply, this is the best Italian restaurant I have ever eaten at. Run by a lovely Italian couple, it is quite small and easily missed. The interior... More

Having heard so much about this place we finally managed to secure a booking for a weekday evening. Food selection was mainly pasta hence the name Pasta Bar!,and the food came along tasting very good. Had no complaints and enjoyed every bit of it.

I was in Cologne for work and I was looking for a nice restaurant. This one was without any doubt one of the best Italian restaurant I tried abroad. I had the scialatielli with seafood and my husband had some gnocchi with aubergine and salsiccia. I am Italian and he knows Italian kitchen very well - we were absolutely amazed... More

Due to the high summer temperatures we experienced on our visit to Köln, we enjoyed our meal on the sidewalk. The traffic on Barbarossa Square can only be described as extremely busy and very noisy, but the quality of the food and the friendliness of the service made up for the environmental challenges. We ordered the surprise menu and were... More

What a lovely little place this is. It's small and cozy, and i sugget you reserve because it's easily fully booked, but after tasting the food i have to say: well worth it. The bruschetta is well prepped with olive oil. The pastas are hand made and absolutely fabulous, i literally finished mine in 10 minutes! Nice variety on the... More

When a restaurant is number one on tripadvisor, you set your expectations very high! This restaurant rose to the occasion! We were seated on the terrace and took a mixed plate for two and a glas of prosecco to start with. The cheeses and meat were delicious, a true delight for the palate! As a main course I took homemade... More

We had a dinner for two at Pasta Bar, attracted by the amount of excellent reviews. The place seems quite popular, it might be a good idea to book a table in advance, we took the last one. Staff is very friendly, provides advice and creates a good atmosphere. We ordered some mixed starters - those were very good -... More
