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

I went with 2 friends for dinner, we had an antipasto plate, a broccoli tortellini, an eggplant and tomato spaghetti and a pumpkin tortellini. Everything was delicious and fresh! Excellently presented and friendly service! Would happily go back! Loved the atmosphere of the restaurant, very homely and inviting! Definitely recommend you go!

I had dinner here last week and found it to be a really poor excuse for Italian food. I had tortellini with a squash type filling. The pasta was totally overcooked and the filling tasted like something out of a tin.The salad I had to go with it was not much better and did not taste fresh My partner's spaghetti... More

Small restaurant with excellent choice of homemade pastas. Ingredients are either environment-friendly grown in the Cologne area, or imported from Italy from selected farms. Delicious wines. Speedy delivery. Recommended. A pasta dish will cost you around 12 Euro; wine will cost around 7 ( but it;s worth it!) Homemade desserts: tiramisu or cassatina siciliana ( really, *really* sweet), for 4... More
