What an incredible experience of proper local Italian cuisine. Never had such an incredible bowl of gnocchi before, everything was impeccable. Thank you Leopaldo and team for such an authentic experience!

Googled this place as a nearest place to eat food as my son was hungry and i didnt have time to look around for a restaurant. It was quite small but cute place with friendly owner and helping staff. My son got custom made pasta...alfredo according to some food restriction. We absolutely enjoyed the food and the service!More

Pasta Chef is a really good lunch spot to enjoy a classic Italian Pasta. The place itself is small with very limited seating. However, there are a variety of pasta-based options, including Lasagne. If you're a vegetarian, there will be plenty of options for you....It is slightly on the upper end of prices you’d expect to pay at a lunch place, but I guess this is to be expected considering its famous. I went for the Tomato pasta which very simple but effective, with a load of flavour, a lot of which coming from the sauce which was so fresh and unique.More

Went to eat there for a quick bite in the afternoon and found that I went back each day for the entirety of our stay in Roma. Despite all the beautiful things to eat in the city, we couldn’t resist the uniqueness of pasta chef....We tried 5 different pastas over the duration of our trip and each was better than the last, I even found myself ordering their original recipe carbonara (which they will warn you is very salty but believe me it’s just right) twice!! Would 100% go again and would recommend for anyone to try this one of a kind restaurant.More

I came here 4 years ago in 2016 and I promised myself I will return. Came back in 2020 and it was still amazing as I remember! I can’t recommend this place enough, literally the best Italian in the world. The lasagna and tagliatelle is...to die for! Very good prices and staff are very hospitableMore

Cheep and cheerful. Really tasty pasta and great gluten free for coeliacs too as every dish (except lasagne) can be gluten free. Great for a quick lunch.

Pasta chef was quite local for us and we actually chose it based on TripAdvisor reviews and the fact that it was vegan friendly. Suffice to say we were not disappointed at all!! This was easily one of the best pasta experiences we had in...Italy, all homemade dishes, cooked al dente, and the flavour was mouth watering. There were about 9 pasta dishes to choose from as well as a few specials and and simple salads. We chose the tagliolini gamberi e pomodorini and the fettuccine ai porcini as well as a verde salad to share. Paolo’s service was simply unforgettable, he was warm, welcoming and accommodating - obviously wanting to go above and beyond to keep us happy. The pasta was so great we ended up coming back as soon as they opened on the day we left to get another taste! We also loved the atmosphere and bar-style of the venue, where you place your order at the counter, wait for your number to be called and take a seat on a bar stool. Everything was served on biodegradable dishes, which was really refreshing after all the plastic water bottles we had been using in the peak of summer! We can’t wait to come back!!!More

We had a delicious experience here. We had Ravioli and Ragu Bologn and they were both very delicious. The prices were also really okay. It's a small place filled with tastes ;)

Their vegetable lasagna is the best I've ever eaten, I even went back the next night for more. After a long day of walking around with no food it hit the spot perfectly and was 100% satisfying.

There is a wide variety of drinks on site but I can not guarantee for their brand or type or quality. When we visit the place, I think we drank water / bottled.
