Great atmosphere- with fresh pasta! The waitress explained the different pasta and what pasta would go with the chosen sauce. Would have been nice to have another meal there, we shall see if we can squeeze one last meal before we head back home! I...will highly recommend this place.More

Don’t come here if you want silver service. This is a relaxed laid back style of restaurant. Service was slow but the food was worth the wait! Make sure you arrive hungry and If you have a starter go for the small pasta main unless...you have a big appetite! The starter I chose - bruschetta with aubergine - was one of the best things I have tasted in a long time. Our pasta mains were good - tasty and plentiful ( although I was jealous of my husbands wild boar pasta that beat my choice of guacamole pasta hands down). The price was very reasonable given the size of portions plus 2 beers and 2 glasses of wine.More

Despite the somehow chaotic service and a quite noisy environment, we had a great evening thanks to absolutely spot-on pasta dishes.

Pastaus We were very looking forward to experience what this place had to offer. Service and ambience was great except we had a very long wait for the food only to be told that the bread finished after an hour waiting - we were only...given one of the two started we ordered. However the staff was very cordial and welcoming. The food is amazing, with plenty of choices of pastas and sauces - which are all a divine combination - it was hard to choose. Also a nice selection of wines too. I’m unsure about prices though as prices range from €9 to €16 for pastas dishes is, in my opinion, on the expensive side when nowadays such ingredients are very available everywhere. Having said that the food does live up to the experience and worth visiting. Keep it up and take care of the minimal details of each client/table.More

One of the best pasta in Malta. Service was ok. Can be improved. Good value for money as well taking into consideration that you're having fresh pasta.

The nicest pasta in all of Malta (no exaggeration, you will not regret it). A very tiny cafe with the largest queue to get into however, it is worth the wait! Awesome seating arrangements to be sat with locals and others. All types of fresh...handmade pasta with fresh traditional sauces. Definitely somewhere you must go and try!More

Loved being able to choose which pasta you want. Food very good, we ate here twice on our holiday. Gave it 4 out of 5 as service was incredibly slow on the night we went, it seemed like they didn't have enough staff. Went back...one lunch time and as it got busy could see the service start to deteoriate again. Don't let that put you off though, as food outweighs this. If you love fresh pasta then definitely one to go to when in Valletta.More

Casual dining in this pasta restaurant where you can pick your own type of pasta in the various dishes on the menu. Nice choice of wine & craft beers. We were lucky as we pitched up around 5PM on a Saturday night without a prior...reservation. €54 for 2 wines, 2 craft beers, water and 2 pasta dishes.More

Two friends and I visited Pastaus on the recommendation from a friend who lives in Malta. We were not dissapointed. The food was well cooked, delicious, and fantastic value. The inclusion of gluten-free pasta options was a huge bonus given that I am gluten intolerant....The restuarant was even kind enough to cook remove foods containing gluten out of dishes to broaden the chocies available to me. We had such a nice time on our first visit that we returned a few days later for lunch!More

Sorry for slow response. The restaurant is on Old Theatre Street. It's located in a 2 block area that is full of restaurants - if you are heading down the street towards the water it is on the right, a bit after Straight... More
