Building is very nice, food very fresh, and staff are very attentive (perhaps too attentive- I'd rather the water jug be left on the table than someone come right up behind me whilst I'm trying to eat). Menu was a bit tricky to understand at...More

The food is delicious and the menu is very different and original (took us a while to figure out). But it isn't cheap prices for pasta mains start at around 41k and that's just for a sauce. For extras like cheese or bacon/veg etc is...More

Dear Loopyluc, Thank you for rating our restaurant. We are extremely sorry to hear that 4,80 USD for homemade pasta, a free appetizer, free water, free wifi, air conditioning, good service and the assurance that you will not get sick are still too much for...More

Taglitalle carbonara is tasty. I like the fresh pasta here. The price is good. It is the same as the price of local food in a restaurant.

The building was cool. I tried something different, the Lao sausage pasta, I just didn't like the actual sausage itself. But the pasta and sauce were very good. My partner was not so impressed by her dish either, but the starters were really good and...More

We ordered the pink diva and carbonara with extra cheese. They were generous with the cheese. But the portion was not that much. But if you want to feel full you have to get the gnocchi pasta.

Description
The State of PastaTM is built on a family tradition that stretches back over four generations. Originally from a small village in the Verona countryside in northern Italy, Matthias and Patrick's earliest culinary memories are of the unforgettable pasta made by their Nonna, who began cooking at sunrise to allow the pasta to dry for several hours in the kitchen. A pasta dish at The State of PastaTM has become a unique fusion that combines recipes from another time with 21st century cuisine. It is an alliance between the best flavours from Europe and those of the Far East. A guarantee of fast service with no compromise on quality. Where both cooks and guests share a common purpose. A marriage of contemporary style with traditional food. A restaurant where everyone can enjoy their pasta in a completely new way. As Nonna put it so well: "Mangia pasta che ti fa bene “(Eat pasta, it's good for you).
