Food was excellent, service very nice and gentile. Good selection of wines, we were surprise with Monogram 2010, authentic bulgarian wine. Even customers were nice in this restaurant, I want to thank you the ones next to our table they share the wine with us and helped to choose. My family want to come back.

Friendly staff. Small but well formed menu; mainly pasta (hence the name!) Cottage-y decor. Tasty desserts. Little choice of wine but nice. Midrange price

I had lunch at Pastorant that is perfectly well located in the heart of Sofia. The restaurant is perfectly well styled with a vintage look and you feel immediately the Italian family environment. I had salad and pasta, together with a good wine. Everything was perfect and the service very friendly. I can only recommend Pastorant to everybody who comes... More

The restaurant claims that it offers the best pasta in Sofia. I wouldn't agree, but I will recommend it pasta lovers, who look for comfortable, rather limited restaurant in the downtown with personal service. The past is very good, so you could hardly make a mistake visiting Pastorant.

Cozy small place, polite staff. Also the pasta was good but very pricy for bulgarians, the dessert didn't impress me at all, I ordered chocolate mouse with mascarpone, but It wasn't very good and it was pricy for what the restaurant offered. My opinion is that it's too expensive for what is served.

Loved the food - focus is on pasta, but their salads are great as well (we had the avocado salad and the roast beef salad). The decor is lovely - romantic, pretty pastel colors, quirky accents. They serve the same menu for lunch and dinner, and their website is in both english and bulgarian and provides information on both food... More

Basically a pleasant informal little restaurant with helpful service and good, wholesome food - obviously specialising in pasta related dishes.

I really love the interior of the Pastorant and also their food is of high quality and always fresh. But their staff is very much a hit or miss. I understand that some waiters don't speak English, no problem with that, but it still would not cost anything to smile and be somewhat proactive to guests (we always have Bulgarians... More

This is the second time we have been here and again it didn't disappoint. The food was tasty and well presented and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere in the restaurant was relaxed and everyone appeared to be having a great time. Reasonable choice of wines and my Bulgarian red was excellent for 30 Levs. Well worth... More
