The pasta is excellent, and we always order from this place. I am writing this review however to say something about the new Shrimp dish (Gamberi Bianchi): Even though the past and sauc is good, I was dissapointed to see it only had 7 mini-shrimps...inside it (I counted) and for the increase in price up to 39 lei that felt as a rip-off. People expect proper shrimps if you advertise a shrimp in the picture.More

Last night I've just got off from work and i was in a hurry to look for a place to take dinner with my girlfriend. I asked her what she wanted to eat and she said pasta. Fine, search pasta on trip advisor and take...the closest location. It happend that this place was the very closest to me, I said fine let's give it a try. I got there all I can say is that everything turned out to be a great experience. The chef that takes care of the restaurant is very communicative oppen to any suggestions and she mades one of the greatest pasta I ever eat. When I tasted the bruschetta with mushrooms which was offered by the chef was delicious. It made me to forget about the hard day that i had at work. Past was like a rainbow of tastes, definitely the best in Cluj so far. The desert was more than that. The atmosfer was on my taste with some lovely French music. Overall is must try experience 👌😁More

We walked to this restaurant from the Hampton Inn because we wanted pasta and it was close. We were very pleasantly surprised at how delicious everything was. The chef/owner makes everything homemade, from her sauces to her meatballs, pasta, and even desserts. The price was...reasonable too. Give it a try, you won’t be sorry.More

My wife and I visited on a Monday evening after a day of driving and touring around Cluj. Pasta Nostra is a charming restaurant with everything homemade. The owner is delightful and made us feel very welcome. We had two different dishes (bolognese and piselli)...and tiramisu for desert. Highly recommend for anyone visiting Cluj for pleasure or business.More

This is a family owned restaurant, like any Italian pasta eatery should be. The food is absolutely delicious, from the bruschette, to the pasta, to the home-made Tiramisu. Everything is freshly made to order, and the ingredients they use are of the best quality -...you can really taste this! Not to mention the passion with which the chef cooks - they have an open kitchen, so you can watch your delicious pasta being made. The staff is so friendly and helpful, you immediately feel welcome as you walk through the door. I highly recommend Pasta Nostra! Also make sure you ring the bell at the entrance if you liked your food (it's such a cool idea)!More

The atmosphere is always warm, the host is always kind, and the food is always delicious. Excellent place to eat for lunch. I recommend the atypical spaghetti bolognese, with small meatballs in it. Must be the best in town.
