“Great Italian in Amsterdam Who Knew?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We were really hungry leaving the flower market and noticed this place across the street. We split a salad, pasta dish and foccacia, all of which were perfectly seasoned and surprisingly light. Service was pleasant and attentive and the price was very reasonable for the amount of food.

“Delicious pasta, nice atmosphere, great customer care!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Given that Pasta Factory is situated in a very touristic place of Amsterdam (and I tend to think that the touristic places around here don't necessarily serve the greatest food..), it took a while until we tried out the place. We were delighted by the quick service, tasty food and good customer service! We've been more than 5 times so far and the food and customer service has been consistently awesome.

If you'd like to warm up with a good soup I'm recommending the chicken soup (best soup I had lately!), and if you're into pastas you should definitely try out (among others) the tagliatelle with mushrooms & cream sauce!

One of my favorite lunch destinations in Amsterdam!

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Love this restaurant! We looked for this on trip advisor whilst on a search for Italian food during a recent trip to Amsterdam - a very good find! Very close to our hotel in Dam Square and easy to find.
The restaurant was very clean and inviting, with an open kitchen so you can both see and smell the food being prepared. Very friendly service from the waiter that served us.
My dad and I both had the Bruschetta Di Capra (Bruschetta with tomatoes, olives and goats cheese) - fantastic with a generous amount of goats cheese! A big portion - ideal to share.
To follow we both had the Tagliatelle salmon, which again, was very generous with salmon!
Good prices - both meals plus a coke and a hoegaarden - cost 30 euros.
Recommend it!

“Fast & tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Not an easy piece of pie to find=) Actually I've just found my hungry self at the front of this lovely place. Nice choice of pasta and quick enough service makes this place perfect choice for a midday tourist.

“Perfect pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Arrived our hotel and searched locally for something good and fresh, we found the pasta factory, it was neat, tidy, clean and fresh in appearance, the food was no different? Lots of lovely spinich with my filled pasta whist my lady friend had the pasta with garlic and wine. Wow! The food was excellent and although the amount of garlic in the white wine pasta was at vampire killing level, very much enjoyed by both parties... would return again
