After spending a few weeks in Madeira escaping the harsh UK winter we felt in need of a change from the widely offered Madeiran menus and so searched out La Pasta for some Italian fayre.
We were not disappointed, La Pasta is hidden away but it sits in a small sun filled square where a leisurely lunch in the sun can be fully enjoyed. The menus are on a blackboard inside but the young waiter explained the range of food available and after some deliberation my wife and I both went for pizza. Both pizzas were really good with excellent thin crusty bases, just like they should be.
Service was excellent, and we will be back to try out the pasta dishes.

Nice to find a cosy restaurant in central Funchal, and have the opportunity to talk matters over BEFORE being approached by the staff.

The man who then greeted us and showed us the cardboard with the pastas, sauces and soups of the day turned out to be the Austrian owner.

Started out with a tomato and mozzarella antipasti with some really tasteful olive oil.
After that my better half got (some slightly overcooked) tagliatelle with a basic tomato sauce whereas I had a well made plate of ravioli.
Paid less than 50,- € including 4 bottles of water and a well tempered Chianti. I'd call that a good deal.

If you're in Italian mood definitely worth a visit.

Super restaurant tucked away, but worth looking for, no menus choices are written in Portuguese on a blackboard inside but don't be put off as everything is explained very well by friendly staff easiest thing to do is explain what you like (creamy, spicy, meaty,) and they will make to suit your tastes, the food was delicious and 2 starters & 2 mains with drinks came to 24 € can't get better than that, we will definitely be back.

Fancied an Italian and liked the idea of mix and match pasta/suaces at this place. My wife had a mushroom pesto which she enjoyed (and liked the option of half portions). I went for a ravioli with an olive oil/garlic sauce but it was far too salty (a problem at other Madeira places though). THe desserts were nothing special. So overall a little disappointed, but it was good value if not very large portions.

We have visited La Pasta twice in the last week and had a lovely lunch. We ordered Pizza of the day and it was really nice. We first visited La Pasta 2 years ago and the standards have been increased if anything. Really nice little Italian tucked away from the hustle of Funchal.
