yum!! yum!! yum!! is all I can say!
I would definitely recommend Pumpkin Cannelloni and I don't even like Pumpkin!
One of my favourite places!!
Once or twice I've caught the staff on a bad day, but I know not to take it personally!

Thanks for your review - great to hear that you're enjoying our meals. We will show our staff your comment about the occasional 'off day'. It's valuable feedback for them to know that their off days don't go unnoticed - hopefully you won't experience anymore of them!

Cheers The Pasta Merchant : )

The pasta is great, especially the hand made gnocchi. Love going there for a quick meal. Have trouble leaving without having an apple pie gelato - it's the best.

I have fussy eaters in my family and this was a definite winner AND cheap! There are so many delicious choices. Dessert is wonderful too.

My 2nd visit was much better than the 1st, previously buying take away Fettucine Marinara which had watery, bland sauce with the seafood. (perhaps it was thawed marinara mix ?). This time I chose the Pumpkin Ravioli, which was plump and delicious and the sauce was rich and tangy. Eating in is an option, take aways are offered cold or heated, and there is a selection of small cakes as well as gelato, drinks & coffee. I took my meal cold and heated it in the hotel microwave without a problem, appreciating the parmesan cheese included in a paper bag. Will definitely return on another visit to Launceston, as the fresh pasta is a much better alternative to other take aways.
