I had food poisoning after ordering a cream based pasta. The pasta was also very undercooked. The atmosphere was nice and it was great to see they cater for those who are gluten free. However, food hygiene is everything and being so unwell after eating...there was very disappointing.More

Alright, so listen up. I'm a big fan of Sri Lankan cuisine, but even I need a break from it sometimes....So, I found myself wandering into The Pasta Factory to try out something neww. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed. Now, I'm...not even a huge Italian food fan, but DANGGG, Pasta Factory changed my mind. Everything we ordered was just... wow. Seriously, mind-blowing stuff. I mean, I can't even remember the last time I had pasta that good. The flavors, the textures – it was like a party in my mouth. And let's not forget about the ambiance. Cozy vibes, The music idk whatever it was but it was so refreshing, the owner was suchh a sweet lady, soo much friendly faces – it was the perfect spot to kick back and enjoy some killer food. So yeah, Pasta Factory? Loved it. Can't wait to go back for round two. ❤️More

Thank you so much, I just found my new place to go and it’s even cheaper then the ones I use to go. Keep it up and keep the smiles !!More

I am not going to write an essay about Pasta Factory. I love Sri Lankan food. After a while you need a break from it. I am not even a huge Italian food fan. I live in a very Italian neighborhood in New York. I...get my share of Italian food time to time. But, Pasta Factory blew my mind with everything we ordered. LOVED IT.More

This is the place where I had the best pasta ever in my life. Their pastas are fresh and homemade with best ingredients. Show kitchen allowed us to enjoy how they prepare our order. Menu was full of options to serve all taste palates. We...ordered three drinks and all three was amazing. Starters and mains were absolutely delicious and all menu item that we enjoyed were worth for price. Portions were enough and we could not finish all what we ordered. Staff were super friendly and attentive. Owner Ms. Paola also was kind enough to have a chat with us and It was very interesting while we dining. We ordered two desserts as well one brownies' and one crepe, those were super tasty. Highly recommend this place and I will visit again for sure.More

Found this on trip advisor what a gem . It did not disappoint. Service was excellent. Brushetta was lovely and the pasta so nice . Big portions at a great price . Tucked down a side street with black doors to enter . It's BYOB...as well I forgot but they sell juice water so that was fine. I would recommend this place and think we will go back at the end of the week .More
