Fantastic food in a charming venue, served by passionate staff delivering high quality service. Can’t wait to go again.
Food, service and drinks were all excellent - couldn't ask for anything more!
The best pasta in Manchester and the best staff. Delicious
Excellent as it always it, food wine service atmosphere all top notch
Incredible service and lovely staff! Thoroughly enjoyed myself thanks to the staff! The food was AMAZING and the vegan options were also honestly perfect! I had the vegan starter to share which has vegan cheese and it was that nice I had to buy some more before I left!!! £5 for a ball of vegan cheese??? YES PLEASE! for main I had a mushroom ravioli which was to die for and they even gave me some vegan Parmesan to place on top!! Then for dessert I had a chocolate ravioli! I enjoyed my boyfriends dessert more which was on the specials board- it was apple and walnut tart with chocolate drizzle to pour on the side! Honestly a lovely meal and will 100% be back, you should definitely go, if you're a vegan or not, you have just as many options both ways! The only little bad thing I had to say was it was quite chilly but that's just being picky!
This restaurant deserves serious respect. The quality of the food is excellent. I spent a few days in Manchester eating at various excellent restaurants but The Pasta Factory was far and away the best. I would visit Manchester again just to go back to this restaurant. This definitely is a must visit restaurant before you die type restaurant.
We went here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday after hearing great reviews of this place. The service was excellent, the waiters were very friendly and came over a few times asking if we wanted another drink or if everything was alright. We were expecting a bit more of a cosy setting, but it just felt more like a place where you can drink a coffee and have some cake. The main meals were excellent, the sauces were creamy and the flavours worked all together. Unfortunately the starters and desserts were quite disappointing. I had the three crostini, and one of them was ok, but the other two were just bland. The desserts (chocolate pasta) were very tiny and the sauce was hard to scoop up from the flat plate. The Italian cola was very nice as a drink, and boyfriend's cider was very tasteful. We thought it was a bit overpriced. If the starters and desserts had been good it would've been a different story.
I had heard very good things about The Pasta Factory before visiting, so I was prepared to enjoy myself. The meal I had exceeded my expectations, everything I heard was true. This place is an absolute gem. Fantastic from top to bottom. Please eat here, you will not regret it.
Booked this restaurant for lunch time for my friends birthday. The waiter was extremely nice. Very polite and friendly. Felt very personal and welcomed. Following that, the food was amazing. We had the vegan cheese and crackers starter which was so tasty. I’m not vegan but this was very well put together with caramelised onions and chilli jam. Definitely try it. Following starters we ordered a vegan pasta and a slow cooked beef ragu pasta. Both so authentic tasting. Really delicious food and extremely friendly staff/chefs. Definitely try it!
Amazing as always! The food here is unlike anything else you will find in Manchester - it tastes amazing and is reasonably priced, and feels genuinely authentic every time. Fabio, our server, is super friendly and almost feels like a friend at this point, as he is so welcoming and bubbly every time we see him - we feel properly invited in. Honestly, if you are looking for your new favourite restaurant, this is the place to eat; amazing food, fantastic atmosphere and phenomenal service.
