fantastic place with awesome interior, very homely. the food was amazing at its price, handmade egg pasta? customization? yes please! we stayed for two hours on a crowded Saturday night but was never asked to rush or leave. we ordered dessert after a while and it was equally fantastic. sorry for the incoherent review lol its just so much on my mind.
No frills Italian cozy place. No taxes and self service for the food. Service was not too bad and food portions were decent, the homemade pasta was something different. Try the pork sausage!
food was good, ingredients were fresh and flavourful!! the handmade pasta was slightly clumpy though, probably due to the thin and smooth nature of it! nonetheless it was good :) + the tiramisu was rly pillowy soft!! staff was also friendly and helpful!
Pasta was affordable and tasty. I ate cream sauce penne. Sauce was creamy and cheesy yet not too overpowering. My friends ate handmade pasta and their reviews were good too. Pasta was soft yet chewy. Restaurant ambience was also great. Quiet and clean.
It’s pretty average. Better than most But nothing to write home about. The place is a little small so it feels quite claustrophobic at full house, constantly making way for people trying to order or grab utensils or moving staff. Staff was super friendly and helpful, they were kind enough to point out if certain pasta combos don’t work well. Food was average. I had the mixed seafood fettucine. The staff recommended it over parpadelle cause she mentioned it will clump parpadelle. Well it didn’t matter cause ny fettuccine was undercooked and I had hard clumps of pasta anyway. If you’re going to spend around that price for pasta you might as well eat at Pastaria Abate, or top up a little more and enjoy Ah Bongs. If you want to spend lesser, head to Old Airport’s pasta stall for tasty generous cheap pasta.
The staff is friendly and approachable.. I like the concept that it is a self-service Café.. tried the chicken and avocado tagliatelle.. the pasta is super thin and chewy.. It would be good if the sauce is a little bit more as the pasta sticks together and seems like “western version dry mee pok”.. Tried the martini grilled pork as well. The martini sauce is strong and not too overwhelming. It covers up the “pork smell” and yet can taste the “juiciness”.. Tried the portobello fries. The batter tastes quite special and it really complement the portobello well.. Tried the lemon tart.. The curd is slightly sweet and sour, with nice fragrance.. However the tart is soft and I personally would prefer a more “firm and lightly crisp tart edge” .. Overall the food is delicious.. Will be back to try more of their pasta..
Affordable and rather decent offerings at Pastaria Abate. Customizing your own pasta was also painless. Ordered the Egg & Prosciutto with Tagliatelle which was good, the Martini Grilled Pork was tender and succulent too. Though initially the portion looked pretty small, it was overall quite filling. Each plate was good for one.
2nd visit to Pastaria Abate, had the Truffle Carbonara on my 1st and it was really truffle, so good I yearn for it. However, it was slightly disappointing on my 2nd, did not had the same truffle as my 1st. Also ordered their special Garlic Aglio Olio, it was nicely done.
Food was good and prices are very reasonable. However, I think that maybe because the restaurant is still quite new, it suffers from some teething problems in terms of service . For instance, we ordered 2 pasta dishes. But the second arrived almost 45 minutes after the first (which in itself took 30 minutes to arrive). Also, what was on my plate did not look anything like the restaurant's photo of tagliatelle, nor what we understand tagliatelle to be. Rather, we received what looked like hastily cut up pasta sheets. At least they apologised for the delay. But we were too tired/hungry from the wait to dispute what was eventually served for the second dish. As a result, I'm not sure I'll be craving to return anytime soon.
the food and environment were both good. it was new year eve, more ppl reserved their tables but the service was still quite quick. tried a bottle of red wine and a few pastas. red sauce was not tat good. maybe we can not find any pasta shop in singapore using fresh tomato any more, even in the restaurant like this one that announces it is freshly handmade pasta... but not pasta sauce? haha...
