My FAVOURITE Italian restaurant outside of Italy. Fantastic food, delicious drinks, amazing atmosphere, superb service...what more can you ask for? Finally a place that treats vegans and omnivores the same! Can't wait to get back.

Only a small restaurant but worth visiting, service was excellent and the menu although not overdone with choices was sufficient for vegetarians and non vegetarians and when the pasta dishes arrived the food was fresh,,well cooked and very tasty, overall a very good eating experience. Manchester

Overall pretty good. However the service could have been better. They were very pleasant and friendly but a little slow. The table wasn't ready when we arrived (on time) and so we had to stand around for 5 minutes while they sorted it. They were a bit slow bringing the menus and then taking the order. Perhaps they were a little short staffed. The pasta was delicious though so I would certainly go again.

My third visit to the Pasta Factory - I just wish it was in my neighbourhood and I'd visit a lot more ! An informal, reasonably priced independent Italian that just does really interesting home made pasta dishes with home made gelato and sorbets as desert and mixed "taglieri" plates to begin, accompanied by excellent Italian wines and beers. My type of food !

Great Antipasti starter with some excellent Vegan options too!! The small selection of main course pasta dishes are amazing, have now tried three of them and I cannot find a fault.

Excellent pasta! Definitely worth the experience . Good pasta portion, desert small (ravioli) but high quality. The staff was very keen in providing details on the plates if required.
