Me and my friend visited pastamadre and were amazed by the excellent food! I had the rice ball with meat as a starter which was extremely delicious. As a main course I chose the pasta with octopus which was also amazing! My friend had the triangolo which were very delicous, but the portion was far too small! For Desert my... More

I knew it is famous for its pasta so we ordered 4 different pastas. The best one was the one with special mushroom and cream. One of the best pasta I ever tasted, but the shrimp pasta was so bland and tasteless. Dessert with robarba and grape ice cream was great and tasty as well. Very simple concept pasta restaurant...

I did not like this restaurant, the food was average and the prices too high. 33cl beers at €6.50 and €12-€13 for appetizers... very small portions..

Food is great, mostly from Sicilian tradition yet reinvented to suit a more modern taste. The real highlight of this place is its wine list: broad, deep and very much centered around natural wines.

We were excited to try Pastamadre after reading many good reviews. We managed to book a table and happily went for dinner. First, I was very annoyed that we got seated to a table of 4 just in front of the door leading to the toilets. This was not pleasant at all especially having people go in and out throughout... More

I've spend the weekend in Milano and asked Valentina, the owner of the apartment where to eat. She mentioned Pastamadre. And I have to thank her for this perfect suggestion. Pastamadre offers 'your' Italian mother's kitchen. Antipasti, primi and secondi like they should be; simple, few basic ingredients, presented without any pompous garnish. The first visit I had Burrata and... More

The ambience is lovely and the waitress as well. We were 4 people and we ordered 3 different kind of pasta. I had Chitarre with octopus ragu, chestnut mousse with chocolate granche. I had water. I paid 22 euros, which is quite a lot for a pasta and a dessert but considering the high quality of the ingredients it is... More

Don't be confused by the name ...you can have even meat and fish as well. The food is excellent and you will taste something really special. Last but not least ...don't miss the desserts ;-) friendly staff and good atmosphere with a competitive price. In few words: it's worth the price.

If in milan this restaurant is a must. The pasta is made at the restaurant and is delicious. We ordered 2 pasta dishes and fish with Pistachios and 3 colors of peppers. Everything was tasty, and beautifully served. For dessert, we took the pistachio cream with lemon mousse on a thin chocolate cookie. We drank a glass of wine....total of... More

Food is excellent and prices reasonable. "Only" four points because the place - although very cozy and peculiar - is really small. Staff nice and good service.
