“Very best Italian food in Memphis”
Review of The Pasta Maker

The Pasta Maker
Ranked #16 of 108 Restaurants in Germantown
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

WOW! This place is the best Italian food in Memphis. Handmade pasta daily. The bread is homemade and just delicious. Tagliatelle with bolognese was to die for--best I've ever had. Husband had spaghetti and meatballs also outstanding. There was a special Caesar salad with arugula that was so good I could have eaten two of them. All portions are HUGE! They have a wine list with Italian wines so if you want something else just bring it; the corkage fee is $10. Also, had an apple tart and some vanilla gelato...we had to be rolled home! Just unbelievable food. Other people have complained about the prices...they are in line for the quality of the food.

My wife and I had the lasagna (no salad), 1/2 carafe of wine and one cup of coffee. The bill was $61 plus. The lasagna was OK but I have had better. The service was good and the staff friendly. Bottom line: this is not a bad place but I have gotten better values else ware. Also, there is too much background noise.

The Pasta Maker is a restaurant that demonstrates European fine dining at its best. Everything is fresh and made to order. The staff is educated and willing to share their knowledge of the cooking techniques.

Besides the great food we were serenaded by an adorable man playing the accordion. It just added to the authentic atmosphere.

We went with two other couples and I must say it was an evening of fine food, great conversation, lots of laughter and memories that will last for months.

Thank you Pasta Maker for such an incredible bit of Europe in Germantown.

Our group had veil, ravioli, lasagna, salads with salmon. Everybody liked their food. I had lasagna and it was very good. Appetizers were all good. Service was very good however they got very busy about 7:30 - 8:00 PM and seem to get a somewhat overwhelmed. Good Italian.

We went here for a special occasion on a Tuesday night and it was so-so. We made reservations and were happy to see they had actually reserved a table for 2 for us. The server was friendly but didn't seem too knowledgeable about the menu. The prices are kind of high for their specials but the basics are around $20. We spilt a salad that was $12 and overpriced for what it contained. The tables were crowded in the space but the service was good. There were a lot of employees milling about and the Chef made an appearance. We brought our own wine and were happy with that decision after seeing their selection. All in all this is a place that is expensive food choice but in a below average space. There are nicer Italian dining experiences in the area for the same price
