And if this isn’t enough, be sure to check out all the amazing looking pasta dishes on Dishtag! Buon Appetito!

Classic & Comforting

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” There’s a reason why the most popular pasta recipes have remained largely unchanged for centuries. And why should they? There really aren’t many ways to improve on a hearty Bolognese, a silky Vongole or a rustic Tomato Sauce on Pasta. And these restaurants stay true to the traditional roots of Italian cooking to serve up comforting renditions of some Italian classics!

Luxurious and Decadent

Traditional may be comforting. But every now and again it doesn’t hurt to indulge on the finer things in life. If there’s one sure-fire way to elevate a traditional Italian recipe, it would be to use some of the most luxurious produce available. And if you’re looking for something more a little more decadent, check out these restaurants. Think Truffles, Sea Urchin and Caviar!

Unique & Exotic

As pasta grew in popularity around the world, there was an inevitability that new interpretations would arise using localised ingregients. And these next restaurants haven’t disappointed! These Japanese, Korean and Southeast Asian interpretations feel distinctly Asian, while maintaining the familiarity of an Italian pasta dish.
