Awesome pasta, super delicious! As they say "Our pasta makes you go fasta!" and it couldn't be more true as I was able to ride 85km on the A2O trail after that lunch! A must for everyone and especially for cyclists :D

Lovely people selling pasta on Tyne street. Love their fettuccine so much which was so fresh and tasty. They cooked fresh sauce on the cute caravan. Will definitely be back! Highly recommended the creamy pesto. <3 <3

Reliably, every Thursday, the lovely people from Asta la Pasta deliver gorgeous sauce and freshly made pasta to homes around our lovely town. We alternate between fettucine or spaghetti, but always have a Neopolitan, made with fresh organic ingredients. They also sell pasta meals at...More
