Description: Pastaciutta is the only place in Rome where you can eat fresh pasta produced in the morning and cooked in 3 minutes. You can see the production, watch the chef cooking your handmade pasta and have it by 4-5€. We produce Ravioli, Maccheroni, Rigatoni, Tagliatelle, Spaghetti, Fettuccine and much more. We don't take reservations. We are open always, also on sundays and bank holidays, except on Christmas (25th of December).

After taking a walk around Vatican City, we ended up at this small pasta joint considered fast food pasta. They offer about 6 different flavors with different types of handmade pasta. It is a small place but having the kitchen in the open gives a nice opportunity to see how they make the pasta and put the sauces together quickly. We sat outside on the curb as there was not enough room inside, but it was fine! We ordered 3 different pastas and the sauces were amazing! The pasta is very “a la dente” so if you are used to cooking your pasta a bit more, you find this one a little hard. The only other thing that I would suggest they change due to our current ecological issues is that they reuse the plastic dishware they give you. They are not the normal disposable plastic/paper dishware, but a thicker plastic that can easily be washed and reused. The bin outside had piles and piles of bowls.

Their advantage is fresh pasta, but they have very limited place to seat, you should take it away.
Not my favorite one, but it was very busy, food was OK.

I just took away pastas from Pastasciutta. The taste was maybe the best I’ve ever tasted when talking about pasta. Service was a little bit disappointment, the chef was yawning loudly after making our food.

Amazing pasta! And so cheap! Do yourself the favor and stop by after your trip to the Vatican. The pasta is fresh, you can even watch them making it in front of you. Only problem is extremely little seating (maybe enough for 8 people) so we sat on the street to eat ours. And plastic plates and utensils which I don’t like because it is damaging to our environment. Otherwise the food is amazing, real Italian pasta.

We went there after a visit to the Vatican Museum. There are a few choices of pasta, but they’re delicious and very affordable (5.5€/portion). The staff is really nice, but the place is really small. Don’t go there with a group larget than 6, unless you intend to take away.
