I am an Italian volunteering in Sri Lanka for 2 months, and as you could imagine I have tried a couple Italian restaurants across the country, yet no authentic ones. Pasta factory is authentic, with ingredients imported from Italy by the owner's mother herself! Price is totally suitable to the quality. Great food, great prices and great owner !!

This is really a little gem! Not a big place, only a few tables, but with a nice atmosphere - and the food is really yummy! Pasta is cooked perfectly “al dente” and very tasteful. It’s like a piece of Italy in the middle of Galle Forte!

Relatively new restaurant so was excited to try. Was told the meat lasagne to be the best but..not! No air con but nice casual atmosphere. The lasagne was like a creamy béchamel dish with layers of pasta...where was the meat???

We went here based on the reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. We took a bottle of wine with us as they don’t sell alcohol but you can bring beers too if you like. The pasta was gorgeous. I had the special which was beetroot ravioli stuffed with pumpkin and my husband had the tomato gnocchi, both were lovely. The Italian lady who runs this is very friendly as are all the staff. Highly recommended if you get fed up of curry.
