The best Italian food that I've ever had in my life - and my partner felt the same. Wonderful flavours I've not tasted anywhere else.

Best Italian restaurant of Manchester. Servizio impeccabile e cibo di ottima qualità. La sensazione è di trovarsi veramente in Italia, poi il caffè servito con la moka è molto scenografico. Lo consiglieremo a tutti i nostri amici.

Booked this restaurant for lunch time for my friends birthday. The waiter was extremely nice. Very polite and friendly. Felt very personal and welcomed. Following that, the food was amazing. We had the vegan cheese and crackers starter which was so tasty. I’m not vegan but this was very well put together with caramelised onions and chilli jam. Definitely try it. Following starters we ordered a vegan pasta and a slow cooked beef ragu pasta. Both so authentic tasting. Really delicious food and extremely friendly staff/chefs. Definitely try it!

Food and service were both great! Would definitely visit again :) I was served the wrong plate of pasta by accident, and was then offered to have it replaced, which I declined. On hindsight this was probably the right decision, since I enjoyed the plate of pasta so much!

Incredible service and lovely staff! Thoroughly enjoyed myself thanks to the staff! The food was AMAZING and the vegan options were also honestly perfect! I had the vegan starter to share which has vegan cheese and it was that nice I had to buy some more before I left!!! £5 for a ball of vegan cheese??? YES PLEASE! for main I had a mushroom ravioli which was to die for and they even gave me some vegan Parmesan to place on top!! Then for dessert I had a chocolate ravioli! I enjoyed my boyfriends dessert more which was on the specials board- it was apple and walnut tart with chocolate drizzle to pour on the side! Honestly a lovely meal and will 100% be back, you should definitely go, if you're a vegan or not, you have just as many options both ways! The only little bad thing I had to say was it was quite chilly but that's just being picky!

Easily the best restaurant serving pasta in Great Manchester. The vegan cheese was the night's surprise whilst the beetroot and squid ink pasta where mind blowing, last but not least the forest fruit vegan cake was the great end to a wonderful dinner. The restaurant has a cosy feeling that make you feel welcome immediately, however the big windows and high ceilings remind you that you are on a grand building simply but beautifully decorated. This is a must!

The service we received throughout the night was exceptional! Our table was delayed by around 15 minutes and we were kindly offered rosé on the house. The starters and main meals were very original and whilst having few options, are nailed to perfection. It was also wonderful to see such a vegan-friendly menu with vegan dishes and parmesan available! The only downside would be the raw chocolate, coconut and carrot cake which wasn't to our taste but other than that Pasta Factory is 100% recommended by all three of us!

Great informal atmosphere, very friendly service. The drinks were great, lovely house white wine and one of the best beers I have had for ages. Our vegetarian starters were also delicious. For main we both had wholemeal pasta filled with mackerel. This became a bit too much as a main, and my wife couldn't finish. I suspect other mains would have been better. Suggestion that they offer three pasta dishes for two people, with slightly smaller portions so you could share. The dessert wasn't great, quite a dense and heavy pana cotta. Will certainly go back and order the main more carefully next time, and perhaps stitch with ice cream for desset

Great little restaurant within 2-3 min walk of Crowne Plaza Hotel. Pasta fresh and tasty. It does get busy fast, so make a reservation. We had a 6pm reservation and were seated immediately. However, by 6:30pm (Sat night) restaurant was full. We noticed food took a little longer as restaurant got busier, but it was worth the wait. Price was reasonable and would definitely recommend. Lovely choice of homemade sorbets as well.

Overall pretty good. However the service could have been better. They were very pleasant and friendly but a little slow. The table wasn't ready when we arrived (on time) and so we had to stand around for 5 minutes while they sorted it. They were a bit slow bringing the menus and then taking the order. Perhaps they were a little short staffed. The pasta was delicious though so I would certainly go again.
