Pasta and Cuore restaurant review

Metro Top 50 2018 restaurant Pasta and Cuore in Mt Eden is a traditional Italian bistro.

Dining at this Mt Eden pastificio may make you question every Italian meal you’ve had, because owner and executive chef Stefania Ugolini’s knack for sourcing the purest and fruitiest olive oils, the ripest produce – some of which is grown on site – and the best Italian wines is unmatched in the city. Ugolini grew up in Bologna and has been cooking since she was five; her years of experience and eye for quality, combined with knowledgeable staff and the enchanting courtyard setting (which is heated in winter), mean you’re in for a delightful dining experience. This is a special little local, and you’ll leave with a warm glow of satisfaction.
