Small, warm, friendly restaurant, a short menu all based around pasta, some staples and then a ever changing 1-3 dishes. The pasta here is good, simple as, you want good pasta without any messing about go here, sit down and enjoy.

Great food and decent prices! I did the meal deal with a starter, small pasta dish and glass of wine, which was great! It's the cutest little restaurant and the edible plates were very entertaining to our group!

Unfortunately, we do not have gluten-free pasta. We have only one pasta machine and we produce one type of pasta (flour). Sorry.

"Pasta Factory" - Our quaint restaurant in the heart of Galway is a place where we produce, cook and serve our own fresh pasta every day. Our fresh pasta is served with different, aromatic sauces, and every week we have a new menu, using only fresh and seasonal ingredients from our own local producers and from Italy. We are the first restaurant in Galway where food is served on edible plates - made from wheat bran, the plates are 100% natural, no chemicals, fully compostable within 30 days and safe for children. It's our choice to be eco-friendly. Pasta Factory is designed to be accessible and affordable, a neighbourhood restaurant where everyone is welcome and feels comfortable. In our restaurant we focus on exceptional food, good company and a great atmosphere.
