I have always wondered why machine-made foodstuff is in a form that's difficult and messy to eat (spaghetti) and failing decent taste experiences other than traditional Finnish 'makaronilaatikko' - either at school or home, with lots of ketchup, of course - have kept me reckon pasta only as low value compressed wheat flour.

Lamb fillet pasta Agnello changed my opinion.

Fresh pasta is made on the spot using good quality ingredients and seasoning with care. Lamb was tender and tasty with garlic and parmegiano. Pasta strips were thick, suitable al dente and easy to handle without messing your face and clothes. Delicious!

It was nice to notice that even at lunch time customers are conducted to tables and service rolls smoothly. Pleasant, homey atmosphere keeps you staying longer than somewhere else but if you are just after gobbling a quick lunch in a hurry this is not your place.

The pasta was very good - fresh and lovely spices. I really liked my kotpot-chicken pasta. Also bolognese and sausage pastas were praised. Pastas - five stars *****.

The bread was a disappointment because it was dry and we paid for it.

The service was ok but could be more professional.

More lunch place than dinner restaurant.

The Makaronitehdas restaurant has mainly pasta on their menu plus some salads. I had the Pasta Bolognese, it was OK but would have needed more spices. Service was polite & rapid. All in all OK if you don't have high expectations

The Makaronitehdas is a restaurant specialized in Pasta. Decoration is very nice. Quality is good. Service ok. Prices are ok for Finland.

I have now eaten here twice for lunch (pesto & pilpil). The food is really good, but this is quite an expensive lunch place - there are no separate lunch lists.

The annoying things are that they charge for tap water and also for parmesan and for bread. They also always ask if you want to have champagne. And you don't get a spoon to eat the pasta with?!

But still recommended for the tasty pasta!
