Pasta & Cuore is a Restaurant and Pastificio in the heart of Mt Eden. We specialize in handmade Italian fresh pasta using quality ingredients and traditional methods.
We invite you to visit Pasta & Cuore where you can eat lunch or an early diner, order a take home meal of freshly cooked pasta (deserts are available too), or buy servings of fresh pasta and sauces ready to take home, cook and serve to family and friends.
Sit at one of our individual tables and watch all the action with fresh pasta made while your meal is being prepared. Alternatively, sit at one of our friendly shared tables, or relax outside with a glass of wine in our beautiful courtyard garden.
At Pasta & Cuore we believe that the best tasting food can only be prepared using the best quality ingredients. We use locally sourced organic produce whenever possible and will not compromise quality for price. All of our meat and eggs are free-range and we prefer to adjust our menu to reflect the season rather than use imported out of season produce. We also import specialty produce from Italy, such as Prosciutto di Parma, when locally made versions are not available or not of high enough quality.

A few years later in the United States I had the chance to work with the great
Zak the Baker
in Miami. Zak taught me to follow the natural timing of sourdough and how to prepare the
healthiest and tastiest bread I have ever eaten. Following that experience, I
worked in the kitchen of Angelo Masarin’s Miami restaurant. This was an important step
for me as he made me think about the role of traditional Italian cuisine abroad.
