Handmade, Heartmade

Pasta & Cuore is a fully-licensed Italian Restaurant and Pastificio in the heart of Mt Eden, open from lunch through to dinner. We specialize in handmade fresh pasta using quality ingredients and traditional methods.

Open for dinner from Tuesday to Saturday and lunch on Saturday. We are closed on Sunday and Monday.


Sit at one of our shopfront tables and watch all the action where fresh pasta is made while your meal is being prepared, relax outside with a glass of wine in our beautiful courtyard, or sit at one of our friendly shared tables.

At Pasta & Cuore we believe that the best tasting food can only be prepared using the best quality ingredients. We will not compromise quality for price and we use locally sourced organic produce whenever possible. All of our meat and eggs are free-range and we adjust our menu to reflect the season. We also import specialty produce from Italy when locally made versions are not available or not of high enough quality.


You can order a take home meal of freshly cooked pasta (deserts are available too), or buy servings of fresh pasta to take home, cook and serve to family and friends.
