Arrabiatta, Carbonara & More: 18 Places To Head To When All You Want Is Pasta

Does pasta make your heart beat ‘fasta’? From penne to fusilli to bow tie, from arrabbiata to carbonara to Alfredo, we’ve got our favourites all decided. And yes, you can take a bite.

The Big Chill

What to order: Baked Penne Primavera, Chicken Ravioli with Creamy Parmesan, Fusilli with Pepperoni and Ricotta. However, if you want to venture beyond these three, we think you’re safe ordering pretty much anything off The Big Chill pasta menu.

Public Affair

What to order: Spaghetti in Truffle Sauce with vegetables; this is on the spicier side, but so chock-full of flavour that you won’t even miss your usual pepperoni order. While you’re at Public Affair, do try their sparkling wine cocktails.

Artusi

What to order: Cappelletto Carbonara, Tortellini al Ragu.

Ivy & Bean

What to order: Baked Penne with Chicken and Mozzarella, Prawn Pesto Fettucine. Ivy and Bean also has some great breakfast options in case you’re looking for an early bite.
