Would love to give 5 stars

This is the best pasta we have ever eaten! It was fresh and tasty and the Vegan ragu was brilliant. We've had a salad as a starter and veggie bruschetta, which was absolutely delicious. We totally recommend going here when you are in Valletta. It's great taste for a reasonable price

The pasta was fresh and super tasty. 2 vegan pasta shape options, both great. The sauces we enjoyed too. Fair prices. Service is a bit slow and unbothered which is a bit of a shame but overall we enjoyed it.

Pasta ottima

Ho ordinato l’unica varietà di pasta vegana proposta sul menu e sono rimasta molto soddisfatta: si tratta di pasta agli spinaci, fatta a mano e condita con un ragù di verdure molto gustoso. Tutto cotto molto bene, parola di Italiana 😉
Staff super cordiale

Limited vegan options

From what we could see there was one vegan sauce option - vegan Ragu. It wasn’t incredible but it was tasty and did come with fresh vegan pasta. We also had bruschetta to start. Not the best spot for vegan food but it filled a hole.

Pros: Fresh pasta

Cons: Few choices

Nice and simple

Like previous reviews we had the vegan ragu and salad with spinach pasta. Tasted good, but its nothing exceptional. Still one of the few places that is open even on a Sunday afternoon, and staff was very friendly and sweet

Absolutely horrible

We expected to go to a place where pasta is freshly cooked. Unfortunately, all sorts of pasta weren’t available. The bruschetta was ok and the waiter serving drinks was very nice (that’s the one star rating). The waitress serving good and explaining pasta was very moody. She explained we couldn’t get seaweed pasta as there was no seaweed to get on Malta at this time. Yet, both our neighbours got it. Furthermore, we ordered the big portion and only got a very small portion, our neighbours who ordered the small potions got way more pasta compared to what they gave us. We had Aglioolio olio with Chili and the only things we could taste was Chili and oil, so no good at all. We were highly disappointed and cannot recommend this place at all. If you ask, there’s a lot of places that offer vegan food in Valetta even though not offered in the menu but this place is not the one to go to.

Pros: Waiter serving wine is friendly, Wine was good

Cons: Most of staff unfriendly , Pasta wasnt available at all and didnt taste well

Delicious pasta!

Pastaus has some vegan options. You can choose from different type of homemade pasta. But not all are vegan, you have to ask staff. I had spinach pasta and it was yummy.

Pros: Homemade pasta

Truly delicious pasta!

Had an amazing dinner here. They have several vegan starters, three vegan options for mains, and one vegan dessert. I skipped the starters and went for a big portion of vegan ragù. It was sooo good!

You can choose which kind of home made pasta you want, and they offer two vegan options: one with spinach and one with chili. I went for the chili since it pairs well with the ragù. Really tasty.

If you order a starter and/or aren't a big eater, I would recommend the small/ starter portion of pasta. I had the bigger portion and was absolutely stuffed!

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to have a delicious and filling vegan meal. It's also a great place for people who are travelling with non-vegans.

They don't have vegan cheese, but I didn't miss it at all: my pasta was so flavourful on its own!

I would also advice you to book your table in advance, the place fills up quickly 😉 We (2 people) didn't reserve a table and could still be seated, but we sat inside at a table in the corner.

We paid €38 for a bottle of water, one glass of wine and two big portions of pasta, which I think is fair considering the portion sizes and how delicious it all is!

Pros: Delicious food , Multiple vegan options

Great choice

Pastaus is a great choice if you’re looking for an authentic feeling Italian am fresco dine

- Lovely staff that were very helpful
- About 5 vegan pasta options, we were offered for some to be made vegan by removing the cheese element as well
- You’re presented with examples of dry pasta to choose from, very nice touch
- The bruschetta was great
- The staff were lovely
- Nice cocktail selection

- While the outside seating was nice for hot weather, the restaurant is located on a steep hill which can be quite an unpleasant feeling especially while eating
- The bathroom was a bit rough and the toilet had no seat at all
- Although the vegan options were nice, they were quite plain and no meat substitutes or vegan cheeses were available

Pros: Nice vegan options , Outside seating , Good value for money

Cons: VG options were very basic , Don’t sit outside if you have virtigo, Poor condition of bathroom

Perfect for pasta lovers!!

Super good fresh pasta. Sadly there was only one vegan pasta to choose at the moment we ordered but then later there were more choices as they were just in the making when we arrived.

We also had Bruschette as a starter. Everything was very good and the staff was super nice.

Non vegan options = boyfriend approved😜👍

Pros: Super fresh pasta, Friendly and fast serving, Super tasty

Cons: Toilet was out of order the day I was there

Not many options

Came here based on the reviews and was a little disappointed at how few options there were for vegans. The vegan options aren’t clearly marked on the menu but the waiting staff are happy to discuss. There were possibly 3 vegan sauce options but I just opted for the tomato sauce with basil. Only one of the pasta types was vegan so I had to have that one. We also shared some bruschetta.
The food overall was really nice and the main pasta option was a decent portion size. Just wish some of the inventive options seen on here previously were still available.
We came on a Friday and booked ahead. There were only 2 waiting staff and they were totally rushed off their feet. Not sure if that’s normal for the restaurant but I’d recommend booking ahead and leaving at least 2 hours for a starter and main.

Lovely place with amazing pasta

It was a very cute restaurant. The girl who waited us was super friendly and helpful.
There are vegan options and you can choose between different kind of pasta. She's gonna tell you which one is vegan and which contains egg. If I will come back to Valetta, I'll go there again.

Happy with my choices!

There are more vegetarian options than meat options and at least 7 of the 15 sauces are vegan and there are 3 fresh pasta Made without egg! So my choices were great! I was able to order a basil pesto which they made fresh without cheese! The waitress will guide you through everything, so make sure you tell her if you require veggie/vegan or even Gluten free! Ahh I love this place! I take everyone I know as often as possible!

Pros: Super fresh pasta, Excellent service , Beautiful location

Nice food!

It’s inside Valleta and that’s a very good spot! The employees are very kind and want to help, but I don’t think that there are many vegan options! Also, they don’t have vegan cheese, something that I think it’s necessary for my pasta! However, the plate was fine!

Pros: Good food, Kind employees , In the center of Valletta

Cons: Not many vegan options , No vegan cheese

Very tasty Fresh pasta

They have vegan options like classic pasta (oil and garlic) or tomato sauce. And a proper vegan main dish made with spinach pasta with avocado, cherry tomatoes, red onion and coconut milk sauce. Big portions. Really nice place.

Cons: Could be great to find a vegan italian dessert.
