About The Pasta Merchant

Launceston is home to The Pasta Merchant cosy and locally famed for selling quick & delicious takeaway Italian dishes; fresh pastas and sauces at wholesale prices. The best part is you can take it home and pretend you made it yourself (of course don't be selfish and do spread the word afterwards). Though dining is a busy café experience worthy in itself, with bare tables and alfresco options; they make you feel right at home with excellent hospitality and a casual approach. Their homemade Italian dishes originate from tried and true family recipes passed down over generations, a delicious lineage for you to enjoy at reasonable prices; try a combination of their wide range of pastas and assorted sauces and homemade gelato for dessert and do BYO.

I love this place, it is in a really good location, the food is fantastic with a wide variety of dishes to choose from. The ingredients are very fresh and their gnocchi is the best I have tasted. I often take people here for a quick lunch time meal as it is convenient and affordable to come more than once a week. The gelati is the best in Tas and these guys are excellent at what they do.


Great fresch pasta and even better sauces


Amazing Italian in a fantastic, relaxed cafe with outstanding customer service. Take away is a great option after a big day at work. Definitely the best gelato in Tassie!
