Love this place. The homemade pasta is to die for, and they do a mean tiramisu.

It’s a my favourite restaurant. The food is amazing I have been 4 times now. The wine list is great. Brisbane needs more places like this.

Wonderfully fresh pasta. My husband and I loved our Bologna. One of our party thought that the pumpkin pasta was good but the amaretti in it was a bit sweet. Service was excellent. Prompt and friendly.

Hi Bernadette, I'm glad you enjoyed your dining experience with us! The tortelli di zucca is a traditional pasta from Mantova, Lombardia. It's definitely a bit sweet, and not to everyone's taste. Hope to see you again soon!

Probably the best pasta I've ever eaten. Great selection of wine. Expert knowledge and accommodating service from the staff.

A beautiful restaurant setting yet service and food was average in my honest opinion.

Hi, thanks for the feedback. We don't have waiters - it's just me and my husband & our service is intentionally casual. This is reflected in our prices. We make everything according to tradition, & many of our recipes are registered with regional organisations and institutes. The food is exactly how it's supposed to be, and pays respect to the regional recipes we share. Thanks for your "support", and while you're welcome to, I don't suggest you try again as we intend to keep things how they are.

Great family service. Food was good but service was slow, and meals did not come out together (there was 15 mins between them). We had a group of 7 and did not eat together.

Hi Jon, thanks for the feedback! We remember your table and you're totally right. The wait between meals was due to some technical difficulties with the power supply, and two members of our staff being in training still. We were aware that your wait time was above what we would normally permit, and we would have compensated for this except that when asked everyone gave us great feedback. Were now working to resolve this issue, so please don't hesitate to try us again soon!

Excellent handmade pasta. As close to Italy as you can get in Brisbane! Try the duck Ragu bigoli!

Loved the service, very engaging and helpful.

Food was of the highest quality - fresh, rich and flavour-packed.

Lighting and tables didn’t seem to match the product. Not a criticism but not what was expected

Will visit again

If you want a little taste of Italy, look no further than Ripiena for an authentic Italian lunch. Made even better by the take away fresh pasta you can purchase to make at home the next day. Although the interior isn't flash, it's run by Italians who are passionate about food and providing authentic dishes from many Italian Provences. This little establishment is definitely worth a visit for a truly tasty pasta.

Pasta is fantastic but took 50 mins for us to get out food. It’s also has bad acoustics in there so very loud and hard to hear the person across from you.

Amazing pasta! Being vegetarian we were a little worried there may not be enough choice but pleasantly surprised with lots of options! You can tell the owners take their craft seriously as the execution was perfect and the taste sensational - price was very reasonable also. Great desserts too, will be back.

Best pasta that we have ever eaten and the staff were so friendly and passionate about the food. We had a loud and hungry two year old with us and they made us feel very welcome.
It was a relaxed and down to earth dining experience but with absolute top quality food cooked with love. If we lived in Brisbane then we would be visiting frequently!

Exceptional service, and hands down the freshest and best pasta I have had in my life. I like the simplicity of the sauce which keeps the attention on the real star of the dish here: the pasta itself. Amaretti also makes a delicious appearance inside the pumpkin tortelli. Already planning our return.

My husband enjoyed eating at Ripiena very much, the food was great and of very good quality. Service needs improvement and overall some refinement. But for a newly established venue we have high hopes and look forward to being back soon.
