Arrived from Rome in 2014, the Mancini family decided to change their lives and embark on a new and exciting adventure in Australia. After several experiences as Chefs in Italy and also in Australia, Valentina and Otello decide in 2019 to return on the market with a singular hospitality concept that had already been successful in Rome since 2010 . Radici Pasta House, in Italian language “Radici” means roots indicating the intention to offer a cuisine deeply rooted in Italian food culture with a modern accent and an extreme attention to the overall experience. Head Chef Marco Minore, who also joined Radici Pasta House in 2019, with his menu has contributed to giving life to this project which, in addition to the particular chef table seats around the bar, represents something unique in Gold Coast and beyond.

The most authentic Italian restaurant on the GC. The staff are so friendly & helpful when ordering paired wines. It's by far the best.

The menu has a lot of variety with very fresh produce. Our waitress was very helpful and nothing was any trouble. The chocolate mousse was to die for. Will go back again. The ambience made for a romantic feel, Coolangatta has come of age with its restaurant culture

All sorts of goodness! Was recommended another Italian restaurant nearby but lucky I do my own research and I know a good menu when I see one. We make our own pasta so a little picky and this was the BEST! Order the lobster pasta.
Also I’m not a fan of blue cheese but the gnocchi has changed my mind and taste.

You won’t be disappointed about the food, genuine Italian dishes. The seafood risotto was excellent. Unfortunately the wines didn’t keep pace with the food. Suggest more Australian wines on the menu & maybe lighten the hip pocket on the wine prices. Overall a good experience of Italian hospitality.

The pasta itself was delicious however although the wait staff were very nice the service was poor as they seemed understaffed. Also for those prices I would have expected a serve of bread to come with the meal.

The food is so tasty, the flavours amazing.
I’ve been there twice, first time I had the lobster tail pasta and just recently back for the second time and had the seafood pasta. Again, the flavour was amazing but I would love to see more seafood in the dish.
The owner is so lovely and is so welcoming and nothing is a problem.
My friend and I ordered a glass of their lovely white wine and decided to get the bottle instead after it was delivered, so the lovely owner gave us the glass on the house.
I highly recommend Radici Pasta House to anyone who loves awesome Italian food.
We will be back and thank you so much for your lovely hospitality

Most amazing Italian meal I have ever had on the Gold Coast. We all sat outside and enjoyed genuine and authentic food and wine under a warm QLD night sky. Perfect.

Great new Italian in Coolangatta with authentic pastas. The sauces were delicious. The service was excellent- only issue was noise levels. We went in a night when it was raining so probably this affected the noise levels. Definitely will return.

I visited 6 months ago and had a brilliant experience. This time was quite disappointing, the food was of poorer quality and not a lot of value. My partner ordered a pork pasta that had 1 small piece of meat in the whole dish. Such a shame.

The food was OK. Not as good as other Italian restaurants in the area though.
Service was not good possibly because the manager was devoting most of his time to attending to a table of friends/regulars. It is always a challenge in a tourist destination to look after the transients as nicely as the locals......but it needs to be done! Would we return? Probably not. There are better options.
