Anybody visited the Pasta Museum in Rome?

Has anyone been to the Pasta Museum in Rome? Is it worth a detour?
Thanks much.

  1. Sure - it was good fun. Difficult to locate, but worth the adventure. We went when it had recently opened - so this was a few years ago. They supply headsets with translated talking tours. Probably one-two hours is plenty, since it is a small museum.

    1. It is a swell one-hour museum, heavy on the kitsch but delicious. It is just a few yards from San Crispino, which makes possibly the best gelato in Rome, and not much farther from the estimable Al Moro, a wonderful if rather expensive old-style trattoria once frequented by Fellini and de Chirico.
