Somehow pasta with marinara sauce seems to taste better at restaurants like Pasta Pomodoro. Do they make it differently than the recipes I see on youtube?

You probably need to ask them. I never order any pasta at restaurants.
Is Pasta Pomodoro still in business? I thought they are out of business since 2016.

You can ask for the recipe. But, like Elina, I never order pasta when out ( it is so easy to make at home ). However I have had pasta as a side dish, when out, & it is good. What do you like about it, is it the herbs, the tomato taste or the sweetness? If you decide what you prefer in it, you can tweak your home recipie

Just guessing: they use a lot more sugar and salt than you would use at home. Plus maybe, they have a longer simmer time.


Unless it is a high end restaurant, they are most likely using canned sauce. Some of the foods sold pre-made for restaurants are really tasty.

I'm thinking the OP was referring to the dish, not the restaurant? I could be wrong.

Yeah, that part needs clarification...

It is probably because the pasta was cooked with a lot of salt.
