Imperia Restaurant electric pasta machine
The Imperia Restaurant electric pasta machine is a serious piece of pasta kit, aimed primarily at owners of restaurants and delicatessens, caterers and any other folks for whom 4 or 6 normal servings of luscious fresh pasta just isn’t enough!
2 automated versions of the Imperia Restaurant are available:
The electric model is the one you’ll find in most stores and on Amazon (see below), so it’s the one we’ll concentrate on here. It’s also sometimes referred to as the Imperia 220 Electric.
About the machine:
It makes 210mm width flat lengths of pasta (AKA noodles in the US), and it can produce up to 10 different thicknesses depending on which roller setting you choose.
If you want to cut your rolled pasta into different shapes, you’ll need to either do this manually (see my shape guides ) or invest in one of Imperia’s many ‘Simplex’ cutter attachments.
An add-on called the ‘Impastatore Restaurant’ is also available, into which you add flour etc. and which uses a turning blade to then create the initial dough mixture, rather than forming it by hand (but that's easy – see here).

Typical Amazon feedback:
- “I bought the Electric about a month ago. Since then, I have made pasta about three times a week. The machine is easy to use, easy to clean. How easy? Well I'm making pasta in the evening after work. In a session lasting about 100 minutes I can make three batches of 10 eggs/1kg flour. That gives me about 55 half litre (1 pint)tubs of cooked egg pasta in, say an hour and a half. No way I could do that with a manual machine. It's expensive, but hey , it is so-o worth it."
Other online feedback (from akitchen):
- “What a pleasure it is to use! I am a university lecturer and "pasta fresca, fatta in casa" is my little sideline. After working all day you really need something easy to use. Speed and minimum effort please! Well yes, the Imperia does it all. I can now do 4 batches of 5 eggs/500g flour inside of 60 minutes! I can have the kitchen cleaned and 6.5kg cooked pasta in the freezer in 1hr 40 start to finish. Expensive but real good.”
EXPECT TO PAY: US $1800-1900.
