Ambiance

When we visited the Dunsan branch of Rolling Pasta in Daejeon, there were quite a lot of people probably because it was on a weekend and Valentine’s day. The restaurant is also very strict in complying with the social distancing rules and other health protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Thus, they only allow a maximum of 4 persons in one table and you would have to use QR code or list down your name upon entry. Additionally, your body temperature will also be checked by a scanner before you can dine in.

Rolling Pasta is open daily from 11:30 AM to 9:00 PM, with a break time from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. But note however that its operating hours may be shortened due to COVID-19 restrictions in the city.
