So where can you get free pasta on National Pasta Day? We’ve got the scoop on the no-cost (or at least deliciously low-cost) spaghetti splendor.

Buca di Beppo

Buca di Beppo isn’t just celebrating National Pasta Day. Nope. They’re all in for World Pasta Month (October). Along with four new main course options, the Italian restaurant also three new apps. But wait, that’s not all. Visit their website and enter to win a six-day trip to Northern Italy for you and your guest. Now that’s some serious pasta-eating!

Carrabba’s Italian Grill

For one day only (Oct. 17), Carrabba’s is offering your choice of $10 pastas. Which pasta dishes is the eatery including in this low-cots deal? Try their spaghetti pomodoro, linguine positano or penne alfredo. Yum!


Guests at Eataly NYC Flatiron can enjoy a three-week long pasta celebration. From Oct. 1-21 you can dine on special pasta dishes and try out complimentary pasta tastings.


Pick up a box of Signature Select Pasta Oct. 17. Oh, but there’s a catch. You need to say, “Lots a Pasta” at the register to redeem this offer. (Seriously.)

Maggiano’s Little Italy

The restaurant’s Today & Tomorrow Pasta deal lets you buy a pasta to eat-in and take one home for free. And the best part is…this deal isn’t just on National Pasta Day!

Olive Garden

Of course you’re going to Olive Garden for your pasta faves. Even though they don’t have a freebie for National Pasta Day, you can still dine on the “Never Ending Pasta Bowl” for $10.99. And who doesn’t like a never-ending bowl of pasta?
