The place was busy for a Monday night, but it could be because they have an extended happy hour. The inside of the restaurant is very cute. Service was excellent, fast, and attentive. The problem was the food. Nothing wrong with it, just a bit...More

Went in to satisfy our Italian food craving and were pleasantly surprised how much we loved the food here. Great sauce and great meatballs (I can be very picky).

Excellent food. Great indoors/outdoors atmosphere. My daughter and I shared a Caesar salad (regular size), an order of garlic bread, and an entree (stuffed portobello mushroom). We both had a glass of red Sangria that was freshly made. Prices were very reasonable and food enjoyable.

Walking Pearl Street with street performers and unique shops is fun in and of itself. Pasta Jays provided atmosphere and good eats along the way. Kids enjoyed their meals as well. Not too expensive either. Worth the visit despite the tiny bathroom!

I know they have a wonderful outdoor area to eat and there are Dogs every where. I do not think you would have a problem. The food is GREAT and so was the service!

We had a great meal but things go wrong in any restaurant. Some don't match our expectations for comping when this happens & I usually won't return.
