We had dinner with friends here last night. The rosemary bread was amazing! The fried calamari was cooked to perfection. And the grouper provencal was fantastic! I have had this dish here many times before but forgot to write about it. Our server, Frank, was also very gracious and accommodating. Great night!

Six of us (all friends) visited last night. My husband and I did not enjoy the restaurant at all. It's the first Italian place I've been to where we had to request bread. The waiter then brought a small basket of what appeared to be croutons but was actually some type of gummy bread niblets. Everything is a la carte... More

I have visited this establishment at least once a month or more since it opened some 20 years ago in its original location. Over the years my experiences with the food and staff have been up and down. I am sad to report that the trend is definitely and I fear irreversibly down. The food quality has deteriorated to a...

My wife and I return to La Pastaria whenever we want to enjoy traditional Italian fare in a friendly, relaxed environment. The restaurant is BYO, the food is very good, and the owner frequently stops by your table to get feedback - especially on any of the day's specials. This past week we stopped in with a nice bottle of... More

Been to La Pastaria several times and have not been disappointed. Celebrated my mom's 91st birthday there. They are very accommodating. Servers are great too: Jenn especially and Frank the manager.

We often go early on Friday before the crowd hits because they don't take reservations for small parties. In the summer we eat outside on the small patio. The decor inside and outside feels like Italy. (It also smells like the inside of a restaurant in Italy.) The salads are varied and tasty - big. The pasta dishes cooked al... More
