I had a good meal here, nothing exception. We were a party of 6, 4 of whom were repeaters (this restaurant is close to my granddaughter's college which makes it convenient). Service was very good.

Chicken Marsala most disappointing. Sauce was beige instead of the nice rich dark brown that I grew up on. Appetizer was ok but the bread was partially burnt. Service was just ok. I think our waiter thought we were bums because we were dressed very...More

Stopped in for lunch, had lasagna, butternut squash ravioli and garlic bread. All in all good. Service was really friendly. Nice place to stop after walking around the city.

We ordered take out and was a bit disappointed. Got back to the hotel and found they got the order wrong. What we did have was just OK.

I would definitely NOT reserve a large party at Pastini's. Their restaurant is loud and the ambiance not that great at that location (nor most of the other Pastini's locations). The service we encountered there was also not... More
