Went for lasagna, available only on Wednesdays. Three choices were available - traditional red sauce, white sauce and seafood. Did not try the white sauce, but would have if portions were not so large. The rest of the menu looked amazing as well. I saw this place in Moab, UT., but did not go. I wish I had now. I... More

Driving in from Denver, we stopped at Pasta Jay's while enjoying the shops along Pearl St. We couldn't have picked a better place to stop and eat! Walking in the atmosphere is bright and we were seated and helped right away. The meal arrived piping hot and was delicious! Warning...if you aren't a big fan of garlic, be sure to... More

Had evening meal here recently based on local recommendation. Monday night special was pasta which was available with sauce of your choice. Went down really well. I enjoyed the atmosphere, character and friendly / helpful staff. I would love the opportunity to return here again.

So we stopped in for dinner after a day of skiing at Eldora and before our drive back to Denver. We did not have reservations and they sat us pretty quick (family of 5) We recommend the house special lasagna and the homemade tortellini as it was really delicious! They portion sizes were family style and the price was very... More

I've been here maybe a dozen times, nothing to write home about, as far as the food is concerned. Staff is attentive and the atmosphere is well-built old-Italian. Good job there. Outside seating is nice, except in winter.

Delicious authentic Italian pastas with a modern twist just right for a cold winters day and after a morning trek up flagstaff

We visited Pasta Jay's the evening of the Stampede, CU vs. USC. It was very lively and noisy, but we got the back little nook table overlooking the stairs down to the basement nightclub. Great people watching with CU student in costume streaming into the club. The marching band stopped by to serenade the restaurant. We had the Minestrone Soup,... More

Looks great but the people who work here are awful. Everything tastes exactly the same. If in Boulder, go to a real restaurant not some hokey place that should be in a mall.

We stopped in for a late Sunday lunch and everything that we ordered was phenomenal! Our daughter had the kids mac and cheese, my husband the homemade ravioli, I had the buffalo ravioli, with a kids ice cream and a mint chocolate chip slice of pie for dessert, we loved everything! Noticed a few pizzas passing by and will order... More
