Reliable italian

We've always enjoyed pasta jays the only real problem is the wait. They won't seat incomplete parties and are prone to underestimating the wait times. I enjoyed the lobster Mac and cheese last time and would go back for it

For a place being completely packed on a cold monday night it left me perplexed. Service was horrible, seating is cramped they had a bar but did not have a knowledgeable bar tender. The food I was served (Pasta Madeline) had absolutely NO seasoning. The chicken was way over cooked and had the appearance of being boiled. It also had... More

Fun Italian restaurant. The owner has taken pride in the staff and they are all super friendly. Expect them ALL to say goodbye as you leave:) The Italian food is terrific. My husband's favorite place in the neighborhood. He kept telling about the eggplant dish he had two weeks in a row. I finally had a chance to go on... More

Some colleague's and I stopped at Pasta Jay's recently and had a great experience. I had a dish with ravioli, manicotti, and tortellini, and it was to die for! On top of that they gave us outstanding garlic bread that was perfect for sopping up the extra sauce. Others in our party loved their food as well. It was so... More

Yum! We rolled the dice and picked a winner! Reminded me of the old Italian restaurants if my youth, Big bowl of pasta with meatballs and garlic bread, nothing fancy but presented well and delicious. Excellent service and reasonable price to boot.

We heard from our waitress at the hotel we were staying at this place was great and the reviews on the other sites concurred. At first told there was an hour wait, but we sat outside under the heaters and were served in minutes. Great drinks, delicious marinara sauce. Great way to start a trip to Boulder!

Okay, so I live about 6 blocks away on Broadway, My dad and sister walked down and put our name on the list, the staff would call when there was a table. The wait was for 15 minutes. 45 minutes later, we hadn't been called. We go back, people with 3 put their names down 20 minutes after us HAD... More
