We stopped here for HH the other day, one reason was because it was at the starting line of a race. One drink ordered was an Italian cream soda. It's only $4 and is decadence in a glass. We had several comments and questions on it. Food looked good but we did not eat. Would return.

We are staying in Boulder for two weeks as a break from our 12 month USA road trip and decided to have dinner at Pasta Jays on Friday night. As we were staying in a house just up the road we walked down and by the time we got to Pasta Jays there was a number of people waiting for... More

We didn't actually visit the restaurant but they catered my daughter's wedding in Estes Park, CO. They arrived on time, had to climb stairs to the deck where they set up. Food was great; chicken Parmesan, rosemary rolls, a tasty mixed salad of mixed greens, garbanzos, black olives, mozzarella, rigatoni marinara, roasted potatoes and roasted broccoli and cauliflower. They were... More

My wife and I had a enjoyed a late lunch today at Pasta Jay's. The service was excellent, and the food was very good. The open air atmosphere was very comfortable. My wife had a glass of their house Chianti and she said it was very nice. The worst part of the experience was the poor parking. We parked on... More

Our family had dinner here on our recent stay in Boulder. We had a nice little table in the front windows with awesome views of the Flatirons. The open air feel and breeze was just perfect! Husband and I both had the "J on the Rocks" drink special...x2 :) My eggplant parmesan was filling and delicious. Hubby had chicken alfredo... More

The staff was friendly and was good at refilling our drinks. The food was ok, though the pasta wasn't of the greatest quality. They had a big selection though.

Jay's is my go-to restaurant for great Italian food. Interior is charming, outside patio has great views and food is consistently good. Servings are large, so sharing is a good idea unless you are very hungry. Sit outside if you like being in the middle of Pearl Street pedestrian traffic, or inside if you want a little distance. In the... More

I loved this place. I went during lunch, so the restaurant was open on all sides allowing the summer breeze to come in. The service was fine, garlic bread was satisfying, but the baked tortellini was to die for!

Colorful and lively Past Jay's food is excellent. I had a sampler of their Eggplant Parmigiana, Chicken Parmigiana and one other wonder dish. Wow. The presentation and flavors matched the colorful decor. Service was great. Unless they have a quiet area somewhere in the restaurant that I hadn't noticed, I wouldn't choose this for a quiet intimate meal.

Love how warm and cozy this restaurant is especially in the winter! Can be a long wait on those busier nights but it's always worth it. We enjoy the garlic bread (A LOT) and also love the salads before our main meals. Overall just a nice place to eat.
