A dinner enjoyed by all

Party of four and everyone agreed the food and salads were excellent. Real cute place and prices are very reasonable. Noise, cramped quarters and at so-so service have to be tolerated. We all would return.

This was my first visit to this lively and popular restaurant. Service was god. Our waitress Paige was attentive and professional. The food was good. Try the chicken and spinach dumplings. I recommend reservations. There was a long line of people waiting to get in at 7 PM on a summer Saturday. A few warnings it is very loud inside,and... More

We had an early reservation for 7 people on a Thursday night. The waitress sat us and we asked for water and a picture and she said she'd be right back. 15 minutes later we had to flag her down .... there was one other table in the restaurant at the time. We had a few questions while ordering and... More

Food is delicious and the owner is always gracious and welcoming. An especially favorite time is going on a night when the Catapano brothers are playing...they do a great Marvin Gaye!

We were a party of six with a 6:00 PM reservation on a Saturday night. We were greeted and promptly seated as soon as we entered. The waiter took his time coming over which was fine with us as we hadn't seen each other in a long time and were able to catch up on old times. Service was wonderful... More

I was wrong We were finally seated at 8:35 at a table that would normally fit 6 people. We were squeezed in so tight we were touching leg and shoulder to the person next... More

Celebrated my birthday at La Pastaria Restaurant in Red Bank, New Jersey. This restaurant was recommended by the other couple we were with. The prices were reasonable. The BYOB feature is very nice. Our waitress was excellent!! We ordered various appetizers, entrees and pasta dishes. The size of the portions were very large. My husband and I ordered the "Sunday... More

I had lunch yesterday and had the best eggplant parmesan one could ask for. The "gravy" or sauce as some call it is fantastic. I've been to all the Italian restaurants in Red Bank and this one seems to top them all. You can bring your own bottle of wine and not worry about the "triple" mark up. It appears... More
