Glad we stopped in....

We went here for the first time. We were a party of 4. We had a 6:45pm reservation on a Saturday. Before coming here we stopped at the Wine Loft in Long Branch for appetizers and drinks.. The perfect outing is to stop at the Wine Loft and see Kirby who is the best bartender we have ever came... read more

Truly one of the worst dining experiences have ever had. Waitress was so incredibly RUDE- actually making faces because I was not ready to order fast enough then arguing with me over what I had ordered, while ignoring the table the rest of the evening. Just doesn't get what being in a service oriented business is about! I, nor any... More

The food is very different. The stuffed escarole is amazingly good. On Friday and Sat evening they have a singer. It's fun when we all chime in to sing. The owner of the restaurant is very pleasant and sweet.

We returned with family last week to LaPastaria. I reviewed this restaurant before and I am happy to say that the service and food continues to be outstanding! Since we brought family with us, (party of 12) I was concerned with the quality. Everyone said that the portions were large and very tasty! We were never looking for our waitress.... More

Not the best and not the worst. Our server was more interested in drinking with the guests (that's right - he had seven shots with another table - I COUNTED) then focusing his efforts on service. Food was good. I like the ability to order wine from the store and having it delivered to the restaurant. Very favorable; however I... More

I really like this restaurant , but it seems to have hit and miss types of days ? Sometimes it's really good and others not so much . When it's full it is really loud and seems hectic . But it is local and the service people are very good . The food is usually good as well ,and it... More

Really wanted to "like" this place, but can't recommend it. A few good dishes, but too many disappointments. Antipasto dumplings were superb - with a savory sauce, but downhill from there. Bread on the table was squarish chunks of lifeless "Italian" and a red-tinted bread with no discernible flavor. Pesto sauce made with rancid olive oil - seriously. Carbonara gummy... More

Stopped here for lunch. Very quiet and nice lunch menu. Lasagna was delicious. BYOB so remember to bring yours. They put our white on ice and this worked well. Desserts excellent. I would try this again but a night for their expanded menu.

I went here for the first time today with my two sister-in-laws. The restaurant was small but cozy. We all ordered soup and salad for lunch. We all had the butternut squash soup which we all found to be sweet rather than savory and I don't think any of us liked it very much. My sister-in-laws both had the pumpkin... More

We've been coming here for years! I absolutely love the food & the atmosphere. The pumpkin lasagna which is a special in the fall is my favorite & I always order it for my birthday dinner. Always consistent & a great BYOB!!
