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!!

La Pastaria represents one of the best dining values around. Whether in Summit or Red Bank, the atmosphere and menu choices making for an enjoyable dining experience. I've been a patron for a number of years and find the food quality and taste is very consistent. It is a BYOB with a reasonably priced menu. When combined with the delicious... More

Finally had the opportunity to visit the Red Bank restaurant. Although we were a group of ten without a reservation we were met with a warm smile and within minutes we were seated comfortably at our table. The decor was comfortable. Waiter was more than helpful. Menu was varied and luncheon specials provided nice options. House salad was more than... More

I have been going to La Pastaria for decades and have always had great food and great service. The decor is beautiful and the ambiance is very comfortable. The prices are very reasonable. This is one of my "go to" restaurants for a great experience. There are a lot of overpriced restaurants in Red Bank and some of them have... More

La Pasteria is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Red Bank. Emanuella uses her own recipes . . . the"Sunday gravy" for one. I love everything, from the fresh bread and olive oil when you sit down, to the delicious entrees, ending with cappuccino and a sinful dessert. BYOB The restaurant is warm and cozy, the wait staff is... More
