Have eaten here several times for lunch during work week. Excellent specials. Quick service. Love the goat cheese salad with cranberries. An all time favorite of several of us who work in Summit.

The dining room can be a little noisy, but we always enjoy our meals at La Pastaria. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere like family.

We've had gatherings following funerals there, have had team dinners for the Summit HS catered from there, have enjoyed dinners there with family from out of town, and dined there every year for Christmas Eve dinner.

The risotto balls appetizer was delicious. The baked shrimp was a tad too oily to be considered perfect, but it was still very good. The person I was with had the pork chops, which were delicious. Overall, a great experience, and I will certainly be back.

All in all a very nice experience. The waiter seemed liked he was in a bad mood, but the food was fantastic and we got everything we ordered within a short time:-). I would go there again anytime.
