We were in Pawley's Island for the day. I had five children with me. A local suggested Pastaria to us as a value plus quality restaurant for us to visit. Long story short, the waitress was so short with us, even my oldest daughter commented on it when we left. The children's menu listed chicken strips as a meal for... More

I appreciate your comments about our children's menu and will take them under advisement. As upset as you seem to be, I am surprised and frustrated that you did not request to speak to a manager or owner before you left the restaurant so we might have had an opportunity to try to remedy the situation for you and your...

My first trip to Pastaria 811 was much more than I expected. The lunch menu was very reasonable and the selections were nice. I choose the Moggia Chicken salad and it was very tasty. The house balsamic dressing was very good as were the abruzzi tomatoes. The chicken was cooked and seasoned perfectly!

My Family and I went there last night. The waitress seemed nice and it fell further and further apart from there. The food was not that good, but honestly not bad enough to complain initially. We mentioned that the lettuce in a salad did not seem as fresh as it could have been which was then followed by the manager... More

We go often for the excellent food and reasonable lunch menu. This time, however, we went with another couple for dinner. At 6:30 we had immediate booth seating and the wait staff was prompt and friendly.Extensive menu. Enjoyed the house wine ($5.50) and a glass of Five Roses rose $8.00. Ordered two appetizers: Calamari (ours was good, have had better,... More

Pastaria 811 is an excellent meal choice in Pawleys. Located right on Hwy 17, it's easy to access and impossible not to enjoy.
