Pasta Yeas at Pasta Jays

Really good food with diverse and ample menu options. Vegetarian friendly. Outdoor seating available, but the dining room is also cheery and informal.

Wife & I dined here in Moab, Utah and found this to be a great value. Some of the best Italian food and a reasonable price ($10-$20 per plate). The portions were almost too much to eat at one sitting and the taste was some of the best Italian food we have had. Just wished we had dined here sooner,... More

The food was very good for the value. But like most places the portions are too big. We shared a wonderful garden salad and a pasta plate. There was no extra charge for sharing.

I really enjoyed eating here because the pasta was flavorful and the people were kind and served the food very fast. On the other hand it was very pricey so if you're on a strict diet or a budget I wouldn't recommend this place

We were traveling and hoping for a nice Italian dinner. Atmosphere was nice, we ate outside on the patio and they were very busy which usually indicates it's very good. But, the ravioli my husband ordered had too heavy a tomato sauce on it and was not very authentic. I had a chicken dish with linguini. It was very tasty... More

Everything was just ok which wouldn't be a big deal except they charge more than they should for pasta in Moab. Me thinks Jay just wanted an excuse to sneak away from Boulder to Moab sometimes. Heard the Boulder joint is better.

Wide variety of Italian food. Flirts with trying to be an upscale Italian restaurant but doesn't quite make it. Food was delicious but not an overly great value for your money.

This is a classic in Moab -- great food for 20 years. You can't go wrong with anything you order. We love the pasta shells and the seafood linguini ... and of course the lasagna.

Hard to please pizza eaters were pleasantly surprised... long wait for service but decent pizza... friendly & could have a beer with the meal.
