I ate at Pasta Jay's three times on a recent Moab trip. The food was solid. The place is a bit chaotic and crowded. I ate three times because my 10 year old begged me. He says it is the best pasta in the world.

Our food was great! Our server was very attentive and nice, and offered very good suggestions. Would definitely go back.

As soon as you walk into Pasta Jay’s the aroma of Italian food was heavenly. We ordered manicotti and chicken parmigiana – both excellent! Service was very quick and the food arrived at our table extremely hot. Portion size was great. Highly recommend this restaurant in Moab!

Jays provides a variety of pastas with 3-4 sauce options, plus pizza. The food works, but is not awesome. I actually got gluten free penne (not listed on the menu, but we asked), but I doubt the kitchen avoids cross contamination and am sure the was at least a trace of flour in the sauce. Given the limited access to... More

Hard to order anything bad at this place. Pastas and sauces are yummy!! My favorite oven baked dish, is the gnocchi with carbonara cream sauce. Patio options for good people watching in the warmer months. This place is always busy, but service is prompt and prices reasonable.

Solid quality, rustic Italian dishes and friendly atmosphere. Large menu for plenty of choices, and excellent tiramisu. Could be busy around 6-7pm, so there is some waiting time. But we never waited more than 10-15 min.

We had dinner here - standard well-prepared American style Italian food very appropriate for a diverse tourist market next to a national park (i.e., not trendy cuisine you might encounter in a chic place in Milan) but still very good and tasty. What really grabbed our attention was the exceptional service by everyone. Time and again all our desires were... More

We pretty much always make it to Pasta Jays for dinner when in Moab. The price is over inflated and the service seems to have slacked the last 4-5 times. However the food is good and even with a large party they manage to get you seated in a timely manner.

We had dinner one night and it was so good we came back for lunch the next day. I had the spaghetti and sausage with garlic bread which was good. The next day had their thin crust pepperoni and sausage pizza.

We go to Pasta Jays every time we visit Moab. I would personally rather eat here than any other Italian restaurant in this state (Olive Garden, Johnny Carinos, etc) everything I've ever ordered has been amazingly prepared. Food always comes out hot and in generous portion sizes. I got a thin crust pizza this last time and was not disappointed... More
