I ate there several times while visiting the area. I thought the food was good,but average. The service was very good and the restaurant setting pleasant. Overall I would recommend it.

We stopped into Pasta Jay's while visiting. We sat on the patio as the weather was nice. Our waitress was attentive even though we were the only table in the patio area. Our food came quickly, with large servings and was delicious. I will be back and will recommend this location to my friends.

My favorite dish is the gnocchi with tomato cream sauce, excellent. Their marinara sauce is very good, so I guess it would go good with any of the pastas. I was not impressed with their eggplant parmesan, it is 3 or 4 small rounds laid out side by side on the plate with some motzarella on top, looked like something... More

I had Alfredo pasta with chicken. Cost around ten dollars plus drink. We ate here after riding slickrock and it hit the spot. Second time eating here and I still received great service. Will go back again.

Just finished eating dinner here. Food was good and arrived quickly. Service - very friendly. Kid's dishes were adequately priced ;-) Very relaxed atmosphere - this is definitely not the most sophisticated place, but who cares?

Our last night in Moab we wanted to have a nice Italian dinner. We were seated right away--mostly because the reviews said we needed to be there super early or we would have to wait in line. Once seated the service was freaky fast. The menu is huge and we hardly had time to look at it before we were... More

Thanks for a great meal after a long day running around Moab! I highly recommend Pasta Jay's. Eggplant Lombardi and Lasagna were great. Friendly service, decent atmosphere and good Italian. If this was in NYC, I'd give it three stars because it would be average in that environment. Here, in the middle of the desert, I give it five stars.... More

We visited Pasta Jays on a Wednesday night. We were seated right away. Service was friendly and QUICK. This could be good or bad, depending on what you want. If you're looking for a slow, leisurely dinner, you might want to tell them up front. They turn tables (which are arranged pretty close together) fast. The food was wonderful. I... More
