Had a little trouble finding a luncheon place open for Sunday lunch after a hike at Arches National Park. We were really hungry and found Pasta Jay's open for a late lunch. We ordered the mushroom, black olive pizza and salads. Wow. the pizza was really the best ever with the NY style thin crust. Yes, and to our delight... More

Good, garlicky food. The special board always attracts me and I'm never disappointed. The place gets very busy during the season and can be pretty noisy. The food is good, well prepared, and the quantity never leaves you hungry.

We were finding it challenging to come across a a good restaurant that specialised in pasta, but when we saw this option in Moab, we thought it would fit the bill. The service was great, as was the quantity and quality of the pasta. The only point to note were the menus, which were set out in a most confusing... More

Although Pasta Jay's has been here for years, I think they've survived due to the high tourist traffic and lack of need to depend on repeat business. The food is OK, not great. The service is grim. Moab isn't really known for the quality of the service in town anywhere, but Pasta Jay's is especially sad. You can do better.

This was our 2nd visit here. It's definitely one of the better places in Moab. Sometimes there's a looooooooonnnnnnngggg wait, but it's a tourist town and if you hit it during dinner rush, you'll end up paying for it. Positive part about it is that you get to smell the food while you wait and you'll be extra hungry when... More

The restaurant was located next to our hotel. Solid service and food . It was easy to get in early then it became a bit crowded. Servers were friendly and quick.

We have dined here several times over many years. The food is always very good and the service is prompt. The portions are large and are so good they are almost impossible not to devour! After a long day of biking Pasta Jays is quite a treat. Our kids always loved it as well.

I had lunch at Pasta Jay's twice this week. I sort of stumbled upon the place the first time and was drawn back in by the amazing sausage.. The service is friendly and fairly attentive. My only beef is that they seem to sit people on top of each other in one corner, when the entire restaurant is wide open.... More

The food was very good and the portion sizes were definitely filling. We had Alfredo Williams, Spaghetti Dinner, Lasagna and Chicken Parmigiana. All of it was delicious. The restaurant was extremely busy and the service was good. The restaurant was clean. The staff was friendly especially Andrea our server.

We arrived on December 10, and everything was closed for the winter. We had a great pizza and salad, and the service was excellent.
