It is hard to complain about anything at Pasta Jay's. The selection is great. The food is very tasty. The service is good. The atmosphere and room is busy and happy. It is great place for a well priced and tasty past dinner with family and friends. On the main street of Moab, it is very easy to find.

Good location, friendly staff, nice facilities with outdoor seating available. The menu is extensive. Unfortunately, we did not find the taste outstanding - just average. Prices were acceptable. My husband did not think the sausage was very "Italian" but more like a banger.

there is a good variety on the menu. We had a hard time picking something. The waitress was helpful with suggestions. The food came out fast. The portions were bigger than I would prefer but since we had skipped lunch the large meal was just what we needed. The waitress was attentive. We enjoyed everything about our experience.

My husband is a chef and we don't go out to restaurants much. Our kids came to visit us in Moab and insisted they take us out. It was incredible...all four of us had something different and the meals were fabulous.

Admittedly don't go here a lot but i do like the submarine sandwich especially hot and gooey. If you like such things i would definitely suggest going. Often will order and take out but this last time i stayed at the restaurant. Service was nice and sat on the porch and watched the people go by.

Although the daily special of lasagne was off when we tried to order (items being off the menu was the consistent theme of our trip), we settled for the ravioli with meat sauce, which was really excellent. Along with that, we had some "burgundy" wine, because the Chianti was off (in an Italian restaurant....come on!!) Overall, though, it can't have... More

We didn't dine here, we only ordered a pizza to take out. The hostess was friendly, took our order quickly, and when the pizza was ready immediately brought it out to us. The pepperoni pizza was excellent. We didn't expect such a good tasting and well made pizza way out in the desert!

The food was plentiful and yummy. I had Jay's famous shells (baked and stuffed with ricotta and spinach) and my husband had the chicken and eggplant bake. We were both very happy diners! The waiting staff were all bubbly and charming and really contributed to the whole evening. I would recommend for an unpretentious dining experience.

Maybe it's because there is no other Italian restaurant within a few hours' drive. Or because the other pasta dishes in town are in places that specialize in other stuff? I don't know. But it's hard to see why else this place would be worth going to again for us. The lady's pasta was over cooked, and overwhelmed by giant... More
