“Take out OK.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2010

I just ordered takeout. I had to ask for flat ware. I was staying at a nearby hotel and grabbed it to go. It didn't take too long and was packaged well. For the price I thought the portion was quite small although the hazelnut, gorgonzola ravioli was tasty. The bread that was included was inedible.

The atmosphere seemed nice even though I didn't eat in. I would come back. Portion might be larger in house. There was a nice waiting area in the lobby.

“Definitely fills a need in Corvallis”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2009

Pastini is a chain pasta restaurant much like the Olive Garden, but a step up. Nonetheless, Pastini manages to consistently cook pretty good pasta (the same can't be said about the bread and many of the sauces, unfortunately). The place is by no means a fine dining experience, and is a bit overpriced for the quality and quantity of food served. However, Pastini DEFINITELY fills a need in this town, which entirely lacks decent Italian food aside from Pizza. No wonder the place is almost always crowded.

“Newest Italian Restaurant in town...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2009

I can now say that I've eaten Italian food all the way from Venice, Italy to Sorrento, Italy to Corvallis, OR. I love Pastini's! Very nice wait staff and excellent food. I always feel like they put the customer first and they have great portions for the kids too! They have many traditional Italian dishes, some americanized. I love the Gnocci with the creamy pesto sauce. (It's not on the menu but they will let you switch pastas, on request, sometimes costs extra.) They can be very fast, but they can also do the "slow" Italian meal on request.
