Some dear friends took us to the Pastini Pastaria on 2027 SE Division in Portland, Oregon. This restaurant had a simple, but pleasant atmosphere. The staff was friendly. The manager was on the front lines when other staff were busy. She took our drink and bread order. She was full of smiles and was glad that we had come.
I had the pasta pomodoro, which was filled with fresh ingredients including the freshest tomatoes. I love strong garlic and could easily taste the garlic in the angel hair pasta. The garlic bread was superb with a great crunch. Each bite had its own unique blend of flavors.
The staff checked on us numerous times to be sure we had enough beverage, that everything tasted OK, and that we had everything that we needed.
This restaurant is a great family dining experience even though it isn't on the high end of prices. I still love the simplicity of the atmosphere and the elegance of the flavors!
