“No-nonsense and always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

It puts on no airs, and every one of the eight or ten pasta dishes I've tried over many visits has been no less than satisfying, and some (the spaghetti carbonara, for instance) are excellent. The wines are good, the service is fast and friendly, the portions are just right, and the prices are reasonable -- to me, the model of a good neighborhood restaurant, even though it's a chain.

“Excellent Pasta, Great Wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

After a long day of meetings our group of 8 was able to enjoy excellent pasta, local beer and wine in an eclectic warm atmosphere. The appetizers: brushetta, hummus, and an artichoke dip were devoured. Meal portions were generous and of excellent flavor. Our vegetarian in the group felt that she had many selections. We were seated without a wait and the staff was friendly and attentive.

“Loved this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I recently spent a week in the Portland area with family. We found this restaurant on my GPS restaurant guide as close by where we were staying and gave it a try. We went on a Tuesday night and got a table right away. The service was great and staff very nice. The food was really good and not expensive at all. We liked it so much we went back on Friday night and had the same experience, just a couple minutes to get a table, which on a Friday, I think is great! I recommend this place to anyone who loves Italian.

Pastini's is excellent. The food is great and the service makes you feel like you are in Italy. A very enjoyable dinner.

“Neighborhood feel with fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Pasta-based menu in a warm, intimate space. Both the fish and meat dishes were delicious and the service was prompt and friendly but not cloying. We arrived at 5 pm on a Monday and all of the tables were filled by 5:30 with folks who could have easily been from the neighborhood. Servings were plentiful and the crusty bread so good, extra servings were listed as an appetizer. Not particularly expensive and well worth seeking it out. Highly recommended!
