This was a great small scale Italian restaurant chain. This location closed at the end of 2016. According to the media reports, the owners notified the employees that their employment was terminated with no notice. Sounds like rotten treatment of a staff that had done...More

Italian food but not really. The chicken parm was breaded well and not overcooked but the sauce was thin and a bit greasy

love, love, love their spinach side, charming wines in a small glass and delicious yummy pastas. The décor is charming, service is consistently polite, informative and Pomodoro prices are more than fair. A light fair to a hungry family won't be disappointed. skc

Pasta P. is a place I dine now and then. I rate it very good taking into consideration the QPR - quality to price ratio. In fact, it is probably the best QPR of any Italian restaurant in the East Bay. The College Avenue location...More
