We were looking for an Italian joint for our family dinner. We chose this place because of it's location. We were seated and realized right away that the seating was a little tight the way they had it set up. We really didn't have enough...More

It is no coincidence that Il Pastaio is always packed with happy customers. It offers a wide selection of vegetarian, meat and seafood dishes, great soups and wonderful bread. Make a reservation or be prepared to wait in line.
