My wife and I return to La Pastaria whenever we want to enjoy traditional Italian fare in a friendly, relaxed environment. The restaurant is BYO, the food is very good, and the owner frequently stops by your table to get feedback - especially on any of the day's specials. This past week we stopped in with a nice bottle of... More

Been to La Pastaria several times and have not been disappointed. Celebrated my mom's 91st birthday there. They are very accommodating. Servers are great too: Jenn especially and Frank the manager.

We often go early on Friday before the crowd hits because they don't take reservations for small parties. In the summer we eat outside on the small patio. The decor inside and outside feels like Italy. (It also smells like the inside of a restaurant in Italy.) The salads are varied and tasty - big. The pasta dishes cooked al... More

Once again drove over an hour to La Pastaria in Ted Bank. Arrived about 7 pm on a Saturday night. No wait (just two of us). Our waitress (Jennifer) was so pleasant, professional and absolutely attentive! Service was excellent! We shared the pear salad (outrageous) and chicken parmigiana with linguine. Large portions. We had the chocolate cake with vanilla ice... More

My husband and I went to dinner here last week. It is BYOB. The broccoli soup was AMAZING. He had chicken parmesan and I had a pasta dish with tomatoes, mushrooms, pesto. All were delicious. Pretty reasonably priced for the Red Bank area. You will sit close to your neighbors so be prepared for that. We did not have a... More

La Pastaria has good old fashioned Italian food with a warm, vibrant atmosphere. Portions are substantial and great tasting. The menu has ample choices for all palates. The ambiance reflects the vitality and joie de vivre of the Italian people. This is the kind of restaurant that makes you want to come back again and again.

Terrific menu, but the preparation doesn't match up. Went to a movie in limited release in Red Bank, and we are not from there, so we had to find a place. There are many BYO options, but the menu here attracted our attention. One thing few restaurants have is a version of Spiedini alla Romana, pan fried mozzarella oozing out... More
