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

I recently visited La Pastaria and really wasn't all that impressed. I'll start with the good... I like that it's a BYOB, and the atmosphere was very inviting and lively. However, the food really wasn't that good. The calamari was chewy and the breading was falling off of it, and the chicken dish I had was so bad, I only... More

This byob was spot on with our party of 15. From the moment we arrived we were seated and taken care of. We started with a selection of appetizers of which the sausage meatballs I found to be awesome. The spinach malfatti was a close second and something new with a delicate balance of spinach and ricotta. The grouper provincial... More

Have dined here a number of times and have never had a bad meal. Love the fact that you can order two sizes of your meal, which in my case leaves room for a wonderful desert. It does get crowed.
