Very good food but very noisy

We were celebrating my mother-in-law's 90th Birthday with a group of 12. We had a table in the main dining room, and could barely hear each other. The food was very good, and plentiful. Half of us took home doggie bags. The shrimp dishes were delicious. 3 salads were ample for the group. We... read more

If you want an inexpensive tasty lunch but won't be engaging in conversation - this is a good place for you. With a varied Italian lunch menu, ranging from salads, sandwiches and pastas to different personal-size pizzas, you can't go wrong. The food is very tasty and obviously very fresh. However, if you are coming here to catch up with... More

Stopped in for dinner. Greated with a friendly smile from hostess and waitress. Food was good and priced very reasonable. So much to chose from. Loved the pasta and red sauce.

We stopped in for a meal two nights in a row. The soups are delicious! Manhattan seafood chowder - with plenty of seafood; lentil and pumpkin bisque. Our group tried them all and each was delicious. The service was outstanding. The veal Parma was served on a large platter holding a plentiful portion. Located two blocks from the DeBary Inn,... More

Indoors or outdoors this is a comfortable and very pleasant location with a great variety of pastas, salads, seafood and poultry. I recently had dinner on the outside front seating area which was very pleasant for an October evening. The do not offer wine but several local stores are very good - collection and price - and Pastaria does not... More

I wish I could give it 3.5 stars. Stopped by here for lunch with a company 5 and made reservations ahead of time. After entering the restaurant we were seated quickly and had our beverage order taken along with warm bread being brought out. At the table, there was already small plates with an olive oil and herb mixture on... More

Always really good Italian food. Service is good but sometimes you have to wait and it can be a bit noisy. The veal parmigiana is unbelievable.

Every now and then, I have a yen for their black linguine with peas and calamari. Each time I go it is always consistent and always very very good. While I wait for that steamy plate to be placed in front of me, I gorge myself on their slightly salty, but very delicious focaccia. Always consistent, always delicious. What more... More

Great Italian food with a Romanist atmosphere. The pricing is reasonable for the quality of the food. The menu is extensive from pizza to a gourmet meal. It's BYB
