About
Inspired by the farms, vineyards and waters of the Pacific Northwest, we at Pastini are dedicated to serving up two of life’s greatest pleasures… pasta and wine. We love how a steaming bowl of pasta warms your hands as well as your spirits. We love the sound a cork makes when it nudges away from the bottle. Using responsibly sourced ingredients, we craft craveable dishes with a local sensibility that is true to our roots. Our thoughtfully curated wine list celebrates both stellar Northwest wineries, and small family-owned vineyards in Italy. With every meal, we aim to bring our guests together to share made-from-scratch meals that are seasoned with laughter and great wine.

We had a wonderful lunch, sitting outside. The staff was helpful and everyone wore masks- we felt safe. The food is excellent Italian- I had meatballs and pasta, which is my favorite. We will be back.

Everything we tried here was fabulous, but the mac and cheese with bacon was the crowd favorite. Quick service, pleasant staff. We were too full to try dessert but they looked good.

Polite, quality service. Clean and warm. Bolgnese Pasta prepared al dente', ant not smothered with sauce. Just like Italy.Special bruschetta, complete with enormous slices of grilled bread with tapenade and tomato, very, very good. Appetizer of scampi is clean and buttery.

I had a free entry coupon, so I decided to try this place again, my prior experience was at best mediocre. WHAT A DIFFERENCE.' The waitress said all my choices were good, so I decided on the Mac&Cheese, and now I have a place to...get that dish since Jake's Grill stopped offering it. A bit more liquid than I like, but great sharp taste,(I did not get bread crumbs). The garlic bread was perfect too. They made me fresh coffee and gave me a refill in a large cup. Everyone seemed friendly and happy.More

We were at the hotel across the street and pasta sounded good so we tried it out on a busy Friday. We got seated quickly and got started with an antipasto platter that was very good. I kept it simple with spicy sausage spaghetti that...I enjoyed quite a lot. My wife was not as happy with the linguini pesto pollo, which could have been really good with better seasoned chicken. She felt it was a bit bland for a dish featuring pesto. Overall, though, it was good, but not great. The concierge at our hotel said that people used to complain about the place, but reports were getting better in the recent past.More

Ate here while visiting family. We were able to get a table quickly without making a reservation. Food was fresh and no one disliked their order. It was crowded when we were there but we never felt rushed to eat and the waiter was outstanding....He displayed the correct balance of attentiveness and we all really appreciated that trait. Definitely the spot to go if you are craving Italian food in Portland. Prices were fair and I really like the side option of various olives to sample.More

Cute little restaurant. Probably one of the best Italian meals I have had in a long time. I’m gluten free and their gluten free pasta was excellent. My friends pasta was also excellent and their lasagne was awesome. Tiramisu was one of the best. Got...to go and try it all.More

Fourth or fifth meal at Pastini’s. All were exceptional. Pasta was cooked well, meatballs were tasty and sauces were perfect. Gluten free options available. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Will return every time I visit Portland.

This restaurant was about 2 blocks from the Hilton where we were staying. Nice bread pasta, and wine all for a very reasonable price. Would recommend.

I didn't expect much but mushy penne and inferior cheese is too much, especially for Italian restaurant. We left all the food and the waitress didn't bother to ask why..

I would definitely NOT reserve a large party at Pastini's. Their restaurant is loud and the ambiance not that great at that location (nor most of the other Pastini's locations). The service we encountered there was also not... More
