We stopped by Pastini Pataria towards the end of the night to enjoy some pasta and cocktails. We were seated immediately and our food came out really quick! I enjoyed one of my all time favorites, Pesto Pasta while my wife enjoyed a delicious Butternut Squash Ravioli. For dessert we enjoyed an amazing gelato sundae that definitely made the night!...

It's always difficult to rate a restaurant after only one visit and Pasting is worth a second trip. We were wandering around downtown and stopped in for lunch which, overall, was pretty good although not especially distinguished. I had spaghetti with meat sauce which I enjoyed but, it's a pretty basic dish. The service was fine and the portions were... More

We had a lovely Valentine's Dinner here. After being seated at a two-small table, our server graciously moved us to a much larger and more comfortable table. The food was outstanding as was our server, Nicole. Cappuccino would have made the evening perfect.

Like most travelers, I like to eat at Italian/pasta places when I'm on vacation. While spending some time in downtown Portland recently, we came across this location and decided to give it a try. The reviews were good, the place looked nice, and the people seemed to be enjoying the food. First, the service was fantastic. The young lady that... More

Quick pasta restaurant, garlic bread was cold. Lunch sized pasta was very small. Mista salad was huge with lots of mescali. Fast service.

We were fortunate to get a seat within 30 minutes for dinner - we ordered the pasta (spaghetti & meatballs and carbonara). Delicious - Portland has an amazing group of restaurants that serve wonderful food. The portions were big and the service was wonderful. We highly recommend Pastini to anyone needing an Italian fix.

This place was a great little find right across from our hotel. Very casual place but comfy and good food, not that marinara-out-of-a-jar type of place and not so fancy that you can't find anything for the kids to eat. The pasta with chicken piccata was delicious along with the garlic bread. Finished it off with the tiramisu- perfect! Service... More

Met a relative for lunch on a weekday. Kale and apple salad followed up with the rigatoni zuccati is my favorite and it was superbly done again. The healthy salad balanced with the delightful entree of roasted butternut squash, rigatoni, and cheese makes a wonderful lunch. I've visited locations at Bridgeport and SE Portland and all have demonstrated the same... More
