Chose Pastorante from online reviews since I haven't been in Harrisburg in many years. We ate relatively early, so the place was nearly empty and the service was good. It did get very busy later with the Friday evening crowd. I ordered from the restaurant...More

Wanted to try this place after reading about it in the local paper. Worth the trip! Fantastic food. But don't forget to BYOB! All the pasta is made fresh daily, served al dente (firm to the bite - never soggy). We started with their Meatball...More
