This place is literally 50 steps from my son's front porch. Patrick Halloran, owner and chef, combine fresh, locally sourced ingredients with some fine kitchen skills to make Italian magic. We went for lunch while visiting for Christmas. I scolded my son for not bringing us sooner. We had Gnocchi Arrabbiata, perfectly spicy. Prosciutto pizza, fried egg on top! Autunno... More

Located on Signal Mountain, just minutes above scenic downtown Chattanooga, TN, the Hummingbird Pastaria is a family-owned Italian restaurant that also offers a Kids Menu. The food is fresh and delicious, and the service is excellent. There is also a wonderful street-side patio with a covered tin roof which is delightful on a warm rainy afternoon or evening. My one...

Quaint restaurant with outstanding menu. I would recommend it with my highest recommendation. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and friendly. I set on the outdoor porch and it was beautiful. They have fresh pasta and different sauces, wood fired pizza, beautiful salads and appetizers as well as dessert! Recommend reservations.

When this review was written the Hummingbird only had a rating of 4.4, the service and food far exceeded even the 5.0 rating. This place is worth the drive.

Sadly, the good food was overwhelmed by the very poor service. Service has been a problem at this establishment for years. Hoping that it was resolved with the fairly recent revamp and renaming, we tried again. Consistently good food. This meal was no exception. Even though our level of interest in pasta varied greatly, everyone in the group thought the... More

The food was a delightful surprise. My husband had the lasagna and let me tell you, it was a large portion. you will be taking it home... More

I am a little nervous to say too many good things because it will be come too popular and I won't be able to get in here anymore. It is under new ownership and it went from an "ok" place to eat to a fantastic place to eat! Our little jewel on Signal Mountain.

If this restaurant can bring it's interior decor and exterior up to the level of its food, it could really be something special. With some effort, the outdoor patio could be lovely and creating more intimate areas in the single large dining room would help a lot. But the menu was so good it was difficult to decide what to...
