“Great Italian fare in Downtown Boulder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Great service and good basic Italian food. Ambience is great Winter and Summer. Can be a bit noisy and parking can be tricky in Downtown area.

“Sooooo good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Pasta Jay's is a great little place to eat Italian. My one and only complaint would be how much garlic they use. Other than that, portions are big, food is amazing, and it's fun people watching since it is on the end of the Pearl St Mall.

“It was average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

I went Sat. March 1st. Luckily we made a reservation as it was quite crowded. The appetizer we had was the artichokes/spinach melt w/bread and it was very good. Two of us ordered Manicotti. Not good. Hard pasta on the top, tried to flip it over and it was gummy on the underside. Sauce wasn't that tasty. I wouldn't order that again. A friend had gnocchi w/Alfredo sauce. Tasty but floating in butter. Service was good and friendly.

“Plenty of Calories and Fat, Just a Tad of Taste”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Pasta Jay's makes the Cheese Cake Factory look like a diet restaurant. Everything is smothered in goopy cheese and creamy sauces. Honestly, if you want to consume that much dairy fat, why not cut out the middle man and just eat a stick of butter?

“Great pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

We only had a cheese pizza, but it was excellent. The service was snappy. The atmosphere casual and relaxing. The value good. What else could you want? Nothing.
