“Goodbye Macaroni Grill - Hello Pastina !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Enjoyed a great dinner at the Beaverton location. Each of us ordered a different entree, and each one was excellent. They also have a couple of specialty drinks as part of an insert in the menu for $7.50 and I chose one of those. While the drink was very good, the alcohol content was largely missing. I would stick with wine the next time. My lasagna was just right in both portion size, temperature at serving and the amount of marinara sauce. Salads are large but not overly so. The portion sizes left us full but not "stuffed."

Wait staff was moving quickly and efficiently with a full house. Ours was constantly smiling as he took care of our table. He advised us he was taking a short break, and while he was gone another server "adopted us" to make sure any needs were met. Our server knew the items we ordered very well and could describe exactly what we would be served.

The kitchen area at this location is open to be seen by the entire dining area. Deserts are reasonably priced and portioned.

We had a booth and they are built with wooden bench style seats (with wooden back). These are not comfortable to sit in for very long. At dinner time with a full house, the noise level is quite high and you must speak loudly to be heard across the table.

“OK Pasta. Small portions”

Small portion of pasta dish. Flavor was pretty good. Service was indifferent. Not good enough for me to return

“Must go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Italian food at Olive Garden? Pfft! You need to try Pastini Pastaria! Have always had good service and the food is great also. Fusili ala Roma is my recommendation along with a Mona Lisa drink. You can't go wrong eating here...!

“Great Italian food for a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. I chose it based on it having favourable TripAdvisor reviews. It was just right for us... affordable wine, good food and friendly service.We wanted to sit in the outdoor patio, which turned out to be not so great, as we were on the sidewalk right alongside one of the main roads through the shopping mall, thus a lot of noisy traffic. Try to get a table further from the road, or eat inside. When we ordered 2 glasses of wine, our friendly helper suggested that we order a bottle. We said that we didn't think we could finish it, but she told us that we could take the unused wine home... that came as a surprise for us Canadians. I had the Pasta Spaghetti & Spicy Sausage... it was just right. All in all, a nice evening out for not a lot of money

“Good not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

I have been here twice in the past few weeks. I had the Lasagna both times and it was good but not great. I also tried the shrimp appetizer which was good. I would like to try their desserts some time, they look tasty. I also had their berry refresher drink which was good but the end of it had too much ginger flavor. It is a nice place but not supper great and a little pricey.
