“We Loved The Food!”
Reviewed August 19, 2010

We walked to the restaurant from the Holiday Inn Express on Vaughn and it is in a nice area, vibrant. Lots of people shopping and walking in this area. I had pasta stuffed with fresh fish and it was just the best I have ever had. Absolutely yummy. My wife had pasta primavera with a side of squash and she loved her food as well.

“We were the center attraction, I think”
Reviewed April 22, 2010

It's not easy finding a good restaurant to take 10, including small children, without a reservation on a Friday evening. But Pastini Pastaria managed to work us into an assembled long table in the center of the restaurant. Bruschetta and antipasti (and microbrews) tided us over until the pasta dishes started arriving.
Everyone seemed pleased with their selections, including the 10-month-old, who managed to keep some of her spaghetti off the floor. We helped clean up around her and the restaurant crew remained amazingly pleasant throughout (don't know if the neighboring tables thought it was so cute).
Nowadays, we tend to think of all Italian restaurants as pizza palaces, but this bistro offers an impressive array of pasta dishes, along with salads and panini...no pizza. Fortunately, pasta is almost as popular with kids as pizza.
Thanks to the restaurant staff for accommodating us on a busy evening and being so attentive to our needs.

“Great Italian Food!”
Reviewed August 13, 2008

If you are looking for great Italian food with decent prices, this is the place. The menu is expansive and the service is very good. You can even sit outside on nice nights.
