Description: In June of 1980, when Jay Elowsky was 20 years old, he moved from Bay City, Michigan and started washing dishes for his Aunt Kathy and Uncle Sonny, who owned "Sonny's Pizza" in San Clemente, California. After a year stint at CU in Boulder, he decided the pasta business was where his heart was. So he returned to Sonny's to cook for six more years in order to learn the family recipes that had been passed down to him by his mother, "MaMa Genovese", whose grandmother was the cook for the first King of the United Countries of Italy, Victor Emanuel the Second. In September of 1988, his Mom (Jean) and Dad (Lowell) and Jay opened up Pasta Jay's in Boulder at 9th and Pearl. Now almost three decades later - besides the Boulder eatery there are Pasta Jay's locations in Lone Tree, Moab, and Hays, KS. The Moab location opened in 1992. Generations later we continue to use family recipes to create "food fit for a king"!

After finding Eddie McStiff's disappointing two years after first going there we found this well-run and busy restaurant across the street. The kitchen keeps everything separate to prevent contamination for celiacs. Prices are decent. Service was great.

The food is decent, but not spectacular. I got a personal-sized pizza and paid $14!! This did not even include a salad, garlic bread, or a drink! The crust was burnt and the ham was way too spicy. Would not go again. Very overpriced- but most things in Moab are.

Probably good for the area but just ok if you're from a city with good Italian food. Service was good and quick. Salad and garlic bread were good, entrees just average.

Wide choice on the menu and the pasta dishes were all excellent, with very prompt service. We had a table by the sidewalk. Extremely pleasant and it was a good experience to dine here. Two of the party returned on another occasion during our stay in Moab. Service was prompt, attentive and helpful. We found no negatives.

We had an order of garlic bread and the Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken. We were really hungry and this meal fixed that. It was creamy and had lots of white meat chicken. This place is worth a visit. The patio dining was delightful even though we had some rain. The location was right next to our hotel, as well.
