Food is amazing and reasonably priced.

Had dinner there on Sunday. The staff was friendly, attentive and fast. The food was amazing. It's all clearly fresh and made on the spot. Nothing frozen or packaged at this place. It's a BYOB, so my friend and I shared some wine, great food and a lovely chat with the owner. Highly recommend!

Food at Pastaria never disappoints. Fresh and interesting offerings on the menu are always pleasing to the eye as well as the pallet. The servers are enthusiastic, caring, and attentive. This restaurant has been a favorite because of the homemade pastas, sauces, seafood offerings and constantly changing specials, which are always a hit. If you haven’t been lately, treat yourself to excellent food in a charming location.

We just had a party here for my sons baptism and we were so happy! Jennifer and the waitstaff went above and beyond to make things nice for us. The food was great and all of our guests had a great time! We will be back!

Not my first place to try in Red Bank. Wanted something different though. Pleasantly surprised! Amazing? No... But I had a quality meal with a very good mix of options to choose from that met everyone's needs and it didn't break the bank. Don't get the stuffed chicken. It's two cutlets with the 'stuffing' all towards the middle. However, the lasagna, Milanese, and a few other dishes were good. I'm writing this review les than a week later because it is too of mind as somewhere I may pick something up for tonight. Can't be bad then, right?

I fell into this restaurant today and had one of the best overall restaurant experiences I've ever had. The staff is so genuinely sweet and generous. The pear salad blew me away. Ten out of ten.

Can't say enough about how helpful the staff was (Jennifer) and how enjoyable our meal was.I had out of town guests and needed an intimate table for 14! They arranged it with no hassle.Everyone commented on the quality of the food and how refreshing it was that they didn't have to yell to be heard! A great evening! 5* review.

My husband and I both got specials. Perhaps that was our mistake after living here for years and never hearing anything great about this place. Food took extremely long to be served (about 45 minutes). Bread and olive oil was hot good. It is BYOB. My husband thought his dish was okay, mine was basically inedible and it was tortellini. The owner tried to give us another dish but we declined. Go to Buena Sera for Italian. We had to go down the street for pizza as the food was basically inedible. No wonder we have lived here for years and never once had anyone recommend it. They tried to held us hostage by holding our credit card saying they would make us more food when I didn't feel good and just wanted to go home.

We had my daughters christening here this past Sunday and I have to say that everything was wonderful! Spoke with Jennifer who was so nice, professional, and made sure our experience was exceptional from the beginning to the end. Some of my guest had allergies and she accommodated them and whatever we needed. We had around 60 people in our party and not one person had a negative comment. Everyone enjoyed the food and staff. The manager checked on us and made us feel welcome. It was overall a wonderful day and we will definitely be booking again here soon. A special thank you to the bus boy Andres he was great as well!

Food was not good. Honestly the stomachaches we had after were horrible. My mistake was telling the truth that I didn't like the food. They basically held our credit card while they tried to make another dinner within "2 minutes" it was pretty rude when I just said I honestly was thankful but I just wanted to leave as I didn't feel good. No reputable Italian dinner can only take 2 minutes. We got our card back, paid and left. We walk past it often and it's never crowded, that should've been a giveaway. Will stick to the other Italian restaurants in Red Bank every week.

Went on Tuesday evening and place was empty. Disappointed because on line they advertise a fixed price menu valid on Monday, Tuesday and Wed. When seated we asked about it and we’re told they no longer honor it. This was disappointing. We stayed and I would say the salads were very good but my entree, lasagna was very dry. The staff was friendly but I would not return.

The service was pristine. The food was something that any Italian mother would write home about.

Delicious mid week dinner with my Mom. Attentive & kind waiter, very sweet & hospitable hostess. The avocado salad on the specials was amazing. If you want a nice, down to earth & friendly environment of yummy food come here! Btw we split a large rigatoni vodka & that was plenty with the salad!
