We love pastas... 5 star. Great service and food. Sydney always the best server in Pleasanton 😊
Only complaint: Acoustics not so great. We moved to a window table and that was much better.
Our waiter Art was wonderful and the food was
Excellent food and great service.....reasonable prices. We were a party of nine and everything was very good.
Reunion with former ‘boss’ and his family. Wanted to have special location and fine food for the meetup. Successful on both fronts.
Pasta’s made it happen!
Great table, Great Service, Great Food. Terrific.
Great food, service, and value!
Food was tasty but not cheap.
We reserved with the information that it was a birthday but it was never acknowledged.
Great food and friendly staff. Excellent overall.
So good the first time, we came back two days later for a second dinner night
Excellent service despite being extremely busy. The food was amazing and the drinks delightful!
We live this restaurant. Liz is the best waitress!
Great food, great service, great owner. Going back for a second dinner
Good food in a comfortable setting and at a reasonable price for the quality of the food. Food was excellent, the service was acceptable. It not outstanding
Sat outside. Our waiter, Oscar, was great! The food was excellent! The atmosphere felt authentic to the streets of Rome! Make sure to have a cappuccino after dinner! Very nice date night!
It’s a favorite spot of ours
The food is always amazing
The service was outstanding
ordered calamari and a Caeser salad. Salad dressing was too much and no zing, Calamari was overcooked and very chewy in both the pasta that my friend had ordered and my dish. The waitress was very helpful and efficient.
Service was excellent. I found my chicken a little rubbery but everyone else was satisfied. Noise level was high until the table with children finished and left. I come into this restaurant at least twice a month and found it to be one of the gem's in Pleasanton.
Great time, delicious dinner, low corkage fee so we brought an exceptional bottle with us!
I would not recommend this place after my last visit. Michelle use to be my server for years. Always had great service.
This past visit I cannot say the same. First there was a bug in the water that was poured out, I received no apology just a new glass.
The food was off unfortunately. The pasta had way too much pepper. We ordered drinks and did not receive refills. With Michelle it was automatic, the drinks were about 1/4 full she would bring a new one.
I just moved back to the area and don’t think I’ll be going back. It’s sad. I used to love this place.
Good food, service, full of people and, yet, enjoyable atmosphere. Enjoyed and strongly recommend!
Although this restaurant was pricier than my friend and I were seeking on the spur of the moment after attending an outdoor festival, the service, in particular, won us over. We had chosen on the basis of an Italian menu that appeared in photos to include some lighter items. Unfortunately, there was an issue with one of our food choices. The issue was handled promptly with an offer to repair or replace. And the offer, as well as the amended food item, was delivered smilingly and with thanks. Could not have been handled better.
This was my second time to Pastas Trattoria and we came back for my husband's birthday because our first experience was so positive. We are Italian and are VERY fussy about Italian restaurants because too many of them just don't get it right. We were fortunate to have Oscar as our (extremely professional and pleasant) server, as he was for our first visit (seriously, Oscar is top flight. I hope Pastas recognizes what a gem he is). The bread is served warm, as bread should be served (why so many restaurants don't get this is beyond my comprehension), and the balsamic and olive oil dipping dressing is garlicky and flavorful. They make their own pasta, which they don't advertise too much. It's a papardelle or tagliatelle type of noodle, and you can substitute it on any of the pasta dishes, which is what I did for the rigatoni gorgonzola. The mista salad had a well balanced and tangy flavor profile, which was wonderful. Our pasta dishes were served piping hot and none of us could finish the large portion sizes (which is saying something when two teenage boys are involved). Oscar was so thoughtful in asking how we wanted our food paced and prioritized. No detail is too small for him. We just spent a month in Italy and Pastas Trattoria could compete with authentic Italian trattorias in many of the cities we visited. We think very highly of Pastas and look forward to bringing more friends and family members in the future (which is a bit of a drive for us from Walnut Creek, but worth it).
Our server, Christian, was excellent. The food, as always, was amazing!
Everything was excellent- the wedge and garlic bread was enough so we took home the raviolis and had another taste meal the next day. We will go back for the next special occasion dinner.
Everything was great! Our server was so attentive, the food delicious and it was nice and quite! Will go back very soon!!!
Really enjoyed our lunch, very good menu, wide variety but not overwhelming number of choices including specials for the day with suggested wine pairings, well prepared and presented. Service was attentive and helpful but not hovering. Very nice ambiance too. Definitely a special place to come back to for lunch or dinner.
Another excellent dinner at Pasta's. This was for my birthday.
My wife and I ordered just an Entree and paid the corkage fee for a bottle of wine we brought and the bill was $93.00. Thays a bit excessive.
super place. great food and good vibe. waitress was amazing and super friend for my moms birthday.. .
20th Anniversary !
We will definitely be back! Loved the Wedge crab salad!
I wanted to give 5 stars but the Eggplant Parm was under and over cooked. You should be able to cut Eggplant Parm with a fork. The eggplant itself was not baked long enough, the cheese layered on top, then re melted under a broiler. Cheese turned out to be well done and solid as a rock. The Pineapple Mint Sorbet was over the top fantastic!
Great spot for my boyfriend and I to have our Friday night date night! Great outdoor seating to enjoy the summer weather too!
Dinner, service, and ambiance was nice early in the evening. It got noisier as we were leaving, but it didn’t bother us. My dad always has to come here and have the short rib ravioli when he comes in town from out-of-state. Always a great dinner!
I loved their bottomless weekend brunch/ lunch sangria. We stop in when we are near Pleasanton because of that. It was a nice treat to have 2. It's still on the menu online but they have discontinued it. I had a sangria but it was not nearly as good. That was my reason for going there. 😟.
Great air conditioning on a very hot day.
Excellent service and we got to take our time, didn’t have to rush. Specials were on point and enjoyed the tilapia, crab wedge and sandwiches. 5 of 7 have never been here before and everyone would be more than happy to return.
Amazing food, friendly and attentive service, great ambiance. We will be back!
Food is always good. Service can be a little slow; otherwise, we would have given 5 stars.
GREAT PLACE,GREAT FOOD AND THE OUTSIDE SEATING IS AMAZING IN THE SUMMER..
SERVICE IS EXCELLENT..
Another delicious dinner. We especially like their calamari appetizer and Cajun pasta with spicy cream sauce. Tiramisu is outstanding to share. We really enjoyed being able to finish our bottle of wine on the "patio" streetside after dinner as the evening was a lovely spring night. Then on to a cool venue for live music! What could be better?
We were celebrating 2 May birthdays & were very disappointed that the restaurant did nothing to help us celebrate.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Café style ambiance perfect for casual dining, small parties or special occasions.
