When you want to choose an Italian restaurant downtown, Pastas is your place. The food is consistently good, the winelist compliments the food beautifully, and the service is friendly! I've tried them all, and I keep coming back to Pastas!

We loved dining at Pastas Outside tables were not all bunched together and their food and service is always first class. We go here often. One of Pleasanton's best.

How lovely to be seated at a table with tablecloth and cloth napkins...
a step above the usual these days. Our wait staff was attentive and
welcoming.... especially Mario.

Very enjoyable experience.

My first negative review. Here it goes... On the positive side, the food was good. On the negative side, everything else was terrible. We had a reservation, but when we arrived the hostess told us to just pick a table outside and seat ourselves. We did... and then I guess the hostess forgot about us. The service the entire evening was bad. When we finally recieved menus it was another half hour before we were even approached by a server. Said server was almost completely absent and our food took over an hour to get to us. When we finally were able to get the check and head out Main Street was deserted. Overall, it was frustrating and the food quality and outdoor ambiance wasn't worth the it. I am guessing they were really understaffed (there were only 2 serves working the entire restaurant), which would be hard for them, but it still was a bad dining experience.

The menu has so many wonderful sounding dishes. I had the short rib ravioli with a marsala sauce that was one of the best dishes I have ever had! The restaurant is beautiful inside. The wait staff was wonderful. Highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back many times.

Truly great Mother’s Day Dinner. Six people, five different entrees, zero complaints. Table was ready when we arrived, service was excellent. No surprise that the pasta dishes were excellent (I had the Louisiana Penne!) But my wife loved her Prime Rib, and my daughters New York steak was cooked perfectly (I had a bit of that to!) Thanks for the great meal!

Their food is amazing especially the weekend deals. Can’t go wrong here. You can bring your own wine and pay corkage fee and it’s worth it if you have a special bottle to open.

I understand that Covid may have taken a toll... but I was super disappointed we were pretty much ignored outside waitress hardly came to the table. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and pretty much were ignored outside in the tent. People actually sat down after us and we’re already done with their dinner before our entrée even came out!
My husband asked for his steak med well and it was burnt! It was a Tuesday night they were only two waitresses on staff and I believe it was one of their first night it was a help wanted sign on the door so I’m hoping it’s just because they are ramping back up. I still think it wasn’t busy enough for the waitress to at least check in on us when we were sitting there with no food or drinks for a long time at least say is everything OK or your meal will be right out... how hard is it??

Service was excellent. My friend had the encrusted halibut and said it was excellent.
I had the lobster and shrimp ravioli which was ok but the mushroom sauce overwhelmed the shrimp and lobster taste.

Enjoyed our meal, had the nut encrusted halibut and my husband enjoyed short rib dinner. Both were excellent! We had a nice table inside well distanced from others. Very busy night, service was understandably a bit slower due to volume of clients. Also their cheesecake was yummy!

Even though they had not received our Open Table reservation, they accommodated us. The host explained this happens from time to time. Our table was one of the loveliest in the room, a quiet corner. Our food was excellent. The service too. This is one of our favorite restaurants for brunch on Sunday.

We tend to be very picky, in particular with Italian food. We were excited to find a restaurant in which we enjoyed the bread, wine, chicken parmesan, caesar salad, and the Italian cheesecake dessert. The service was attentive and the outdoor ambience fantastic. We enjoyed our time there.
