We had a lovely meal. Everything was delicious! Sarah, our waiter, was wonderful.
Would definitely recommend! Don't really like sitting in the street because the traffic can be loud. Will be very glad when we can all go back inside!

We thoroughly enjoyed as always our dining experience at Pastas. It truly never waivers. It was so nice to be able to eat indoors. Pastas always has great specials. I would highly recommend Pastas.

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!

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.

It's outdoor dining due to COVID 19.
I had Filet + Lobster. Filet is tender and tasty, Lobster is fresh and meat is crisp. I really enjoyed the food.

Outstanding service! Our server, Arthur was quick, smiley and very attentive. He didn't miss a beat, despite the fact that the place was packed. We didn't see a wine on the list that interested us so he suggested one that was off the list. We liked the taste so much that we bought the bottle to split between the two of us. He clearly knew the menu inside and out and had tried many of the dishes so he was able to give informed suggestions. The food was delicious as always. Pasta's always has an excellent selection of entrees to choose from, making it difficult to choose just one. We sat outside since it was our only option but with the heating lamps it was quite comfortable and romantic.

Our meal was fantastic! I had the swordfish special that could not have been fresher and tastier and my boyfriend had the chicken parmesan (it's a large portion too!). The Wagu meatball appetizer I would also recommend. Service was spot on as well. This is one of my favorite restaurants downtown and am already looking forward to my next visit.

I wouldn’t go here if you’re thinking about going here. I’m never going back. Extremely slow service. Drinks out slow, salad out slow, main course not out 45 minutes after I ordered. Server completely inattentive, never checking on me, never updating me as to when my entree might arrive. When I finally had to get up from the table and go inside to ask what was going on, she said nothing she could do about it, they can only cook food as fast as the food will cook. No apology. Owner wasn’t around, but I’ve met him on previous occasions and he’s arrogant and not very friendly. Same goes for his staff. You can do better elsewhere.

First time at Pasta Trattoria as well as eating at downtown Pleasanton. Outdoor dining due to the pandemic but the restaurant did a great job with heaters and a three sided tent.
I like the pasta Neapolitano. I took 1/2 of it home for dinner the following night, it was delicious.
My husband had the pasta bolognese. He said it tasted of too much salt, as did the minestrone.
We would like to try the other numerous restaurants on Main St. next time we are in Pleasanton.

Nice place in downtown pleasanton. They were pretty accommodating in terms of seating when we requested them to seat us by the heater. Food was good and their wine selection was decent overall good experience.

Hey everyone! We recently celebrated a birthday here at Pasta’s! It was a hit!!!
Our friends were able to find parking, the food was amazing (especially the salads and lobster ravioli dish). This birthday was one for the books!

Thank you to Mario, Jake and Art for making our evening amazing.

Cheers!

Once again, Pasta’s did not disappoint. We had excellent service throughout our meal. The muscles were exceptional as an appetizer. The chef was kind enough to let me order off menu (carbonara), and the drinks were poured with a heavy hand:) It was another terrific experience at Pasta’s!

The service, location and venue was above average and the waitress was great. the food wasn't very good all away around. noodles tended to be overcooked, the crab stuffed sole was not fresh, but was seasoned well. We would still come back, but I hope that it was just an off night.

Friendly staff. Great table outside. Service was extremely slow once seated, cocktails were subpar, and food was just ok. Dinner took about 20/25 mins longer than it should have with long stretches of having nothing in front of other than water, or an empty plate, or an empty drink. Dishes were not cleared timely or thoroughly, leaving a very cluttered 6 person table (table was still jammed when we finally left). Ultimately skipped desert as we were fed up with waiting so long for everything and the tired of sitting in the same spot for so long. To top of off, was surprised by a “automatic 20% service charge” which was not indicated anywhere on the menu (see pics) or the open table reservation. I usually tip 20-25% as I have a food service background and appreciate effort, but was planning to tip 10 to 15%, however, I didn’t get a choice in the matter. Unacceptable. Would not recommend or revisit.

Even though the seating was outside, the restaurant still made it a nice atmosphere. Everything was perfect, although a heat lamp or two would’ve made it even better!
