Been going here since the 90s. Love the location in downtown Pleasanton. On warm nights, there's outdoor seating too. Favorite is the Cajun jumbo prawn linguine!
The sea bass Valentine special was amazing! Best seafood I've ever had!
We usually have a very good experience at this restaurant. Today my water glass was dirty. They replaced it and then when they poured the wine I realized in my wifes wine glass was dirty. They replace the wine glass but then when my dinner arrived although it tasted very good, it was kind of cold and I had to have them reheat it.
Like I said, our experience is normally good here but today I cannot get them high marks
We arrived early but were seated right away at a very nice table. The waitress offered to make a special sauce for me and it was excellent. Other than the tables being too close together and a little loud it was an excellent dining experience. Friendly service and tasty food that's reasonably priced. Recommended.
Quiet atmosphere with yummy comfort food. Not a place to come if you are in a hurry - while service was attentive, it was slow. Nice for a relaxing unhurried dinner.
The first time we visited the restaurant, everything was perfect - the food, the ambience, the service..
We visited the restaurant on Dec 24th for a special occasion - we were seated at a table close to the door where there was a cold draft every time someone walked in and out. The food was sub par and no bread/breadsticks were offered while we waited for our appetizers and entrees to arrive.
Food was just OK, service was a joke. We can't find the words to exlain how bad the service was
We actually think the waitress was high on drugs or booze !! We will never go there ever !
We will not recommend it to any of our family and frienda !!
Great food and service!!
Went to Pasta's Trattoria for ladies holiday get together. Nice ambiance and selections. The service was very good. Our server was even kind enough to take a group picture for us. The food was excellent.
Had a great experience here celebrating kids' piano recital. I was super high maintenance ordering a gluten free, no garlic, no onion dish. Waitress and chef totally worked with me in combining a few dishes into one and it was delicious! I'd go back just to reorder that same thing. Yum. Also, bartender accidentally poured 2 glasses of wine instead of the 1 I ordered - they could have easily tried to resell it to another customer but instead the waitress brought it to me and said "on the house!" So nice! Liked this place for sure will go back.
Service was great, prices ok, bread was delicious but the main course was disappointing
If you have a chance to get there very soon, get the special pork chop. Even when we go back I'll defiantly check there specials.
Food was good. Service was not great but they had a large party (30+) in another room.
Great place! Great service, yummy food. I highly recommend it.
The food is excellent and so was the service. All who worked there seemed to be happy to serve us. The environment is friendly and clean. Great time.
Excellent food and service....pasta, chicken piccata; wine; dessert
Excellent food, great lamb shanks with homemade pasta! Generous serving sizes and sharable salad, which they split for us very graciously. The service was attentive and prompt. Pastas is a lovely local restaurant to frequent often!
Lunch was great. Our food tasted good and our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
For how expensive the place was, I'd expect not to spend almost my entire meal with my water glass empty. I don't understand how they justify the high prices.
