    A truly excellent restaurant experience. Food and drinks are incredible. Service has always been excellent. Its typically pretty loud in the main dining room, but the insolated terrace and outside patio evens it out. If you're willing to pay for a nice night out with your significate other, you will not find a better ambiance and dining experience on Staten Island.

    We were happy to see the manager, John, who does a wonderful job and knows hospitality. Tried the new Littleneck Clams served in an Italian tomato broth - - they were the best we've ever had. Enjoyed their "Italian" version of a Wedge Salad, and the delicious branzino over spinach. Excellent all around!

    Pastavino is a fine dining experience. Sounds dramatic but it’s true. Professional service that accompanies creative cuisine. Each item is carefully described at your table side and expertly prepared in the kitchen . I couldn’t find a single flaw in our evening. Even something as simple as the fried calamari caught my attention. Their attn to detail is tremendous, so if you see something on the menu that you think you have seen or had a million times before, try it at Pastavino b/c I guarantee you haven’t had it their way. Also, the timing of the courses was perfect. We did not feel rushed or like we were waiting too much. Lastly, the cocktails and wines were great also. Always judge my bar service by my pre dinner Manhattan and this bar service is on top of their game. Quality ingredients right down to the garnish. No skimping.

    Celebrating a birthday is always a magical moment especially if it is this beautiful restaurant. We had wonderful dishes, we tried a few new editions and we were very happy with our selections. Our server was very pleasant and attentive as always. Wine selections are always the best to choose to accompany the menu. We are almost like fans to this place, I bring people from out of town and is always a pleasure to be here as they delivery 100%. We were very happy with the desserts, very delicious. We will be back again and again.

    They tried a bit too hard to be trendy. Giant candle melt tower’s defied explanation and the food lacked a simplicity that made every dish spicy and over complex. Fresh and simple of some items would have made for better options.

    Only thing good was our cocktail … and we weren’t even asked if we would like another! Ordered apps for the table … the buratta … was one slice of cheese over a couple chipotle onions & peppers . Calamari looked like a little side order , with sauce that wasn’t warm & when you went to our a little on the dish , it was clumped together. Meatball was ok! Eggplant parm was overly breaded .. couldn’t taste eggplant .. spicy vodka sauce … there wasn’t enough .. honestly tasted like I heated leftovers from an Italian deli. Very disappointing!! Our 4th time there .. I doubt we will be back. Our friend we were with owns a restaurant. He was the reason we went , he had never been. I loved watching his face when we ate. His wife had Branzino , it wasn’t well prepared at all … plate looked so sad. My husband had the pork chop. He came home & ate the leftovers I had from the night before.

    The decor was crisp and beautiful and the service was very good. The food was prepared and plated very well but was lacking some taste,like herbs or spice that would have lifted the taste. I would recommend Pastavino to a friend but will tell them to lower their expectations about the food. I also thought that a glass of wine for $17.00 was outrageous.

    After reading all the rave reviews, I was completely underwhelmed by the food. What restaurant today does not offer a vegetarian option on the menu, or if not on the menu, is willing to accommodate a person who asks for a dish that is made with vegetables instead of dairy, meat or fish? Our server, Sergio, said that nothing on the menu could be changed to suit a guest’s needs. Speaking of Sergio, he was uninformed and had to keep going back and forth to find answers to the simplest questions. So as for the food, it was merely passable. The Caesar Salad and the Tuna Tartare were so lemony and limey that the other flavors vanished. One guest could not eat their salad so another kind was brought out, escarole with cheese and walnuts, the lack of dressing on it made it dry and tasteless. So the salads were 0 for 2! I Couldn’t have a whole Branzino and the half I did have was overcooked, dried out and sitting atop a bed of the saltiest unidentifiable by taste dark green vegetable; the corn, hazelnuts and chives were obviously missing. I think the best part of the meal was the good bread and delicious Negroni Cocktails both regular and white.
