Casually elegant, Pastina is home to some of the best Italian cooking in town inspired by the freshest ingredients, cooked simply and prepared beautifully with excellent service and a warm comfortable atmosphere. Many of the clientele are on the first name basis with host Franco Catullo who supplies ample amount of Italian charm to go along with delicate antipasti, splendid pastas, fresh fish, hefty veal chops and fabulous desserts flown in from Italy. Pastina strikes a perfect balance between favorite dishes of the moment and trusty standbys with waiters that have the Italian enthusiasm for seeing diners happy.

First visit here, and we were very impressed with both food and service. We were greeted graciously, service was prompt and appropriately attentive (e.g., filled water glass regularly without need to ask). Food was excellent, and prices very fair. No wine list, and a no-name wine-by-the-glass, but what they served was quite good. All in all, a great find for us.

We celebrated my husband's company holiday party lunch here and it was so nice. The food is excellent, the staff friendly and knowledgeable and the restaurant was decorated beautifully for the holidays.

Excellent pasta-- Penne Vodka is especially good and all the veal dishes are delicious. Cesar salad is generous and seasoned perfectly. And they have the best tiramisu in town!

This is a local favorite with a upscale but comfortable vibe. Highly recommend Pastina!

We happened to be in the neighborhood at 5.15p - checked with open table and they
had a table for us at 5.30p. When we first came at 5.30 there were very few people
there which always worries us but by the time we left the place was just about fully seated.

Service was really good - friendly staff - fast. Food was very good. There's a fair amount
of Italian restaurants that leans to much on creams, butters and salt. These guys did not.
Just good flavors from good produce. It truly feels like a family restaurant - dont know if it is but...... We had a couple of starters, glass of wine, three main courses and desert and we ended up at around $100 - very affordable for our experience.

If we're in the neighborhood and looking for Italian food we would be very happy to visit again.
