Amazing food, great place, awesome ambiance! Our server Emma is always amazing, attentive and has an amazing bubbly smile!
Usually, our favorite dish is delicious! This time the sauce was too salty & not as flavorful. Unusual. Meatballs & kale & fennel salad were delicious! U have to pay for bread now & it’s not the same as at the former location. Wait staff is super friendly & helpful. But the wait staff & hostess are literally running back & forth from kitchen to the outdoor patios. That is a bit stressful vs relaxing, but they are trying to get the food out while hot.
Fabulous food, wine and service. +25 years and stronger than ever.
I have been dining at The Pastaria for years. The food is always very good and the service was outstanding! You can’t go wrong eating there.
Pastaria is consistently outstanding. Love their food and the service is excellent.
It was amazing!
Delicious food and wonderful staff. Must get is the garlic bread and Brie with garlic!
We love this place! Food is delicious and the staff is great.
Service was friendly and very helpful. Setting on the street is not the best as cars are close as they drive by. Food was good but too salty. Overall, a good experience.
Food is fabulous!! A little noisy for old people
Had the spicy garlic bread, caesar salad, the walnut pesto and the mostaccioli. All of the food was tasty and well prepared! The walnut pesto was the star of the meal. The service was attentive and kind. Recommend and will repeat!
With out question, one of the best Italian restaurants in Los Gatos. The food was perfect, and the service was impeccable. We've dined at the old location several times but this new location supper nice and is now our go to Italian restaurant in the area.
Excellent everything! The meatballs were very memorable. We are planning our next visit.
Made reservations but they didn’t have a table for us, so they put together a setting down the block on the curb next to a road block. Our server was nice but had to jog back and forth between us and the restaurant. The food was ok, seating and environment not good.
The Pastaria is one of our favorite restaurants in Los Gatos. We dined outside on a warm Sunday evening. The wait staff worked especially hard to keep diners safe during Covid19.
Secured standard seats, not patio.. but we were seated in the patio regardless. Without complaint - I understand the difficulties in operating these days. We were, so far from any service table with support items that when I asked for pepper on my salad... it took 7 minutes to wander back to the dining room secure the shaker, then return.
There were only coverings on two sides of the tent - so wind blew through and it was very chilly. The propane fireplace had little effect.
It simply took too long to deliver good and service since we were located two addresses away from the restaurant. We rushed our meal to get out of the cold.
Simple steps could have solved this... covid restrictions or not..
The restaurant is now open for indoor seating as well, which is nice to see. We sat near the front of the restaurant. The selections we chose were really tasty. I ordered seafood linguini. We also had the salmon on asparagus dish and the lasagna.
We were stuffed. Our server was very attentive.
Best Italian food and value in the South Bay. Outside dining is nice and not too loud; with all the downtown charm of Los Gatos.
Was excited to try this place for the first time. Service was way too slow and they seemed confused. Food was just okay. Table was terrible, cold and noisy.
The servers were amazing, and the food was delicious. Really enjoyed the experience.
The food was the best! Service was great!! Our waiter was so nice and very helpful
It was my birthday and that was noted when reservations were made but not recognized. Limited menu, but the food was very good. Crazy times…
Great dinner w the kids
The food was delicious. But there was group outside that was very loud and in the small
Very good and I will be very excited to go back.. I love the new location and the owners are both lovely.
Always wonderful and consistent! Wonderful man agent!
The highlight of our week (yes, we eat at the Pastaria that often) is our night out at The Pastaria. The staff is like family, friendly, knowledgable, efficient and fun and the food is always remarkable. The ambiance is fabulous and cozy with fire pits, lights making it a refreshing break from reality.
I've eaten at The Pastaria before, and I couldn't wait to go back! Unfortunately, it took me a couple of years due to living out of the area. Our dinner was such a disappointment. The appetizer took 30 minutes to come out, which was a bit long. We weren't too upset about that, although we had ordered it because we were so hungry. When our pasta came out, mine was perfectly flavorless. The sauce was so runny that it didn't coat the pasta at all. Pushing the pasta aside and attempting to scoop up some sauce, I found that it tasted like warm cream -- no truffle flavor at all. I resolved to simply eat the chicken. I took a bite, and could barely chew through it, it was so overcooked. My husband's dinner was so-so-- better than mine. His gnocchi were prepared well, but his sauce was also incredibly runny. I wanted to order something else, but our server did not check on us for over 20 minutes. By the time she asked us how things were, my husband was finished, and we were just ready to go home. I told her what was wrong with the dish, and she seemed to take it personally. Gratefully, the owner/manager comped my dish, but we will not return. The server, herself, said that she "eats this pasta every night," which tells me it wasn't just an "off" night (as I was hoping was the case).
Great food, great service! Beautiful location as well!
So delicious! It was our first time here and we loved it. Our server was amazing and the pace of dinner was perfect... not too much down time between things (drinks, apps, mains, dessert), but did not feel rushed. We definitely will be back to enjoy again!
So good I love their frose my waitress was so nice. I went on a solo self date and definitely recommend to my other friends.
The Pastaria is the best restaurant of all time. Phenomenal food, ambiance and service.
Great food and service
One of our favorites for date night and the staff is always so amazing!
Always excellent. The house made gluten free pasta is the best I’ve ever had. Not to mention it’s difficult to find places that make their own GF pasta at all
The best pasta in town!
We had the Butternut Squash Ravioli and the Tagliatelle Bolognese. We finished every bite! Their garlic bread is very tasty as well. Our server and the bus person were attentive to our table. They made sitting outside in the cold bearable for us!
The Pastaria is our go-to place (at least 2x's a week) for the best Italian food in a charming setting even during COVID and all the restrictions. I can't recommend this place enough a true neighborhood gem
Covid so eating outside. Cold. Heaters could be better placed.
