Surprisingly good pizza, friendly staff and good service. I normally don't like pizza that much, but the pizza from Pastaio is something you look forward to.

Pasquale makes a melt-in-the-mouth pizza crust and your choice of delicious toppings. He also makes amazing pastries and I can't live without his bread. The personal service makes you feel at home.

We had a pizza at Il Pastaio one afternoon and it was the best we have ever had. The crust was beautiful and the veggies on it were creatively presented. Fabulous meal and I would highly recommend this restaurant.
