After reading the reviews, and feeling like we could eat something other than Greek for a change, we decided to try Pastarella. I'm really glad we did! Our Spicy pizza was very gourmet, with tons of gooey cheese, quality pepperoni and chili peppers that let you know you'd picked the Spicy. My wife had the penne pasta with pork and... More

This restaurant get a lot of wow reviews, which makes me ponder over the meaning of culinary taste. Sure enough, they serve tasty pasta there, but how does that qualify for rave reviews? Its all about crowd pleasing, no secret ingredients: salt, fat, sugar. It all comes at a wallet friendly package, served in a particularly sweet decor (if a... More

We went on May 10 2015. We ordered: pizza special, pizza light and salmon salad. All the dishes were tasty and the portions were really fulfilling. I would recommend it to everyone who loves pasta pizza or salad.

The FIRST time was a very nice experience/time inside Pastarella... The waiter was very friendly and professional. We ate VERA CARBONARA FOR 2 (with fresh parmesan fresh cut... More
