Pretty much everything on the menu is amazing. Creative gelato flavors too. Very family friendly, and so much better than the usual family friendly chain restaurants- finally the adults get to enjoy great food even with the kid friendly menu. We have been for brunch, lunch, and dinner. All good. It can get crowded, and they don’t take reservations but you can check in on the No Wait app.

During a recent visit to the St. Louis/Clayton area, we enjoyed lunch on two occasions at Pasteria, conveniently and centrally located on Forsyth Blvd in downtown Clayton.
The lunch menu offers an appealing selection of pasta dishes, pizzas, salads, and soups in a dining space that is spacious, casually appointed, and filled with natural light.
At our first lunch, we shared delicious pizzas called The Holmes and Pastaria Marinara, paired with glasses of refreshing iced tea.
At our second lunch at Pastaria, we enjoyed a hearty minestrone, a terrific squash soup, and a 'chopped salad' that contained a variety of greens, pistachios, and pepperoni---a tasty blend of flavors and textures!
Our waitresses were friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and most accommodating!

Took a large group. Service was very good, nice attentive college age kids. Just didn’t think the food was remarkable. Seemed a lot of food was left on plates.

Waited over an hour for a very noisy and very slow meal. Food was good, service was poor. Food came out in shifts- 10 minutes to get all meals on the table! First served meal,was cold. Not ever going back and recommend you only go on off hours. Very poorly managed and organized. Never again!!!

Pastaria is a pretty good pasta restaurant. I was very excited to try it, and maybe my expectations were therefore a bit high. I really wanted to love it, but it turned out to be just a "liked it" experience.

Our server, Cait, was terrific. She was prompt, attentive, knowledgeable, and genuinely enthusiastic about the restaurant. She informed us all of the ingredients for the food were prepared fresh in-house. I ordered the summer squash lasagna ($17.95) and my wife ordered the four cheese pizza ($13.75). The lasagna was quite good, but pretty small for its price. It did not come with a salad or any accompaniment besides the complimentary bread we were served upon being seated. The pizza was average. The crust was very thin and there was not a lot of cheese on it.

The dining area is clean and comfortable, but the tables are packed closely together, and gave me the feeling of being right on top of the diners the next table over. There is a parking deck in the structure the restaurant is located in, and Pastaria validates tickets, so parking is free.

Overall, Pastaria is a decent place to go for dinner. The pasta dishes seem to be above average in taste but a little below average in value, while the pizza is merely average.
