I eat at Pastaria every time I come to St. Louis. Food is consistently wonderful. Kale salad is to die for (and that's a tough thing for kale salad). Cocktails are thoughtful and well done. Pastas are handmade and delicious (though occasionally oversauced). And the pizza....absolutely wonderful, though be forwarned, there is some char on the crust (which i LOVE).... More

Just forget trying to eat here unless you have their "NoWait" app. They don't take reservations, so just forget it.

While at a chess tournament in Clayton, it was around lunch time and I needed a quality place to eat (preferably different from the Plaza Grill which was below average). And sometimes the best places just get picked randomly on a map. Tucked away between multiple other dining options, it's only slightly easy to miss--but the interior is truly one-of-a-kind.... More

We were crazy about this place on our first few visits, the initial warmth has worn off but its still a solid Clayton choice for pasta dining. The Kale salad was really good but lately its been too course. pastas and geletos are always good

There was a wait but we jumped on an opening @ the bar. The bartenders were attentive, insightful & friendly. The homemade pasta & salmon were delicious. Quite an array of adult refreshments - wines, beers & mixed drinks. A definite place to dine at.

We both chose the chopped salad, and then chose different pastas -- their special strozzapretti, one with braised beef and the other cacio e pepe. Don't miss their gelato for a bit of sweet after a delicious... More

Stopped in on sunday after hearing the pizza was one of the best. I was definitely not disappointed. The space is cool, and very open. I ordered The Holmes pizza and it was spectacular! The crust was perfectly crisp, and they didn't scrimp on the toppings. I also took some pasta home that I have yet to try, but looks... More
