Atmosphere not so much, it's small and tight inside and pretty noisy but the food is so good it's worth it! Tortellini Gorgonzola is my favorite!

We were a party of 7 at 11:30 am on Saturday, with one other table being served. We placed our order for appetizers, drinks and entrees in after a short wait. Appetizers did not arrive until the entrees were served. We had to flag down the other server to get water. The food was excellent, fresh well prepared and presented... More

The hotel staff recommended this along with a couple of other restaurants out of the 50-60 nearby. The food is made fresh and was very tasty. While it is apparently a local chain, the food is well above any chain I have been to before. A good variety of dishes and our server, Taylor, was very friendly and good even... More

We visited for dinner and both had excellent meals. My wife loved her butternut squash ravioli and my pasta stuffed with shrimp, scallops and fish was also excellent. Service was very good and we were able to get a table right away. A very enjoyable meal.

We came here because it was the only restaurant at 9:30 on Fri night with no wait! Pleasantly surprised at the cocktail menu. Excellent selection, concoctions, flavors and prices. This was somewhat surprising since this is a casual restaurant and the cocktails those normally found in higher end establishments. The cocktails were the best and best made items on the... More

We enjoyed a very fresh and tasty salad with homemade bread followed by savory pasta dishes. My Italian wife said she would eat here again in a heartbeat. I had Fusilli alla Roma (the best) and my wife had Aglio e Olio. We hghly recommend this place!

I am not one of those fanatics that must eat gluten free food as the newest fad. I'm one of the real few who has been diagnosed to need to live this way, or I suffer. So I was pleasantly surprised at Pastini NW's offerings. When our group picked this place, I read reviews beforehand. Totally disagree with the ones... More

Nice restaurant when you first enter. Friendly host will greet you and take you to your table. Friendly server will take your drink and food order, inform you of the specials and recommendations. Everything is fantastic right up until you eat the food. It's not bad but given how much it cost for our entrees and the fact that this... More

This pregnant Momma was craving pasta while we stayed in Portland at the Silver Cloud Inn. This was in walking distance so we gave it a shot Saturday evening. I got the LINGUINI MISTO MARE, and it was so darn good! I didn't want it to end. And the staff was so nice, specially when it came to our toddler... More

We had dinner there this evening. There was an impressive selection of pasta. The pasta seemed home made and the sauces were wonderful. I have had better caprese. Wine was overpriced. The food came quickly but service was not attentive. Drink refills were not offered and no one asked us if everything was ok. Parking was difficult to find.
