Love going to Pasta Jay's. The pizza is great, along with the rest of the menu. It's usually always crowded since Boulderites do know where to go for the best, The value and service would be hard to beat.

Great food: Manicotti, Minestrone soup, bread, and Buffalo Bill’s Ravioli. Our server Lisa was awesome! The only disappointment was I was an hour early for the lasagna. I’ll have to come back on a Wednesday night to try the lasagna. Must try for Italian food!

We had a great meal but things go wrong in any restaurant. Some don't match our expectations for comping when this happens & I usually won't return.
