Nice, small restaurant. There are only a dozen or so tables. It's very pleasant and prices are reasonable. The lasagna is excellent. Order this if unsure of what to get. Food is served on hot metal pans. Some like this. I don't as food takes...More

A most excellent home style experience. Delicious and filling family recipe lasagne. And my s.o. loved the shrimp.

The Lasagna is sooo good. The wait staff wonderful. We love the decore. You almost feel you are in Italy. Love the booths, very private. I like the fact you can see right into the kitchen.

Very tasty food, and just the right amount -- served right in a hot frying pan on the top of your table, so your meal stays warm (i.e., you do not move it onto a plate -- you eat out of the pan). We will...More

I eat at Pastaz often and love the friendly service, open kitchen, and huge portions of delicious food. Great place to take friends. Place is laid back and a meal is never rushed. My only complaint is their use of tumblers for wine glasses. Class...More
