Having never been to a Pastini restaurant before I wasn??t sure what to expect. However, the restaurant, menu items and attentive service exceeded my expectations. Being brand new to Portland, I was impressed to find an Italian restaurant that has a perfect ambience for both a family dinner, a business lunch or drinks and cocktails with friends on the weekend. Pastini definitely has combined all of these attributes into one restaurant, and the best thing about it is their multiple locations all around PDX! My first dining experience was a lunch with a group, and we were so hungry that we decided to sample a little bit of everything on the menu. We tried the Roasted Garlic-Artichoke Spread with Bruschetta for our appetizer, and it was 100% garlicky-Italian goodness. Our server also brought out complimentary baskets of bread. The food that was served was a good as if we were visiting a fine dining establishment ?? but for LESS than half the price! The portions were large, and I ended up boxing half of my delicious Linguine Pesto Pollo entre to-go, to take as leftovers for dinner. Pastini is definitely one of the best, most versatile Italian Bistros in Portland and I would highly recommend taking friends, family and out-of-town guests to enjoy the dining experience!

There are a lot of great Italian places in Portland. Pastini is okay - there are some nice options. Compared to many places downtown, it is on th more reasonable side price wise ($7-11). The mixed drinks are good, but stingy. If your on the east side, there are better reasonable Italian options.

Message from Pastini Pastaria - Downtown Portland Italian Restaurant

Our Portland, Bend, and Corvallis Italian restaurants feature affordable fresh and authentic pastas. As owners, we are personally involved in every aspect of our restaurants. We know that using fresh, local ingredients makes a difference to our customers and to our community. Unlike the big, corporate chains, we handcraft each entrée to order. We begin with sizzling garlic and olive oil, add fresh, local ingredients, and finish with fragrant herbs and grated parmesan. We create all of our soups, sauces, pestos and dressings fresh every day. We hand-form our authentic meatballs. We make our own croutons. We bake the butternut squash that goes into our Rigatoni Zuccati. We roast the balsamic onions for our Spinach Salad Balsamico. We whip the creamy mascarpone that is layered into our handmade Tiramisu. And, we source fresh produce, dairy, artisan breads, coffee, and meat locally. Come in and experience the local difference! Complementing our pastas are authentic antipasti, crisp salads, rustic sandwiches, and handcrafted desserts. Our well-priced wine list includes bottles from both stellar Oregon wineries and small, family-owned vineyards in Italy. Or you can sip a Pastini Italian Cocktail or quaff a local microbrew.
