Real Italian style pizza. Thin crispy and amazing taste thanks to the wood stove. Very busy place make sure you come before dinner time.

We have lots of friends who visit from out of town and Pastaria is our go-to place if we are staying in Clayton. Terrific for anything from a family gathering with well-behaved kids to a more casual work dinner. We love anything from Gerard Craft so biased.

2 things, great place for anyone families, couple, friends and I would recommended valet parking, as we were getting our car an SUV was getting 3 tickets. The service was pleasant and efficient. We got the pepperoni Pizza and some Gelato and it was delectable.

Nicely made wood fired thin crust pizza with non-typical toppings. Appetizer bread exceptionally tasty. Dessert gelato some of the best I have ever tasted. So creamy, smooth and rich.

Saturday lunch for an occasion. First time visit and anticipating something good because of reputation of Mr. Craft. Distinctly ordinary. Mediocre service and mediocre food, barely hot. Bread was baking and never arrived. Both pasta dishes looked the same although purported to be different and kale salad was the most uninspiring, over priced and boring plate ever seen in a... More

Great salad and pasta combos. Perfect place for a business lunch. The restaurant is an open style but it was easy to chat. The Gelato is to die for.

This restaurant was AMAZING! They make their pasta in house and it was by far the best pasta dish I have ever had (and I worked in an Italian restaurant for 5 years).

Good food, good prices, but a bit crowded during evenings. Make sure you make a reservation first or you'll have to wait quite a bit. One of the best restaurants in Clayton from what I understood and the food and the crowd seemed to confirm that.

Birthday celebration. Treated to dinner by my wife and son. Food is described in Italian and every dish was excellent. Gelato bar was just right for desert. Had a penne noodle perfectly else dente . Worth the stop

The food was good but we thought it was a little expensive. It was an enjoyable experience and the service was good. Mostly a younger business crowd.

Thank jerdelaa
