Chef had gone to Terra Madre in Turin, Italy and traveled through Italy gaining in depth knowledge of local cuisines. Pizzas, pastas, salads and mains all are replications of Italian dishes. Delicious. A short drive from interstates so worth a visit if driving through the...More

We stopped in on Friday before heading to a show. There was a 1 hour wait however we sat at the bar adjacent to the kitchen. It was very entertaining to watch the kitchen work. All of the pizzas looked amazing. We got pasta. They...More

This was my first visit having stayed away from eating there because it was the "posh" place to go. I went solo and sat at the "food bar" which I always try because I can talk to the people doing the cooking. I love places...More

The Pastaria has been a favorite of ours since we came across it 3 years ago! This is one of the best Italian-inspired restaurants across the U.S. The pasta is ALWAYS cooked perfectly (al dente), flavorful, and the service is enjoyable and attentive. Every time...More

Way overpriced, food adequate but certainly not outstanding, host was rude, ridiculously long wait for three people on a Thursday night (50 minutes). Would not eat there again.

You must be kidding but they actually told me this last Sat night when I wanted to order a take out pizza. Every restaurant that I know of puts to go orders at the top of their list of items to fix. Lame customer service.

It was a gorgeous Sunday in St. Louis, so me and a couple friends chose to sit outside instead of the cool inside space. We skipped dinner (a little early) but ordered drinks and yummy appetizer risotto balls, along with their delicious complimentary bread. It's...More

My daughter and I have spent time in Italy together so we are pretty choosy when it comes to Italian food. Pastaria did not disappoint. The atmosphere was as delightful as the food was delicious. We will definitely be back!
