Pastavino translates to pasta & wine, the quintessential Italian experience, drawing inspiration from the traditional casual yet satisfying trattorias & enotecas (wine bars) dotted throughout Italy. Michelin Star Chef Josh Laurano's menu focuses on well executed, modern interpretations of familiar Italian flavors, house made pastas, focaccia & secondi. We pride ourselves on seasonality, and using the finest local ingredients, and allowing them to be the soul of the menu - Materia Prima. General Manager John Gorga's beverage program features a large exclusively Italian list, with a large selection by the glass, and 150 bottles from all regions of Italy. The bar showcases a seasonal craft cocktail list, local beers, and large selection of amari and grappa.

We went for my boyfriends birthday and has such a great experience! The food, the service and the ambiance were all impeccable. We felt like we were at a fine dining restaurant when truly, the food was so appropriately priced for the quality. We ordered a delicious bottle of wine to share and had ourselves a great night. The waitstaff were all so kind and we are absolutely looking forward to going back

This place was amazing, can’t wait to go back! The hostess was super friendly and professional, our waiter Carmine on a 1 - 10, gets a 12. We were celebrating a birthday, 5 people plus a 1 year old and they couldn’t be more accommodating. I had the octopus app, and squid ink bucatini with shrimp main - delish! For 5 people with drinks it came to $400 so wasn’t too pricey. Both upscale and comfortable - perfect for special occasions, or a date for 2.

Loud is an understatement The music was far too loud causing diners to scream to be heard.
Food was good but portion size was what you’d expect at a tapas dining establishment
Was it worth 100+ per head ? Not for me

Embarrassed to admit it was my first visit to Pastavino. Yet, it surely will be the first of many.
We shared the enormous appetizer of fresh bread with tomato, ricotta and basil. It could’ve been the entree.
I then dined on the lamb bolognese on paparadelle. The pasta was perfect and the sauce creamy.
The wait staff was excellent! They were poised, knowledgeable and attentive.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything about PastaVino. It is so refreshing to dine out in NYC with educated, well-spoken servers - - minus any attitude. From the moment you step into the restaurant, you know you are somewhere special. The seasonal menu is very well put together. Since reopening in May, we have tried almost everything on the menu and always enjoy our selection. The appetizers, meat and cheese board, focaccia breads, EVERY pasta dish, Faroe Island salmon, branzino, scarpariello, gelato, and espresso (to name just a few) are all excellent.

Management and owners "nailed it" - - can't wait to return again next week.

I am vegan and the waitress went out her way to accommodate me. I ordered the antipasto salad as an appetizer and she brought the salami and provolone in a separate dish for my husband to eat with his appetizer.

Best thing we’re the focaccia breads. Super loud where you can’t hear people across from you. Main entrees were lacked any inspiration and were bland. Service resembled the quality you get at the Olive Garden. Would not be back there are better options.

Absolutely enjoyed the food, ambiance (minus the acoustics) and the SERVIce. It is quite refreshing to have experienced wait staff and hands-on management (Noel) who want to please patrons.
My hat is off to PastaVino for bringing a new, quality, unique restaurant to the Staten Island desert.
