Pastaio is a new pasta focused restaurant in Soho and we’re going just call it what it is: a Padella copycat. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Pastaio follows the same no reservations, cheap, high-quality pasta format as Padella, but also has an air of efficiency around it. The bright almost canteen-like format of the restaurant is very welcoming but at the same time, doesn’t make you want to hang around. Which turns out to be another good thing - tables turn over fast. Even though we can’t quite get over the feeling that we are cheating on Padella, Pastaio is a really nice addition to the Soho, and we like everything from the starters to the pasta to the tiramisu.
