Pastai review image



186 9th Ave, New York
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Pastai is Chelsea’s resident charming Italian place. The food tastes good, they make their own pasta, and you could easily bring a date or a small group here. They can also make any of their dishes with homemade gluten-free pasta so you won’t have to feel bad for eating the short rib lasagna in front of your high-maintenance friend. In terms of the space, there’s a bunch of bar seating and an old-school-looking dining room with black and white portraits of people you can pretend are part of your family.
