Excellent food. Great indoors/outdoors atmosphere. My daughter and I shared a Caesar salad (regular size), an order of garlic bread, and an entree (stuffed portobello mushroom). We both had a glass of red Sangria that was freshly made. Prices were very reasonable and food enjoyable.

Walking Pearl Street with street performers and unique shops is fun in and of itself. Pasta Jays provided atmosphere and good eats along the way. Kids enjoyed their meals as well. Not too expensive either. Worth the visit despite the tiny bathroom!

This was a cute little Italian place we ran into while in downtown Boulder. It was a cute place and the portions were large (be careful what you order). They do have some gluten free options.

I started eating at Pasta Jay's when it had a front deck with a tree growing through the center, back in 1990. I was a regular as I lived only a short walk away. I no longer live in Boulder, but I come back to...More

Four of us ate at Pasta Jay's last Sunday, and the food was delicious as always. I had the Chicken Genovese and enjoyed it greatly. We need to eat there more frequently. Dinner for four of us came to $105. before tip.

I know they have a wonderful outdoor area to eat and there are Dogs every where. I do not think you would have a problem. The food is GREAT and so was the service!

We had a great meal but things go wrong in any restaurant. Some don't match our expectations for comping when this happens & I usually won't return.
