August 31, 2016 - Pastalina’s (454 Salem St, Medford, MA) First time at Pastalina’s and it will be the last. The owner is a scam artist especially when you use a Groupon. The Groupon scam occurs when you order meals off the “Specials” menu. The waitresses did not state the price of the meals (shame on me for not asking)... More

Veal piccata is amazing, some of the best sauce I've had and the fussili pasta is awesome. Eggplant parm was very good too. BYO too. Comparable to or better than much more expensive Italian meals I've had in Boston and elsewhere.

We visited pastalinas for dinner the other night. It's a small restaurant that allows you to bring your own wine etc. We had purchased a groupon and gave it a try. The server was attentive and our food came out hot. Can't say that it was the best Italian food that I've ever eaten, but can't say that it was... More

My wife and I have been going here for years. The food is great, we haven't found anything that we don't like (and we've gotten pretty much everything at this point). We also love the ambiance, it's the kind of place where you can be there for hours and not realize it. It's no frills, but in a good way.... More

A unique, small Italian restaurant that serves up homemade style Italian specialties. The atmosphere is great, playing lots of Frank Sinatra songs in background. The service was wonderful. BYOB and your appetite!

Went to this restaurant with a friend with no expectations other than to try out a new restaurant. After a brief wait we were seated in a clean, humble family dining area. Not bad. The server brought bread and seasoned oil, and it served as a calling card for the rest of the meal. In short: The food's not so... More

I've had the veal pinata so many times and it is delicous. Also the desserts, and specials are amazing.

We had a Groupon for dinner at Pastalina Restaurant. I chose the Friday and Saturday only voucher. There are only about 10 tables to the entire restaurant and it is a BYOB establishment. Something that we were told about as soon as we walked in much to our surprise. Buying our own liquor is ultimately better for us in the... More

Very good food - really enjoyed the fried artichoke as an appetizer - my guest had the gnocchi with sauce and cheese which was very good! I would go back again - ambiance a little week! Keep in mind they do not serve liquor (you can bring your own) and since everything is made to order make sure you are... More
