Description: Inspired by the farms, vineyards and waters of the Pacific Northwest, we at Pastini are dedicated to serving up two of life’s greatest pleasures… pasta and wine. We love how a steaming bowl of pasta warms your hands as well as your spirits. We love the sound a cork makes when it nudges away from the bottle. Using responsibly sourced ingredients, we craft craveable dishes with a local sensibility that is true to our roots. Our thoughtfully curated wine list celebrates both stellar Northwest wineries, and small family-owned vineyards in Italy. With every meal, we aim to bring our guests together to share made-from-scratch meals that are seasoned with laughter and great wine.

I ordered the Pasta Pomodoro and added chicken, very flavorful with the fresh basil and sautéed garlic and tomatoes. Very fresh.
My husband ordered the lasagna, he said it seemed very authentic with yummy cheese and great Italian spices.
Very nice atmosphere and location. We definitely will visit again when we are in Bend

Tastes like everything comes from a bag or a box. Very average taste and presentation. Service is ok, not the best. Lot's of places in Bend are creative and authentic, this one, not so much.

We went on a Thursday night at 5:30 with 2 friends. One of our friends had lunch here a few days before and said her shrimp fettucinni was great. So, she had it again and enjoyed it. My husband had ziti with red sauce and meatballs. The ziti was very dry as well as the meatballs. He asked for more sauce, and was charged $1 extra. I hate it when a place charges for every little thing, especially when there is not enough sauce on the pasta to begin with. Our friend's husband had fettucini with chicken. He didn't care for the white sauce, so had some of my husband's side of red sauce. Which by the way came in a thimble size dish. I had the spicy Italian sausage with wheat spaghetti. Which was served barely warm. :( It tasted OK, but bland. We also had a bread basket that was good. The server was the best part. She was very nice and attentive. The atmosphere here reminds me of a fast food joint. We were seated at a tiny booth and we asked to move, because we felt cramped. We moved to a table with a bench and 2 hard chairs. Not exactly comfy. I guess they don't want customers to stay long. I think Olive Garden is much better. You get more bang for your buck there! Flat Bread next door was super busy, maybe we will go there next time if we want a river view with our meal.

The food and service were good but there were several disappointments.

We ordered the scampi appetizer which was excellent but there were barely 7 shrimp for $10.50, not $10 as the website indicates. After that everything was a la carte.

The Caesar salad was good but had hardly any dressing and we had to ask for more.

My husband ordered the pasta with meat sauce Bolognese. The waitress asked if he wanted garlic bread with it and he said yes, expecting that any self-respecting Italian restaurant would automatically include that anyway. It came as two VERY thin slices that were over-toasted making the crust was so hard he couldn’t eat it, and we were charged $2.00 for it. The sauce just barely covered the pasta and had very little meat in it. When he asked for more sauce we were told they would have to charge extra for that. The waitress was able to substitute marinara sauce at no charge but of course it changed the taste.

My pasta with chicken Marsala was very good but there were only a few chopped pieces of chicken that you had to hunt for.

Be aware that they have a lot of tables cramped together, so if you like having to lean over and talk loud to make yourself heard, this is the place to come.
