Il Pastaio in Winthrop

kj | May 27, 2003 01:05 PM

Happy to list my first post since moving to Revere, although its not for a restaurant in Revere. Il Pastaio, aka "The Pastaman" is an absolutely fantastic Italian restaurant in Winthrop. In the month or so since living here, I've eaten there four times, twice for take out and twice sitting there. It is BYOB, and located at 115 Winthrop Shore Drive with views of the ocean. The food has been consistently good.

The food is very affordable ($8-13 plate), with tons of options for vegetarians, meateaters, and those somewhere in between (I eat seafood, but no meat). I have tried several pasta dishes - homemade Gnocchi all'Amalifitana with tomato and mozzarella, ravioli aragosta (stuffed with lobster in a cream sauce), tortellini alfredo and a special: spinach fettucini with gorgonzola sauce. All of them have been great, although the spaghetti with calamari suffered in comparison, since the spaghetti was from a box. One person had a pasta e fagioli soup that the chef made vegetarian especially for them, and it was thick and flavorul.

Definitely worth making the trip, or stopping by on the way home from the beach. Phone is 617-539-9990. They deliver.
