Very tasty GF dish. I only gave 4 stars since I've only been here once. Restaurant was a rather noisy.
First off- it is celiac safe and for that I give it two stars. Okay, it's on 23rd, nice to have a safe reliable option, but being Italian, it wasn't very good and reminded me of Olive Garden. For those of you looking for good pasta to make at home, try Jovial brown rice pasta, closest one I can find to real pasta-and non gf folks cannot tell the difference. The marinara sauce was little bland- I say try maybe Alfredo sauce or something else. Overall-just eh and okay I suppose.
Very informative staff- able to tell me what was gluten and dairy free. Delicious pasta with no troubles! Good drinks too, and clean.
Excellent gf pasta dishes! The staff demonstrated they were familiar with gf & were happy to accommodate me. They use separate pots & have dedicated gf utensils. I have celiac & did not have any symptoms after eating there. Highly recommend it!
Really good gluten free pasta here.
Gfree tiramisu and sub any gfree pasta at no cost! Excellent!
I got a plain, GF spaghetti dish with butter and cheese, and while I personally did not enjoy the food, the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. - My favorite part was the little flag stating "GLUTEN FREE" they had on my food when they brought it out. 😝💕
did well w gluten free. low on vegetables.
Great food and awesome service! I have been celiac for five years and I have never had gluten free pasta this good, plus the gluten free tiramisu was amazing! One top of that the waitress was extremely helpful, quick, and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Wonderful pasta! There's no up charge for gluten free noodles. My daughter and I get sick from the smallest contamination and we were fine after eating here. Knowledgable staff, very friendly, and would definitely come here again. Only thing that would make it better was if there was a replacement for the gluten filled bread.
They have a lot of options for gluten free although, like most restaurants, they include a liability clause saying they can't guarantee any dish to be completely gluten free. I had the gluten free spaghetti and basil pesto which was awesone. Not the best gluten free pasta I've ever had, was a bit gummy, but the pesto was great. I think the key with this restaurant is to be very clear about how you need your food prepared. I asked if they could cook the pasta in clean water and a pan and clean utensils and no bread and I didn't get sick. Maybe I got lucky? But I hope they open one of these in California soon.
Delicious gluten-free pasta dishes and tiramisu!
My waitress wasn't that attentive to my son and I being GF. The pasta was good. We ordered a salad and mine came out with bread even when I specifically said GF no croutons or bread. I sent it back and they brought a new one out. But by the time a new one was out it was entree time.
I am a Celiac and have eaten many times at Pastini's in Bend. Great service, great food and never have had a problem. Highly recommend!
We ate there last night. My daughter and I were sick today and think we got glutened.
I am celiac and have stomach issues at a lot of restaurants but never has it been here. Great GF pasta and great GF tiramisu.
My child loved the GF pasta which is made by Tinkyada. They have mastered cooking it just right. I bought the same pasta from the store but couldn't get it to cook as well. It nice to go to a pasta restaurant and have some options.
My wife thinks its fabulous! Great service and very knowledgable about gf. I had the gf spaghetti and sausage.
Believe it or not, this restaurant appears to be one of the safest in town when it comes to offering safe gluten-free food. As a celiac with a husband (a Chiropractic Sports Physician) who specializes in celiac disease and food allergies, my husband and I do a lot of research on safe restaurants in town (both for ourselves and our patients). Upon reviewing this restaurant, my husband, Dr. Jason Kremer, found that it was surprisingly safe for those with food allergies and gluten sensitivities.

Can sub GF pasta for free for most entrees
Pastini has knowledgeable servers and many options that are great! Love the caprese salad and the gluten free Gamboretti. Yumm!
