High expectations because we've eaten there before with great food and excellent service, so we wanted to go back for a special occasion. Food was good but service ruined the experience. Complained and was told to not ask for this waitress next time, no worries because there won't be a next time.

My wife and I finally got around to visiting Pastaria 811. We've passed it many times, but today we stopped in for lunch and are we ever glad we did. It was fantastic!!

We were expecting the typical beach tourist food, but it was so much better than that. The wait staff was friendly and unhurried, able to accommodate a selection not quite on the menu, and the food was excellent. The live music was a surprise. I had thought they put another CD on he was so good. Definitely worth going here... More

After a long day of beach walking and exploring, we decided to stay in and order some comfort food. After reviewing all the choices in the area, we decided upon Pastaria 811- it proved to be the right choice. The pasta fagioli and the shrimp bisque warmed our souls while the little venice pizza delighted our taste buds. Very well... More

We first went right after they moved and were very disappointed; the atmosphere and the food have improved since our initial visit.
