My husband's family and I ( a big party of 15) went to the Pastini Pasteria downtown 9 located 911 SW Taylor at 9th Avenue last sunday (I couldn't find the restaurant downtown on citysearch so I thought I would just write the the review here.) My husbands' family is from out of state and we were all just trying to have a good time. We ordered our drinks, everyone was served after a while, except for my mother-in-law who had to remind the waitress of her drink, all the kids said that they had to remind the waitress about their refills for their soda.The waitress acted like she was so so busy, when there was actually only 2 other couples in the restaurant besides us, and other waitresses. Anyway, I am not writing a bad review about the food at this place. EVERYBODY loved their food, it was so yummy. But we were REALLY DISAPPOINTED by the service and the bald tattooed manager who worked there. He came to tell us to lower our voice, when the other two couples in the restaurant had actually already left and we we were the only ones in the restaurant. He was obnoxious and rude, and kept hanging around our table listening to our conversations. It is A REAL SHAME, because we really loved the food, but WOULD NEVER GO BACK THERE just for the people that work there. Plus, we had to wait AGES for our check, they were very incapable !!
Pros: good food
Cons: Atrocious manager and incapable waitresses, bad restaurant to dine with a large group.
