My husband and I along with his parents visited AZ on the week of 9/15. We are from RI and locally have an extensive, and famous variety of Italian food. Asking a local for a dinner suggestion he mentioned Pasto and we decided to try it. We are VERY happy we did. The food was delicious, with a rich tasting red sauce, and a Carbonara so full with flavor I was bummed I didn't get it myself. The wine list was satisfactory and the portions large. Our waitress was extremely pleasant, personal and attentive. I hope she did well on her bone exam in nursing school. :-)
Another wonderful find was the owner makes mead a wine made from Honey. It was so delightful we had to purchase a bottle. If your ever in the area, you can't go wrong stopping in for a bite at Pasto!
