Pastaio is a new American restaurant, driven by the seasonal bounty of New England’s small farmers. Drawing influence from the iconic cuisines of the Mediterranean, the Pastaio team works to create an exceptional dining experience in a relaxed, casual atmosphere — located right down the street from the farmers market at 9 Parade St in Providence!
On April 30th, Pastaio announced on their Facebook feed that with a heavy heart, they will be closing their doors at the end of May.
From the start we have strived to bring a different sort of dining experience to Providence, and we feel that we were able to accomplish that through our handmade pasta, relationships with local farmers, and a team dedicated to providing generous food and service. Though we have thoroughly enjoyed this wild ride and our team has put their heart and soul into the restaurant, it is time for us to move on to different projects.
Our last service will be on Sunday, May 27th, We are not accepting new reservations and existing reservations will be honored. Parties with gift cards can call or email for a reservation or refund.
We cannot thank you all, Rhode Island, our customers, or our team (Day 1 Crew Pictured Here), enough to express how much you all truly mean to us. The support you all have shown since day one has exceeded our expectations and we will miss serving you the most. Pastaio Handmade pastas will still be available at Stock, Hope & Thyme, & Mercer’s Deli. We hope to see you all around soon, and again, we thank you.
We are ever grateful for Pastaio’s generosity and support for Farm Fresh RI and the Armory Farmers Market, and will take this benefit night as an opportunity to bid the Pastaio team best wishes on their next adventures! And we’ll look forward to enjoying their handmade pastas — available at Stock Culinary Goods, Hope & Thyme, and Mercer’s Deli.
