What Makes Pastina Different


At Pastina Rustic Italian Kitchen in Mentor Ohio, our mission is to create memorable dishes prepared with fresh local ingredients, and serve them in a truly inspired setting.

The “farm to table” concept is alive and well at Pastina. When you dine with us, your dollars are re-invested into your own community since we buy product from small local Ohio farms. We get our vegetables from Rainbow Farms in Perry, chicken from Gerber Farms in Kidron, and beef and pork from New Creation Farms in Chardon.

We are proud to offer our own hand crafted pasta, our own fresh baked, no additive focaccia and ciabatta bread, and our own pizza dough that ferments for 72 hours before being baked in an Italian stone oven. All of our sauces, dressings, sausage, meatballs and desserts are prepared on site as well.

Our Bar is a wonderful place to relax with friends or family. It is crafted from a single black walnut tree and features a great wine list, 16 beers on tap, and cocktails made by hand with chef-made syrups, fresh squeezed juice, and fresh herbs.Fresh Food and best bar in Mentor Ohio

Patron review:

"This is a great restaurant and I'm really glad it opened in Mentor. I have been here several times with my family & have never been disappointed. The staff is wonderful and the owners, who come out & talk to all the guests, are so warm & inviting. They have amazing service going beyond what is expected to please the guest. One time I was looking for a special they had posted the night before as I came in for a Sunday lunch, they were no longer serving that special but Matt the manager who is amazing, had the kitchen make it special order for us. Matt is incredibly accommodating to all the guest & it really is true that the owners & the staff believe in exceptional service. As for the food, as an Italian living here in the States, I can honestly tell you it is really good! It is not your "traditional" Italian American, it is a fusion of modern twists, keeping the premised of fresh, simple ingredients which are so important in Italian cuisine. I had just come back from Italy a few months earlier when I went here for the first time & the food they are creating is very similar to some of the new, younger bistros opening up throughout Italy. Well done guys!! Keep up the great work! It is one of my favorite places to go to in Lake County!" - Rita D. (facebook review June 2015)




"Drove past the restaurant and decided to try it out. Excellent food and service. The calamari is great. Love the spicy sauce and Wasabi mayo. The marinara sauce and bread is so good. We bought a pint of it when our waiter said they sell it to customers. Pasta bolognese is so good. Very good restaurant. Like the farm to table and local product concept. The pasta is worth the money for fresh made pasta. We will be back for more." - Juan S. of St. Johnsbury, VT (Yelp review June 6, 2015)
