I really wanted to like this place, as I had seen some good reviews. My mum’s crab and chilli spaghetti was decent enough; I ordered a cacio e pepe and I think it must have been waiting for the spaghetti to ready, as halfway through eating my pasta started to congeal and get clumpy. Urrrgh!
We also ordered a nduja sandwich, a reasonable burrata and some sourdough (which I wouldn’t bother with next time).
I just was a bit disappointed. The people near us were eating the daily special and that looked good, so I might give Pastaio another go. I just can’t recommend it right now based on that cacio e pepe.
