Pastaria 811® has been serving authentic Italian dishes in Pawleys Island since 1994. We serve Italian comfort food, pasta, pizza, parms, seafood, veal and chicken dishes. We cook from scratch, the same way we have been for so many years. Chef David bakes the bread, makes all the sauces and dressings and his kitchen staff have been cooking with him for 20+ years. There is also a full bar serving happy hour on week nights from 5-7 pm in the bar only, and, a small bites bar menu. We have live entertainment on Saturday (and Sunday's during Summer) evening with Robert DiLeo singing classics, contemporary to modern music. At Pastaria 811® we enjoy getting to know our guests and are proud to be serving the Lowcountry for over 20 years. Now enjoy our famous ABRUZZI TOMATOES® at home! Purchase them in the Restaurant, at local Lowes Food Stores and on Amazon.com.
Our restaurant is available for private events: weddings, private luncheons (30+), dinners, cocktail receptions, and more. We would love to discuss how to be a part of your next event. We can also cater your function at your location. Call 843-237-5811 to book yours today.
We feature products fresh from the farm to your table and buy local as much as possible. We believe serving and preparing superior quality food requires knowing your source. Our customers deserve the best quality food their dollar can buy them. We are proud to source from: Lee's Farmers Market, Prestige Farms, Pawleys Island Paper, Pawleys Island Wine & Spriits, Harrelson's Seafood and many other local sources.
