Long Heritage

Farm-to-Table Italian Cuisine with a Modern Twist

We grew up in kitchens. Literally. We are surrounded by food and wine in our family’s restaurant. Food is the bond that binds us all. That’s all we know. And, it’s the reason we decided to create a family restaurant together. To honor friendliness, good food and a commitment to the local economy, Pastina serves only the most genuine Italian cuisine. It’s in our DNA. We have it all, from scratch dough in our Italian pizza oven to daily handcrafted pasta in our Italian pasta machine. While we are proud of our Italian sourcing, we also curate from local farmers and vendors. Farm-to-table is trendy now, but it’s also our heritage. We prioritize growing our own food and supporting local farmers. As a result, our menu is always changing and obtained locally. We are proud to know where our food comes from and share it with you the same way our parents and grandparents were when they happily fed their family and local diners. See you soon, friends!

Best Quality

Fresh Ingredients

Baked fresh daily and always preservative-free; our bread and pasta dough are prepared using flour made with organically-grown grains from a small batch farmer in California. The result? A super light dough that never feels heavy.

Locally Sourced

From Our Garden

We curate local produce, locally-raised beef and pork and antibiotic/hormone-free chicken from small Ohio Farms and purveyors, so every meal you share with us has roots in our community.

Made with Love

A True Scratch Kitchen

Every loaf of bread, serving of pasta, hand-rolled piece of gnocchi, scoop of gelato and batch of sauce is made on-site. And, it’s this commitment that elevates our dishes and team.
