Dining Guide

George’s Pastaria

Perhaps the friendliest spot in town, this Italian eatery serves up traditional pastas and pizzas to loyal fans in a warm, old-school kind of space. The portions are generous, the flavors fresh, and the wine list respectable. Order this to go: Our go-to is a brick oven pizza, the Margherita in particular—the dough hand-tossed for that wonderful chewy, crisp crust and just the right coverage of sauce, cheese, and toppings. Pastas are reliably good; we’re partial to the rigatoni campagnolo, with mild Italian sausage crumbles in a creamy tomato sauce. George does seafood quite well, so it’s a good option if you live a short drive away or decide to dine in. Case in point: pan-seared redfish topped with sautéed spinach, roasted tomatoes, and sweet shrimp in a white wine sauce. The sumptuous chicken leek soup is food for the soul. Pro tip: The website is a bit clunky but navigable, although orders must be phoned in. During peak hours, parking can be tight, but a couple spaces are reserved for takeout.
