Pasta For The People

What is PastaBar

& How does it work?


Our fresh and bronze-die extruded dry pastas are available in a variety of different shapes and are sold by the half-pound or pound. To perfectly pair, choose from our selection of sauces that are respectful of tradition, but not bound by it. 

What's the deal with bronze-die

extruded pasta?

Bronze extrusion results in a rough, slightly porous texture which allows sauces and other ingredients to better cling to the pasta, giving you a finished product far superior to what you find in aisle 37.  


We release a new weekly meal kit menu

every Tuesday at 12pm.


Typically, you will find one of two options:

 A fully loaded pasta kit to make at home (ingredients and instructions included)


​ A "take & bake" meal that comes assembled and just needs some time in the oven.

Orders are accepted until 6pm on Thursday, for pick-up on

Fridays and Saturdays.

Feel free to add any additional goodies from our online shop.


You can order pastas for pick up on Fridays and Saturdays at Americano located at 11671 Catalpa Lane in Woodstock. Dry pastas and gift boxes are also available to ship nationwide.

You can find PastaBar products on the shelves at Fork It Foods in Crystal Lake and at Dad's Farm and Cafe in St. Joseph, MI

About Us

PastaBar Woodstock is the product of a husband and wife team, both veterans of Chicago's most beloved Italian restaurants. Obsessed -- like that's a bad thing! -- with Italian culture, wine and, most importantly, pasta, PastaBar is the purest form of Craig's operating philosophy...pasta for the people. We offer bronze-die extruded and hand-made pastas and traditional sauces utilizing ingredients of uncompromising quality sourced locally as well as from Italy.

PastaBar is our opportunity to share our love of these ingredients, this food and this life with the area we now call home.
