Located in the Heights neighborhood, Mastrantos is a family-style restaurant serving global fare. Featuring a glass-enclosed “Dough Lab,” diners can watch chefs at work creating handmade pasta, fresh croissants and kolaches.
The restaurant is owned by longtime couple Xavier and Mari Godoy, who spent time in Italy working in restaurants to get a taste of the true Italian way of cooking. Paired with their Venezuelan backgrounds, and love for flavors from across the world, this eatery is a unique spot for both breakfast and dinner.

Breakfast includes items like Venezuelan kolaches, French croissants, Arepas and breakfast tacos served with guajillo carnitas, avocado, egg and black beans. Beautifully and freshly baked pastries and popular arepas are welcomed companions to the Italian imported coffees. For dinner, dig into sweet purple agnolotti topped with sage and butter sauce, or a coconut curry linguine made with black pasta.
All of Mastrantos’s mouth-watering dishes can be enjoyed in their sleek, modern and welcoming restaurant. The settings hosts central bar surrounded by light wooden-top tables perfectly lit with industrial bulbs.
