Seems like trying to cut corners to make an extra buck. Poor service.. Poor quality.. Actually shocked it's still open. Needs an overhaul. And possibly an actual chef; one that doesn't need a microwave

Absolutely love the breadsticks. If you only ordered salad.. go for the breadsticks. The lasagna is the best! Great place to take your family for pasta. Friendly atmosphere and good service

Nicely decorated restaurant in the middle of the newly renovated Downtown Decatur area. Good food & decent prices. Staff is attentive and pleasant to deal with. Wonderful breadsticks ! I enjoy Pastabilities more that Olive Garden because it has a more relaxing atmosphere.

We stopped here for lunch on a Sunday while in town for a football game. It was one of the few places open downtown. The restaurant is large with booths and tables and some areas sectioned off with drop cloths, almost like a tent. There is a full bar and they also have gelato. They have endless salad and bread...

The service provided by our wait staff was excellent. We had a group of eight people and she kept our drinks filled. Most of us love our food, but the only down side was the vegetables were nothing more than out of the bag and cold instead of cooked. Because of the cold vegetables it made the rice cold as... More

I was recently in Decatur visiting family. My boyfriend and I stopped in the restaurant to have a couple of drinks. We sat at the bar and we're greeted by the owner. She was so friendly and helpful. We asked a lot of questions about local places around the area. She answered all of them and even gave directions. She... More
