A good Italian dining experience

I had not been there for years, but stopped in for supper Sunday evening. Hoped for baked ziti, which they didn't have, so chose the Tuscan trio. I often opt for a combo of multiple entrees. It was very good, though I will say I was a little disappointed in the lasagna. Waiter was very good.

We tried Pastabilities for the first time this weekend. We are in Decatur frequently bit had never heard of it until then. Price points were good for a nicer Italian place. We like the endless salad although the salad was just ok, nothing spectacular. The breadsticks on the other hand are amazing! Totally worth going just for the breadsticks. The... More

Italian restaurant with okay food. The service is good, but the food is nothing special. I have found chain restaurants that offer better tasting Italian food.

Very nice location and also the ambience. Can't beat their super soft fresh bread sticks! They have a fine selection of Italian wine too.

The same offerings as Olive Garden. breadsticks and salad. The salad was overdressed and soggy. The pasta dishes were mediocre at best.

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.
