Great bread and dipping oil, limited menu, however, over priced and over rated. Service was not great.

Always busy- especially on days when something is happening at Syracuse U. But if you can get in DO IT! Home made bread and dip are wicked good. We've been here 4x and have yet to have a bad meal. Prices are reasonable too. Why not 5 stars? - service is Good but never special - atmosphere is always crowded

This is hands down the best food in syracuse. The spicy tomato is unforgettable! The pasta with meatballs is really great and its worth the wait. This is our favourite spot for date night

Their service is excellent. Their food is excellent. Their tomato oil is excellent and the bread to dip in it?? What else? Excellent. If you have a time constraint, that would be the only problem as we had a 30 minute wait. But the bar tenders are right on that.

My friend and I went here for dinner before a play. It was the first time I have had dinner here although I have been here for lunch. What a find! First the service was stellar. The restaurant was quite busy but our waiter was on top of it. The food - I can't say enough! It was served at... More

Heard good things but honestly not that impressive except for the spicy tomato oil which is delicious! If you go there for any reason, make sure it's for that!

The food is amazing, I just wish the staff was friendlier. Cool atmosphere in downtown Syracuse. Eat local.

Lunch here is served cafeteria style and is very quick moving. I LOVE the Sonoma Caesar Salad, and of course the pasta with Hot Tom!

First time visiting the states! Had to try Pastabilities after reading about it online, we're not disappointed at all! Amazing menu, very busy. A lot of love goes into the making of the food, wicked chicken riggi was awesome, I'd love the recipe.

Pastabilities is the best! Be sure to try their Chicken Riggies (Beware - they've got quite a kick)! As I'm sure many others have said, they serve stretch bread with spicy tomato oil, and it is heavenly. Really. The service has always been great, no matter how busy they are. It is a small restaurant, but the atmosphere is so... More
