Went there to celebrate an anniversary dinner. Got right in as we did go early. The only issue I would ever have there is it is a little noisy. But unbelievable food. They make simple dishes that are fresh and superb. Service was spot on. Can't wait to go there again.

Everyone is talking about their spicy tomato oil - and there is a good reason for it! It's WONDERFUL! They give it to you with bread so you can dip. That convinced me I wanted to have it on my pasta. I had the fettuccine with the spicy tomato oil with their homemade meatballs. The meatballs were fine, but that... More

Yum Yum Yum. Loved the hot tomato oil sauce, the Wicky Wicky Riggies, the Pasta Bolognese. Wish we lived closer. We would be regular customers! Dorothy and Ed from Ontario, Canada

Their spicy tomato oil is perfect for dipping the bread or as an entree over pasta. I would recommend that every pasta lover put this restaurant on their bucket list!

Food was decent. Tomato sauce so so. Ambiance good, place was busy for a Sunday night. Bathrooms were my issue. One each for each sex in a narrow hall. So customers waiting in line, while servers walking thru with food to be delivered as person opening the br door to exit. Both myself and another customer looked at each other... More

My wife and I stopped here for dinner passing through Syracuse and we weren't disappointed. The brew, food and service were all top notch. My wife and I both had the pasta bolognese. We arrived around 6:20 and were seated immediately. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. The pasta and meat sauce were outstanding. Like I said, nothing to complain... More

Never, never disappointed at Pastas! Unless you are looking to get in and get out quick! There is always a line but once you taste the food you will forget about how long you waited! The hot oil dipping sauce will ease away and stress from the day. The only disappointment is the wine list....a few years ago the wine... More

I had the flatbread with duck bacon, goat cheese and tart cherries. Very cheesy but good. The hot tomato oil was very good. Best place we tried in town.

Came here with the family this past labor day weekend. I'm extremely picky about my food especially Italian food. This place by far is in my top 5 Italian restaurants that I've been to. The calamari to start is amazing seasoned perfectly and cooked to perfection. Portions are generous and the Chicken riggis are excellent and the sauce to match... More
