Went to eat with a few friends from college we all had a good time. Food was very good, atmosphere was comfortable, and our server was pleasant. Only issue was service was a bit slow.

I love coming here for lunch or dinner when I'm in town. Be aware that lunch is cafeteria style only, but still just as good! The only grip I have with them is that since they're so popular, they're always in a rush to turn over your table. The past 3 dinners I've had there, and very especially this past... More

Visited here after a football game and luckily got in right before all the crowds hit. We had a group of 10 and were seated within 15 mins to our own private room with a great Italian style mural on the wall. The restaurant was crowded and noisy but being in that room was a nice separation from the noise.... More

I have been to Pastabilities four times. Everytime I had great service every time. Cold steak on third visit, but we had a pretty large group. Still was very flavorful. The spicy sauce dip for the bread is outstanding. If you have not tried this restaurant it is a must!

The food was amazing and definitely priced well. It was nice for a date, but could be a little busy and loud for some people's taste. The only bad part is that the restaurant doesn't take reservations.

This place is awesome. Fresh, local and flavorful. Their weekday lunch specials are worth the trip to the center of the city. We have never had a bad meal and can't say enough about the value. The name says it all, pasta! Great staff, very helpful and always smiling. They are doing it right every time.

Came into the restaurant with high expectations and had some issue with a server and her handling of our concerns, but the follow thru from management was exemplary and I will highly endorse the restaurant as a superior experience. The food was very good and the manager went out of his way to rectify my concerns. I do appreciate this... More

Really 2.5 dots, if TA allowed that. The bar was pretty nice. Had a decent cocktail and the beer list was nice. The food was just "eh". The bread and spicy hot tomato oil was really good. My wife's chicken dish was so so. My son's had the pasta with tomato sauce an left half of it. I tasted the... More

I had the carbonara, and it was huge and delicious! Worth the 45 minute wait! I will definitely return again next time I'm in the 'cuse!

My review has everything to do with the fact that I was here on a busy Friday night and the line to get into this restaurant was out the door and down the block! I hate to focus on the noise level because the staff was wonderful & the food was very good but the deafening din was what I... More
