Sat at the bar and kept it simple. Ordered a cold Labatt Blue Light which came complete with a typical NY bartender, full of jokes and personality. Order pasta bolgnese. Awesome! Fresh and lite and very tasty. They serve braed8with a spicy tomato oil which is kind of like legal crack. Great atmosphere and can ear outdoor. A must eat

Excellent atmosphere and great food. It can be a bit $$ for what it is, but you expect it. The wait has been quite ridiculous since Guy Fietti visited, but it is to be expected. The bread and hot oil are delish.

This is a very cool experience. The line was out the door for lunch (served cafeteria style) and it took about 25 minutes to get through it. There was plenty of open tables despite customers pouring in. I had the Thai beef since my coworkers and I saw everyone getting it plus I tried the angel hair with their house... More

How is this rated so highly? Waited an hour for a table only to eat what is at best an average meal. I think you could do better at an Olive Garden which isn't saying much. Have other reviewers eaten decent pasta before? What a disappointment. Another example of hype over substance. Do yourself a favor and try something else.

Try the tomato and hot oil with fresh bread. Delicious manicotti all made with fresh pasta. All set in Armory Square. You won't be disappointed.

Pasta's never disappoints! At lunchtime it is 'cafeteria ' style which makes it easily accessible for sit down or take back to your desk. Love the fresh salads at lunch and daily specials. The hot tomato oil is a favorite over pasta with locatelli cheese - a must do and ask for extra as dipping sauce for the amazing stretch... More

We took my son and his friends for dinner at this restaurant on a Monday evening. This restaurant does not take reservations. It is a very busy restaurant so that the wait can be as long as 45 minutes. The neighborhood is very nice with several restaurants are not far from the residence Inn by Marriott. We ordered the Calamari... More

Visiting family and friends in Syracuse - more than a few suggested Pastabilities for dinner.....spot on! Arrived early (5:30 p.m.) so we had a beer at the bar and caught up for a bit. I asked the hostess if I should put my name on a list - and that we would be ready to be seated in 10-15 minutes.... More

We sat outside to dine on a beautiful night in Syracuse. Our two dogs settled right in and the waiter was kind to bring them a nice bowl of water. The food was amazing. We had the spicy tomato oil as a starter and it was very good. Wine was reasonably priced. The main courses were equally as good. Everything... More
