Cute typical downtown Syracuse local restaurant. Food was good; everything seemed fresh and responsibly priced. The service was good but seemed to rush a bit to turn tables quickly. The space is a little of a tight fit but gives the restaurant character. I am typically picky but really have nothing bad to say...it was a good experience over all.... More

Went to Pastabilities and immediately asked myself why I hadn't gone in so long! We began at the bar, which is a great way to wait to be seated (only ~20 minute wait which *flew* by!). The eclectic arrangement is difficult or impossible to match. The wait staff were friendly and didn't mind when we *still* hadn't made up our... More

Not only do they have a swanky sexy restaurant, but they also have their own bakery across the street. You should not go there without trying the Duck Bacon Flat Bread Pizza. In fact, Guy Fieri visited this joint on his show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and sang this Pizza’s praises.

Very good pasta and sauces, very busy when I went, but service was quite good. Would definitely return to try other menu items.

Went for lunch with 6 people and a baby. Everything was excellent and portion sizes were abundant for the price. Definitely would come again.

Went for dinner on a Monday night in December with my wife and father in law. Waited about 15 minutes for a table. I was impressed at the décor, location and architecture. Our waitress was professional and knowledgeable. I am not really a pasta guy (restaurant was wife's selection) but I figured I should try what the restaurant is known... More

Ok so we went for lunch, will. Go back for dinner. Lunch is a time limited affair I believe 11-2:30 you enter and go right into a line at bar, it is counter service but fresh made! Excellent food! Very quilt and not expensive. Seat yourself, water available in big urns, to go containers on table. No need to bus... More

Pasta was fantastic . I had the carbanero and hubbie had the vodka cream sauce-both were excellent. Brought home two jars of the spicy tomato oil.
