A tasty treat.

I have been to Pastabilities for work events and personal, they never disappoint. It was a busy beautiful evening and without reservations we had to wait a bit, but it was worth it.

Great food. Chicken Parmesan was excellent. Good beers on tap. Very nice bar to wait in. Vibrant area with lots of activity going on. Loved it - thanks!

House made fettuccine with delicious Vodka sauce, perfect meatball heroes and Pesto with Chicken over pasta are stuff that dreams are made of. But wait there's more! Dip your bread into an order of spicy tomato oil. That my friends brings you to Nirvana.

Got there and there was a line out the door(sign of a winner). Hour and a half wait turned into only a 40 min wait cause the place is a well oiled machine. Speaking of oil, the spicy oil and stretchy bread is worth the price of admission. Entrees are worthy of all the hype(triple DDD endorsed, thanks guy). Staff... More

I've had many great meals at Pastabilities, an average one and a terrible one. Unfortunately, the difference has been the server and the cooks. I love the concepts, the seasonal menus, and the spicy sauce with bread. Sometimes the sauce tastes fresh and other times its frozen and reheated, at least it tastes that way. I am either wowed or...

Met some old friends for dinner on a Monday night, and still had a 30 minute wait for this popular restaurant. The spicy tomato oil served with fresh bread makes the trip worthwhile. It is not too spicy for those of us who cannot tolerate spicy foods, and quite addicting. We ordered 2 orders of the pink vodka cream and... More

After almost 30 years, we returned to Pastabilities, and had not one, but two evening dinners there. On both occasions the drinks, food and service were wonderful. On the second evening the staff even loaned an umbrella so we could get our car during a downpour! Since Pastabilities does not take reservations, there is normally a wait -- but the... More

My friends and I came here for dinner the first night of her bachelorette party. The wait for our table was not long, we ordered drinks and had a good time waiting. Prices we fair. I wanted to do a surprise dessert for my friend. My waitress was awesome. She wrote on the dessert, got a candle, was very secretive... More

We had a great experience at Pastabilities. Our server Erik H was very knowledgeable and made some great suggestions! The Hot Tomato Oil is delicious. So much so I bought a jar to take home! We'll definitely go back!
