I adore dining here. The service is awesome and the food is the best! I order the ravioli which I could eat 3 plates of it because it's that dang good! My favorite part of this restaurant is the sauce they serve with the bread. Oh my I could eat it all day! Definitely a must try!

We visited this restaurant in downtown Syracuse early for dinner on a Monday. We got seated immediately but later the place was packed. We were in the first room by the bar and could see the pasta dinners prepared and made available for serving. The restaurant was larger than expected with several rooms. I had the fresh cheese ravioli with... More

This is a must visit on every trip to Syracuse. We go to stock up on the Hot Tomato oil to bring home, but stay for dinner. The Italian food is delicious and the portions are huge( large enough to share an entree). Go early for dinner as they don't take reservations and the place fills up quickly.

This is our favorite restaurant in Syracuse, bar none. Every time we come to Syracuse, which is several times a year, Pastabilities is always on our itinerary. We have ordered their Hot Tom Sauce over the internet, it's so good. Dip fresh bread in it, like at the restaurant, or spice up your home marinara. They concentrate on what they... More

From the discussion with the bartender about Prosecco to his helpful making of a cocktail with Aperol at my husband's request, to the prompt and attentive table service, great choice of food on the menu and generous portions, this was an excellent dinner out, so good that we returned a few days later. The main course of salmon on fennel... More

The restaurant had beautiful people, a very nice Alfredo fettucine, but persons were not very kind. The drink while waiting was very poor and expensive, but the beer during diner was nice.

Love this place. Easily go once a month to enjoy a glass of wine at the bar, some hot tomato oil and handmade cheese ravioli. Always delicious. I especially enjoy Pastas during the winter months for their cozy atmosphere.

One of the first restaurants in Armory Square, it's amazing that it has served consistently good food for so many years. We've tried most of their dishes and have never been disappointed. I like their sweet potato ravioli and my wife said she can't pick a favorite, it depends on what she feels like eating that night. It's all good.... More
