I came in for lunch with some friends. The menu is really hard to read. I did not like that the only soda choices were some tiny cans of diet pepsi. A tad overpriced and no service of note. Missing the charm it reportedly has.

This is probably my favorite restaurant in the world! Get there a bit early because it can get very busy, even on weekdays, but it is so worth the wait! The food is phenomenal and the service is great! Their specialty spicy tomato oil they serve free with bread at each table is amazing!! Their pink vodka pasta is wonderful... More

We ate here back in December. We were excited to try it out after reading reviews but no one in our party of four would make an effort to return again. The tables are very packed in and the food was bland. The bolognese was just not good and the wicky wicky's were hot without much more. We wanted to... More

One of my all time favorite restaurants ever. They bend over backwards to make your meal as enjoyable as ever. I love their food and the staff is awesome. Great atmosphere and menu might be limited but you can always find something that suits your taste buds. I love Pastas...............

We drove up from utica today hoping to grab a great lunch today but as we walked in no one greeted us we were standing there for over 5 minutes before someone came and told us its cafeteria style lunch and when we got up to order we were told they ran out of wicked chicken riggies. Very disappointing. One... More

Pastabilities, Manager at Pastabilities, responded to this review

Running out of chicken riggies is disappointing (and rare), and we sincerely apologize for the disappointment, especially after you took the time to visit us from Utica. The cookies are great, but they certainly don't make a good substitute for chicken riggies. We will look into what went wrong during lunch and make sure it doesn't happen again in the... More

Three of us stopped and had a great Saturday lunch! Meatball sub special of the day which came with a side salad (we had bacon, cheese potato salad). Fresh homemade fettuccine with house red sauce and a meatball. Rigatoni with house red sauce and a meatball. One side of bread. Two San Pelligrino sodas and a bottle of classic coke.... More
