“Good food but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We dined one night during our stay at the Acclaim. The waitresses were very friendly and efficient, despite the restaurant being quite busy. There is a wide variety of things to choose from the menu. The self serve bread bar is something different that we have never experienced. The food was extremely good and plentiful. But we did feel it was a bit expensive.

“Excellent Italian Food and Cool Bread Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

We went to Pacini's for dinner. The bread bar allows you to toast 5 different types of breads with about 6 different oils/butter or 4 toppings. Its cool.

We were seated quickly and the servers were helpful. Service was quick.
The appetisers and entrees came quickly and were fresh, hot and tasty.
Dessert was also good.

“Bland”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

bland pasta, blander service - expensive. Nice decor and atmosphere. Bread Bar where you can toast your own bread was nice but selection of breads was grocery store brands.

“Hit and miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

I finally had my order taken after 20 minutes of sitting at the table. Loved the bread bar where one can toast their bread with a variety of spreads (loved the pesto and sun dried tomato). The pizza was really good, but the spaghetti was a let down, not enough sauce and sort of bland. Nice interior, though.

“Average Italian food in a nice setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

The decor is very nice and the staff are very friendly. The food us just ok. Would have liked some smaller portions to choose from for dinner. Breakfast was much better than my dinner.
