We were referred by hotel staff to Pacini while in St Jean. We dropped in at supper time with 12 people and were graciously accommodated. The staff were friendly and bilingual. The menu appealed to a broad range of tastes and ages. The food was excellent all around! The kids enjoyed grilling their own bread and the selection of toppings.... More

Ambiance and decoration are very nice. But it is very expensive for pasta... There is not many choice on the menu.

We're sorry you did not find your account with us. We offer different inputs (shared or not), pasta, grilled meats, salads and delicious pizzas. Perhaps you will come back one for lunch ? Our special Midi Presto will certainly be more responsive to your needs. More

After long flight, then checking in at Holiday Inn Express, we craved good food in a quiet atmosphere. Front desk clerk Julie recommended Pacini's and she was spot on right. Warm welcome upon arrival, sweet service from Laurence, house wine is poured from the bottle at your table, help yourself to the bread bar (good selection and various spreads), and... More

Food was fine, but expensive for pasta....nothing special. Very friendly and quick service. We were a family of four, ate only simple pasta, soft drinks and no dessert. The bill came to $120. Unfortunately, we won't be back.

I'm a visitor from NYC to Montreal. I walked into an Italian restaurant where you're greeted in french but the entire staff is bi-lingual and the food is AWESOME!!! The decor of this place is also amazing and a huge thanks to my waiter for the day Guillaume thank you so much for an awesome experience.

My daughter took me there for my birthday last night. I had the American Pizza, and she had the carbonara linguini and my bf had the alfredo linguini. All was very good except the pasta dishes could have had more sauce. The Bloody cesars were excellent as was the chocolate cake and profiterole. Loved the bread bar, only 4 choices... More

Obviously, this franchise does not make their own food, or very little of it. My Lasagna was from a frozen batch and was served cold in the middle. Not impressed for the cost.. I thought it would be home made.. I guess I was wrong...
