Not great, not bad, just average. Paciarino is a great idea, flawed by poor technique and over-reliance on packaged ingredients. I brought family there and we all agreed our pasta was good, but over-cooked and over-salted. Antipasti mostly consisted of premade (albeit premium) spreads.
This would be a pretty good place if execution were better and a little more was made in house. I'll be honest, this place would probably be a very good restaurant in any other place, but Portland has far too much competition for it to stand out. It's a good value, both for food and wine.
