We went to Pastabilities before a show at the Landmark Theater and it did not disappoint -- except the food wasn't 100%. It was a Sunday so we got right in (5-10 minute wait at the bar) and it was definitely worth it. The vodka sauce was good, but it wasn't as good as some other local italian restaurants... The Amatriciana was very good, but the pasta needed to be rolled out more and not quite as thick. It is a SOLID meal though, and we definitely enjoyed the ambiance. For going out in Downtown Syracuse afterwards - Pastabilities is a good solid choice.

We absolutely LOVE their spicy tomato oil. They bring it to the table and we always buy more to bring home. Their homemade breads are incredible too. Cocktails? My personal favorite - the pomtini! Gotta try it!

The food at Pastabilities is very good but I'm not sure the long wait for a table is worth it. We had to wait half an hour for a table in the overcrowded bar area where we constantly found ourselves in the way of aggressive serving staff trying to do their job - not fun! Once we got to our table, the service was solid and the dining experience pleasant. A tasty pasta dipping sauce with bread is laid on the table while your meal is prepared. The pasta meals are very tasty and the wine list is solid and reasonable. We like this restaurant but the waits are long and unpleasant with the crowding.
