Visited this restaurant again on our return to Chester. The food and service were as good as our last visit. My grandson wanted to deviate slightly from what was on the menu and this was no trouble for them.

We were regular visitors to Pacino's 15+ years ago when it was a much smaller establishment, having moved back to the Chester area we were excited to see whether it was still as good. The restaurant is now much larger, and modern, and I am...More

Restaurant is off the beaten track and in a housing estate rather than the high street. This is a family run business serving great food. Prices are very reasonable and staff very friendly. Would certainly go back if visit Chester again!

This little local restaurant is tucked away but well worth the effort in finding. Family run for over 30 years they definitely know how to serve Italian food. The food is delicious! Pasta at its best.

Lovely atmosphere with excellent food, good value and charming team. Really recommended and I will certainly be back. A little way out of the centre in an unlikely spot but well worth a few minutes walk.

Pacino's was established in 1986 and has built up a reputation with the local people and visitors alike for the finest cuisine and affordable wine list that can be found anywhere in the city of Chester. Since its launch the restaurant has tippled in size, now with over 80 covers. Pacino's has however maintained its high levels of quality and service. Pacino's offers an intimate atmosphere and a friendly personal service that can only be found in a family run business. Perhaps that's why we are often referred to as "Chester's Hidden Gem". Gluten free available on request.
