We had to wait an hour and a half for a table but that is not a complaint because anything good is worth waiting for. It had great ambiance and when we did sit the waitress was attentive. My husband had lasagna and I had "Wicky wicky chicken riggies". It was amazing and my husband said it was the best... More

This establishment defines the term "dining experience perfection". Food was perfect time, prices perfect, staff perfect. No more needs be said?

If you enjoy pasta this is the place to go. They make all of their pasta fresh and home made in house as well as the different types of sauces. If you like spices they make their own spicy dipping sauce for your bread. It was such a hit in the restaurant they jarred it and sell it at Wegmans.

Caferteria style but great food. The flatbread special was great as well as the sauce for the pasta my wife got.

College bar type place. Loud , pushing, rude people . wait at 6 pm was 1 hr and 55 min covered in alcohol by time we got our table. Service was very poor, this is why it takes so long to get a table , and not because it takes 2 hours to make dinner. Thrown a plate of chemical... More

Pastabilities makes some of their own pastas, has a fantastic burger, and a great bar with a changing selection of craft brews. Love the salad of the month! Great spot for both lunch and dinner! Fantastic service!

The lunch "cafeteria" style is the best deal in town! AWESOME FOOD, great vibe, and an affordable price. The full dinners are high quality Italian fare. The flavors burst in your mouth. The hot 🍅oil paired with their famous stretch bread is to die for!

I don't recall doing a review in December but that was my first visit. I had a few different drinks at the bar and every one was delicious. Even though the place was completely packed you didn't get that feeling you were being rushed. I would recommend getting here around 5:30. And I say that because you can have a... More

Here with wife on 1/27. Arrived at 5:30. Waited only 20 minutes. Seated at table for 2 up in back. Very attentive service. Noisy, but who cares ? Short ribs the best ever !! Basil walnut pesto over pasta very good. Good beers, too. Stretch bread fantastic. Hot tomato oil too spicy for me. I could wolf down the bread... More

In you are ever in the Syracuse area make time to stop in to Pastabilities ! The hot tom sauce was so good. Came here because of Diners Drive ins and Dives. The wicky wicky chicken riggies were phenomenal.
