Maybe its a nostalgic thing or the cool atmosphere or the very good food or a combo of it all, I still love this place. From a drink at the bar to a great dinner with friends and family this place works.

Thank you for your continued, long-standing support! Pastabilities would not have survived since 1982 without the support of the Syracuse population and "Pasta's friends" such as yourself! We can't wait to see you again.
