Read the great reviews and so we had to try it. Just an ordinary, good restaurant. Not outstanding, just good. The spicy tomato dipping sauce was too spicy for our taste. Doesn't anybody have butter anymore?

They say its the place to go in Syracuse but i say its overrated. We didn't enjoy our food and I missed out on the great pasta taste. It was highly recommended by everyone so we didnt mind the hour wait for a table.. Our server was inattentive and frankly the busser did most of the job for her! Overall,... More

The soup was really homemade & delicious, salads also excellent. Pasta was great, but it was too much pasta without enough sauce. Lunchtime buffet made it fast & easy.

Good service. Really good food! We were there on a really busy night and the food still arrived quickly. I highly recommend the fried calamari, the best I have ever had super tender and crisp on the outside.

Worth your time - you won't be disappointed. Very good meal at a reasonable price. Armory Square is worth the trip as well.

Love this restaurant. The wait is worth the quality of the food. Parking can sometimes be a problem. Great stretch bread and spicy tomato dipping sauce. Can become addictive!!

We enjoyed Pastabities on our visit for dinner. We were told the wait would be 45 minutes and actually waited 15-20 minutes. The Caesar salad was wonderful with sundries tomatoes and a rich dressing. Both of us ordered Carbonara and found it to be excellent. The service and staff were attentive and friendly.

Great place with awesome staff, was told a 45 minute wait but ended up only being about 20 minutes (would have been worth the 45 minutes). Outdoor seating was a nice treat!! Had the wicky wicky Chicken Riggies, it was awesome and they tell you it's spicy and it didn't disappoint as I like spicy!! For dessert had the Chocolate... More
