Very good restaurant on the ground floor of the Empire building, near the Fitzroy river. But over priced, for no white tablecloth service.

We booked a meal here as we were staying in the adjoining Empire apartments and it looked promising from the outside. Things went downhill after that. I thought the food expensive for what it was and that's before it arrived. I opted for the only fish dish on the menu and asked the waitress if it came with anything else... More

I had read all the bad reviews first so still went along to this fine looking restaurant . It has great kerbside appeal , a huge space and at lunch time very few tables dining ...just five . That should have been a warning sign but I was determined to try it out. The lunch time menu had some very... More

I come to Rocky for business twice per year. I am sure to eat at Pacino's every night. Atmosphere is nice, outdoor seating is available and friendly service. The wait staff is very young but very courteous and observant. I would recommend The lobster ravioli along with the garlic bread pizza for sauce dipping. Great combination. I will continue to...

Upmarket stylish restaurant for family or special occasion. Italian food with a fresh and varied choice, great wine choices available and attention to detail if you ask for selected seating

No doubt the food at Pacino’s is top notch, and so it should be for the price. But the owners can be a little pushy and oversell sometimes. My meals have always been terrific and the wine is good too. I will keep retuning despite the 'advice'.

No question the food here is terrific. Sitting near the Fitzroy river creates a lovely ambience. But on a Saturday night, there was a lot of encouragement to place the order and we hadn't finished eating when they offered to take our plates away. Paying high price, we would have enjoyed more time to relax at this otherwise excellent restaurant

Locals recommended this restaurant and we really enjoyed the meal. Six meals all different but all of high quality and sufficient volume. Lovely setting along the river and ever though it was hot at night a nice breeze made the most of the open air dining.
