All served fresh and hot, my wifes fish was absolutely delicious, my veal was cooked to perfection. Salad was very good, along with the soup. Plenty to eat. Definitely will return.

As often as we have been here, I am always amazed at the full glasses of wine - filled to the brim with never a drop spilled regardless of the server. Debra, the owner, waits tables and is always so friendly and accommodating. Six friends enjoyed dinner on a Friday night and, as always, is was wonderful. Most of us... More

Excellent food. Really friendly service. Went there after one of my Roy Hobbs baseball games. Couldn't eat it all and took it home. A little pricey for Italian. No real complaints.

Fresh pasta and dishes are all cooked to order. The restaurant is small and quaint. The house wine is a full pour to rim of the glass and you'll be amazed to watch the waitress serve your wine without spilling a drop. I highly recommend the Chicken El Presidente, a chicken breast sautéed with eggplant and mushrooms in a garlic... More

Wonder what in the world the chef/main cook is thinking when the roadside sign states "best Italian food in swfl".... ordered simple Togo angel hair w/bolonaise sauce at 14.99 and looked good through the clear container top when returned home.the bolonaise sauce was seemingly gelatinous and its taste was very off from a typical "meat" and "tomato sauce" combined as...

Past abilities is always a Must Visit when I'm in the area. Doesn't look like mush from the outside, but the food is always delicious and the staff is lovely. Started with the mozzarella sticks, which were perfectly crunchy and piping hot. Entrees were the Cajun Medley chicken, the Chicken Pizzaiola ( always a a favorite), and the pasta carbonara....

The waitstaff at this restaurant were very friendly and professional. I had very high hopes for the food. Unfortunately, the food that I had was just okay. I have had much better Italian food. Sadly, my advice to visitors to the area is to pass the restaurant by.

My husband and I stopped here recently for dinner. It was a quiet weeknight and the owner was very friendly and accommodating. The house white was good and the pour generous. The bread that accompanied our meal was good. The garden salad was very generous and fresh tasting. I ordered the special which was a breaded chicken dish with angel... More

We wrapped up a week's vacation with dinner at Pastabilities. We tried a few places during the week including a seafood place in town, a big pub down Estero Blvd ... all were OK but venturing up San Carlos Blvd proved to be BEST! My broiled red snapper with veggies was mouthwatering delicious -- super fresh, perfectly seasoned and served.... More
