Visited this place during my recent stay at Syracuse. Very friendly staff with prompt service. Casual atmosphere which makes it more fun along with amazing food. Loved their signature spicy hot tomato oil. My 2 year old relished her dishes too!!! All of these went with some good red wine. Very happy with our visit!!

They don't take reservations here so get ready to wait should you want to eat during "normal" dinner times. The pastas are the headliners, my son who ordered the penne with Vodka sauce and shrimp said the vodka sauce and pasta might have been the best he's ever had(and he's an expert on this dish). The down side, only 4... More

So here's the deal, the waits are long. Once you get over that, our server was the best. Super friendly and made sure we were well taken care of. I didn't get to enjoy my meal due and an allergic reaction, but she wrapped up all of the other food and got us out of the restaurant quickly so I... More

After waiting about 1hour, we had a decent dinner. Good homemade pasta, good homemade spicy tomato oil, decent starters. Good black code but nothing excepțional. Please change more frequently the oil used for French fries ( friteuze smell persists) Modest desserts. Noisy atmosphere, questionable decoration, good young staff and service.

Rarely is a visit as good as the first, but my second visit to Pastabilities was wonderful. This time, I went with three others and we were seated at a table in the bar section. The food was excellent, but the menu was limited (summer menu) so the choices were not as many as during my first visit. Our waitress... More

Come to Pastabilites very hungry! You won't be disappointed. Starting the service was very friendly and efficient. Drink orders were taken right away along with daily specials. After drinks were served delicious bread with a spicy dip was quickly consumed. We ordered Cheesy Garlic Bread. My Grandson quickly downed 4 pieces! Now the entrées. Chicken Parmigiana, Manicotti, Spaghetti with Meatballs... More
