This was our first visit to Pastabilities but it won't be our last. The food, staff and atmosphere were all excellent. We got there early on a Friday night (around 5) as we heard it is a very busy restaurant and we had tickets to...More

Been here a few times for dinner. You can’t go wrong. Everything is delicious that I have ever tried. The spicy tomato oil is awesome. My wife and I get a few things and split when we go. Try the duck bacon pizza. Amazing

First off, best calamari I’ve ever had! Not like the usual rubbery, hard to chew stuff - the calamari here was tender, delicious, exactly as it should be! Homemade bread and their special oil were delicious, and the carbonara was wonderful! Service was great, my...More

Enjoyed many dishes at Pastabilities. The service is warm and helpful. The spice levels are hot. Enjoyed salads, veggies and pasta. The smoked duck pizza would have been better without the gamey goat cheese. The place is fun and loud. The wait can be long...More

Went here over Christmas weekend. I've been here once before and the food, service and atmosphere is excellent. The Chicken Riggies are great and a little spicy, which I love. The bread and sauce they bring out with your meal is fantastic.

The bathrooms are on the first floor so unless you are sitting in the upper level there will be no stairs and they are large so it shouldn't be an issue for someone with a walker. I do also remember a rail on the wall next... More
