This was highly rated and recommended. The food was good, not great. The bread with hot oil was good, but the bread would have been better warm.

Had a fun time here with my partner, but the dishes and food can be a little sloppy and weirdly seasoned. But the location is great, the staff is friendly, and I cant really get mad at a bowl of pasta

The wife and I stopped in for lunch after several friends had recommended this place, it lived up to the hype. Lunch is cafeteria style, we had the meatball sub on their stretch bread and a side of fruit salad. We took the fruit salad...More

We arrived Syracuse past 9p and were worried about where to find a palace to eat. We looked up the internet and found Pastabilities. When we asked the concierge, they also recommended the same place. We had to find street parking about a block away....More

I really wanted to love Pastabilities! I've been hearing about it since we moved here 3 years ago, and we finally tried it at the end of January for my birthday. It was a Monday night, so we got right in and we're seated immediately....More

Really fantastic pastas, amazing bread and hot tomato oil. A Syracuse stable, highly suggested. Riggies are the best!

Sea scallops are cooked to perfection , bacon is not necessary, cheese ravioli good also , the hot home tomato sauce is also very good

Bread with spicy tomato oil (not too spicy) and chicken riggies (definitely spicy) made for a fine dinner at this near-downtown local restaurant. Sabrina was an excellent server - friendly, attentive and professional. A nice change from the Dinosaur.

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

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

Pastabilities does not have its own private parking lot, and on-street parking is the most convenient if you can find an available spot. Officially, the City of Syracuse requires payment for on-street parking... More
