Work in hospitality in one of the best hotels/restaurants in Chester. Pacinos is easily the best place in Chester to dine at. Gregg the owner could not of done more for us and my family without being over the top. A place I will definitely be visiting again... and Again! BEST STEAK IN CHESTER!

I hadn't been to Pacino's since the late 80's. I have now rediscovered it and have been three times in the last couple of months! In an unassuming part of Chester, tucked away, you would only know of it if you are told. Lovely food, very friendly staff. We will now be regulars once again.

We have eaten at the Manchester branch on many occasions over several years, so had high expectations for a mid week lunch. Layout is quite open, bar to the right, dinning to the left, lighting was a little too low for a lunch time meal, but prompt attentive service. Surprised there was no Prosecco from the Valdo region on the... More

Cooking is very basic, just one level above amateur, king prawns served warm with mayonnaise, fresh out of the microwave, steak flabby and not ,an inexpensive item either. Far better places to eat out in Chester.

From the outside, the restaurant was not particularly enticing but once inside, it had a great atmosphere. All 4 people in our party had different starters and mains; all dishes were great. We were too full to sample dessert! The staff were also fabulous. Great to meet you Debbie and Vicky - keep up the good work!

After hearing some great reviews on this place I was excited to try it and with the OnionRing discount it thought it would be nice to splash out a bit. For starters I had the Pigeon breast on brioche crouton, the breasts were very chewy and the currant jelly that accompanied had been poured all over so the brioche crouton... More

Not a great location, in the middle of lots of high rise flats and a playground. Good food though. Tried the lamb shank and the fillet steak plus the garlic bread which was tasty. Nice inside, pretty quiet for a Friday night.

A fantastic evening, great atmosphere . Food was amazing all freshly cooked to order. On the outskirts of the city but well worth the visit.

Pacino's was established in 1986 and has built up a reputation with the local people and visitors alike for the finest cuisine and affordable wine list that can be found anywhere in the city of Chester. Since its launch the restaurant has tippled in size, now with over 80 covers. Pacino's has however maintained its high levels of quality and service. Pacino's offers an intimate atmosphere and a friendly personal service that can only be found in a family run business. Perhaps that's why we are often referred to as "Chester's Hidden Gem". Gluten free available on request.
