Went on the recommendation of another. A different type of place. Pasta, but not what your thinking. You have to try the hot oil. It is the best. And they sell it. Get some! And the staff is great. And the bread from comes from across the street at "Pasta's Daily Bread". Great breads there (and they sell the Pastabilities... More

I did not expect the gluten free pasta to be so delicious! It was also a very big portion and I could not finish it. Courteous staff, even though we had a bit of a wait but we went without reservation. Not expensive either.

I have never had a bad meal here. The pasta is great, the non-pasta meals are great. They also usually have a fun cocktail menu. The only drawback is that if you go during the main dining hours, any day of the week, there will be a wait. I usually don't mind this though because it gives me time to... More

I'm not a huge pasta fan, however I really enjoyed pastabilities. When we went I was kind of burned out on chicken so instead tried the meatball riggies. They were excellent. Will try chicken riggies next time. Service was superb. Our waiter and other staff were extremely attentive despite the fact they were very busy. Food was excellent, service was... More

We went as a 8 person family and sat in a cozy room just for ourselves. The food was delayed but the service stayed professional and kind; was attentive to empty drinks, bread baskets, and their famous hot dipping sauce while we waited. Got a discount on our meal for the inconvenience, and left in good spirits. Always a great... More

I have been going to Pastabilities since the 80s. One of my favorites in Syracuse. Great for drinks at the bar, dinner alone up to large groups. Food is fabulous! I would highly recomend eating here.

Take what I say here with a grain of salt as I ate there for lunch and I am sure dinner service is different. I was out Christmas shopping a few days ago and past Pastabilities, as a SU student and not from the area I had heard from around it was a really good place to grab a bite.... More

When we got there we were told it was a 40 minute wait. The food was second to none, and the service was equally fantastic. The hostess gave us the option to leave and come back in 25 minutes so we walked to Empire Brewing for a drink. We were visiting the area and we agree with the #1 ranking... More
