We just happen to be on town during dining week. The place was hopping. Over an hour wait but wellllll worth it!

We arrived at Pastabilities at 3:30 pm and they open for dinner at 4:00 pm. I would definitely recommend getting there at this time because 15 minutes later the line was out the door. At 4:00 we were seated and they brought bread and red...More

Caferteria style but great food. The flatbread special was great as well as the sauce for the pasta my wife got.

Pastabilities makes some of their own pastas, has a fantastic burger, and a great bar with a changing selection of craft brews. Love the salad of the month! Great spot for both lunch and dinner! Fantastic service!

The lunch "cafeteria" style is the best deal in town! AWESOME FOOD, great vibe, and an affordable price. The full dinners are high quality Italian fare. The flavors burst in your mouth. The hot 🍅oil paired with their famous stretch bread is to die for!

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
