This place is overrated, hasa poor to insulting wait staff and the manager "Gabe" thinks he's a pyschologist. DON'T GO HERE UNLESS YOU WANT HEARTBURN, AN UNEDUCATED LESSON IN PERCEPTION, AND A WAITTRESS TO DISMISS YOUR TIP AS NOTHING WORTH

Not sure why Pastabilities is one of the busiest restaurants in downtown Syracuse on the weekends. It may very well because it's one of the only ones. Not that there aren't other eateries downtown, but Pasta's certainly is one of the few

Great pasta and great atmosphere. Fettucine alfredo was out of this world. Stretch bread was delicious. Antipasto was killer.
well worth the trip and deserves the five star rating

My son's girlfriend took him here for his birthday. It was Saturday night, and it was early. Although there were better tables, they were put in the dark back corner of the restaurant. Within 10 minutes of ordering, their food was thrown on the table....and they barely put their forks down before the plates were grabbed from them and a check put on the table. They didn't rush to pay the check since the goal was to spend a nice evening having a nice dinner.

If you're a student, have your parents take you here unless you are looking for a fast food experience.

Love the food. But they close at 9 PM. Rediculous. Typical Syracuse.

The first thing you will notice is that Patsabilities has a very inviting storefront atmosphere. The ambiance and setting for a nightly dinner are close to perfect for a bistro style pasta house. The service has always been great and while the waits have been long, they have never been excruciating. However, once have been seated and the meal begins, something else begins to happen. The wine offerings are extensive and of good choice, however, the menu leaves little to be desired with misguided offerings that fall very short of expectations and leave you wanting much, much more. If you are so bold as to buy-in to their offerings you will find food that has too much of all the wrong things. The pastas are too creamy, often very bland and if they have flavor, the flavors do not work well. There are two things that are almost a saving grace for the meal itself; the first are the salads, which have always been fresh and tasty. Second is the spicy tomato sauce and bread served before the meal but I am not returning to a restaurant for good bread and salads. I have visited Pastabilities three or four times simply because the atmosphere is so inviting and in hopes that I was wrong in my judgment with the previous experiences but the outcome has been the same every visit and I am sure I will not be back.

Great atmosphere-horrible food.

I work downtown and this a great place to get good Italian for lunch. I like the cafeteria style line for lunch, moves quick and your food is ready in minutes. Never had a bad meal here and you can atually eat a great lunch for $7-8. I did try to go down for dinner, but like most places downtown... too long of a wait.

Pastabilities is great for lunch! They have many different salads (penne and chicken, tom and cuc, broccoli to name a few ) to choose from and you can choose a 1, 2, or 3 salad plate. They also have mini pizzas, pasta made to order, and daily specials. The price is very good and their bread is amazing!!! Great place for a quick lunch during the workday.

PROS: Bread!!!
