Service was wonderful. Very accommodating too - i am a little bit disabled, so the server offered to get me a selection from the bread bar (I love bread!). I felt very safe, the tables were well separated. It’s the first time I’ve been out for a meal since March! And the food was delicious.

I had the penne prosciutto arugula which was taste and creamy with the goat cheese. The arugula was raw but when mixed into the dish it became slightly wilted and delicious with the other textures. Grilling your own bread with 3 different spreads to choose from was dun and didn’t take but a few minutes. I would suggest that the bread come out 5 minutes before the entrees. My husband had the carbonara which came out lukewarm with a raw yolk on top. Being a chef himself he did not think the egg would cook enough in lukewarm pasta so removed the yolk. I would suggest the yolk be mixed into a hotter noodle and then served.

We had the lasagna and it was very cheesy, it didn't look very big but we were really full when we left, the bread was good, did not see meat in the bologna sauce, but it was okay, quite salty though. It was a nice restaurant and the staff was attentive and friendly.

Kept social distancing well and table arrangement was done nicely. Our server was easy going and very considerate when my 2.5yrs old son ordered a juice, she put it in a paper cup with lid and straw instead of glassware. Foods suggestions were spot on. Service was flawless throughout the night. Our first dining in since pandemic and we had great time.

Service was a little slow and they failed to mention a few items were not available. The waiter was friendly and the restaurant is beautiful. Food was just okay. The pizza was not hot and the sausage sandwich would be better served on a bun instead of sliced and on flatbread. They served us some bread and butter which was stale and not appetizing. They do offer you a flattop grill to toast the bread, but other customers were there and I didn’t want to get up and stand there with my bread. Seemed a weird concept to me.

Great value with generous portions, including the kids menu items. Kids eat free with each adult entrée on weekends, which is an outstanding deal and was more than enough for my 7 year old kids to share a single kids meal. The service was exceptional. Our experience was outstanding and I would highly recommend it for any get together whether a dinner date, family outing or group activity.

It was extremely quiet when we walked in. Given the times we're in that wasn't surprising. However, our server was amazing and tended to our every need and request.
We got to grill our own toast which was pretty fun.
Our appetizer was really great also. We had the risotto balls (sooo delicious!). Our mains were just as good but we didn't save room for dessert! All in all the experience was great.
Definitely a place to check out if you like Italian.

We are a family of four from Calgary and one evening on a whim we decided to try Pacini Calgary South. Although the service was okay and the decor was nice, everything else was lacking and my honest review to anyone reading this review is: “Don’t waste your time and money at this restaurant!” Sadly, there is nothing authentic about this Italian eatery as the pasta tasted like a lean cuisine meal and the pizza may very well have been the worst that I’ve tasted. I really don’t enjoy leaving a bad review and I hope with time this restaurant will pull it together and hire an executive chef that knows how to pleasure the palette of its patrons.

We really enjoyed our Saturday brunch at Pacini. It was our first time there and we will abolutely be back! Our server Brenna was attentive and friendly. The food (I had the ham and cheese fritata and my sister had the spaghetti with meatballs) was very tasty and the portions were large. We both asked for take away containers. I have never seen a bread bar before. There were several different types of bread to select and a nice assortment of spreads. It was fun to toast our bread on the grill for an incradibly hot and fresh treat. We really liked the ambiance of the area. It felt quiet and relaxing.

The bar was right by our table, so we could see & hear the bartender. When our server realized that my drink was accidentally made with ice, he gave it back to her. Instead of draining it, she glared at him and poured the drink out, giving major attitude. Evan, our server, was great. He was super friendly, outgoing & knowledgeable. The food was very tasty.

Service was poor. The waitress brought my drink first, then a second trip for my wife’s drink, then finally my daughters. What happened to ladies first?
The entrees arrived 1 minute after the appetizers. No time to enjoy the appys.
The food was way too salty! I couldn’t eat mine. When I mentioned it, the waitress shrugged. Took a long time to get the bill.
We won’t be going back.
