Ver good meal. Had the Parmesan fondue with pasta chips, the Italian crusted cod and linguine Alfredo with Italian sausage. Everything very good. Restaurant clean, inviting. Loved the furnishing.

They ran out of veal early on in the evening. The meals were fine but not outstanding. Everyone seemed to enjoy the bread bar where you can put different types of bread on a grill. Different butters to put on. They ran out of garlic butter & didn't replace it during our meal.

Food was great. Service started out ok but after the meal was served it went downhill. Didn’t see the server for at least a half hour and by then we were annoyed enough to leave

We went there with some friends for dinner, the service was incredible plus I appreciated the staff wearing masks.

We had Caesar salad, lasagna and an apple crisp for dessert.
The salad and dessert were very good, the lasagna was a bit of a disappointment. For $22 I expected more, it was actually mostly noodles and very little meat so I was glad we had the groupon.

I would definitely try it again but I would try a different entree.

My husband and I decided to go for Fathers Day brunch last minute and used OpenTable to book at Pacini. We’ve been here a couple times for dinner and had great experiences and were excited to try the brunch menu. The bonus was they had plenty of room and we’re offering 500 points for the booking.
We arrived and we’re told they couldn’t find our reservation but it didn’t matter because they had plenty of tables. There were maybe 5-6 other tables seated when we arrived in the whole restaurant/bar.
Our server came over right away with waters and asked us what we wanted to drink. We asked for menus because the QR code wasn’t working. She brought them right over and asked again what we wanted to drink. We told her we would need a minute to decide since she had just handed us the menus.
She came back 2 minutes later and my husband asked for a cappuccino but with almond milk. Our server replied she didn’t know if they had almond milk, I asked for a green smoothie. 26 minutes later my smoothie arrived. It was horrible. My husbands cappuccino never showed up.
During the 26 minutes it took to receive one drink a second server lumbered past us multiple times and didn’t bother to see if we needed anything as we had been sitting there with nothing but water on the table for over 20 minutes. A table beside us paid their bill during our wait and when the same server asked how everything was (at the end of their meal) the man paying the bill said “not great, a lot of the food was inedible”. That sealed the deal for us.
Once my grass water smoothie was dropped off at the table we asked for the bill, paid immediately, and left.

I won’t be going back as the service was so bad we don’t want to risk going again and being disappointed. Why bother.

Based on the positive reviews of existing customers, our family was very eager to try this restaurant for the first time for a Father's Day brunch. Unfortunately, it did not live up to the hype. Our food took over 30 minutes from the time of order, the eggs were overcooked on three of the four brunch entrees and we felt like we were burdening our server by asking for refills on the extremely small sized cups that were offered for our drinks (+/- 8 oz. glasses). There wasn't a large party of guests during the time we were there and there seemed to be less than 10 smaller active tables but the service staff seemed to be overwhelmed. There wasn't any courtesy in even providing us with a "sorry for the wait but we are a little overwhelmed today" or "we really appreciate your patience". Unfortunately with all of those issued combined, I don't think that we will be giving this restaurant another try in the future.

This was by far the worse experience I’ve ever had in a restaurant. After looking at the menu we asked for the flavour of the Arincini, per the menu. The server said she didn’t know but it was good. She appeared confused when we asked her to find out. When ordering we specified our appetizers and said we wanted them to start. One arrived as an appetizer, the other came with our meals even though it came off the appetizer. Our meals were completely wrong even after the server repeated our order back to us. When trying to speak to the manager he just mumbled at us and scurried away.
The arincini was Devine, the rest of the meal was lack lustre. I would NOT recommend this location to anyone. Mistakes happen but when it’s not addressed by management there’s a problem.

Food was bland, garlic bread was just wonderbread and a slice of rye bread (very strange). Servers seemed very busy, but there was only four tables. Dirty glassware sat on tables for the entire hour we were there. Our server was nice. We were seated by the manager who didn't give us menus or tell us about the online menu. The pasta was cold. The wine was good. Would stay away from this place until they can figure it out.

I expected a bit better service on Valentine’s Day than what we got. I was on a date and I wasn’t asked for a refill on my drink, however my partner was. I felt completely ignored and left out. I’ve never experienced anything like it. We also were waiting a long time for our waiter to come back and see how we were doing. The ambience was okay. Food is decent for the price

The minestrone soup I ordered took forever to arrive. And then not even 5 minutes later I got my main course... very bad timing. I had the crusted cod over noodles and it was good, but really nothing to write home for. My server pretty much abandoned me after he delivered the main course.

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.
