Very friendly, welcoming family restaurant with great menu and quality to back it up. We booked up online based on internet recommendations and they were right. Prices are fair.

We visited Chester for a couple of nights this December. I selected Pacino's having read other TripAdvisor ratings. Well, you are right - it's a little off the beaten track and don't be put off by the outside surroundings. Once inside, the welcome was warm...More

What a fabulous find, thanks to Trip Advisor! Lovely welcoming staff, super place (a bit like the Tardis....much bigger inside than it seems to be!), great menus and the food was gorgeous. We chose off the Christmas set menu and enjoyed a glass of wine...More

Pacinos is a ten minute walk from Chester city centre. Food was fresh, hot and delicious. Excellent service and very good value! Everything was very clean and good atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

Situated just outside Chester city centre, Pacino's has a modern look but creates and serves terrific classic Italian food. We were running late and rang ahead to apologise - no problem at all despite it being a busy Friday. A fine choice - although the...More

Pacino's was established in 1986 and has built up a reputation with the local people and visitors alike for the finest cuisine and affordable wine list that can be found anywhere in the city of Chester. Since its launch the restaurant has tippled in size, now with over 80 covers. Pacino's has however maintained its high levels of quality and service. Pacino's offers an intimate atmosphere and a friendly personal service that can only be found in a family run business. Perhaps that's why we are often referred to as "Chester's Hidden Gem". Gluten free available on request.
