Restaurant is off the beaten track and in a housing estate rather than the high street. This is a family run business serving great food. Prices are very reasonable and staff very friendly. Would certainly go back if visit Chester again!

This little local restaurant is tucked away but well worth the effort in finding. Family run for over 30 years they definitely know how to serve Italian food. The food is delicious! Pasta at its best.

Lovely atmosphere with excellent food, good value and charming team. Really recommended and I will certainly be back. A little way out of the centre in an unlikely spot but well worth a few minutes walk.

My family of 7 went to this restaurant for a Mothers Day lunch. We had a superb meal (English Roasts), Very friendly staff (couldn't do more for us). Great atmosphere will go again and certainly recommend to friends. "A little jewel hidden away" but very close to railway station for day visitors. Well done PACINOS!!

This restaurant is on the outskirts of City centre in a residential area.. However when you enter, the atmosphere is quite surprising. By this I mean because of location. I will be honest I did no expect what met us,, The restaurant is welcoming , warm and friendly.. now onto the main reason for the visit, good food! Yes it... More

We were going to a gig at "the live rooms" and wanted to eat before hand. Pacino' was an ideal choice been so near to the venue. Opens at 6.30 so plenty of time for a meal before the gig. We chose meals from their starter and main offer and both our meals were fantastic and reasonably priced. Meal for... More

I have been to Pacino's a number of times now. You will receive a warm and friendly welcome from this family run business. There is a varied menu with an excellent choice of "specials" on their blackboard too. Like others have said, their steaks are fantastic and just melt in your mouth. The wine list is quite extensive too with... More

Work in hospitality in one of the best hotels/restaurants in Chester. Pacinos is easily the best place in Chester to dine at. Gregg the owner could not of done more for us and my family without being over the top. A place I will definitely be visiting again... and Again! BEST STEAK IN CHESTER!

I hadn't been to Pacino's since the late 80's. I have now rediscovered it and have been three times in the last couple of months! In an unassuming part of Chester, tucked away, you would only know of it if you are told. Lovely food, very friendly staff. We will now be regulars once again.

We have eaten at the Manchester branch on many occasions over several years, so had high expectations for a mid week lunch. Layout is quite open, bar to the right, dinning to the left, lighting was a little too low for a lunch time meal, but prompt attentive service. Surprised there was no Prosecco from the Valdo region on 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.
