We visited Friday evening whilst enjoying a weekend away in Chester. A warm and friendly greeting on arrival. The restaurant was very quiet which was probably due to the snow. We had a delicious meal, very good value for money and friendly service If you...More

It’s 25 years since I first visited Pacino’s. There have been some changes in that time. It’s tripled in size for one. But the three things that have remained consistent are the family that run it, the warm welcome and the good food. I haven’t...More

I am already a Pacino's convert but I feel its worth mentioning how great the Pizzas are, served promptly with typical Italian pizazz. I took my family for lunch during a busy period, graduation day I think, but still was treated to a lovely, welcoming...More

Although not located in one of the nicer areas of Chester, the interior of Pacino's is clean and modern. Had the pate to start which was excellent. Extra toast was provided, which was needed due to the amount of pate. The fillet steak main and...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.
