Delicious Italian food with normal portions and good prices. Patio seating is best for fresh air and SB atmosphere.

Brought the family here after wondering around downtown on a Saturday. We were told a table would be ready in 20 minutes, we waited over an hour. This seems to be the standard operating proceedure. Once seated, the table service was good and the pasta and salads were satisfying enough. My only complaint was the wait. If it will be... More

Among the seemingly missions of Mexican and seafood restaurants on State Street, it was a relief to find comfort food like this. The décor took some effort, so I appreciated that. The menu items were classic Italian, as was the preparation. Restrooms were in pitiful condition due to neglect, however, and the back dining area was cold. The front was... More

I last reviewed Pascucci on my last visit, which was about five years ago. We don't go downtown as often as in previous years, due to too many tourists and panhandlers, or we most certainly would have returned before this. For this lunch we walked up from Macy's (closing, probably because too many others don't go downtown as often as... More

My family and I had a wonderful dinner on New Year's Eve. There was no wait and bread was placed on the table immediately. We all enjoyed our pastas and pizzas. I would definitely recommend this italian eatery!

Enjoyed a nice lunch here. Charming and cozy environment. We enjoyed a window table affording a great opportunity for people watching. Prompt service, although we did have to go in search of our server for the check. Open kitchen so we could watch the chefs preparing our food. Ordered their ravioli special and the San Marco ravioli, fresh prepared ravioli,... More

This busy Stat Street restaurant has good food at a moderate price. The service was very slow at lunchtime. The food was good but nothing special. The Chicken was very salty but the Pasta Alfredo was very good as was the salad with Ceaser Dressing.

Located next to the Paseo Nuevo on State St., Pascucci Restaurant has a great location, especially when seated al fresco with a view of State St. The ambiance and decor is very reminiscent of a European restaurant, with a relaxed feel. Our server was very courteous and friendly. However, the menu rates as average tasting. The bread for our salad... More

We had supper here. The three cheese pasta was not very cheesy. There wasn't fresh Parmesan to go on top. We also had a risotto with broccoli and chicken.The rice was ok but not well seasoned nor cooked with stock. It was a pity. The service was good.
