This restaurant has a lovely homely atmosphere. It is friendly and welcoming, you are left feeling one of the family when dinning here. The food is fabulous with huge portions being served up, no room for desert. The type of food served is Italian, pizza, pasta or as I had chicken in mushroom sauce which was adapted to fit my...

It was a nice spring evening on Thursday and we decided to walk along Ocean Road to Pacino's. We had booked a table for two on the spur of the moment and what an excellent choice. The restaurant is cosy and the staff very friendly and welcoming. We ordered a bottle of the house white wine while we decided what... More

Me and my partner went to Pacino's one night for tea and we weren't disappointed, unlike some other Italians on ocean road this one had a warm friendly atmosphere from the moment you walk through the door. The food is of a fantastic standard and isn't badly priced. We will definitely be back.

We came here on a whim on a Sunday night after reading some good reviews. We weren't disappointed. It's a small place but full of character. We were seated straight away by a pleasant and not overly attentive waiter. There was a good amount of time between courses. The starters (garlic prawns and meatballs) were excellent and we were asked... More

We ate in this busy Italian restaurant with friends, having made a booking for a Friday night. Service was good and attentive. We enjoyed drinks from the bar while we chose from the menu and had a bottle of wine with our food. We ordered a variety of different meals and everyone was pleased with their choices. We'd visited on... More

Me and my partner tried here recently as we'd never been before. We weren't disappointed, good selection on the menu, a warm greeting from the lovely staff, the prices were very affordable and the food was fantastic, nice authentic Italians. I'd definitely recommend giving this place a try, a great discovery. I'll be back again for sure
