Pacci Italian Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
A few friends and I had dinner at Pacci last week. We were seated at a cozy corner table that was very comfortable. Our server was attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu. The manager greeted us and thanked us for coming to Pacci. He offered some menu selections that we promptly ordered. They were excellent suggestions! The hangar steak was cooked perfectly, the brussel sprouts were the best I have had, the cavitelli was excellent!
We felt very special with the greetings we received from the server, manager, bartender and hostess. We will definitely be back!
I'm surprised at all the great reviews. When we first walked in, the hostess was looking down forever (we figured she was just working) but then after about a minute looked up and said "sorry I was on twitter." She didn't really even apologize. She was very sweet otherwise. The service was very slow, the server messed up my order (and didn't fix it or even apologize), the food took forever and the dishes were very underwhelming. (Coming from two people who aren't super picky!) This is a very mediocre hotel restaurant. Sadly, we won't be returning!
Wonderful downtown Savannah gem.Beautiful ambiance, good beer on tap; food is very good.
I recommend the clams and mussel entree; made with smoked sausage, wonderful smoky flavor, just yummy. The pappardele was delicious as well. Chef will adjust dishes for additional vegetarian entrees. Lovely for couples, we had 2 birthdays to celebrate.
I did not find it noisy, we went on Sunday night, it may be livelier on other days. Glad we chose it!
The service and dining area was great. The only dislike was portion sizing for the cost. Wasn’t expecting that. The food itself was tasty just wish there was more. Specifically I ordered Sweet potatoes tortellini and I believe there were only 6 pieces with some apples.
Server was unsure of wine list. Table was pretty average. Not trying to be critical, but we chose this restaurant based on their normal menu and were only offered their brunch menu upon arrival. Would have booked reservation at another restaurant if we had known that full menu wasn't offered on Sundays.
Once we ordered wine, server brought us wrong wine. We drank it anyway. Oh well.
The hostess was very nice and made us feel welcome and so was the waitress. The restaurant was more casual than I had thought but the noise level was good but our entrees came with our appetizers. I always read the reviews before going to the restaurants but I was greatly disappointed. The appetizers were bland, the carbonara tasted like raw eggs, it did not have the creamy consistency you associate with it. All the plates we ordered were bland and lacking salt.
Friday night at 8 was not super busy. The Burrata app was a clear favorite, we saw three tables order it after we did. the wine section was good, and more importantly, they served the red wine at the proper temperature.
Our mains were solid, my wife's Putanesca was so big we took some back to the hotel.
I left a note telling the staff that it was our wedding anniversary. They gave us a small bouquet of flowers. This was certainly above and beyond what I have ever experienced from any restaurant.
We had a very good first experience.
Very noisy but that is to be expected in a restaurant that is all tile floors, wooden tables and just a few feet from the bar where the bartenders are attempting their best Tom Cruise impersonation from the movie Cocktail. The restaurant was so loud, the waitress had to repeat the specials three times and asked us to repeat our orders twice. There was plenty of table space in the rear of the restaurant but it was clear they were holding that for special occasions and private events -- oh, and so the staff could eat there in peace, which they did. I also ordered a margarita with a shot of 1492, a little pricey but what the heck. The first drink was great, no salt, on the rocks with no pre-made mix, a great drink -- which it should be for $35. However, the second drink, salt on the rim (nope, didn't ask for salt), very cloudy drink -- obviously using a mix and after a sip, very clearly not the 1492 I had previously. I sent it back, and 10 minutes later, the same drink minus the salt -- how do I know? since my table was 5 feet from the actual bar, I could see what was being made by the bartenders and nope, no new drink. I was brought my new (old) drink that tasted of low grade tequila and was charged another $35. There are plenty of great places to eat in Savannah, Pacci is not one of those. A complete failure on the F&B and restaurant managers. This is a Kimpton, figure it out.
Kind of off the main tourist area..popular w European (inside kimpton/Brice hotel)
Online request for a good table was taken care of also mentioned it was a special occasion and they went above and beyond ..complimentary champagne and a lovely note very nice touch!. husband ordered for appetizer fried calimari. not what we're used to up in Brooklyn'..overly fried .I had Carpaccio which was very good .for entrees had sausage and broccolini good, I had a pasta carbonara with pancetta and mushrooms very good not too many Italian restaurants in Savannah near the river mostly seafood or bar food.. waitress very sweet & efficient..
My wife thoroughly enjoyed her clams linguine, we shared a great chopped salad and I thought the Beef short ribs were spot on perfect. Valerie was our server and she was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful with menu and wine selections. Loved her wine recommendations. My first dinner at Pacci, but based on this experience it's one of the best Sicilian / Southern Italian restaurants I've been to outside NYC and clearly the best in Savannah.
We had an early dinner our first night at the hotel. The staff was friendly and very attentive. However the food itself was over priced for the quality. I ordered the sausage pasta and there were literally four slices in the meal. The noodles were pretty dry because the sauce was nonexistent. I looked forward to trying this restaurant's menu due to its claim of healthy authentic Italian cuisine, but left dissappointed.
The food was outstanding. Tried one of the daily specials. Nice wine list, too.
We had to send back unclean silverware twice. The silverware incident didn't spoil the evening, but something like that is sure to be of concern if it happens often. We were compensated with a complimentary salad.
Excellent italian food. All the pasta was cooked correctly and seasoned appropriately. The deserts were also spot on. The only food misstep was the calamari was a bit too salty.
Service was efficient but not overly friendly.
It was not too busy so conversation was easy but I'm sure the room could get very loud with a full crowd. Highly recommended but be prepared to pay the price.
The menu was small without an over abundance of choices, but that suits us well as we aren't fans of 8 page menus offered by chains. All the options sounded inviting, and I believe they are a farm to table establishment. My pizza was very good with an excellent thin wood fired crust. My husband ordered pasta with bolognese and they allowed him to switch his pasta to bucatini. Our chianti was fine, although not outstanding, but we ordered a low end wine. They were very generous portions. Tiramisu shared for desert was good as well. We requested some grated cheese to put on our small plate to pair with the olive oil at the table before our meal, and they complied happily. The decor was an exceptionally pleasing black and white theme, somewhere between modern and traditional. The bar wall was also very attractive and perfectly lit.
The food at this restaurant was decent, and the table service was courteous and prompt. But the restaurant wants to be a "scene" and tries to create an ambiance of high demand. That translates into refusing walk ins, even when the restaurant is less than half full. And the hostess was snooty, for lack of a better description. I was refused a walk in, so went on open table and reserved a table on the spot and was seated, after being made to wait 45 minutes, notwithstanding that the restaurant did not fill up any further in the interim (one or two parties left, and one or two came in). While I waited, I saw two other walk in parties turned away by the rude hostess. The empty tables in the restaurant remained empty throughout my lengthy family meal.
But the food was good. :/
We were celebrating our 45th anniversary (in Savannah) we love Italian food and found Pacci's online (Open Table). Didn't know anything about this restaurant and thought we would try it. We were pleasantly surprised with our experience (choice in food and wine, excellent). We didn't say anything but, they knew it was our anniversary and brought us a glass of champagne each (added touch). One thing to note.....we didn't realize Pacci's is part of a Hotel (Kimpton Brice). I would go there again.
