Pacci Italian Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Food was amazing. The service was a little slower than what would be expected but the waitress was very good and accommodating. Drinks were a little on the pricey side but the food was appropriately priced. Love that everything is made in house and the esthetic of the restaurant it awesome. Definite must go.
had a party of five and was seated rather quickly- we did have a reservation but table was not quite ready. many asked if we had been helped prior to seating. food was delicious and presentation was rather nice. wasn't as Italian as i would have imagined but nice. some accommodations to the menu were made for us. wine was a bit pricey.
Took my wife for her birthday..we from Atlanta and have real good Italian food..but I must say this is,one of the best I have had around..I thought the decor did not do the Food justice..pretty casual..it is now my favorite restaurant to visit in Savanah..
Food first - excellent, creative and delicious!! The chef combined some unusual ingredients for a wonderful presentation, flavor and taste. Very creative without being pretentious. Portions were perfectly sized.
Now to the service - outstanding! I had made the reservation several weeks prior to our dinner on New Year's Eve. When the manager called me about a week prior to dinner to let me know that dinner was pre-fix for the evening I was pleased that he cared enough to let me know. He then spent considerable time reading the menu tor the evening to me and answering any questions that I had.
Then due to family illness our dinner time and number of guests changed twice. Each time I called to make a change I was answered with complete cooperation. Dinner service was outstanding! Our waiter, Brenden, was very knowledgeable about each dish, and could explain the ingredients as well as the type of cooking it would require. He was at the ready but not at all intrusive.
It was a most pleasant evening and I would highly recommend Pacci Italian Kitchen!
It was so noisy we couldn't hear each other. When we arrived there was a singer blasting out her songs and it was impossible to even hear the waitress to order.
The service was slow. Bread came after the appetizers. Brought the wrong wine because she couldn't hear what we ordered.
The meat entrees the plates had a couple of spoonfuls of stuff that wasn't very filling.
The beef carpaccio, which I have had before, was skimpy this time.
The menu doesn't reflect the food at all. Extremely scimpy on ingredients and our server brought us the wrong food. It was the host who knew he menu well enough to recognize that what we ordered was incorrect. I'd give this place 1 star if it wasn't for her knowing the menu. The server hovered over her and threw her under the bus after she re-took our order and said she "didn't know much, she's very new." He was extremely condescending about it. We ordered a bologese that had nothing in it, a clam linguine that had no noodles and the rooster crest pasta dish that has about 2 pieces of sausage in it and wasn't too far from a dish i could get in a frozen food section. Just absolutely terrible.
I'd only recommend this place to people who have no interest in food. It will dazzle someone not interested in ingredients based on their flashy and mediocre decor.
We were sat off in a corner and kind of ignored. The hostess was great--- everything else was meh. They were vacuuming a room next to our table and it felt like we were intruding or an afterthought. Our order came out missing items and we had to ask several times to get them. When I made the reservation for noon, I didn't expect brunch. That was OK… But the food just wasn't up to par. A couple of people were sitting down eating in the room that was vacuumed… I think they were employees. Maybe if we had been set in the main portion of the restaurant we wouldn't have felt so… unimportant. This was Christmas morning. It was fairly disappointing. I own a business in savannah. I too was open Christmas morning. We went out of our way to treat people special. I felt the total opposite.
As noisy and energetic that Pacci is for dinner, it is almost eerily serene for brunch or lunch. During the week, the dining room is less than half full for lunch. This past Sunday for brunch it was virtually empty. The food was creative and well-prepared (as usual), and reasonably priced, so it is recommended.
Last night was my first visit to Pacci for dinner. The food was good, not great. I had the rack of lamb that was cooked perfectly but the white bean mash was undercooked not really mashed at all. My wife's fish dish was ok but nothing spectacular. The desserts really stole the show. I had a chocolate torte and my wife had the amaretto cheesecake. The were both amazing so that we had keep asking for a bite from each other's plate.
The restaurant was very loud and it was often difficult to talk to each other from across the table. We were nearly yelling at times which created an uncomfortable conversation with the table next us being so close.
The service was just as dinner, ok, not stellar. We seemed to be wanting quite often. Our drinks and reorders of drinks took some time to be delivered to the table and we were left waiting to get our check at the end of the meal. The server seemed to very competent, but seemed to be working many tables at the same time.
The prices on the menu were not outrageous but I had expected more out of a restaurant in this price range.
Sadly, Pacci's food is hit or miss every time. There always seems to be one thing that goes wrong with the food. This time our fritto misto arrived with a dipping sauce that turned out to be something intended for a desert-it was an incredibly sweet custard like filling. When we pointed it out, they quickly took it away but then we waited almost 10 minutes to have it replaced by a completely tasteless aioli. Everything else tasted great and the bar and drinks are fantastic!
Great food and service but be prepared to use sign language to converse if there is any traffic at the bar. The one room concept puts bar patrons elbows-length from diners, and the hard surface decor takes the noise level to stratospheric levels when the room is crowded. Conversation at the overly large tables is literally impossible at times and will spoil an otherwise great experience.
Stayed at the Brice Hotel for a week and ate a few times at Pacci. Two breakfasts and one dinner. Service was uneven and not very professional. Egg white omelet was a grease bomb with a few veggies folded in. Dinner was overpriced for what it was. The pasta dish came without the advertised morels,carrots and parmesan. Drinks are very expensive . There needs to be some proper management in the kitchen. Wait staff need to be a bit more forward thinking about their service.
Very loud. Conversation was near shouting. The wine list was reasonable, but the restaurant was out of the two wines we requested. My wife had the filet and it was good. The short ribs were mediocre at best, somewhat dried out and the risotto was watery. For the price there are much better choices in Savannah to spend your money.
We ate brunch at Pacci on 9/18. We were surprised by the relatively small crowd, so if you're after a last minute brunch reservation definitely give it a try. Overall the food was very good: I had the Pancetta Hash and she had the Low Country Benedict. The portions were good but not excessive. My only criticism re the food is the seafood sausage (the base of the Low Country Bene) was a bit bland. Otherwise everything was very nice, the atmosphere is wonderful and the service was friendly and attentive. I don't consider Pacci a great value, but it isn't outrageous. Our bill was around $45 which included two entrees, coffee and we shared a pancake. Overall I recommend Pacci for a quiet brunch in a beautiful setting.
Best fish dish I've ever had- a flounder over polenta with a tomato-based sauce with asparagus- very unctuous; absolutely delicious pasta dish with chicken liver and creamy sage sauce- again umami! Service was excellent from Valerie. Uriah, the bartender, made awesome mescal drinks with blueberry balsamic. Cannot say enough good things about this meal....look forward to another experience.
A group of co-workers and myself were there so send off my boss who was stepping down from his position in our company. We had a great time. The food and the service was just simply outstanding. I have been there for a party but this was my first time eating a full meal. Should not have waited so long. I highly recommend Pacci for any of your dinning experiences you will not be disappointed.
