Pacci Italian Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews

First visit, but clearly first of many to come!!! Amazing experience!!! The food was the best I've had in Savannah...and I've been to some of the better restaurants. The service was extraordinary, thanks to Wesley, our server. His recommendations were right on. I had the Seafood Mediterraneo...I couldn't believe how superb it was from the first to last bite!!! Caesar salads can sometimes be boring but not here!!! The value is excellent and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Judy had the filet mignon and Caesar salad and said it was very, very nice. Pacci's is a place you definitely don't want to miss when you're in Savannah!!! Can't say enough about how impressed and satisfied we were!!!

My pizza was a bit soggy. My wife's clam sauce and clams were great, but the pasta was too al dente. It was actually a bit crunchy, which is an alarming mistake for an Italian restaurant. We'll give it another shot, though, maybe we caught them on a bad night.

The food was excellent, but the most fantastic part of our evening was, Sydney. He took care of us like we were royalty. If you go there ask for him. I am sure he treats everyone that way. Made the night extra special. Look for him when you go.

First time back since the new chef took over. Much of the menu is the same, perhaps a little less ambitious. The skillet entrees are gone, which were fabulous. My Seafood Mediterranean featured a nice piece of Mahi, but under seasoned linguini. Short ribs and Clams Fettuccini were hits. Caesar salad was nothing special with croutons instead of anchovies--and under-dressed. But the setting is naturally lit and vibrant, the server friendly and knowledgable. A very reasonably priced, floral and crisp Italian white remains on the menu. We'll return.

While the wine and food is okay, the service was EXTREMELY slow. The décor is nice - modern and clean, but the acoustics are awful with a lot of ambient noise so you can barely hear across the table without shouting. I've eaten here twice and had the same experience twice.
Pacci is a nice place with Italian influ ...
Pacci is a nice place with Italian influence -- being Italian myself I'm always overly critical about "Italian" food outside Italy :-) the beef carpaccio was excellent (I'm an avid raw meat eater, so hard to find!). The linguine with clams were savory and well cooked. Small wine list with high markups (pretty common in the south, we've noticed). The noise level was particularly loud.
The restaurant is adorable - great decor, fabulous bar. The service is great as well, everyone is so helpful. But the food literally had no taste. A friend and I ordered gnocchi and neither of us ate it; it tasted like nothing. The cocktails were fantastic, as was the wine list. But something goes amiss in the kitchen. I sooo wanted the food to be as outstanding as the location and the decor, but it just wasn't meant to be. Dessert was great - definitely order the Amaretto cheesecake! They took our entrees off the bill entirely, which was greatly appreciate and the right thing to do.

They weren't very busy yet it took 20 minutes to get our first drink 30 minutes to get bread on the table. They messed up the order and had to re-order it again. Overall the food had no taste, it's like they did not know how to use seasonings. Would definitely not recommend this place.
It was our combined anniversaries and we were not disappointed. The Pinot noir was exceptional; as was our antipasto-never had blueberries with cured meats before, but was delish! Each of our entrees was yummy. Sadly, we were to full to have dessert. Maybe next time.

Lovely and eclectic restaurant, serving some unique and tasty dishes. Loved their Caesar Salad and Rigitoni with meat sauce. The Spinach entre was spectacular as well. You are going to love this gem located in the Kimpton Hotel property serving delightful fare. Job well done.

The food is beyond amazing, and the decor of the restaurant makes you wish you could sit there all day. The service was also excellent, and I loved that the servers used teamwork to make sure every patron was enjoying their meal. I would definitely recommend Pacci to anyone who looking for great Italian food.

Light, airy, casual and comfortable atmosphere. The food we had was superb! Fig and Speck flatbread was a perfect balance of sweet salty and smoky. Delicious! The catch of the day, simply seared and served atop homemade capellini and a white wine caper sauce was heavenly. Fortunately we had some bread left to sop up the sauce left on the bottom of the plate! We finished we vanilla gelato drizzled with olive oil (who knew!) and sprinkled with salt! A new way to enjoy ice cream!
Second visit for us. Restaurant was very busy, but our server did a great job keeping up. Loved the fig old fashioned with the fried garbanzo bar snack! The panzanella salad is a great winter take on the classic summer salad. I had the short ribs and they were delicious--not greasy or fatty. Husband had the seared tuna and it was cooked perfectly.
Great effort by the team for our dinner ...
Great effort by the team for our dinner experience. The management of the morning breakfast shift was all over the place - Sidney was a star in coming to our rescue. Evening service by Valerie was over the top and dinner and dessert did not disappoint.
An OFF (as in "awful") night
We have been to Pacci several times and always enjoyed it, including on Easter Sunday night when they were packed!
This time was a disaster...embarrassing because we were with friends, who had never dined here before. First of all, the hostess ignored us, after we clearly told her...and she acknowledged our reservation. The restaurant was half empty...and we were seated 20 minutes after our reservation time (8:15).
It took another long 10 minutes to even get a drink order placed...and then, after ordering promptly, our appetizers came out after 30 minutes, only after we flagged our waitress to see what was happening. At this point, there were only 3 other tables of people in the restaurant. What a disappointment! The roasted cauliflower soups was cold...and the salads were warm. Clearly all had been sitting in the kitchen for a while.
When the main course finally arrived it was a full hour after we had placed our order...if they were swamped with people, maybe we could understand it...but they weren't. By this time, the men in our party were so irritated, that it was hard to enjoy the food. My dish was again barely warm. I will have to think twice about returning here...and that is too bad because we go to many events at the Morris Center which is just a block away.
Outstanding food and atmosphere
Our first time at Pacci for a late lunch prior to a Savannah Music Festival Show. The food was outstanding -- some of the best homemade pasta we have experienced in a long time (since NYC and Philly). Service was equally outstanding and the restaurant décor and atmosphere were excellent, including a great bar. Although we enjoyed the old school atmosphere of the previous Mulberry lounge area location, the contemporary look and atmospheric openness of the new Pacci décor are terrific. We will definitely be back and will bring friends.
