Pacinos offers the choice of indoor or outdoor dining right beside the Fitzroy river. The ambiance is pleasant and not too noisy. I believe the Menu has enough variety to please most people and is well prepared. The Chianti is delicious. Have been there several times and have not been disappointed.

Lovely service and starters, however there is a clear difference between al dente pasta and uncooked pasta. Obviously the establishment disagrees: After returning my $40+ per very small plate of lobster ravioli due to the pasta being hard and crunchy in places the second serve produced was cooked the same. The filling was fabulous, so the pasta ruined what should... More

Wow great food and nice atmosphere right on the river. We understand that they pride themselves on great food however when asked if they could provide a jug of coke we were told if we wanted that to go to McDonald's or a pub . They could have just said sorry the only option here is ... and provided us... More

Seated outside on my own decided to ask for Veal Scallopini, not mentioned on the menu, it was a hidden gem, the chef knew exactly how to produce the best I have ever eaten. Service was attentive wines were the real Italian deal, altogether a great dining experience

Dinner recently offered a choice of tables. We chose a table outside and were rewarded with a cool breeze. Service was very good and the meals came quickly. Serving sizes were ridiculously huge. Meals were lovely but too big. We could have shared a meal between two of us!

I went for the spaghetti and meatballs, interesting flavours, sweeter than I expected and it went very well with their recommended house red, 3 glasses and I could have had more :-). I'm not normally a very big red drinker, but this combination went down well. Service was great and fast.

Delicious Italian food cooked to order. Great selection on menu. Indoor/outdoor setting which can be quite noisy due to birds in the trees opposite. Delightful owners who are very attentive to client needs.

Excellent Italian and contemporary food. Hosts very welcoming and attentive. Interesting menu, highly recommend the baked prawns and avocado. Everything is cooked fresh so depending on what you choose there may be a wait. Would definitely eat here again and again. Good wine list.

If trip advisor had half marks I would give it 3.5 as it was better than just good. Pizza had plenty of toppings, good flavour just a bit greasy and floppy. I prefer a thin crusty crust. The setting is rather nice and across from the River. Price about right maybe slightly higher than expected.
