Set in an unimpressive strip mall, this restaurant delivers where it counts. The food is first-rate, fresh, and made with care. Every entree our table had was delicious. The seafood pescatore was particularly good, as was the chicken piccata. Try to save room for dessert. Make sure you make reservations, as this is a small, intimate place. Our service was... More

My wife and I visited Pacino's and were pleasantly surprised. In a little strip mall, this rivals five star restaurants that we've been to. Plenty of excellent food and personal service. The owner visited us several times. We will definitely return when we're in town again.

We eat here regularly! Food is great! Quiet, cozy atmosphere! Thu, Fri and Sat there is low key keyboard music to dine by. Everyone is friendly and inviting. They have a fabulous early bird menu from 4 to 6. I would recommend you make a resv. Beer and wine only.

We were able to make a reservation and were so glad we did. This place runs like a well-oiled machine. There are so many delicious options, and we appreciated a place that offers Italian classics alongside Greek favorites too. Several with me enjoyed the spaghetti and meat sauce or sausage. I wavered but ultimately chose the veal salmbitocca. Both were... More

OK the reasons I go out for dinner is good service and food I haven't prepared at home yet (I love to cook and am pretty good at it). These reasons are why Pacino's is rated #1 in Garden City. Let's start with service. We both were set on having the mushroom ravioli special and asked what wine would pair... More

We're not usually adventurous or risk-taking diners, but we decided to try something local as opposed to a chain restaurant experience. The Trip Advisor reviews impressed us so we sought out Pacino's--ending up there just as they opened for business on the day the governor announced plans to evacuate South Carolina. They had an awesome "Early Bird" menu with affordable... More

It has been 4 years since we last dined here and I don't know why it took us so long to come back. The food is fantastic, we both had the Veal Saltimbocca with Pasta side as well as a choice of salad or soup. Service was good, Amanda was very attentive and personable. House wine was good as well.

Went with several friends. Suggest a reservation; it is small and cozy. The service was attentive, food was magnificent, and the piano player added relaxation to the atmosphere. The owner cares about her patrons; checking with the tables several times. Don't pass this one up!

We never miss a visit to Pacino's when we come to the beach. Favorite by all standards. The early-bird special is an incredible buy for fantastic Italian food. The full menu thereafter is to die for. Best veal dishes I've ever had. Restaurant is small so call ahead for reservations. Always busy.
