Pacinos is a family Italian restaurant, they pride them self of being child friendly because it's important to them for the whole family to dine in all together. They also have changing table on their rest rooms for your lil ones. Pacinos located in Flemington but they also owned a sister restaurant named Carosello in Moonee Ponds.

I was looking for a spacious restaurant with a warm environment and of course child friendly to celebrate my birthday and also my husband birthday with our friends. And yes, I'm on that stage where all of my friends starts popping up lil ones and I do want them to attend so no more too fancy restaurant for now. I found Pacinos with a high ratings over 4 which is pretty impressive so I decided to held it there to give it a try.

When I arrived, I was really hungry so I ordered one serving of King Prawns - sautéed garlic butter and chilli ($17) to calm my stomach down a bit. It was surprisingly really good, the prawn was big, succulent and flavourful. I would love to have them again.

Salt & Pepper Calamari Fritti - flash fried with salt and pepper, served with salad, aioli and chips ($28). The calamari was gone so quickly that means it's good. The salad was fresh and the chips was crunchy but not dry.

Lasagne - bolognese, mozzarella and parmesan ($20). Sadly, the lasagne was the let down of the meal. It was pretty dry and not enough flavour at all. It needed more fresh tomato, salt and cheese to elevate the flavour.

I ordered two types of pasta; Linguini Carbonara - bacon, onion, garlic, cream and egg ($22). The carbonara sauce was creamy as expected and everybody seems to love them. Linguini Vongole - baby clams tossed with olive oil, fresh chilli and garlic ($22). This was the favourite of the day, we even order more. The clams was well cooked but the star was the pasta it self, very well seasoned but remain light and refreshing.

We also ordered some Pizza and they come out pretty good but the pasta still remain our favourite. The service was fast but it's pretty quite during Sunday lunch.
