Pastabilities located in Armory Square of Syracuse is about to be located on the Food Network once again.

On Friday, December 18th, it'll be back in a return appearance on the Food Network with Guy Fieri of “Diners, Drive-in and Dives.”

The episode, which airs at 9 p.m. Friday, is part of a spin-off series called “America’s Favorites” for which Fieri and his son, Hunter, asked viewers to use videos to nominate their favorites from past “Triple D” episodes."

According to, the family of David and Erin Hertweck of Liverpool nominated Pastabilities. They sent Fieri a video in which their daughters, Lilia and Caraline, talk about their love of Pasta’s famous Spicy Hot Tomato Oil.

“One of the best things about living in Syracuse is a restaurant, our favorite, called Pastabilities,” Lilia Hertweck says in the video. They mention their favorite dishes: spaghetti and meatballs for Caraline and fettucine alfredo for Lilia.

Then Lilia pulls out a jar.

“But you know what my family all loves: Spicy Hot Tomato Oil!,” she says.

The video caught the attention of the Fieris, and helped Pasta’s earn a spot on the upcoming episode.

“We’re so thankful that they thought of us,” Pastabilities owner Karyn Korteling said. “I don’t really know them. It’s so nice they took the time to do this and it’s something we can really use at a time like this.”
