With so many other dining options in the neighborhood, you might overlook this gem of an Italian restaurant. The food and service are excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. The wait staff were attentive, but not intrusive. Even on the busiest hours of a Saturday night, I had no trouble getting a table. You'd be hard-pressed to make the... More

Pasquales's Osteria is always a good choice for Italian food. I've been here many times over the years and they are excellent. The servers are always friendly and the prices are very reasonable. Their sea bass & veal chops are outstanding delicious. I absolutely love this place.“I wish I could dine here every night.”highly recommended.

If you do not have a chance to go to Italy at the moment but want to experience an amazing Italian food than look no further. The snapper with the mushroom sauce is the best in town. An their tiramisu is worth being fat for.

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Pasquale's Osteria this Christmas Eve. We find the food consistently delicious. We have never been disappointed - we especially enjoy the veal parm. and the Chicken Martini entrees. A wonderful surprise was the Limoncello that was sent to our table as a treat. Pasquale is a wonderful chef and just a really nice guy... More

Bread and dip for starters were excellent along with the calamari. Seafood combo dinners were excellent as well, with some spice to the sauce. We would return. Since we were in town for a visit, was a little apprehensive as the place was maybe half full on a Friday night. More locals just give it a try.

My husband and I and our family have dined at Pasquale's Osteria for many years. (He has been at this location @17 years) It is small and intimate with white linens and soft Italian music (usually Andrea Bucelli) singing in the background. Pasquale is the chef and his staff are always courteous and ready to adjust a menu or a... More
