Great Name

A lot of people ask me if this is my place, because of my name and all. Let me say I have no connection to this place other than my name is Pasquale. I believe this was once a chain out of Alabamma, that did not make it, and the people who owned the franchise turned it into a mom... read more

I live in Gainesville. I seem to come here every 5-7 years just to be reminded how bad they really are. I have no idea how they are still in business. I'm sure I've had worse but can't remember when. If you're looking for simple Italian... choose Atlas Pizza, Little Italy or Mellow Mushroom. Terrible Buffet... If you ignore this... More

The old Pasquale's is no more. The owner sold it and it has become half it's old self. The other half has become bbq. Half the old menu was removed to make room for the new. They still have a buffet and salad bar.

I have been going to Pasquale's since I can remember! I always eat off the buffet and am never disappointed. It's a great value for good pizza, salad, pasta, and bread! I consider it a Gainesville staple and try to visit it each time I'm visiting family in the area!

The service was good! Food was disgusting and cold. I ended up extremely sick after eating here. Called the manager all he said was oh sorry then told me what they got on inspection.

I've been eating at this restaurant since I was a little kid - over 30 years of delicious pizza and pasta and garlic bread like no other! (I'm getting hungry writing this!!!) Ok, so I haven't eaten there for about 5 years because it was just so gross to go in the door and see nasty old moldy ceiling tiles... More

worst food experience in a while. bland pasta over overcooked spaghetti instead of linguine that I ordered. I had to get sauce from the buffet to even eat the stuff. Barbecue was good but too little for the money. Slaw was all pickle juice not my thing. Fries were great!!! Tea was good also.

This is my first review for tripadvisor--I've been reading reviews for years so thought it was time I added in my two cents. We went to Pasquale's with a certificate for lunch. The food is just terrible. after reading reviews we decided not to get the buffet. I had the eggplant with ziti, ricotta and a red sauce--sounded interesting but... More
