Description: The Original Pasquini's on Broadway has been bringing generations together, filling stomachs and putting smiles on faces for more than 25 years. Our philosophy is to offer high-quality, authentic Italian food in a unique and relaxed atmosphere. Here is our story... In 1986, young Melinda Pasquini and her family started a small pizzeria on South Broadway in Denver. She spent her childhood making pizzas, waiting tables and learning the ropes. The family put their hearts, souls and money into two things: quality ingredients and growing the business. The Pasquini family knew that fresh ingredients, real cheeses, and made-from-scratch pizza dough made their old-world Italian recipes taste better, and they refused to settle for anything less. This is how they distinguished themselves from other pizza places and Italian restaurants in town. Word about Pasquini's home-made lasagna and delicious desserts traveled fast, and within a handful of years the Original Pasquini's restaurant on Broadway became so popular that they had to expand to the second floor of the building to accommodate the line of hungry people wrapped around the restaurant. In 2004, Melinda purchased the Original Pasquini's restaurant from her brother. Today she continues to offer the same old-world recipes that her family brought over from Italy and serve generations of customers, from young tots enjoying their first slice to seasoned adults who remember their first visit to the Original Pasquini's more than two decades ago. We are a family Italian restaurant offering take-out, delivery, and catering.

Pretty good fast food Italian. Some of the appetizers are very good. Never seem to have the deserts on the menu.

“Great Neighborhood Place to watch the game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I love going to Pasquini's Pizza on 32nd and Zuni Street, it is 3 blocks from my house. They have friendly staff an amazing happy hour - $1 PBR beers, and $1 one topping pizza slices or for $5 you can have a slice of pizza, PBR and a well shot of your choice! Now that is the Highland’s Happy Meal!
Pizza is great, salads are good, and pasta is pretty good for a bar / restaurant. LoHi is an old (Mafia) Italian neighborhood and there are places with better pasta. Garlic knots are fresh and hot, and they always have daily specials to keep you coming back for more.

Although most of the staff is very attentive to the customers needs, sometimes there are those staff members that get “lost” either in trying to pick up a date, or they are surfing the internet or texting when they should be working. They also need to be able to have staff work both sides, or the shift supervisor needs to pick up the slack. There have been a few times drinks or food half been slow on a busy day.

“Personal pizza.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

What a great idea - let the kids build their own pizza, such fun! The fod was hot and fresh with something for everyone. I liked the casual dining atmosphere where we were comfortable being ourselves with the kids.

“Good buffet & family friendly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We actually went to the Pasquini's out by Park Meadows. We happened to go in on a weekend when they had a buffet. It was good for entire family with pasta, several pizzas and salad. We love their bread sticks and marinara. Dough balls for the kids to play with too.
