Pasquale himself makes you feel like family and the pasta is what pasta should be. The service, the wine and the food are the best and the price is quite reasonable. Pasquale's is a must stop for dinner while in Lucca.

We had to wait a week to get into Pasquale but it was worth the wait. The fish will compete with the best you can find. Pasquale took time to recommend a lovely local wine which was not on the wine list and which was not more expensive than others. Happily we arrived early and had superb service until 09.00... More

This restaurant has been open for 5 years and we had the good fortune to eat here each of the 5 years. This high quality of service and food continues. We are in Lucca for 2 weeks and the first day we make reservations on the first day for at least a couple of nights. If you do not make... More

This is a small restaurant, with excellent seafood! We always make it a point to eat at least one meal with Pasquale. Opens at 8:00 pm, be sure to make a reservation as he's one of the best venues in Lucca for seafood.

Ok you are not going to like the outside, the toilets, the frontage, but who cares this night was one of our best and we know how to eat and drink. You must book, and be prepared for a very artisan style evening. Just look at the wine list it is staggering not only in size and price but importantly... More

We visited Da Pasquale twice during our visit to Lucca in late August. The service, quality of the food, wines and olive oil is a magic experience. Mr Pasquale gave us his personal attention and helped us choose all that we had to eat and drink. Fish dishes and steaks were amazing as were the starters ( 3 item fish... More

Tried booking this restaurant for a Thursday night 5 weeks ahead of time and Pasquale emailed me apologizing profusely because he was totally booked. Luckily he had a table for the next night. As my GF has very limited culinary options I asked him the day before if he could grill some chicken for her and he gladly obliged. Upon... More

The best food in Lucca! Honestly you must make a reservation and go during your trip. Pasquale is the most generous man we've ever met! We arrived here really excited after reading the reviews and making a reservation well in advance to find disappointment as the chef was unfortunately hospitalised and the place therefore of course had to close. We... More

We visited after recommendations from tripadvisor. Exceeded our expectations. We travel a lot in Italy so we are always keen to try new places. This was excellent, and our host Pasquale made the experience a memorable one by explaining ingredients , advising on wines and oils (no hard sell) and just generally making the whole meal more interesting. We will... More
