I had an opportunity to dine at Pasquale's Osteria with a group of friends. Unfortunately, the dinner did not live up to the reputation that had been described to me. The food was average with moderate portions, with the exception of the linguine with clams and mussels, which a colleague said was excellent. Having traveled to Tuscany several times, I... More

Food was very good but this was the best wine pour I have ever seen and I have eaten in hundreds if not thousands of good restaurants . It was basically a public pour. We all enjoyed our food except my wife who had penne vodka but she wasn't feeling well so maybe that's why . I had cavatelli broccoli... More

Everything my family ordered was delicious. Eggplant rollatini app was amazing, the dipping oil for the bread was outstanding, chicken marsala and scarpariello perfect - potatoes were so good in the sauces, i wish they had more on the plate.

Pasquale's is hands down my favorite restaurant. The staff (Tony) is an amazing host and Pasquale himself meticulously ensures every meal is cooked to perfection. I've searched hard for a restaurant that genuinely gets to know you and makes you wanting to keep coming back and Pasquale's is it!!! Feels just like a home cooked meal each and every time... More

The ingredients are fresh and the food delicious. The service is very attentive. Ask for the meatball appetizer, which is not listed on the menu.

I have been eating at this restaurant for over 10 years and consistently the food is always excellent. Meals are reasonably priced but the taste is priceless. The owner is always there and always happy to meet you. If you like good traditional flavors with plenty of garlic this is the spot to dine. If his Holiness the pope of... More

Excellent Italian food and wonderful cocktails (one of the best French Martini's I've ever had). We also loved the service. They appeared to only have one servers despite the busy evening - that being said, he was incredibly attentive and not over bearing. Our only complaint was that the portions were much smaller than expected. Their dishes are very shallow,... More

The meals are made with fresh ingredients, well prepared, and delicious. My favorite is the Snapper Livorneses. An appetizer not listed on the menu, but you may order, are the meatballs - fantastic. The service is attentive and very friendly. I would recommend a reservation for a Saturday night as the restaurant is in high demand.
