Come here for Northern Italian cooked by Luigi and staff. The chalkboard menu deserves your full attention. Byob! They provide the glasses, you provide the drink! See Luigi's travel slide show on the monitor and be the armchair traveller and gourmand through Northern Italy

Description
Trattoria Pasquale is a quaint little Italian restaurant located in South Tampa. Luigi Cavallaro, owner & chef, was born and raised in Bolzano, Italy. He attended culinary school at Merano, Italy. Luigi moved to his wife's hometown of Tampa in 1997 when he started "Luigi's Catering". After 12 years of quality service in the Tampa Bay area he decided to open Trattoria Pasquale (named after his father). We hope you feel like family when you visit our restaurant. Buon Appetito! BIG NIGHT at Trattoria Pasqaule is an Italian dining experience like none other in Tampa. Each month, we feature a different region of Italy and highlight its food and culture by offering a region specific 7 course meal. These regional courses are described in detail once they are served and they come with "an ample side of history." BIG NIGHT is a time to experience a new and rich culture amongst new and old friends.
