Happened to spot this place one evening and made note to check it out. All seemed good from family owned, soft music, requisite mural and cozy ambiance. Staff very attentive. Then the food came. Warm rolls had taste and texture of frozen dough. Salad was a few pieces of iceberg with one slice of a roma tomato. Entrees came and... More

If you're looking for homemade pasta with amazing flavor then this is the place. It is the antithesis of the cliche chain Italian restaurant Everything about this place feels authentic, the over the top gaudy murals, the cheap italian wine, you can see into the kitchen, from the second you walk in. The chef cooks everything to order so the... More

Family owned and operated, Pasqualone's is one of the best two or three Italian restaurants in Columbus.

10 Reasons why you should not try this restaurant: 1. When you call for a reservation, if you do not want the call answered by the owner or his wife, who, if you frequent the place, will recognize your voice and you will get into a conversation where you might forget to make the reservation. Don't call this place. 2.... More

Wow, unbelievable dining experience as good as any in the world. I met a party of 10 friends for dinner. This restaurant is tiny but filled with love and amazing food. We had the antipasta appetizer that was incredible. I had the lobster ravioli which was incredible. I can't wait to return to this amazing restaurant!

With out of town guests, they asked to go back to a place we took them last year. Yes, it is Pasqualone's. This place always excels. Dave Pasqualone's and his wife greeted us at the door and welcomed us back. Perhaps the city's best server, Chris, welcomed us to our table. From a wine recommendation to a full briefing of... More

We have been to so many restaurants in the city. I am surprised it took us so many years to come across this Italian Restaurant. I am sad that we did not discover this secret years ago. As other reviewers mention, the restaurant is in a strip mall and looks average. But the atmosphere inside transports you to Italy! The... More

We've been here many times and the food is always too good to put into words. Lasagna and veal loaf are the best ever! Tonight we had chicken gorgonzola and literally licked the plate clean. We've been to most high end restaurants and Pasqualone's is the best food. Period.

Several years ago I befriended a local chef who hosts events on her property. I asked her where she likes to go for dinner, since she's such an excellent cook herself. She recommended Pasqualones, and I understand why. This is my favorite restaurant for feeling indulged. The food is outstanding & the service is exceptional. The atmosphere is quiet &... More
