A group of 5 had the pleasure of dining here. We were greeted by the head waiter who introduced us to the chef. The friendly atmosphere made it seem like we were guests in the chef's home. The antipasto, mozzarella bread, and mussels were outstanding. Among the five of us, 4 different entrees were ordered. Bites were shared and all... More

This was our fist visit to Pasqualone's but it will not be our last. First the owner/chef Dave along with our waiter Craig met us at the door and introduced themselves. Once they found out that it was my birthday it was game on to make sure that the night was extra special, and it was. The food was AMAZING.... More

Honestly, with no disrespect to Lola and Guissepe's, Pasqualone's is our new favorite in town. Not sure why we couldn't find this on our own...dear friends had to take us there to introduce us to the most amazing Italian so far in all Ohio. We are pretty picky when it comes to food and nothing here disappointed us. Just the... More

Pasqualone's is hands down the most authentic Italian restaurant in Columbus!!! The food is fresh and made with the finest ingredients!!! They always offer nightly specials, after enjoying the best chicken parmigiana the previous time, my waiter talked me into the six cheese pork brisket lasagna! It was incredible!!! I must note my friend ordered the veal special and it... More

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!
