A word from Da Pasquale Trattoria Italiana
Da' Pasquale is perhaps the only local trattoria that, since its inception in 1989, has consistently prepared all of its dishes in the rich southern Italian tradition of Naples without pandering to American taste buds or trends.



Italian favorites, like Pasta e Fagioli, certainly need no introduction to the experienced diner, but, if it"s your first time eating at Da Pasquale, you may just feel like you have been reacquainted.



This family-run restaurant takes pride in creating an atmosphere as close to home as you will find outside of your own dining room and is one of the last truly family-friendly restaurants located in Beverly Hills.

    We've been going to Da Pasquale ever since they opened, and it is still our favorite! The service is wonderful, the food exceptional, as is the chef and is so accommodating with special requests. We have taken everyone we know and love to Da Pasquale and will continue to do so!

    This is the perfect homey Italian restaurant. They do fairly traditional food, but the quality is anything but normal. Top rate in every way. From the delicious bread served on arrival to every dish. Outstanding. Also, good cocktails. Try the Ananas. Every city deserves a feel-good restaurant like this one.

    For years we have been able to make a reservation and arrive on time for our table which is always ready. No waiting 15 minutes for your booked table. The food is fine, not too trendy, but very tasty. Bronzino is excellent, various pasta and pizza very good and reasonably priced. No rip off here.

    We both ordered the vongole but the pasta was so salty we sent it back. We then ordered the osso buco and it was also salty but not so much that we couldn't eat it. Tell the waiter before you order to hold back on the extra salt. Other than that it is a great place to eat.

    This place is authentic Italian: wait staff, maitre'd, homemade pasta and diners. The menu has a variety of choices and we chose the simplest ones: pizza and spaghetti. My "white" pizza (no tomatoes) had shaved parmesan, prosciutto and spinach trickled with olive oil and it was delicious. My husband's spaghetti bolognese was made with homemade pasta and the sauce was delicious. I splurged and had two desserts: tiramisu and panne cotta. Both were excellent but that was the best tiramisu I have ever eaten. I can't wait to return.

    Da Pasquale is always excellent. The food is very fresh and consistent. The vibe is very neighborhood friendly with a strong authentic Italian feel. The Penne Arrabiata is a dream. We are not meat or shellfish eaters but we found plenty of fish and vegetarian options. We went on a busy Saturday night and it was lovely. Our wait staff was wonderful at first and then lost touch with us a bit toward the end. Ultimately it was a completely satisfying experience and we will be back again soon.

    Very reasonable prices. Obviously very popular, had to wait quite a while for our booked table. Food is good, however, my pasta was far too al dente to eat. This was a surprise as there are so many pasta dishes. Will try again though.

    I did the dineLA event and it was o.k., a sautéed calamari appetizer and a light fish for dinner. it was fine but I still swear by the Pasta with Oil and garlic. it's the best I've ever had anywhere....and this is a neighborhood gem.

    It's good Italian food (I'm a tough critic, being Italian and knowing good from very good). Good staff; nice room; good table spacing, so you can actually talk. Nicely priced. Nothing pretentious. Friendly. Good. Busy. It's obvious why people like it.

    I came here on the DineL.A offer excited about trying a new restaurant with great reviews. The calamari starter was nice enough but nothing special, the crab gnocchi main was better - rich, creamy spicy sauce, decent amount of crab - delicious. However, the food was presented on massive plates which in turn made the portions look tiny which both me and my friend found really odd and a bit off putting. The reviews had promised a really friendly, warm environment - the owner seemed annoyed that I had booked and put out to show me my table - the waitress was nice but not overly attentive. Overall, on the DineL.a deal this was fine but I wouldn't rush back, I'd try other Italians first.

    I dined during Dine LA and the food on the menu sounded great, but it was only fair in taste. The calamari had a fishy taste and smell, but the eggplant appetizer was good. The main course was the filet sole and it was too salty, but the carrot and asparagus were good. My friend had the pasta dish with ground beef and peas, but her noodles were stuck together. Finally, the best part of the night was the desserts! The panna cotta with berry topping was perfect and creamy. The tiramisu was wonderful too. We both had glasses of wine, but there was nothing special about it. The service was excellent and our server spoke Italian and the host was very kind and checked in with us. The good rating was for the dessert and the service.

    A surprising number of unusually interesting meat and fish specials on a Saturday) but a long list of pizzas and -- drumroll, please -- really spectacular pasta, as good as I've had in Los Angeles. The owner greeted us and chatted with us, pointed out his wife and kids working there. I think this makes a huge difference, it's like visiting your Italian relatives. My wife and I brought a guest from out of town, who happens to owns a restaurant in North Carolina which recently won the award for best casual dining in the State -- and he loved, really loved the food, especially the ossobuco. Packed with mostly adults and families, attentive service, easy parking, not objectionably noisy.

    It was our first time in Beverly Hills and we found this restaurant online and decided to check it out. We were expecting just the average Italian restaurant. We couldn't have been more wrong. No words can describe how amazing the food was. Great service and friendly staff even though it was packed. The noise level was energetic. I'm sure Beverly Hills is full of great restaurants but this one is definitely worth checking out.

    We met up with old friends who are LA locals. They had not heard of Pasquale's, but they sure do now. The menu was full of goodness. Generous, delicious preparations and healthy. We had a string of small plates and pizza for appetizers. Finished with lasagna, great ragu. So happy they do BYO with reasonable corkage. Allows wine snobs to pull something out of the cellar. Service was entertaining, also. Tab was really reasonable. Will make this a regular stop when in LA.

    Had a group of 10 people and the service was great. Table was ready promptly at the reservation time of 6pm. Earlier is better b/c it's starts to get very busy around 7. The food was authentic and amazing. The entire table raved about the bread, pizza and pastas. Our server was nice enough to keep our cake until dessert and even cut it for us. Great service, great food. Couldn't have asked for a better night!
