    First time trying Pasquale's as we were searching for a last minute reservation on Open Table. I read great reviews on this site and booked it within an hour of us arriving. From the perfectly executed Rack of Lamb, homemade Manicotii and our appetizers everything was served hot and homemade. Very impressed and will return.

    We have been going to Pasquales on MacLeod for years. Primarily for the food / service and general happy mood that we receive when we arrive. We have brought many clients ( in and out of town ) here as we have never received bad service and of course the Italian menu is a hit. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and make your stay enjoyable. On many occasions ( reservations ) we have held business meetings in the quiet back area and the staff routinely check on us. Great spot!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/9/2014
    We asked to split a Caesar salad to start. Our server returned with a full salad on one plate, an extra plate & utensils. He said, "The kitchen's really busy so I brought everything so you could split it." Firstly, he went to the trouble of getting the plate & utensils. Why not just split it in the kitchen himself? Secondly, if the kitchen is busy, should that affect service to the diner? No. I ordered the tortellini and asked if I could have it without green peppers. When it came, it had green peppers. He asked if was an allergy or preference. I said preference. As well as not telling us the special & making little eye contact, he seemed put out & distracted the entire time we were there. Really disappointed. This was on a Thurs evening.

    For a relaxing birthday celebration and a pause in the rush and bustle of our daily lives, this restaurant had lots of potential. But, the experience should not have included being rushed by anyone to make choices quickly. However, the servers entree recommendation was very good, the dining room was not crowded and the noise level was not intrusive.

    Heard about the place through some friends and gave it a shot. It looked like a nice restaurant and felt cozy but the service made it feel like I was at some kind of low end diner. The food wasn't anything special considering price point and I left almost as hungry as when I arrived. As far as Italian food goes, I've had far better for much less at the olive garden....

    We dined on a Sunday afternoon at 2; this was a quiet time for the restaurant so there was really no noise from other patrons. Our 4-yr-old joined us and although the childrens' items are not on the menu, there are options that can be made to order. But where this restaurant really shines is the portions for the price you pay. You really get value for what you order. My wife and I would have no reservations recommending Pasquale's to others and we plan to return again.

    An August evening found us on Pasquale's (green and treed for Macleod Trail) patio. Our server was very obliging. My Mom has veal Marsala whenever available – their rendition of it was lovely and rich. My husband went with the New York strip with crab, hollandaise and asparagus and thoroughly enjoyed it. No allergic reactions which he is prone to, usually triggered by processed ingredients, so the cuisine is “scratch-made”. My pepper steak was gorgeous. Each entrée was accompanied by the traditional roasted potatoes and al dente veg. So when you are looking for the classics perfectly prepared for a reasonable price (under $30, except for the surf and turf), layered with seamless service on a nice patio, this is it.

    Was asked to plan a birthday dinner and Pasquales was agreed upon. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome by the smiling staff, almost as you've been invited to dinner with family you haven't seen for a while. Then menu hasn't changed, the specials were popular but I had come for the Dry Ribs and Caesar Salad. The food came out all together and hot, the kitchen has timing down so no one waits and the food doesn't stay up on the pass very long. The portions are large but not too overwhelming. 3 of the group had Cannelloni & it was amazing. Homemade pasta and the fresh sauce was outstanding; I usually find it overly salty but not at Pasquales. from start to finish the experience was exceptional. I can hardly wait to go back.

    Inside was nicely decorated and the service good. Yet, the food was not impressive. 12 years ago, the brunch menu was exceptional but in the last two years the food quality is not the same. This place needs a new chef or a new menu. I ordered crab stuffed mushrooms for an appy and I couldn't eat most of it. There was very little crab, it was like I was eating a tbs full of cream cheese on an under seasoned cap! For dinner I had the chicken pollo. The only good item on the plate was the chicken. The asparagus was soggy, the Hollandaise was cold and congealed (clumpy not nice sauce and way too salty). My husband had the chicken parmigiana and he said it was adequate. Too much cheese & lacking in flavor. He'd rather eat at an Italian place.

    We find Pasquales fits the bill on many occasions. We love that it's a cut above most "family" restaurants, has linens and footed glassware - but isn't as costly as many high ends. The ambience is definitely more to formal and it's laid out in such a way that you can find more secluded corners, a larger room great for groups or a cozy fireplace table. They're also very accommodating re: special requests.

    We had gone out to Pasquales for my moms 50th birthday and we were ok with it. The food was pretty good but the silverware was dirty. It was busy so I understand why the service was a little bare. They did offer my mom a free desert for her birthday which was a nice touch. As a last resort place I would go again but not my first choice.

    Dining here is always pleasant. We were seated in the far room (not the room with the fireplace) near a ceiling speaker. As it was difficult to converse we asked if the sound could be turned down and it was immediately. This made conversation more pleasant though the dining room did fill up with happy customers. The Salmon & Halibut Provenzale was cooked perfectly and the Scallopini Caprice and a shared Cheese Cake with Blueberry sauce were enjoyed to the last bite. Service was attentive and friendly. We are looking forward to a return visit to try another of the many menu items.

    The 6 of us had a wonderful time. It's nice that you can get together with a group and have a conversation without coming out with a sore throat from yelling so you can hear one another. The food great. Our waiter was great, he had a couple of blips but nothing to get upset about. He noted them, apologized and got on with the service. The gals at the front desk were great. They made you feel at home from the minute you walked in. That to me is huge. I hate going into a place that has "nose in the air" hostess's Thank you for a enjoyable evening Sylvia

    Food was delicious but I wish the portions were just a bit bigger. I think that considering that the restaurant is just a tad nicer than another chain Italian restaurant, the service should be better. But our service was just acceptable, and we were given our bill early then our server said "no rush", and I noticed that no other table was given their bills early and the restaurant didn't seem terribly busy either so I didn't appreciate that. But other server who just walks around with a pitcher of water was very good and attentive, my cup was never empty for long.

    When we arrived for our reservation, we were greeted by a bartender who was not very friendly. I had originally made a reservation for 5 people but when we arrived, the number changed to 4. When I advised the bartender, she let out a huge sign like she was annoyed & said, "so & so will be back in a minute to seat you. Given that, the food was good, the ambience was good but what made our evening was the waitress. She was engaged, funny & friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to friends & family.

    This is a great Calgary family owned restaurant and we have been dining there for years. The menu is sufficiently extensive that it isn't boring, yet always reliable when you have a penchant for a familiar "comfort food" item. Needless to say it is authentically Italian with Pasquale as the chef/owner. I go there for business lunches & suppers in a booth where we can spread out papers, and also for quiet meals with family and friends. The back rooms are great when I've had small groups & presentations that need some privacy. The décor and ambience is a good blend of pleasant and modern functional. Service staff is always friendly and efficient. Lots of regulars go there for a reason!
