Da Pasquale Trattoria Italiana
Da Pasquale serves classic Italian cuisine in its spacious eatery steeped in the warmth and charm one would expect in a Tuscan villa. Appetizer options include the frutti di mare al guazzetto, a fresh seafood sautée and the prosciutto san daniele served with your choice of melon or burrata, both of which are simply delicious and great to share. Da Pasquale's pizzas are crowd pleasers that come with red and white sauce options, as well as a variety of toppings. Specialties include veal ossobuco with roasted potatoes, the hearty vegetarian lasagna and the pappardelle pasta with asparagus and juicy chicken.
Da Pasquale proudly serves heaping amounts of luscious southern Italian cuisine to your plate with charisma, staying true to its roots the entire time.
This is a popular place, so making an online reservation is the advisable thing to do. At our table for 4, to whet our appetites, we ordered Bruschetta and Insalata di Bietole (beet salad), followed by the entrees of fresh sole (fish of the day), Ravioli al Sugo di Pomodoro, Spaghetti alla Pescatore, and Lasagna Napoletana. The highlights were the balsamic dressing-enhanced beet salad, "fisherman" spaghetti with fresh clams, mussels and shrimp and lasagna with meatballs. The ravioli had a bit too much tomato sauce, and the sole was almost tasteless, not to mention the pricey $40 tab. Our table was close to the front door; we would have settled for a better location, but the place was already packed. This led to a fairly noisy environment...but hey, "C'est la vie ["Such is life." Pardon my French : )] In the final analysis, I give Da Pasquale a rating of 3.5 stars. Having dined here for the first time, this is a good rating. This restaurant is worth a visit, but after all, it is in Beverly Hills, so the total price will likely be much higher than the usual fare.
As always the food is delicious. It was busy Saturday night server was overloaded.
Simply put: exactly what you expect when you go out to a casual dinner. Good food. Place with enough of a crowd without being too much. Efficient service... Do make sure to make reservations though 😉
This is my new "find." Everything that comes out of this kitchen is simply delicious. This was my second time there and everything was prepared as perfectly as the first time i ate there, so I wasn't dreaming. Fresh flavors bursting, lovely wines, personable, attentive service. Yes, yes, yes. I'm taking my sister to Da Pasquale next when she visits from Minnesota, and can't wait because I know it will delight her. Thank you to the chefs and the staff at this wonderful gem.
Although it was not bad taste food and dish presentation the place, restroom was a bit old and dirty
Great Italian gem in Beverly Hills. Good food, but also good value for being in 90201
Had not been back for a while - loved seeing the new bar and decor. Our server was wonderful- great Italian hospitality. My favorite items still on the menu. We had a great time. Nice to see all the family members still working hard!
Nice Friday night with my wife
Nice N.Y. like vibe and solid Italian food
Food is good but portions are small
Great restaurant but VERY noisy. If you want conversation, go early or late...
Absolute perfection. Fun, delicious food, and totally unpretentious.
Tonight the service was so below par. Our server disappeared and we never were asked about dessert. We actually had to ask for our check.
At lunch, great value. Easy parking above. Some pastas are homemade. The service very efficient and did not try to rush us.
Server and food were amazing!
We love this restaurant! The food is amazing, service is great and it is a good value. Highly recommend!
Can get busy, meaning you may have to be patient with service, but the food is well worth it. I’ve had a pizza, several appetizers, Siciliano with eggplant, cappuccinos, and the tiramisu and holy crap everything has been delicious. Will revisit this gem often!
We had the aglio oglio and it was like being back in Rome! Great service, professional and caring. Delicious salad and pasta! Loved atmosphere too.
The food at Da Pasquale is excellent...from the fish to the pasta to the pizza. I generally do not eat pasta but often make an exception when we eat here. The vegetarian lasagna is fantastic. When we were there last they were running late and we didn't get seated until 35 minutes past our reservation time. The owner was very kind and explained the dealy and we waited.
Always perfect! Food is authentic and amazing and so are the owners. Our favorite restaurant.
A wonderful, family run Beverly Hills institution. Always busy with regulars!
Simple italian food
Need to go
Diavola Pizza was remarkable
Great for lunch or dinner with friends Would recommend this location for family gatherings as well!
This was a relatively inexpensive place to eat inan expensive town. But theambiance reminded me of a warm local restaurant in Italy. I would go there again!
Delicious but noisy
Always good food. Pleasant service and atmosphere
This is authentic Italian food like I haven’t had since I went to Naples Italy. The pasta is homemade sauce is extraordinary Chianti is delicious. If you know good Italian cuisine this place will not disappoint. I would highly recommend it.
One of the great west coast Italian restaurants Consistently great. I love this place.
A bit of waiting although we had booked (15/20min) but good food. The restaurant was very busy
Da Pasquale Trattoria is a fantastic restaurant. The food is perfect (and many choices available), great of course if you are a vegetarian or need gluten free food. The service is fast and attentive. You can tell this restaurant is family owned. The "host" I am sure is the owner (if not, he acts like he is because the place runs like a "clock." Please patronize this restaurant for great food, great ambiance and reasonable prices.
Da Pasquale is consistent in the quality of its food and customer service. This restaurant is my go-to place when visitors what to eat at a good Italian restaurant. Wish that they were open on Sunday!
Started out very well and we thought the meal would be a treat. Sadly not to be. After first course we’re asked to move table?to seat large group. After this service and food indifferent in favour of locals which disappointed and totally spoiled the evening.
Nice low key neighborhood type Italian restaurant with good food
This is a great neighborhood restaurant. I’ve been going there for years, and the quality is consistently good.
Great value. Always pleasant courteous service. They are generally busy at dinner time- make a reservation.
fabulous freshly made food, great service. the only problem is it is extremely noisy, so if there are more than 2 people sitting close to each other, it is difficult to hear and concentrate.
The food is always wonderful. We come from Calabasas about once a month to have lunch or dinner with friends while shopping in Beverly Hills
Good food, cramped, relatively inexpensive, too loud for a date
I was skeptical when reading the Trip Advisor and Yelp reviews because we had recently eaten at the #2 Italian restaurant in the Valley and it was mediocre at best. We started with the prosciutto and burrata appetizer (which was very good), followed by the beet salad. I am not a beet fan but I would still say it was good. I had the lasagna napoletana and my husband had the spaghetti pescatore. Both of these dishes were phenomenal!! I'm very excited that they are opening a new location in the Valley. Can't wait!!
