We had a reservation at 7:15 and were told to wait in the bar it would be “a few” minutes as the kitchen was backed up...at 8:00 the hostess came over and said it would still be a while longer! Luckily we had already managed to get a table at the bar and had ordered. Food was good but appetizer came out with 2 of the meals but all meals did not come out at the same time. Don’t know that we will go back.

It took almost a half an hour to be seated, even though we had a reservation.

Then things really slowed down. It took forever to get a drink, water, etc, and I think our server was trying hard, just overloaded.

Two of the four meals were good and two were fair. Not what one would expect for a VERY pricey menu.

When you want great good Italian food in Sarasot, come to Pascone’s... From red sauce old fashioned Itslian homemade pizza, meatball , bolognese sauce , burrata caprese salad to classic italian fare of seafood and veal dishes... The mellow memorable sounds of Sinatra, Dean Martin and crooners give an ambiance of an enjoyable evening...

The food never disappoints. Always fresh and super delicious. Plentiful too. Marcus was entertaining and doting as usual. We always request him. He gives the best recommendations. Can’t wait to return.

Réservation for 7PM not seated until 7:40PM and no food until 8:05 PM. Disorganized and inefficient. Not likely to see me again

Food was excellent. Service was slow paced, we did not feel rushed. The two of us sat at a small round table that would be more suitable outside at a cafe, felt awkward inside the restaurant. It was very noisy, we had to lean into each other to hear the conversation (good thing we were at a small table!) Slightly more expensive than other neighborhood Italian restaurants but it was worth it. I would recommend to friends with the understanding that it is noisy with small tables for two.

Okay food, but service is painfully slow and the noise level is ferocious. There are many better Italian restaurants.

Food was quite good but service was horrible!!! A 6:30 reservation took 3 hours with no apologies from the management/owner and was quite rude when it was brought to her attention that we had been waiting almost an hour for our dinner. Food we ordered was missed and not brought and then was offered to be taken care of but was still on our check. We thought we might try it again because the food was good and figured maybe just a bad night but the owner was so unprofessional that we will NEVER step foot in their again!

Waited an hour past our reservations to be seated. Then made us move tables, then another 15 minutes to get menus and water. Rude and unapologetic. Bread and food very slow to get out with service continuing to be poor. I've eaten here several times before and wanted to entertain friends at a place I liked, but not sure I will be back. Food was very good but customers need to be treated better than this. A lot of unhappy customers last night and people going to get water pitchers to service theit own tables.

Service was disappointing. Despite having a reservation we waited 20 minutes past our reservation time. That would not be bad for a Saturday night, however our service was beyond poor. One member of our party spoke to the owner/manager about the poor service early on- yet no improvement. I would avoid this restaurant during peak time windows as they are not staffed to accommodate the crowd. The food was good and all 6 of us enjoyed the meal, however the service was horrible.

It’s a lovely restaurant to gather with friends. Service was a little slow but there were a couple of very large groups so I think that effected it. Wonderful food, wine and music. We will return often.

One of our reasons that this restaurant is our new favorite, is the atmosphere! Warm wood wall coverings, partially carpeted floors, ambient lighting and a delightful piano player. The restaurant was full and moderately busy when we arrived at 6:10 for our reservation. We had a nice table for our table of 4 and were promptly greeted by our waiter. He was attentive, knowledgeable and a big bright smile!
My husband and friend had the spaghetti w/meatballs and myself and friends hubby had spaghetti carbonara. Perfectly cooked, presented and devoured! I was not able to eat all of my portion and nice take home containers were used for left-overs! 5 thumbs up 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Great place to meet up with friends and be able to talk. Service was good and food delicious especially the salad and soup. I had the roasted chicken because I had it here before but it was over cooked a bit this time so dry.

We have been to Pascone's a number of times and have always enjoyed it fully.
This past Saturday evening they had a large party of 35 and unfortunately we waited a very long time before we got our meals. we were seated at 7pm and our entries did not come until 8:20pm.
We will be back and I hope this will not happen again.

We sat outside because we prefer it, but also to avoid very noisy dining room. The mosquitoes did arrive but that’s just nature and no fault of the restaurant. One liked his Linguini Vongole, the other two found both meals way over salted and not up to expectations. Our waiter Anthony did his job well. Do not plan to return.

Very nice dining experience. Home cooked Italian fare with a diverse menu of pastas, meats, and seafood. Hosted business party of 10 and everyone enjoyed themselves. Array of reasonable bottles of wine as well as by the glass. Service and ambiance were exceptional. Would highly recommend Pascone's; you won't be disapointed!

We had been once to the bar a few weeks ago and had great drinks and calamari. Decided to try for dinner and was disappointed. Food was too salty. Overpriced pasta. On a positive, piano player was a nice addition and added to the ambiance. Probably won't be back.

We were here on New Years Eve. The restaurant was full but that did not impact the service or the quality of the food one bit, I had the filet with white truffle spinach. The filet was a perfect rare and the spinach was tasty. My companion had the veal and he said it was very good, we both enjoyed the pumpkin lobster bisque although it is a bit pricey. The Caesar salad was big enough for two. We will certainly return to this restaurant,

A treasure! I have eaten there twice (with very fussy friends) and we love it. Highly recommend the Snapper Francaise and the Chicken Rigatoni. Wine list is extensive and very well priced. The Wente Pinot Noir is amazing. Waiter Markus provides wonderful individual attention and is truly engaged ensuring your dining experience is great. Owner Judy is attentive and committed to this family owned restaurant. This is so much better than any of the chains. The atmosphere is lovely, with dark woods and white table cloths. I feel as if I am in Tuscany. Prices are very reasonable and the food is fresh and delicious. This is one of the best restaurants in Sarasota.
