“Nice food and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2010

We chose Don Pasquale for lunch on a Monday in September 2010, and were led by the waitress into a cavernous downstairs dining area. We both ordered foccacias which were quite nice. The service was very friendly and efficient. No complaints.

We had lunch at Don Pasquale last weekend. The pizza was really tasty. Good, efficient, friendly service. All in all, good value.

“A Fantastic Family Restaurant... :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2010

I have to say that Don Pasquale restaurant is my all time favourite places to eat in Cambridge and has been for many years. The family run restaurant has always catered well for my young family. My now grown up children, recall being carried down the stairs in their buggies by Kim the owner, who, consequently doesn't seem to have stopped this custom....as I witnessed last Saturday lunch! The restuarant has a great family feel to it...the location is the BEST you'll find in Cambridge...Sitting on the terrace in the summer, watching the world fo by is as equally enjoyable when cozying up in the winter down in the basement.

The food is authentic Italian food, which is always freshly prepared. Which is so handy when you have a picky member of the family. It is also great to see your food being prepared in the open plan kitchen on the ground floor. I personally would recommend the homemade Tiramisu, it is to die for! The service is fast and friendly, the regular staff and happy and welcoming.

The food is delicious and portions generous. I think my only complaint would have to be, not enough seating outside in the summer.. When we have friends from out of town come and visit, this is the restaurant we take them to!

“Authentic and delicious! it doesn't get better than this!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2010

After pondering over whether to pay silly money at the 'celebrity' italian place round the corner, we decided on trying out Don Pasquale restaurant in Cambridge's lively market square. As it was a lovely sunny day, we sat outside to eat (and people-watch..great fun!) and were made instantly at home by the young co-owner Pascky. The restaurant is both family owned and run, and it shows.. This is the real deal: we enjoyed EXCELLENT pizza and pasta, at a good price and in a wonderful ambience. The service was prompt and friendly, and the food out of this world
I would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant if you want wonderfully traditional, freshly made to order Italian food. I honestly don't think it gets better than this.
