Lovely restaurant, we shared a pasta dish and a pizza both were delicious, then an amazing tiramisu and a scoop of ice cream, all very fairly priced. A great Bottle of Chardonnay rounded it all off.
The service was very efficient and the staff were lovely.

Choose from the fiery mega calzone with spicy sausage and chilli, or a range of trusty classics. Sumptuous antipasti plates, pasta imported direct from Italy and traditional Italian breakfasts are also offered on the Don Pasquale menu.
Ever family friendly, Don Pasquale in Cambridge offers a varied bambini menu just for kids, with miniature versions of Italian classics on offer. Milkshakes, coffees and chilled Italian beers are served at the bar, as well as a selective international wine list.
A cosy hideaway, guests can dine in the atmospheric cellar dining room at Don Pasquale restaurant. In the heart of the historic city, Don Pasquale restaurant is a 9-minute drive from Cambridge Rail Station.

Visited this restaurant on Wednesday for a pre-concert meal. Food excellent, staff OK but perhaps would benefit from a little customer care training. For example, two of our party ordered portobello mushrooms as a starter but received mushroom bruschetta instead. When queried with the waitress, we were told ' well it is mushrooms, which you ordered'. In fact, the bruschetta was our second choice but no less enjoyable and we didn't want to wait longer for a starter, but it would have been better if the waitress had apologised and offered us the original order. The waiter seems to have simply written 'mushrooms' on his order book and the kitchen staff incorrectly guessed what he meant ! Two of our party ordered the chocolate lemon tart for desert which was described as being served with ice cream. In fact, it was served with cream. Neither of these issues was a big deal, but attention to detail is all in the restaurant world.

We chose this restaurant for its extensive menu but also the thought of being able to dine and see Cambridge's Christmas lights. This proved a false prospectus as seating is in the basement!
Food was very good and reasonably priced. Service was fine too but I was disappointed they had no draft beer.

The dining experience was absolutely lovely! Excellent food, fast and friendly service and a pleasant and intimate atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

It felt quite warm down in the cellars but it is a nice atmosphere. They cater well for children. The house salad was a bit disappointing with a splodgy sauce over it (it was mostly lettuce and red onion) but the food was nice. It would be good if there was a set menu to make it more value for money as it was a bit too expensive for us to eat there too often.

Always a great meal at Don Pasquale, efficient and warm friendly service, and the best location (sitting outside watching the world go by). Great food, fair pricing, great experience.

People is nice. I like double express with ice cream.
But we are used to have it after meal instead served with main course at the same time. But it's ok if it is the general condition in UK.
