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.

A family-run favourite established in 1973, Don Pasquale offers a fine dining twist on Italian cuisine. Immersed in the hubbub of the market square, guests can enjoy Mediterranean-style dining out on the cobbles during summer.

Famous for their pizzas, Don Pasquale uses premium Italian flour to make its dough, and stonebakes its thin and chewy bases to 400 degrees. 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.

    I love Don Pasquale and have had many brilliant dining experiences. This experience was a little disappointing. The staff seemed distracted and a little unorganised and one of the waitresses took away the plates from myself, my brother and my father before my mother had finished eating. This made my mother feel like she was slow and keeping us held up.
    The food was amazing as always though, and the decorations and atmosphere in the restaurant were as wonderful as ever.

    The restaurant was quite empty when we arrived, but many more tables were filled by the time we left. The service was quite good, and the food "typically" Italian. We paid at the till near the door when we were left, but were a little surprised that we did not receive an itemised bill. It was, therefore, difficult to check the amount we were asked to pay.

    We had a very pleasant pre-theatre dinner at Don Pasquale's. The food was good and reasonable value for money. We were seated downstairs, which was really nice, but found there needed to be more lighting on our (the) table/s which did not have a wall light nearby. We did ask the waiter who served us if he could light our table lamp but he obviously forgot...he seemed to be a little over worked, the waitress who served our food was much more relaxed and seemed to have more time to engage with us. This is not a criticism of either....more for the restaurant to note....but all in all we were quite satisfied, although we did find the HUGE profiteroles (the largest we have EVER seen!!!!!), disappointing, as they were quite they were not really enjoyed. The tiramisu was delicious and a definite recommendation!! We found the menu to be quite comprehensive although DP, any chance you could put more fish and chicken dishes on your menu.....please??? Thank you!

    The pizza was unfortunately underwhelming: it was slightly different to the previous time I was there. The vongole dish was very good however and I liked the service by a very friendly - and honest - waitress.
