Restaurant description

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.

    Still excellent after all these years. Staff are really friendly and helpful and know all about the dishes. Lovely food and still the best Tiramisu in town.

    One of my worst experiences ever, but not really because of the restaurant. The food was alright, quite basic pizzas. The loud environment didn’t really help with the argument we were in. However the staff was helpful by checking on us several times and suggesting to move to a different place. In the end, dinner had to be cut short when my wife suddenly walked out of the restaurant…

    We sat in the lower level in a small intimate room. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was even better. My salmon was perfectly prepared on fettuccine and my wife’s spaghetti bolognese was wonderful.
