Meet the owner

Throughout the eighties, life was very busy for Pasquale Barile – he had a wife, three children, four restaurants and 140 employees. But he had just one regret: none of the restaurants bore his name. That changed in 1993. He split amicably with his business partners and kept one of the four locations – the one on Macleod Trail.

He did a complete renovation of the space, working day and night alongside his contractors. He was out to create, “A new era, a new thing, a new face on Macleod Trail. I never looked back." Twelve days later, he put up the sign he had wanted to put up his whole life. It read Pasquales on Macleod.

Had a great time

This was not my first time but for my Mom's 60th Birthday I thought it would be a great place to take the family. Everyone loved the food and we all had a great time.

We love Pasquales! My Husband and I having been going there for years and have never been disappointed. Sometimes we take friends and they always rave about how delicious the food is. The service is wonderful and the atmosphere is always so warm and friendly. Isabel knows are names and always makes sure she saves us a booth. Definitely a 10 out-of 10. Brenda and Craig Fraser

Eating out is not just about eating - it is about connecting with one another over good food. So nice to get consistent food quality and service in a relatively quiet setting. If we want Italian we choose Pasquales first (we live out of town). The service is always top notch as is the food. My wife is hearing impaired and we appreciate the ambiance that mutes (rather than amplifies) the sound level so that we can enjoy our conversation without shouting. I would still recommend the background music emphasize Italy rather than other genres. The volume is about right. Highly recommend.

This has been a family favorite for years, because of the food and quiet atmosphere. My friend and I have now made Pasquales our traditional birthday dinner place. We typically have a lot to catch up on and we know we can do that comfortably, without being rushed, while the staff is still being attentive.

This was a Mother's Day dinner, the server did not say happy Mother's Day, she was very unfriendly. No specials for that night nor even a flower given. Very disappointed
