Pasquale’s (East Aurora)

242 Main Street

East Aurora, New York

It was another weekend excursion and we were off to Arcade for a ride on the Arcade and Attica Railroad. If you haven’t experienced this nostalgic journey back in time, we suggest you give a whirl. On our way home we were hungry and ventured from Arcade up to East Aurora. We were entertaining a couple of tweens for the day and were looking for something reasonably priced and family friendly. Pasquale’s on Main Street seemed to fit the bill.

Italian Wedding Soup was the “Soup of the Day” and the starter for Ms. Diner who seemed to enjoy it. Mr. Diner equally enjoyed his salad, topped with balsamic vinaigrette with crumbly blue cheese. For the kids, it was the ever dependable Spaghetti with Meatballs for one and Fettuccine Alfredo for the other. Ms. Diner brought a bit less of an appetite than usual, so she sampled a taste from each of the youngster’s plates. Mr. Diner ordered the Fruitti Di Mare with an abundance of scallops, shrimp, mussels and crab, sautéed with bell peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms in a garlic wine sauce served on a bed of angel hair pasta. This dish was quite flavorful and enjoyable once the delicious wine sauce mixed thoroughly with the generous bed of angel hair pasta. While our servers earned good marks for courtesy, friendliness and hustle, there were several people waiting on our table at once, which made the dining experience a bit chaotic. We weren’t quite sure who our waitress was, our sodas came without ice and our entrees were served while we were halfway through with the soups and salads, which created a bit of a train wreck at the table.

Despite the chaos, all in all Pasquale’s served up a satisfying meal, in a family atmosphere, at a good price. If you are looking for value, aren’t picky about protocol and simply want a tasty meal with no frills and a friendly wait staff, Pasquale’s is the place.
