We occasionally rendezvous with family in Beckley, as it is the halfway point between our homes. On an earlier visit we had a positive experience here, and recently decided to return. A true test of a good experience is whether it can be consistently repeated...and in this case our experience was even better!
There were seven of us, so we made a reservation...very important for a Saturday night. We were seated promptly and our server, Moriah, took our drink orders. She returned quickly with the drinks and took our food orders. There is quite a good selection of traditional Italian food on the menu, and I suspect it's all delicious. A basket of sliced house bread with a seasoned topping arrived and was replenished once.
As is our norm, my wife and I shared an entree (Jumbo Shells Florentine), which comes with a side salad. Others ordered the baked ziti, spaghetti or the large antipasti from the appetizer menu. Salads were brought around and Moriah brought an extra salad bowl so my wife and I could easily share the salad.
Soon our entrees arrived. Usually we are provided an extra plate when sharing an entree and we split it at the table, but at Pasquale's, they have it figured out: our entree was split in the kitchen and each half-portion was baked in its own dish. This was all handled as if it is a normal procedure, and maybe it is, but we were amazed and pleased to see it served this way. Kudos to the staff! The half-portion size was plenty for each one of us, and we could actually have split that. Portions for everyone were large and leftovers were boxed, even though we were traveling, as the hotel was equipped with refrigerators and our family members had brought a cooler. (My wife and I each ate all of our half-portion!)
Moriah kept glasses filled and provided service that was attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious and the service was very good. I'm sure that we will return again to have another memorable experience!
