Pasquini's has gone through many changes since Tony Pasquini opened the first restaurant at 1310 South Broadway 25 years ago. While his sister, Melinda Pasquini, took over the original spot in 2004, Tony went on to open more restaurants and also franchise other efforts. There have been some bumps along the way, though, and he wound up pulling Pasquini's back from any franchisees. After opening a restaurant in Cherry Creek that's now called Tony P's, he's finishing a new Pasquini's on 17th Avenue, while Melinda is giving the original Pasquini's a whole new look.

But that may not be all it needs.

Says DaveBarnes:

Hopefully, she will teach her waiters how to serve wine.

The last time I ordered white wine at Pasquini's it was initially served at 80°F.

I was horrified. The waitress said: "they will not teach us how to serve wine".

What's been your experience at Pasquini's? Any Pasquini's outlet?
