About Franchise

We are a place where our guests feel comfortable, welcome, and at home.

We are dinner around a neighborhood kitchen table.

When our executive restaurateurs and developers set out to create a fast-casual concept that would bring together years of experience in a wide range of Italian restaurants, from casual to fine dining, Squisito Pizza and Pasta was born.

Squisito® has over 30 years of experience in successfully serving up classic, Italian dishes made with the finest, Italian ingredients. With the combination of our hand-picked tomatoes from the fields of California, our authentic family recipes for our sauces, and the brand-quality supremacy of Grande Cheese, we promise the best taste experience to each and every guest in every franchise.

Why Squisito®?

Working with each franchise location as a TEAM, we know we can achieve this goal. It won’t take you long to learn why we are so different then other Italian restaurants—but here are a few of the key reasons why we have built a concept that will thrive in any neighborhood and why Squisito® is a great opportunity for someone who wants the best!

Testimonials

This place should be full every night to be honest.

We come here once a month or more. There's a lot of choice in Münster but this is a brilliant ltalian just out of town and well worth the trip. We always have one of the specials.
Do Not Miss the Specials Board! Unlike restaurants that just use the specials to use stuff up Squisito seem to always have too many luscious options that are well thought, simple and beautifully cooked.

Pros:
The pasta is fresh and always beautifully cooked.
Pizza is a good size and lovely and crispy
Great va...lue

Cons:
None really. Great portions so we've over ordered a couple of times.

This place should be full every night to be honest.

We will definitely be back sooner rather!!

My husband and I recently moved to Ashburn and stumbled upon this place when dropping off a package at a nearby UPS. We are SO glad we ended up here! Food was phenomenal, best garlic twists we have ever had. Service was friendly and fast. My mac and cheese reheated well the next day and tasted just as fresh as when it came to me right out of the kitchen. Prices are fair for the serving sizes you get. We will definitely be back sooner rather!!

The staff was very polite and the restaurant had an overall Please atmosphere.

Accidentally found this restaurant one day and decided to give it a try. It's located on the corner end of a shopping strip so it's not readily noticeable. I walked passed the window and saw other customers eating pizza and my first thought was that the pizza looked really dry and flavorless.
But I noticed decent Yelp review so I gave it a try. We ordered mozzarella sticks and a large pepperoni and pineapple pizza. A bit of a language barrier with the waitress but we were able to point out what... we wanted so not a big deal. The mozzarella sticks came out pretty quickly, but I was disappointed because there was not a lot of mozzarella in the stick...What cheese was there was lacking in flavor. The pizza came out in very good time. My initial assessment of the pizza on the window was partly wrong. It was definitely not dry, but lacking in flavor. It wasn't horrible pizza, just nothing to warrant any special trips to try it again. The staff was very polite and the restaurant had an overall Please atmosphere. Probably won't be back to visit anytime soon. Show all

Very friendly service, good food, family friendly

Went for early Sunday dinner with 4 adults and 2 kids. They don't have liquor license yet but offer a $5 cork fee so we brought our own bottle which they opened and they had glasses.

We ordered garlic knots (delicious and large portion), tomato tortilla soup (they forgot to bring it,then brought wrong soup, but quickly replaced with the right soup and packed up the other to take home), chicken portabello with veggies (delicious), fettuccini alfredo with seafood and salad (huge portion, delic...ious), salmon pasta dish and salad (delish), Mediterranean pasta and salad (huge and delicious) and a cheese calzone - HUGE. We had a TON of left over for 4 more lunches. Restaurant was clean and very family friendly. We've eaten in and carried out a number of times and are always impressed. Prices are great for the portions and quality. Show all

Delicious!!

My husband and I traveled 4 hours to MD and wanted a quick bite to eat for dinner. We wanted to take it back to our hotel room. This was one of the recommendations of our hotel front desk. We were very pleased! The place is neat and clean and you could tell, it is a favorite of the locals. Many people were eating in, but also picking up orders 'to go'. We got a flatbread margarita pizza for about $12, plus an order of fried calamari for $7---but then I could not resist their gelato! I bought som...e of that and also took it back to our room. Me, who won't pay more than $2.50 for a half gallon of ice cream at home, paid over $4 for a small cup--but it was freshly made by them that morning! I had a sample taste and I was sold! Vanilla with strawberries cream!! YUM!! So smooth and wonderful! Anyway, the calami was also a delight--nicely lightly fried and not full of grease. The pizza had a wonderful thin flatbread crust and I really enjoyed it. I would recommend going back here to try more of their dishes! Show all
