Diner Reviews
  • "De Pescara is always a treat. I tried the orchard salad and it was delicious."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Our service was fantastic - beverages were refilled consistently and sufficient attention was given during the meal that we feel looked after but not overwhelmed. Good knowledge of the menu. Food, as usual, was delicious. And surprisingly, the noise level was low which made for very easy conversation!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The decor is so pretty and the place has potential, but the layout and atmosphere has the intimacy of a cafeteria. It is loud, close and should post warnings for those sensitive to claustrophobia. The food was well done and the service charming, but nothing would entice me to put myself in that room, again (shudder)."

  • "I have been to DiPescara before but never had this sandwich. It was delicious! And the cherry pie with ice cream was also great!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "I can't believe this place has been around for 8 years and I haven't found it. Great menu - very unique offerings and the service was stellar."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I have been there many times but this time we could not hear our selves, the waitress was rushing us"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Had no idea what to expect. Place is attached to a mall which sometimes means that it doesn't haver to try as hard. This is not that place. Everything we had was great. The lobster was fresh, the salads large and tasty, and the dessert bites perfectly sized and very good. I loved the cheesecake. If you like fresh seafood and large salads this place is for you. The price points are low enough that there is a lot of value on the menu as well."

  • "Good food. Good service. Was in the bar so noise level was tolerable."

  • "Will always be a go to restaurant in the Northern suburbs"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Di Pescara is conveniently located on the north side of Northbrook Court with easy access from outside. The restaurant is pleasant with a nice bar and two seating areas. I can say the salads my friend and I had at lunch were both excellent and beautifully presented. I have been here before though it has been many years but I would not hesitate to return soon."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Had reservation to meet a colleague for lunch. May well not have. Place was mobbed. People who came in after without reservation us were seated before usWas offered seating in bar area. Was dark and noisey and not the experience I was wanting."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "We have dined here many times. Consistently delicious food! Always good service."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Our group of 6 was there for a birthday celebration and it was a perfect choise. Food was good and the restaurant provided a dessert for the birthday girl which was delicious. I'm sure we will return shortly."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Wonderful food and presentation. Terrific wine list."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The wait person, Randy, was outstanding- kind, thoughtful, anticipated our wants, attentive. That is what made the evening really wonderful."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Disappointed in my salmon. While the flavor was good and it was fully cooked, it was still cool even after I sent it back to the kitchen to be reheated."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Like many restaurants, this one also seems to be on a downward slide. In the past, we have always enjoyed our meals at this restaurant. My husband ordered a talapia dish which he described as "foul" tasting. My scallop dinner was very tasty but there were very few scallops and the dish was not exactly prepared as described on the menu. Because of my husband's experience with his meal, it is unlikely that we will be returning to this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "As always, delicious food and quality service - a delicious salmon and wonderful beet salad and generous portions and reasonable price."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The sushi was great but my veal was cooked to hard and the garlic spinach left a little to be desired. My date's salmon was good but didn't go well with the cream corn that it was served over."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Service was ok. My tea was only refilled once and my water wasn't. Usually the waiter or bus boys from other restaurants are more attentive. I hate to keep asking."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Excellent food served by quality staff with the little things done well (warm plates for entrees). Another Lettuce Entertain You venue, which are very well run restaurants."

  • "service was excellent, food was out standing ,it was a great place to spend time with my family for fathers day"

  • "Made a reservation on opentable for an anniversary dinner with my wife. Our food was terrific, our service was good. The place is incredibly loud and busy, but we enjoyed our meal."

  • "Would have loved soft shell crabs but they ran out at lunch. However, the Cooper River Salmon was excellent and reasonably priced for such a delicacy."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "For its prime location this restaurant feels very tired and in need if a puck me up. The menu is just fair and it has zilch aodphere. Very dark and dreary even after minor renovation. "
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "The food was decent but not great, especially for the price. I had the lobster roll and I would never order it again. The lobster was chewy and the sauce used was not that good $18.95 was way overpriced for it too. I have had the scallops there before and they were really good and I would probably order them again, but once again, for the quantity they were overpriced too($29). Their chocolate mousse cake was pretty good but a little on the sweet side, my kids enjoy the kids meal and the thin fries."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "We got there 1 hour early and were readily seated. The waitress seemed to be pushing the appetizers and or wine or drinks. Once we ordered the food came quickly and was good. Getting the waitresses attention after the food was delivered was problematic but she did get what we asked for in addition to our entrees. Desert was larger than I expected. There were 1 bite and 2 bite selections which were which were too large for their heading but otherwise good. Valet parking wasn't necessary as the restaurant was in a large shopping center with tons of parking (unless you're eating lunch there). The restaurant was in general good and the food was well prepared. I would go again."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "When we got there, the maître d' was not friendly. The women tending bar were not friendly. The person who got us for the table was not friendly. The waiter was good. The food was good. The beer was good. The dessert was good. The house wine not so good. It was very noisy. A little hard to carry on a conversation. The decor was nice"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "It's a busy noisy place, but Di Pescara always delivers excellent food with excellent service."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Solid place been there many times, but last two,times I was there , waiter was the same and just "off". Ordered ceased salad light dressing, first time comes out with no dressing, so,I send it back and it comes out fine. Next time there same order, this time way over dressed...I don't say anything cuz the waiter will just mess it up. By the way do we really need to be interrupted to ask if we want our waters re filled? Just refill it you bozo. I think they have been off their game lately"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Love this place for both dinner and lunch--always good food and service. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Either the kitchen was very backed up (6pm on a Monday night) or our waiter was very slow. I ordered the orchard salad and I received enough lettuce to feed a bunny family. However the apples and cherries were few and far between. I didn't see anything else in that salad. I have had it before and it was amazing. Maybe they ran out of ingredients? My husband ordered the breaded chicken and he received it with a few mushrooms. Really!!! A scoop of rice would have made the presentation nicer and the customer happier. On a happier note, the gluten-free bun was delicious."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "DiPescara is all about seafood, but I've come to love their hamburgers as a quick pre-movie dinner at Northbrook court. More upscale decor and presentation than Charlie Beinlich's, and incredibly convenient to the AMC theaters. Another great pre-movie dinner is a bowl of their excellent clam chowder and a Caesar salad."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "This was my first time trying this restaurant. I picked it based upon the reviews and because it was within walking distance to the AMC Theatres in Northbrook. Upon arrival, we were rushed to the bar area and seated there. I don't think the person who escorted us even heard me say that I had reservation through Open Table. I then asked the bartender if this was the only seating area since I was not familiar with the restaurant. He said the restaurant seating was on the other side. I walked over and asked to be seated at the restaurant area. Better customer service needed."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "It would take me more characters than allowed to fully explain what happened, but let me summarize it by saying it began with poor service because the wait person was stressed, the noise level in the restaurant was way too energetic, and it turns out they pre-prepare what is supposed to be fresh seafood - in my case we ordered sautéed soft shell crabs after the waitress told us we could have them prepared that way, only to have the manager tell us all the crabs were pre-prepared with corn meal crumbs. We decided to leave. Very disappointed."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We always enjoy eating here. The food is always good and a variety of selections. The waitress was very attentive and pleasant. We definitly will return in the near future."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "DiPescara has grown to be a local, reliable, consistently good fixture on the North Shore. It's convenient, well managed, understandably popular and the food, ambiance and service are outstanding. Friendly wait staff make the dining experience memorable. Noise level can be challenging, but the staff will accommodate seating requests to avoid the din. The food is well prepared and delicious, and the menu provides a good, well rounded selection for any discerning palate. From a casual dinner for two, to a banquet if a hundred, the consistency of this restaurant is unmatched. We love it, and have returned on numerous occasions, and will continue to do so. "
