Diner Reviews
  • "Good location and better than most fare. The restaurant is busy and the staff tired as well as the decor. Location needs a face lift due to heavy customer use and the staff need more peep in their step. Could be a great if they took the time to clear, paint, and pick up the silverware off the ramp walk way."

  • "Lunchtime offers breakfast foods (omelettes, fritattas) or traditional choices. I opted for a fritatta and my friend had a salad. We were both very satisfied with our choices. No room for dessert. Plenty of iced tea refills."

  • "The dinner was as good as I expected. Enjoy having a light & fun dinner during the week that doesn't disappoint. :)"

  • "It's simply always good! The quality of the food is excellent and the preparation is consistent. It truly is a neighborhood gem. I just wish the noise level were quieter. Charlie"

  • "My lunch date ordered a salad with grilled shrimp. The shrimp were unable to be removed from the skewer; the skewer needs to be oiled!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We had an early reservation and we were seated right away. The salads were delicious including the heirloom tomato salad that was on special. I usually order the chopped salad which is always a winner. The halibut and whitefish entrees were both excellent. The sushi was great too. Due to past experiences, I recommend coming to this restaurant early as it can get quite noisy and crowded during peak times."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "As Lettuce Entertain You restaurants go, this is a fairly good, fairly consistent one. Perhaps the fault is not in the food, but in the service. Whereas the 'bus guy' was attentive, the female wait person, Susie, was most often absent and certainly disengaged. She seemed to care little about our dining experience. She took the order and that was pretty much her contribution. The food, filet and cedar planked whitefish, were both good, but not excellent."

  • "We had lunch there and enjoyed it. They had an olive oil that was delightfully fruity and it was from California! Great salad combos, had a side order of french fries that were fantastically crispy. Great beet salads. Definitely recommend it for lunch."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food was great! It is a little loud in there. We each had a different entree and we both enjoyed it!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "One of the things that I find so impressive with Di Pescara is the quality of the service. The wait staff is always friendly, knowledgable, and attentive without being hovering. This visit was no exception. Jennifer did a wonderful job and our meal was enhanced because of her excellent service. And the food was absolutely delicious. Everyone in the party ordered a Di Pescara "signature dish" and we were all extremely pleased."

  • "I went with my grandmother after an early evening Ravinia CSO concert, and we both had the lazy man's lobster (taken out of the shell for you). It was a pretty good deal, quite yummy, if perhaps a tad scant on the meat. Di Pescara is always a lovely treat."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We have been here twice, both times for our anniversary & have had a great experience each time. The food is delicious. I had the crab cakes one time & sushi the 2nd time & I was not disappointed. They do treat their customers well here!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We tried to make a later time reservation, but was told they had nothing available after 2:30, but the restaurant was mostly empty during our entire meal and was still mostly empty when we left about 4 PM. The staff was busy watching the World Cup and was not very attentive. The food was very good."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "the one good thing about this resturant is that it is in the shopping center, and you can leave and shop while waiting for a reservation."

  • "This restaurant is becoming one of my favorite places to frequent. People are always friendly and the foot is always great!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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)."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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."
