Food is exceptional.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter requesting a tableAfter requesting a table "not near the entrance" that is what we were assigned-a table right near the entrance. So either our request was not read or they did not care enough to honor it. In any event, that eliminated any chance of "outstanding experience."
Despite that hiccup, the service was very pleasant, enthusiastic, and competent.
The food was spotty. Meatballs were bland (unanimous opinion of all 4 at our table) and not exciting. The chicken (ordered by 2/4 at the table) was not very tender (per their report). On the other hand, the pasta in both my entree ( papardelle) and side (spaghetti) was very fresh and perfectly al dente. The tiramisu was excellent.
Overall, mixed but worth another visit for the p4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointing neighborhood gemI did enjoy my grilled seafood but the rest of our dishes were disappointing. The servers were attentive and friendly and the room was attractive and comfortable.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA WONDERFUL Italian OpenTable FindLast night was our first time here. Asked my wife to find a place using OpenTable and sure glad she found this one. To begin they brought us bread with a dish of pesto in olive oil and shaved parmesan cheese. It was great. We each had the house salad; a nice mix of bitter greens, olives, onions, etc. I had the Spaghetti Pescatore, a LARGE spaghetti dish with a white wine sauce and crab, mussels, clams and shrimp. Wife had the ravioli special of the day. Both had desert. She had tiramisu and i had a ricotta cheesecake. Decaf cappuccino to end it out. Delicious.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMPescatore is a gem in thePescatore is a gem in the Bala Cynwyd neighborhood. I like that you can Bring Your Own wine. I had Chilean sea bass. My dining partner had Branzino.
Both were fish specials. We shared a caesar salad flatbread for an appetizer. Everything was delicious. I would definitely go back. It's a lovely place, and quiet for talking.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAn outstanding neighborhoodAn outstanding neighborhood restaurant that could hold its own in

I had the best scallops I think I've ever had. Our waitress was very attentive. She had a long list of specials down to a "t." Everyone was quite friendly; the owner's mother came over to check that we were enjoying our meal and gave us some background on the restaurant. Although the room was quite busy, the noise level was still low enough for the 4 of us to converse easily. Overall, the ambiance was quite pleasant and we will certainly be going back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Itlalian RestaurantWe were here for Valentine's Day, and everything couldn't have been nicer.

The regular menu prices are reasonable & fair, however, be aware that the "specials" are MUCH higher than you'd expect judging from the menu p[rices, about $10 - $20 HIGHER.. They do not mention the prices of the specials so either ask or be surprised... we were... now we know, we have been back since(this time) & knew the deal so it was much more reasonable price wise.. large portions as well, so that's good!
