    I HAVE EATEN THERE MANY TIMES WHEN I COME TO NYC. THIS LAST TIME WAS AWFUL. THE MENU HAD CHANGED AND THEY TOOK OFF FETTUCCINE ALFREDO(THE REAL Deal) WHICH WAS GREAT. OUR WAITER ASSURED US THEY COULD STILL MAKE IT.. THE DISH THAT CAME WAS NOT A THING LIKE IT USED TO BE. THE NOODLES WERE ALL STUCK TOGETHER, THERE WAS NO SAUCE, IT WAS VERY DRY AND NO FLAVOR. WE ASKED IT THEY HAD A NEW CHEF OR NEW OWNER BUT THEY ASSURED US IT WAS THE SAME. DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED BUT WE WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. EVEN THE CHEESECAKE WAS NOT AS GOOD AS IT USED TO BE,. VERY DISSAPOINTING

    I enjoyed myself at Pescatore. I had dinner with a couple girlfriends. The appetizers and pasta bolongnese were fantastic. The chicken parmesan were okay. Overall, it was a nice meal at a nice restaurant. Only downside... Some of the customers are on the older side and had asked us to be quieter. The manager asked us if we were okay and we decided to move to another table.

    Been dining here for years. A wonderful spot in Beekman area. Solid italian fare. Great affordable brunch, including one cocktail and yummy coffee. I think it was recently renovated inside, a little more spare looking than I remember... But that doesn't change the good food and attentive service. Never feel rushed here, which is extremely important to me.

    Gnocchi with bolognese sauce and goat's cheese topping special was a feast for the senses. Service was attentive and the wines by the glass were good. Risotto main was fine, but I have yet to find a good risotto in NYC, always an overcooked mush. Meal made for a great ending to a a long tough week.

    This is a long overdue review. My wife and I have been coming to this restaurant for years. From Charles to Debbie, to the rest of the staff, they are always welcoming, friendly and professional. We live around the block, yet Pescatore is a home away from home.. We had the cabonara pasta the other night and it was the best I have ever had. Truly a neighborhood gem.

    Service was very disjointed. Food was good but not memorable. When I placed my order with a glass of wine, the waitress placed the order and returned with my glass of wine. I asked her if I could change my mind on the last order placed when she said she would have to check with the kitchen. She came back and said they had already started on my order and it could not be changed. That worried me because it was pasta carbonnara and I know how it is prepared. By the end of the meal I had a different wait person and the restaurant was just going crazy.

    This is a very nice and reasonable neighborhood Italian food restaurant. We were a party of three and we all enjoyed our meals. We were visiting the city and have added this dining location to our must return list. I will be recommending it to others visiting New York. Our initial greeting was warm and I thought the service and food was excellent.

    The food was delicious and my favorite part of the menu was that all of the pasta dishes can be ordered in half portions which allow you to try more than one of their delicious offerings if you so choose. The half portions are still generous sizes so you will definitely get a tasre for the flavor of each wonderful dish. My best friend and I had a great meal here and would definitely go back.

    Pescatore just gets better and better. Staff who are friendly and very helpful, a first rate menu and one of the best priced wine lists (with some real gems). Do try the special of the day (normally a great fish dish and also home made ravioli); the beeet salad is a terrific appetiser. I visited for lunch this week with a couple of colleagues and they thought it a great place too. Special thanks to Charles, the owner. He has a great restaurant but he does not rest on his laurels; always looking to do that little bit more. Great atmosphere, great food and great prices!! Highly recommended.

    I was pleasantly surprised and how good - and how well-priced - the food here was. The half dishes of pasta are perfect, and allow you the chance to sample many things without breaking the bank. Every single thing that my group got was good, and the half priced glasses of wine until 7pm were just the cherry on top. Great for groups, great for people who want to split, and great for people who want to try a little bit of everything.

    Prices struck me as a good value for NYC, and the quality was quite good too. Three Appetizers for a set price presents a hard choice, so many sounded great. We went with a tartare, a calamari and a citrus-fennel sardine to explore the range. All very fresh and authentic. Pasta appears house-made, tender, irregular and delicious. Lobster and grappa sauce looked very nice. Entree of veal shoulder pulled apart easily, over creamy polenta. Very good food, casual ambiance.

    Salad and entrees were very good. All in our party of six enjoyed their meals. Service was excellent. Deserts were not ordered so I cannot comment but the choices were good. Atmosphere casual and prices were relatively inexpensive. I would go back and eat at Pescatore's again. You don't need to go the village for good food. This place was off the beaten tourist path which made it a better dining experience for me. From bar to dining room all in my party enjoyed the experience.
