Our first time to dine in a restaurant since COVID and the host let us sit in our own room away from other guests . Felt so safe. That was so nice of them .

We were disappointed with our dinner this time at DIPescara. We have dined there before and always been happy with the food and service there. The Caesar salad was good, the crab cake good, but the fried calamari were disappointing...overdone and tough. My horseradish crusted whitefish was really disappointing, swimming in a big pool of tomato sauce which overwhelmed any flavor of the fish. This seemed to be a new presentation from how I had had that dish in the past. My friend ordered the same thing and was also very disappointed with it for the same reason. Our husbands ordered the twin 4oz lobster tails which they also found tough and disappointing. And then they overcharged us for the lobster dinners on the Bill, which we had to bring to their attention to get fixed. Although they kindly comped us dessert to make up for the disappointing food, overall we were disappointed in our experience. Sad as we used to like this restaurant a lot more.

So great to be back at Di Pescara for indoor dining... Food and service was fantastic as always. We had the Chilean Sea Bass with a Miso Glaze over Jasmine Rice that melts in your mouth and couldn't have been better, as well as the Orchard Salad and side of Asparagus which were great as always. Will be back soon...

The food and atmosphere were excellent. However, when I read my email the next day it said this reservation did not qualify for points. I was during the week and not on a holiday.
I don't know what happened.

Loved the booth in the bar, the fact that we were not only socially distanced from others but also plexiglass on both sides, and the food. The best part of our night was the service we received from the entire staff and especially our waiter Bobby. We’ll be back because of him!

We were so happy to have an opportunity to finally dine out! Every aspect of our dining experience was perfect. We sat in the bar area and had a wonderful server. The food was delicious and the peppermint ice cream with hot fudge was the perfect end.

The supper club menu is a great value. Portions are large enough to have leftovers for another meal. The tent is warm.

So upsetting. This was my first time sitting inside a restaurant after Covid. We sat out side two or three times this past summer and it was so nice....
This time not so much. The seating was good. Spaced apart perfectly. The service was just bad. And portion (for my dish) was much smaller than it was in the past. My salmon was small and the green beans were about half the potion size it used to be and on top of it, it was kinda cold like it’s been sitting out. So disappointing. We are NOT rushing back!!!

I had the chicken Parmesan and my wife had the chopped steak. Both were outstanding. The chopped steak was soft, very flavorful and too much for my wife to finish. The chicken Parmesan was more than enough for two people and it was done to perfection. It was the best I’ve ever had.

We liked the Lettuce restaurant week concept and menu. The "indoor" patio was an especially gratifying concept. We hope that the "indoor" patio will continue to be in use.

Menu wasn’t good a d the one thing we wanted on the menu they didn’t even have! If you’re a fish place, you should have shrimp, mussels, crab, clams, clam chowder on the menu. My friend got the sushi roll and it was no good. I got a salad that was $25! Not worth it. I won’t be going back. Very disappointed. I had a good dish there about 6 years ago a d it was good but no more. Menu bad and so expensive and doesn’t taste good.
