The food here is always consistently good here so we keep coming back. However, we were so disappointed with the lackluster service. Our waiter was disinterested at best and inattentive. We watched other servers around us, who engaged with their customers and did not leave them for long periods of time. For example, it was my husband's birthday. The waiter brought the birthday dessert, asked whose birthday it was (I had already told him when he asked as we were seated). He then dropped the dessert off and didn't even say Happy Birthday. After we were done with dessert, he then asked if we wanted coffee or anything else- (too late). He never smiled - seemed annoyed all night. We didn't complain at all; just had to ask for butter twice. I'd eat here again but not if we have another experience like this.

Hostess was very rude
Tried to seat us in bar
Never requested it...... asked for dining room was told would have to wait after we made a 7:30 reservation??
Said they had o many reservations
Why did they accept ours & I watched her she sat 2 groups right after us in the dining room ?? Are they more special then our reservation??
They shouldn’t accept reservations if they are over booked ??
Service was ok
Food was delicious!
Thank you hope this is shared with

Food and service were solid but was disappointed by the very minimal wine list, especially compared to other Lettuce restaurants. The ambiance and drink options were definitely catering to the aged clientele.

I have always enjoyed restaurant through the years. Our server was particularly terrific this visit. He had heard our table discuss the recent virus concerns and went out of his way to tell us the protective approach the restaurant had implemented. Hats off to the management and the Melman team for going the distance!

My wife and I went out to eat there and she ordered the shrimp risotto while I ordered the chopped steak with sauteed peppers and onions served over a bed of mashed potatoes. My wife loves risotto, it came in a tomatoes sauce and with about 4 shrimp. She ate the shrimp but could only force herself to eat half of her risotto. I was excited about digging to mine until I saw the plate. I ordered it cooked medium, when it was served I couldn't tell what I was looking at? It looked like a cow pie with sauteed onions on top. I proceeded to eat my steak and dig it out of the load of onions on the top I noticed that it looked more like a hamburger. I forced 2\3 of it down before the grease, oil, and butter overwhelmed me. The wine was great, desert was key lime pie. Which was good also.
I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone if they can't get a couple of simple dishes right.

Overpriced for basically average food at best. Portions are not large and items like potatoes, soup, or salad are all at additional cost. My wife had simple pasta (gnocchi with cream sauce), I had whitefish (which was pretty tasty and served with vegetables only)and I had a beer while she drank water. Our bill was $50 with tip. The service was fairly slow, especially considering it was a late lunch and the place was practically empty, and they were less than helpful regarding my wife's soy allergy, not sure if she could eat the bread or many menu items. Suffice it to say, that we will not be returning to Di Pescara.

For a lovely restaurant, the service was “ casual”. Attentive but unprofessional... the food was excellent but could have been hotter.
