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.

One of the best meals I've had in my life. Everything was delicious, and served at the correct temp. The waiter was excellent as well. It will definitely be a restaurant we continue to visit when we are in the area.

My husband and I love this place and book frequently on Friday nights for their supper club menu. We decided to "splurge" on Valentines Day and try one of their specials. My husband had the bbq ginger salmon and I had the miso glazed seabass. They were both absolutely delicious! Of course we still love their Caesar salad and key lime pie. Our server was Raul, and he was really nice and helpful telling us all about the specials. The front desk people are also always very nice. We had a wonderful Valentines dinner!

Had a Valentine's day lunch here. Delicious filet cooked perfectly. Also, my husband had the crab cake sandwich. I did not get this as they put green & red peppers in the crab cake. WHY DO RESTAURANTS to do this? Crab is such a delicate flavor and peppers just overwhelm it. One of my pet peeves.

Ever since DiPescara opened, it has been our favored go-to restaurant when my wife and I celebrate special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. Great food, great service -- and always some food to take home to savor another day.

The space is loud, making it difficult for conversation. The waiter we had, while very professional, seemed to be rushing us through our meal. Although the food is still very good, the menu is more limited. The grilled artichoke appetizer and the almond crusted whitefish are delicious. We won't rush back.

the server was incredibly inattentive...almost seemed like he may have been stoned. i had ordered a piece of fish with a side of spinach. the spinach was very salty. i asked if i could get another side of spinach..he then took my whole plate of food away and said he needed to "show chef" the issue. show chef my salty food? could i not have kept hte fish and just got a new plate of spinach? they forgot my husbands soup. brought him sushi but not soy sauce or chopsticks. we have been here before and had good experiences but if this had been our first time we would not be returning.

Di Pescara is one of my favorite restaurants. Great food and lots of menu choices.
Lately on Friday nights after work, we've been enjoying their supper club menu if seated before 5:15 pm. Great place to unwind and start the weekend!

The meal from beginning to end was excellent! Our waiter Marco was prompt & efficient!
Great options on the menu! We had the Almond Crusted Whitefish. Great portions! The chopped salad was amazing!
The key lime pie was delicious although a little small on that portion. The noise level was very high in the restaurant when we were seated but it did die down after awhile. Great pricing value! We will definitely come here for restaurant week & other occasions again.

We always enjoy our meals at Di Pescara. The servers are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Water glasses are filled regularly. The bread is so delicious. I always opt for the roasted salmon and it’s consistently good. The chopped salad is excellent to split or as a main dish. Di Pescara is one of our top restaurants on the North Shore.

Went for restaurant week and the food and service was excellent. The only thing I would have asked is that they mention the desert would be very small with the restaurant week menu.

The food is always good at DiPescara. The location is very convenient. I made the reservation through open table hoping to get 100 points which I did not, nor was I able to use my bonus certificates from Lettuce Entertain You restaurant because it was a Saturday night and I didn’t know you couldn’t use it on a Saturday.

Enjoyed a delicious meal tonight at DiPescara. The quality of the food is always superb. I enjoyed the supper club menus for a deeply discounted cost. Clam chowder was thick and creamy with lots of clams and a few potatoes. My almond crusted whitefish was crisp and hot with a lemon butter sauce. The dinner even n included a small portion of their famous peppermint ic cream with hot fudge! My husband usually orders the seafood trio, which is always great!

A convenient place to dine when you're at or near the mall. I ordered beef (pot roast) at this fish restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. We sat with empty water glasses throughout the meal -- although there were aspects of the service that were truly excellent. This was the second time I have eaten at this restaurant. On both occasions, the entrees were a bit on the salty side. One of my friends returned her entree for this reason. My entree was salty, but not to the point where I could not enjoy it.
