    It was restaurant week so I decided to go that route. I had the chopped salad....excellent!! The whitefish was very very good, and certainly a generous serving size. For my last few bites, I tried the key lime pie....very good also.

    Our Salmon came cold but we waited so long we didn’t send it back. The salad was not fresh looking. Lots of brown lettuce.

    At Di Pescara, the food was great even though the portions were smaller, as expected, the service was great, it was a little noisy, as expected. Overall a great experience. We've been there before and will definitely be coming back.

    Came for Restaurant Week. In addition, we ordered the fried Calamari. Decided we wouldn’t order it again. The first time we had it it was delicious with fried peppers added. Yesterday it had unusual stuff like sausage. Disappointing! For restaurant week I had the Tuna and Salmon Poke—my friend had the WhiteFish. Both were good but my favorite there is salmon with green beans. This is a favorite restaurant for us.

    I was having dinner with a friend. We had an excellent server! We shared the chopped salad and she brought 2 plates with the salad and a serving spoon. We also shared the almond crusted whitefish and they split the dinner in the kitchen. It was delicious! The brussel sprouts that came with the fish were also excellent. I have been here many times and highly recommend it!

    My husbands birthday was ruined. Requested to have Happy Birthday written on his dessert. Waitress Cathy told us they were running behind for desserts and shrugged her shoulders and left. Never asked if we would like another drink my husbands drink was empty for the whole dinner. I had to ask the busboy for a coke. She rolled her eyes if we requested anything but to every other table it was all smiles. Last time I will ever go there. Do not recommend.

    Restaurant week menu seemed a little deceptive. Food quality was good, but the quantity of first course and dessert items was much smaller than if ordering those items a la carte, which is not made clear anywhere on the menu or when ordering. Seems structured more to favor the restaurant than the diner. I would simply order off the regular menu and skip the restaurant week “special” in the future.

    Been many times. The food was really tasty and good. Service was not on! We had to keep asking for water and refills on ice tea. Meals didn’t come out remotely at the same time. At one point, we got up and got a pitcher of water for ourselves. Not a normal night for this restaurant.

    Lower the stars because we really used to enjoy the restaurant a lot more than we do. Service was a little bit slow, but we were there later in the evening and not sure if that made a difference. Food was just OK. Not amazing di Pescara I was always a favorite… But I feel it’s gone a little bit downhill.

    For the cost of the dinner - I would expect ambiance - service - and comfort. None of that is at this restaurant and why spend 150$ for 2 without any of the things that are important to us.

    I chose to eat here because a friend said everything was delicious. I ordered crusted shrimp with a bed of angel hair pasta and spinach. The pasta was very good, but for the price of the meal a few extra shrimp would have been nice. Mainly, however, the shrimp was so encrusted I was not able to get that unique shrimp taste. Also, the shell was tough and it was difficult to extract the shrimp, which resulted in some waste. Server was charming and helpful, but also very busy serving a lot of other tables.
