    Probably our worst experience at Di Pescara. Soup was delivered with our salads; entrees were delivered before we had finished our salads. Both entrees: almond crusted white fish and almond crusted white fish; were over-cooked with mediocre flavor. Very disappointing.

    •Food was OK – nothing special for the price. •Server’s name was Pedro R. Service was poor. Asked for extra lemon with our iced tea and we each received one small lemon slice. Asked for butter with our bread in addition to the olive oil, received two pats of butter for two people. •Our server did not check on us throughout the meal and was only friendly when he brought the check.

    Seems like margins are just getting better and better for this and other restaurants. Six small to medium size shrimp and a “handful@ amount of pasta which I assume might be about a buck in food costs for about $30. Taste was okay.

    Fabian was our waiter and he did an outstanding service to the 3 of us. The only complaint is that we were seated right by the kitchen entrance. This made it very noisy and hard to hear each other.

    Brought my mother here for her birthday. You always want a good experience for a celebration but that wasn’t the case. With staggered arrivals we got our cocktails right away, when the others joined it was 20 minutes before they got theirs. We placed our order when the cocktails arrived and ordered a bottle of wine with the order. The salads arrived right away and then, nothing. No wine, no food. Another half hour passed and the front of the house staff delivered our entrees. I told him we were waiting on our wine,he brought it out and graciously comped us for the bottle. The food was very good. We had trout, whitefish, halibut and a burger. The restaurant emptied and the service picked up again after the meal. A little too late. I know the bar was understaffed and obviously the kitchen. While the food was good I won’t be returning. Was surprised at the end of the meal that this is a lettuce entertain you restaurant. Never had such bad service at their restaurants.

    I had a girls day out with Mom, my niece, and great niece from Minnesota, and everyone enjoyed their lunch!! My seven-year-old great niece loved her chicken tenders, and all of us enjoyed our salads, ranging from the Seafood Salad to the Chopped Salad and Mediterranean Salad!! The last two even had a piece of salmon, that was cooked perfectly.

    I was disappointed that i had to create a meal that was regularly on the menu previously. I had to have the white fish with parmesan crust and the fish was quite dry. In the past they always had haddock or halibut which is more moist. I’m by also having g a shower in the next few months and found out that they no longer offer a vegetable quiche. The menu is really getting very minimal.

    My experience was mixed. The food was very good but service was lacking. Outdoor seating was adequate, well shaded from the sun. Waiter made a mistake right off the bat, giving us an outdated menu, for which she apologized and quickly corrected. Bread arrived quickly but that was about all that was quick. I'm convinced the restaurant has too many tables for the small wait staff. I was also surprised that a $35 entree didn't come with a side salad or cup of soup. I might Go again but not for a while.
