Even with a reduced menu during the pandemic, Di Pescara remains one of the best restaurants around. It is a good place for celebrations as well as "just getting out of the house" days. One of our favorites.

Ordered Tuna Tartare app which was covered in wasabi and primarily avocado with a small layer of tuna, good quality, but wasabi overwhelmed and little tuna. Ordered grilled calamari, but again few calamari and lots of bitter arugula. The chicken was burnt and dried out on chicken salad. The bbq salmon was over cooked. They apologized and said kitchen was having an off night. Overall disappointing food experience sadly.

We were celebrating our anniversary and my wife's birthday, and the maitre'd and waitstaff were briefed (from our reservation data) and were receptive to the occasion. Though the restaurant was busy, our waiter was observant and helpful and provided answers to all of our questions about application of Lettuce points to the meal and accumulation to our account. Food was excellent.

Always a winner. Lunch at 1:30 is perfect for Covid-spread resistant and cautious diners. 4 of us had salads with blackened salmon. 4 out of 4 of us give everything 5 stars.

Pleasant surprise, the tables are well distanced. The servers were very nice, as always.
Food is great, we had the oven roasted whitefish (cauliflower needs roasted a bit longer). Ended with an awesome choc mousse dessert, large enough for 4 people (comes cut in 4 pieces).

My entree, tuna tartar was perfect. My husband cancelled his entree after he saw size of small salad. Sever said it had been cancelled but we received and payed for it. California rolls, $14 but not the point.

Had dinner in the bar area and there was only one waiter for the entire room. Service was quite slow and the dinner entree seemed a bit smaller than I had remembered.

The room was full and quite noisy, but there is no excuse for waiting and waiting for proper service which never happened.

If there is only one waiter available, then limit the number of tables occupied at any one time. The waiter was way overworked and just not able to offer anywhere close to proper service.

Good food, great service.
A little pricey, but what isn't now a days.
The 3% bogus surcharge is annoying, you need to remember to ask them to take it off in advance. If you want to raise your prices 3%, be honest about it. They also don't list the price of the recommended wine and it's awkward to ask sometimes

The Supper Club menu is a fabulous bargain. The orchard salad and whitefish almandine are my favorite, while my husband enjoyed Caesar salad and chicken parmigiana. Large portions mean we have take home for another meal.

My husband had the hamburger and I had the turkey burger. We both enjoyed our meals very much.

The turkey burger here is one of the best I have ever eaten, except for my husbands!

Di Pescara's turkey burger is thick and juicy, not like the flat, tasteless ones you get elsewhere. I ordered a vegetable side of roasted brussel sprouts (for $1.50 extra) which was so large I couldn't finish it; delicious! I topped it off with a delicious cup of coffee and I was delighted!

We don't live that close to this restaurant but for the food, I would drive the distance. Totally enjoyed it and our server went out of her way to accommodate us.

I’m so tired of unconscious waiters. Check your reservation when your people are dining with you, see if there’s a special occasion at the table. Listen to what your guests ask for. plates of lemons, an extra napkin. listen that’s your job. I want a waiter to see if my food is okay, it gets dropped by a runner and the server is nowhere. Train your servers!

Service was great. Salad and soup excellent. My entree, Chicken Giardiniera, which I’ve had multiple times before, not so much. Tasted like it had been partially made in advance then finished upon order. Shared this with floor manager who told me he appreciated the feedback and everything was made to order. Think acknowledging that I had an off experience and apologizing for it would also have been appropriate. Not looking for anything monetary, just acknowledgment that restaurant owned a subpar delivery.
