I enjoyed Di Pescara however for dinner the lighting could be a bit more dim, I sat under what felt like a SPOTLIGHT that glared in my eyes the whole time, very uncomfortable!
The food was excellent and our waitress was very good!

We stopped at Di Pescara and they were packed with people. My husband has terminal Cancer and is afraid when it’s so busy. He gets sick very easily due to no immune system. We decided to go to Di Pescara sister restaurant Saranello’s. My husband had the Whitefish with Brussels Sprouts and I had the Chicken Parmigiana with Pasta. To begin with I had the Minestrone and he had a salad. We finished with lemon Ice. Delicious. What’s really nice is knowing both restaurants have the exact same core meals.

Food always great. Restaurant was FREEZING and the bathrooms were filthy (as usual). This place is always packed. I’m sure they’re making money here. Why can’t they at least renovate the disgusting bathrooms?

I ordered the Seafood Trio. The menu said it included creamed spinach. It came with chopped spinach under the piece of salmon. OK, probably healthier for me but not expected. Waiter was MIA for extended periods, but other servers met requests for bread refill and questions.

Disappointing for a Lettuce Entertain You Restaurant, where normally everything is consistently excellent. The quality of the ingredients and the fresh fish, I am assuming, were at the usual high quality; unfortunately we couldn’t tell because the entrees were obscured by heavy handed crusts and a bathtub of sauce.

We had another, wonderful dining experience. Wait staff was attentive and informative. Delicious, well prepared food, delivered timely and at the correct temperature.
Ample portions are well appreciated. EVERYONE takes home something.
We've been there many times, and it never disappoints.

My friends and I go here quite often for lunch and to play cards... but that's another review....... ( we love it and we love our server, Joanne...). This review is a dinner with friends. Everyone loved their meal and the server ( see her quite often but can't remember her name ). Tweeking orders is no problem here and is always perfect. DiPescara is a bit noisy but lively which is why we like it ( in addition to the delicious food!!!).

Very good dinner! The Orchard Salad is fresh, crunchy and delicious. The bbq salmon was also fresh and delicious. My husband had the chicken Parmesan and he loved it. The portion was gargantuan, and he took half of it home. We love the two bites desserts. The portion is still generous, but we feel less guilty eating a partial portion. Service was attentive.

An excellent Thanksgiving dinner served family style, providing the guests with leftovers to take home. The staff makes you feel like they want to be there instead of begrudging the fact that they are working on a holiday. The staff adds to the holiday feel. We were not rushed and had time between courses to digest our food. We have enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner there at least five times and have recommended it to others.

We always love it here, but this time the waitress was not so good. She was a little snobbish, and rude. Maybe he was tired, but we weren’t, and she spoiled our evening. This is the first time this happened to us and hope it was the last. Will try it again.

This place has declined. On this visit the waitstaff dumped salad dressing on my mother-in-law not once but twice when rushing past with trays for other tables. The server did not have the sense to offer to dry clean her dress, but the manager did on the way out. Crab shell bits in the California rolls too. Hopefully just a bad day.

Went there for Bday dinner their menu doesn't have a lot of options on it didn't like the fact that all dinner entries came with fries or onion rings and no veggies and I wasn't able to switch out the fries for anything else! Must say the food isn't bad but just average their sushi roll was pretty good and their specialty drinks a majitos were great but I believe this placed is way over priced

I’ve been there many, many times. This time my salad was a huge disappointment. It was missing my favorite ingredients that are listed on the menu. Made for a VERY BORING salad. I will have to question the waiter every time I order to make sure what is stated on the menu is actually on my plate. Very frustrating.

Fish options are delicious. Fresh and tasty. Vegetable sides were also great. Service was also outstanding. Never had to ask for a drink refill, as the server brought each refill before I finished the previous one!
