Dinner was fabulous and the service is consistently great. I loved the food
Service was almost 6 stars ⭐️ but a few small misses.
Our meal was delicious, and the service warm and friendly. Would be happy to revisit Pescatore with friends.
Always consistently good. We always have a great meal.
Second time going and will definitely be going back. Great food and excellent service.
We had a very nice anniversary meal. (probably better than the marriage has been lately :) ). IT is a very nice cozy restaurant on Bala in Bala Cynwyd. It is a neighborhood gem; to bad they can't get more things going on that street. We opted for the baked calamari with some sauce and cheese. It was a nice healthy option from the fried; and it still had a good flavor...maybe could have used some spicing up.
The Mrs. had a linguine with seafood... very plentiful and very tasty, as I just finished the leftovers before writing this. I opted for the sword fish. Biggest piece I had in my life (fish wise) and cooked perfectly for being 2 inches or more thick, on a bed of spinach and with a fabulous puttanesca sauce.
It was likely because they were not busy or maybe my luck. (it was the chefs special). We brought our own wine, no charges or that for glass service.
The bread was delicious accompanied by a pesto sauce and delicious thin flakes of parmesan.
Of course the homemade 5 layer chocolate cake capped off a much surprising excellent dining experience on the main line.
Our first time eating here. Wonderful attentive service. BYOB with a delicious meal. Would definitely return with friends!
My Wife & I have been to Pescatore three previous times and have always enjoyed the food and service. We recommended it to our friends (another couple) & went there before a show at the Mann Theater. We all ordered our meals. Our friend Robin & I ordered Bucatini Pescatore. When the food was brought to our table only three orders were brought to us. The waitress made the mistake of giving the chef only one order of Bucatini Pescatore. It took another 15 minutes for the second order to come out. The waitress apologized for the mistake & said that she would talk to the Manager. We even asked the Manager when the second order was coming out & he seemed annoyed by it. The Manager never came to our table to apologize & no reduction was made on our tab for the inconvenience.
I recognize that mistakes are made sometimes. Nevertheless it is up to the Manager to the accommodate the customers for those mistakes. The food was very good as before but we will look for another restaurant when we are in the City Ave. area
Great place for dinner, especially if you're going to the Mann Center for the Performing Arts
This is a very nice Italian BYOB - a Philly style gravy house done right - bread served with pesto and slivers of parmesan cut from a huge round, nice appetizers, fresh pasta - I had fettuccine bolognese and K had Nonna’s Sunday Supper with meatballs, Italian long hots, veal sausage and a lamb ragu! Huge portions, big flavors - we’d come back either for more pasta or the many entrees they also offered.
Excellent dinner before show at the Mann. Not from the area, chose strictly from Open Table and we were not disappointed. Terrific selections, specials and service.
Fabulous food and presentation! Service excellent! Great ambience!
My wife and I were in our 29th wedding anniversary and were running late for our reservation and thought that that would be a problem but they were very accommodating. The music selection was excellent and the food was terrific I would definitely come back
Everything is always great!
Great place and always great food!!
Everything was fabulous! Extremely friendly atmosphere!
Good food, nice atmosphere, good service, will come back!
Food was very good. Wait staff was not sufficient for the volume of customers. They were running around trying to help everyone but were overworked and could not pay attention properly to each table.
Finished off our meal with Capacinos which were only warm and flavorless.
Absolutely delicious meal from appetizers thru to desserts!!!! Pescatore provides a fantastic atmosphere and service also.
Everything was fine but had to ask waitress about cheese for pasta and also for coffee
First time visit prior to show at Mann, won't be our last. What a great find! Everything was outstanding. Nonna's Dish with lamb ragout was delicious. Short Rib was yummy. Special caesar flatbread with crab & shrimp was generous and so good. Ryan was a very helpful server, great recommendations. BYOB too!
One of my favorite restaurants. The food is always excellent and creative. Friendly atmosphere. And BYOB which is good. I love it.
Salad and flat bread were excellent but very expensive. Pasta dish was bland. Tiramisu was dry and tough. Anticipated a better meal based on the reviews but disappointed. Can not recommend.
Excellent food and service. Noise level markedly improved over last year. Will return often.
We love this local BYOB in Bala Cynwyd. The food is always great and the service was friendly and complete.
It was a great place to have dinner and to talk with your friends. The menu choices were wonderful
Waiter was very responsive to my complaint of my dish being too salty. He asked what else I might like and was able to bring it to me in good time...with out to much salt!
Apparently the fish stock was salty.
Great Italian food from appetizers to desert. Will definitely return.
We both enjoyed our dishes but we thought they had some odd options. They ruined a perfectly good lobster tail by cooking it in egg batter. Who does that? Also, our waitress basically forgot about us once our orders were in. We had to ask a manager to bring us an ice bucket after she offered to bring one and never did. We also had to ask for waters and even had to ask someone to bring us a check. Then I watched a person start puking at the table behind us, resulting in us losing our appetites. Of course, that was out of the restaurants control, but the experience overall was a little diasspointing to say the least
It was quiet and delightful, our server was a doll. We’ve had her before. ReLly enjoyed the meal
Spectacular food matched only the people working there
I fell in love with Pescatore and cannot wait to go back. The warm Caesar shrimp/lump crab salad on flatbread was everything! The service was the best. It is a very well kept secret.
Everything was delicious! Service was great!
Food choices just ok. Taste was very good but portions not really adequate especially for the price. Service declined. Front of house people need to smile more. We didn’t bring wine so only had tap water. No one ever came over to refill our water glasses. Expected more from this type of restaurant.
An outstanding neighborhood seafood and Italian restaurant. It’s fine dining but not fancy.
We recently visited Pescatore for my husband's birthday and surprised him with two of our friends who met us there. None of us had ever eaten there before. We were very happy with the meal and service. The restaurant was cozy but tables weren't on top of each other. Decor could use some updating but pleasant atmosphere overall. Food was excellent. Crab cakes very good! Think the tiny cannoli for birthday treat could have been larger but overall a very good experience!
It was a wonderful night. The food was absolutely delicious.
This was our first visit and we were not disappointed! The flatbread Caesar is AMAZING!! Three of us had the swordfish special and it was also ANAZING! Great service - very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable! We chose Pescatore because it is close to the Mann and we were seeing a show there. I will definitely be back and will always pair a night at the Mann with dinner at Pescatore!
The food was excellent, ingredients seemed fresh and dishes tasted homemade. Staff was very friendly. Prices are on the upper end but I can understand being a BYOB. I would RECOMMEND this restaurant to anyone that asked.
We had another great meal the Resturant. They do a great job.
My friends wanted to try a new place, so I found this restaurant by doing a search for restaurants in the suburbs of PA. I am glad I did. We had a great time and enjoyed the attention we received from the servers. Food was excellent. Because we booked an early dinner at 5 pm, we had the place to ourselves. I noted that it got busier as the night progressed. By the time we left, every table was taken. I would recommend this place to others if they are in the Bala Cynwyd area.
