Wonderful and intimate byob! From the first bite of our appetizer to the last bite of our dessert my date and I were extremely pleased. We started with the Fritto Misto, a crispy combination of calamari, shrimp and zucchini! Yum! I then had the lobster bisque special. Amazing. For dinner, my man had Flounder stuffed with sauteed spinach and large chunks of crab meat! OMG! I really think my dish stole the show though. Tender lobster ravioli in a rosa sauce with big pieces of sweet lobster meat throughout. From the first bite, I was stuck. I didn't even want to give my boyfriend any lol. It was my birthday, so for dessert, my server Andrea brought out the most decadent piece of chocolate cake that I've had the pleasure of eating. Whoa! Andrea herself sealed the deal for us, she was sweet, attentive and professional. Because of her and that "out of this world" food, we will most definitely return! Thank you Pescatore for a memorable night!

Ever since we found this cute little place, we have been coming year after year for their Valentine’s Day - Surf and Turf. It’s fantastic! The steak is cooked to perfection. We will definitely return every year to celebrate love, wine, and great food!

Took my wife there for her birthday (a really significant one :). A gem of a place with great ambiance, friendly waitstaff, and excellent food. My wife loves Italian food, but Italian is not normally my first choice; however, everything we ordered was delicious and we definitely would go back in a minute. A great BYOB for date night!

Waitress was ok, nothing special. She kept saying “no rush” while handing us our tab. We felt a little too rushed, even though there were quite a few open tables. Will think twice about returning.

The food is always good at Pescatore. Unfortunately the last time we went they told us a special had a specific price, then charged us $10 more, and did not attend to the notes I put about a special birthday in Open Table. That is why I chose 4s rather than 5s.

The server was incompetent. Had no idea what the risotto of the evening was, brought us crab cakes instead of the baked calamari that we had ordered - claimed it was his second shift so not up to snuff!

Food was mediocre. I don’t understand serving cold bread...ever. I am Italian and the pasta I made at home last night was far superior to the meal we ate there. Service was very nice, but I wouldn’t go back.

Great little BYOB in Bala Cynwyd. To Start had the flatbread that was served with a caesar salad with crabmeat and shrimp which was absolutely delicious. Also shared the grilled octopus and that it melt in your mouth. Would highly recommend and will be back.

Grilled Octopus - Appetizer was tasty and fresh; however, the portion size is too small for sharing.
We both ordered the Bronzino which was prepared beautifully. For dessert we ordered the chocolate cake which was large enough to split.
Our server was efficient and attentive. We’ll be back. Pescatore BYOB consistently affords a quality dining experience. Cheers!

Great food! Flatbread salad with shrimp & crab meat was amazing! Veal chop also great, which they gladly altered to b/c I did not want the mushrooms. Our server got overwhelmed by a big party and gave us a little attention after they arrived, but other than that an excellent meal at a place I highly recommend!
