Wonderful service and delicious food. Great place for a celebration!
Food and staff remain tops - we all had standard fare from the menu: flatbread Caesar, grilled octopus, bronzino, pasta, etc. We've had everything they offer enough times to say with certainty that you cannot go wrong, no matter what you select! It was our companions' first time here, and they were more than impressed despite the fact that the place seemed a bit overbooked. Despite a waiting crowd, we were seated on time for our reservation - but we were given what was almost certainly one of their usual 2 tops in a location that's usually a 4. This was the first time we've been given truly cramped seating at Pescatore. We understand how tough the business is, and we know that stuff happens - but I might have waited it out for a better table, had I realized what was in store. Even so, it's still our favorite local restaurant!
We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the service was excellent. Very small and cramped so if they took away a table or two it would be better. I also wish that they had the air conditioning on, although the temperature outside was gorgeous it was uncomfortably warm with just a few windows and the door open. However because the food and service was outstanding I would recommend and return.
Food was delicious. My husband and & I shared mussels, special appetizer for the evening. I had braised boneless spare ribs which were extremely tender. I absolutely loved them.
Our server was warm, friendly, and couldn’t do enough for us. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and will return.
Tasty fish and delicious chocolate cake.
One of my complaints about many restaurants is that the servers do not tell the price of specials when reciting them. Pescatore is one of my favorite restaurants and the food is usually top notch, but I ordered a special, as did 3 others in my party. When asked the price, it was misquoted at $10 under the actual price we were charged.
This is my third time to Pescatore and each time I have enjoyed it. The food is excellent and the appetizer flatbread remains my favorite and each entree I try is delicious! We all enjoyed our meal
The reviews here don’t grasp the problem the restaurant faces. As a BYOB, it has no revenue from alcohol. Whatever it makes, it makes on food in a pleasant enough but small room in a corner building on a sleepy suburban village.main street that is otherwise quiet on a weekend night.
Impossible economics, entitled and largely ignorant customer base, the menu has bland standards with no wiggle room in a hemmed in price structure. Staff pleasant in challenging circumstances. Saturday night, the place was packed with happy, pleased diners. Think of The Big Night, only this is the restaurant across the street.
Waitperson excellent, but support was a little lacking. I suspect they were short staffed. Food plentiful and tasty as usual.
Food and service (Marie) excellent. Restaurant very noisy and the tables are very close together. I felt like I was eating with the lady at the next table.
We always have excellent meals at Pescatore.
My second time there. Easy parking , good good and great service .
This was our 3rd visit to Pescatore. It is the best place to celebrate with family and friends. Pescatore has an AWESOME Family Atmosphere! The food is served fresh, hot and so delicious by friendly servers.
The food was excellent, you could tell it was fresh and freshly made, the Caesar salad appetizer was really delicious with crabmeat and shrimp. Our entrees up to par as well. Worth the drive. Will make them a regular stop. Great food, excellent service!!
We always Pescatore but last Friday was very bad night. Server forgot 1st course so took entrees back. Then gave us salad, and the brought entrees back cold and veal beaten to death
Pescatore is one the best Italian restaurant in the Philadelphia area ! The food service all excellent! And it’s a byob ! Go Pescatore ❤️
We arrived early evening (~6:30) and were nearly alone until about 7:00 when it filled rapidly. Food and service were outstanding. It’s pricey but not outlandishly so. I’m not accustomed to the whole BYOB thing but most people I talk with like it since it can cut way down on the price of a good wine. I would come back for sure... for the octopus if nothing else!
Maria the server was amazing, her recommendation of the octopus was on point! Great food great staff
The entrees are large and delicious.
I gave service a 4 only because there was some confusion when we got there by the servers as to who was servicing our table. Once it was figured out, the waitress we had was excellent. She was very attentive.
I would definitely recommend this to others. Food was excellent. Everyone at our table ENJOYED the food.
I would definitely go back again.
The service at Pescatore was amazing and the food was delicious! The Caeser salad was covered with crab and shrimp. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
We go got with friends once a month to try new restaurants. This BYOB was above our expectations from the food and service. Our waitress Savanna was excellent. She recommended the octopus appetizer and we were not disappointed. Lots of entree choices from fish, veal, beef and chicken. We highly recommend it.
Second time dining at Pescatore BYOB. The food is delicious, highly recommend to anyone looking for great Italian cuisine!
Food was great. Highly recommend the stuffed long hots for appetizer!
Great food and service
The chicken liver, mushroom appetizer was delicious!
Savana is the best waitress in the restaurant,
She made our night special, allow ya to have time to chat and enjoyed our dinner . Eight of us , the food was excellent.
Very happy we have this Gem in our neighborhood! :)
Everyone enjoyed each course of the dinner. The Veal Chop Milanese was one of the specials of the evening and it was very good. The service was attentive. Overall a very enjoyable meal.
We were looking for something new Italian. Well we found it and it’s as good if not better than our favs. We will be back many more times. It was great.
Pescatore continues to deliver! Best kept neighborhood gem!!!
It’s hidden on Bala Ave and free parking after 6 PM.
A favorite restaurant in our neighborhood !
Excellent Caesar salad with shrimp
And crab meat ... a must
The food is always good- especially the flatbread special!
Second time there and just as good as the first time.
Food was amazing! I really enjoyed my experience here. Although service was a bit slow, our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and pleasant. I will definitely be returning again!
Very cozy and inviting..Food & service was very good..I would definitely recommend it..I would also go back again..
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!
Surprised by this little gem. Delicious food. Prices were reasonable, excellent service. Tables were very close but it was Valentines day. Will be back
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!
Excellent food and service very busy for Valentines day but service was still very good and we had an excellent meal. Pre fixe menu was vaialbke in addition to the full regular menu.
