Heard about this place through a friend who lives in the area so my husband and I decided to give it a try for a mid-week date night. The staff were so welcoming and friendly as we walked in. We have been looking forward to a nice dinner out for a while now and Pescatore did not disappoint. Food was top notch Italian and was absolutely delicious. I had the crab flatbread and my husband had a pasta dish. It was cooked perfectly and so full of flavor. I can’t wait to go back and try something different. Perfect place for a date night!

With so many great choices to dine, I advise you to skip this one. We were here 5 years ago and had great food with fresh ingredients and fantastic service. Service is still great but the food...not so much. Lettuce in the salad was old-I would have discarded it if I had that at home. This is tomato season and the tomato that was served with the eggplant stack was the butt end and was not ripe. The mixed ocean grill was just ok-nothing memorable. The Halibut special was also just average.

I’ve been going here over 15 years and have never had a bad meal up until now. Both my date and my entrees were less than desirable. As a second choice we settled for because they sold out of the special which we had originally come for, every thing lacked flavor. The pasta was so hard; not even al dente while other items were overcooked. Thankfully all wasn’t lost. The appetizers, dessert, and waitress saved the day. Their service level even while receiving complaints has always been professional, accommodating, and courteous. I will return as we all have bad moments. It’s still my go to neighborhood spot!

Excellent food and service! We had the grilled calamari and salad with apples, Gorgonzola and walnuts for appetizers. Both very good. But my favorites was my main course, Nonas’s Sunday Gravy. So good! It came with an oversized meatball, sausage and ricotta over cavatelli. I can’t wait to have this again! Service was excellent. Very attentive in refilling water, clearing and checking to see if we needed anything. Don’t miss the chocolate cake or cannoli for dessert!!

Our server was lovely and sweet...2 people at my table ordered the short ribs and 3 of us ordered the mint chip gelato - both of these things were on the 3 course menu....we were told we either all had to order from the 3 course menu or all off the regular menu--couldn't split it up, which seemed odd and non customer friendly...after they took our order and got our appetizers someone came over and told us they ran out of short ribs and the gelato ( our reservation was a t 7pm),....none of our dishes were very tasty except for the clams appetizer. We won't be rushing back.

My husband and I celebrated an anniversary last night with a meal full of freshness and


flavor at this popular restaurant in our neighborhood. Of course, we ordered seafood dishes and every bite was delicious. (We had: Octopus appetizer, 2 lobster, scallops & shrimp entrees, and lemoncello cake.) We enjoyed easy conversations with people at both well-spaced tables next to us - so convivial - and they shared two glasses of their nice red wine! The staff were pros on every level and we appreciated their good service.

It has been a long time since we were here but it will not be long before we come back!

We weren’t aware this was a BYOB, but the hostess told us where a liquor store was (about a 3 min drive). We came for dinner before a concert at the Mann. Excellent choice! The seafood sampler appetizer was delectable, as was the scallop appetizer over polenta. For dinner we had a pistachio and panko crusted halibut, and their signature seafood flatbread. Everything was super flavorful and well portioned. I would definitely suggest asking for half the normal amount of greens as the base was completely hidden beneath the mound of lettuce! But the flavors and amount of seafood in the dish were amazing! We will definitely return when in the area!

My family took me there for my birthday - the service was warm and attentive, the food was outstanding - for the young and not so young people. I had the veal chop special and it was well seasoned and cooked to perfection. The flatbread app and Nonna meatballs were also a big hit.

I will return again and highly recommend Pescatore BYOB for any occassion.

First time visit to Pescatore BYOB. Went there for a surprise Birthday celebration for my girlfriend. Read several positive reviews online and the proximity to the concert venue we were headed to next sealed the reservation. We were early since Philadelphia traffic is unpredictable and they still seated the two of us immediately. The server was prompt polite and very professional but unfortunately, I do not remember her name. Nonetheless, she was great. The place is small and unassuming but directed with what I believe were family photos and other elements you would expect to see in an Italian Resturant. We brought our own wine since it was BYOB. The star of the night was the food. We ordered an appetizer special of Lobster tail, mussels, cherry tomatoes and pasta in a spicy Fra Diavolo based sauce which my Girlfriend talked about the rest of the evening. I had an Apple Salad with gorgonzola cheese, walnuts, beets and carrots. with a raspberry vinaigrette. Stuffed tortellini over crab in a Mac and Cheese sauce. We followed that with the very rich chocolate 6 layer cake. It was all great. We will be going back soon. You should go. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The concert and fireworks that followed were pretty good too.

Pleasant setting - table settings have reasonable spacing. It does get a little noisy with a full dining room. Portions are ample and generally well presented. The octopus starter was very tasty and attractively presented. The halibut special done in a puttanesca style was quite substantial corresponding to its high price of $34. My friend's scallop dish was less appealing - she thought it somewhat chewy - perhaps overcooked and the balsamic sauce was maybe too strong, interfering with the scallop flavor. Overall, I would recommend and definitely go back to try other dishes.
