Much bigger inside than I would have thought. We live close so we're so happy to have a nice restaurant within walking distance. Also, BYOB saves on booze. Will absolutely return.

We loved our dinner at Pescatore. We ordered all of the appetizer specials of the evening plus the signature flatbread topped with Caesar salad and crab and shrimp, Nonna's Meatballs, Clams Casino, Fettuccine Bolognese, Lobster Ravioli and the Chicken Belleza. Scrumptious! Everything was perfect.

Did they change the chef? A dramatic difference from last dining experience, the food did not compare to prior visit in the winter.

Pescatore BYOB will be our new “go to” date spot. From the atmosphere to the food to the service, we had the best meal and experience. Highly recommend the signature flatbread, stuffed long hots, and spinach gnocchi for eats. Special shout-out to our waitress Gabby who went above and beyond to make sure all our needs were met throughout the evening. HIGHLY recommend this spot and will be telling everyone about it.

Read good things about Pescatore and wanted to try it out. Since it was Friday, it was busy. It is a very nice place when you first enter. The hostess was very nice and seated us right away. We waited for a few minutes and our server introduced herself. My husband stepped away from the table to take a call from our daughter and when the service first came over for intros I also tried to order an appetizer. I was told they can only be place when the whole order was ready to be sent to the back. Ok, no problem. My husband came back and so did the server. She went through all the specials and told us she would come back in a few mins. This turned into least 15 mins later. We ordered the Branzino and crab cakes. We received our app, the Signature Flat bread. It was amazing! It took some time for us to receive our entrees. When we received them, they were wrong. We received another order instead of the crab cakes and my branzino was luke warm at best. I reallyhad high hope for this place.

Another fine Sunday dinner - the great news is that soft shell crabs are back!! There were too many great specials to try them all - the seafood stuffed mushrooms looked and sounded particularly great, so we'll try them next time. I really needed the grilled octopus. The fish of the day was done in a putanesca sauce, and the flatbread Caesar remains my wife's favorite. But the soft shell crabs were certainly the highlight of the meal. We wait all winter for them, and the reward is worth it! With fine service from a delightful staff, we just love the place!

Food was really good and fresh - the soft-shell crab entree was delicious and perfectly cooked and lightly spiced.

Just a little bit pricey - but being a BYO certainly helped. Would definitely come back!

We love this place an were excited to be back after the shutdown. The appetizers were delicious. We had the burrata salad and stuffed mushrooms. The soft shell crabs were delicious. I get the Branzino here often as it is usually so fresh and served with A light lemon butter sauce. However this time was nothing like it usually is. The sauce was thick and the fish didn’t have the lightness and fresh sea taste. Not like what we usually get. The Brussels sprouts were terrible - seemed like they had been reheated

Great meal.
Although, I had a hair in my food which I didn’t notice until I was almost done the octopus. It was good besides that but I didn’t finish the dish after I saw it.

Enjoyed our dinner and also the one we took home for the next night. They require one main per person and my husband and I are small eaters. Great for a second night.

We shared the cheesecake dessert and it was delicious.

So much to like about Pescatore. The quaint neighborhood, inside atmosphere and decor plus impeccable friendly service! An exciting delicious sounding menu however only 4 out of the 9 dishes we ordered tasted 'good' on our recent visit. Seemed the chef forgot salt & other spices from the gnocchi, stuffed peppers, bread and all sauces. The flatbread, seafood pasta and fish dishes were good. The 6 of us were disappointedwith the food overall.

Meatballs are the BEST!!! I know it's a fish restaurant--these meatballs are fab. We always get one order to share (there are 2 large ones with lots of red gravy.

The specials were crab stuffed mushrooms and sea bass on risotto--both heaven.

This is a great restaurant.

Outdoor heating--not so good.

World-class food; unpretentious yet sophisticated ambience; friendly service

We had the pleasure of dining here Saturday night - hats off to the chef for creating savory, well-thought-out food. The meatballs, Pescatore seafood dish (mussels, clams, crab, aromatic tomato basil sauce) and veal with asparagus and perfectly seasoned rice were entree favorites.

We also enjoyed sharing several appetizers, including calamari with zesty tomato sauce, crab-stuffed mushrooms and creative Caesar-salad topped flatbread. Delicious!

Our server was cheerful, knowledgeable and attentive - even on a busy night. She answered questions and knew the menu inside out - she helped us make choices that led to a really well-balanced and tasty meal.

I’ve eaten here before and also loved the fresh burrata appetizer - too many great choices for one visit!
