Great as always! The panko crusted halibut was particularly fabulous - thick but tender, meaty and incredibly tasty. Staples like the grilled octopus always please, and the staff are wonderful!

I used to enjoy going to Pescatore. I have been there dozens of times over the years, but my experience last night was insulting and unacceptable. Four of us were seated at 5:30 - no one else was in the restaurant When we asked a waitstaff to turn down the VERY LOUD volume of music, our request was denied and were told that the restaurant would fill up and we wouldn't notice the loud music. We made a second request to a different waitstaff who approached the manager, but we were ignored. The third request was to ask to speak to the manager. Eventually the music was turned down, but the manager never gave us the courtesy to speak to us. I was very dissatisfied with the poor treatment that we received.

This was a meeting place between family. It exceeded or expectations. Everything was delicious. We even observed a waitress assisting a regular in and out of the restaurant.

We were a group of 6 ladies meeting for our book club discussion. We decided to try Pescatore, since a few of us had not been to this restaurant. We all felt the good was excellent. For dessert we shared a slice of the Limoncello cake, which was divine. The restaurant was a bit dim in the evening so it was tough to read the specials board. Service was excellent.

I just love having Pescatore in my neighborhood. I can’t think of any other way to say it, other than it is a treasure in the community. Beautiful meal, good service and a nice atmosphere. I hope they stay in business for a long, long time.

Tables are too close together; could barely hear waitress describing the specials; noise level from other tables was annoying.
Waitress ok, seemed to be too busy with other customers.
Food was quite good in general.

Food is usually very good. Have to question the chef plopping a wad of ricotta on top of their pasta dishes for garnish? I believe it detracts from the pasta dishes as it is not really called for.

Pescatore is a family style, yet intimate BYOB restaurant that has excellent service and food. Their daily specials are delicious while the standard menu items are still fresh and just as good. They are constantly great.
