Pesce Too is the Sister Restaurant of Pesce in Dupont Circle. We are proud to bring Pesce to Capital Hill in a more Relaxed Atmosphere, But the Original is only a few Metro Stops Away.

For 28 Years Pesce has served nothing but the Freshest Seafood in the City. Featuring such Staples as our Grilled Calamari, Octopus, Sardines and much much much. We are dedicated to sourcing the most flavorful and interesting Seafood you will Find.

Pesce is "Fish-Forward" meaning the accompaniments never over-power or outshine the Fish. A Recipe for Success and an Ethos to Live By.

Great new menu at Pesse 2 everything we had was delicious. Try the Curry dish and the small climbs with sausage. Excellent meal on The Hill.

Delighted to find this satellite in our neighborhood. The food is really good: with the same concentration on seafood as the original Pesce. The wine we had was pricy but really good. With taste like that I’ll happily pay the price. Rain drove us off the balcony, but it is a really fine place to dine weather permiting.

Quaint spot with a small but yummy seafood based menu. Great for a date or special occasion if you're in the Eastern Market neighborhood and try to snag one (of 2) patio tables!

The food was terrible. Lobster bisque strange color, taste and texture, calamari and octopus tasted like the grill they were cooked on, and whole fish tasted different on one side than the other. Wait staff pleasant.

A new pop-up by an old Dupont Circle institution. Loved it and would be a great addition to the Hill's growing fine restaurants.

Without a doubt, one of the best meals I've had in DC in quite some time. We knew that Pesce had an outstanding reputation at its DC location, so my BF and I were excited to try this pop up style experience. We were not disappointed. It's obvious that the entire staff, from the host at the door to the table runners, are excited to be part of such a cool experience. Everything we ordered, from the ox tail scallop appetizer to the lobster main course, was outstanding. We can't recommend it enough.

Attentive without being pushy! Let us linger as they were closing. Amazing food!

The Dupont classic opens a Capitol Hill outpost, and it's everything that you would expect: the freshest fish and seafood, expertly and creatively prepared. Just go.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about our dinner here, especially the food. We had the smoked salmon to start and a whole rockfish for the main course. May have been the best restaurant seafood I've had in a long time. It's a little hard to see from the street because it's sharing space with Bullfrog Bagels at Eastern Market.
