This restaurant is permanently closed. Welcome to Tutta Pesca! The Cara family has been a part of the seafood industry for three generations, over 90 years. Cara-Van, our seafood trucking company, is another family run logistics operation. We provide over night delivery service throughout the North East.
Tutta Pesca was inspired by a longtime friendship with a gentleman, Fortunado. He was the owner of the former restaurant here in Hoboken, Tutta Pasta. Having started a construction company in 2008,Tutta Pesca was built by Cara hands and finally came to life in 2015. Our decor is inspired by boutique seafood shops on the lower east side from the 1950s-1970s with a personal touch from our family.

Food was perfectly prepared, fresh, and full of flavor. Once open again, I will be coming back and doing so more often.

Low lighting, but menus are on tablets so you can easily see. Waiter will walk you through the menu. The scallop crostini app along with the grilled octopus app were amazing, perfectly cooked with complementary flavors.

Entrees were perfectly cooked. I ordered the Chilean sea bass and it was delectable with a perfect cook, light crispy outer and beautiful center.

Would recommend the tiramisu and not the creme brûlée.

Three levels. Intimate. Tight quarters but enchanting. Would highly recommend. Be cognizant of the 90min table limit. They’re popular so you’ll need to leave after your 90 min.

Best restaurant in Hoboken. Can compete with any spot in New York. Frank Sinatra and 50s doo-wop songs. Truly amazing food. I usually get the fra diavolo. Seafood tower is unreal. Branzino and grilled tuna with champagne sauce is out of this world. Their pre fix is an unbelievable deal.

I had high expectations for this place based on reviews...I went for lunch on Sunday. Very limited fish menu - I asked for the Branzino they had in the fish display - answer "our guy who cooks Branzino isn't in today" So no whitefish at all - then my guest wanted mashed potatoes - they said they were still cooking them at 1pm??? so we have the grilled potatoes that were big, wet and dry - so I ordered the tuna - RARE...and it was well done and dry --- service was mediocre at best --- never even asked us if we wanted something to drink other than water --- disappointing all the way around :(

A lovely date spot, or special occasion restaurant. Exceptional seafood. We shared and appetizer (prosciutto wrapped shrimp - delicious), and then got one fish entree and a pasta dish. All 3 dishes blew us away! Would definitely (and already have) recommend.

Best seafood restaurant I've been to. Always delicious and the service on point. Love BYOB. Be sure to tip your server extra, because they are still doing the same work to serve you wine, but it's not counted on the bill.

Would not recommend...they rushed us through dinner and then when we asked for dessert we were told our “time with our table” was up - which had only been ONE hour. Do not waste your time here.

Great seafood cooked well as expected. The BYOD thing is annoying and the liquor store didn't have a driver to deliver our order. The iPad menus are also weird... It's traditional, quality food that is cooked well in a modern way . However, the iPads just take away from the ambiance.

I love this restaurant. The food is wonderful! On my last visit, I had the bronzino special which was amazing. Fish is so fresh and prepared so well! My family loves the black pasta seafood dish! For appy's, love the octopus. Not only is the food wonderful but the service can't be beat. The waiters are so welcoming and friendly! This is a great Hoboken find! My only issue is that I do not live in Hoboken so of course parking is a challenge!

This most recent experience killed my dining experience at Tutta Pesca, and disappointed both my dining party and me. This is the third time in the last 3 weeks that we have been told that we had to order, had to move on with dessert, and had to leave because the next reservation was waiting for the table. I have heard that others have had similar experiences. The restaurant is clearly focused on "turning the tables" which ruins the dining experience. I will think twice before going to or recommending Tutta Pesca in the future. There are many options in the Hoboken/Jersey City area.

From the initial greeting when you enter at the bottom store until you exit, you are treated so well. The food is fantastic and on point. The staff is so welcoming and offers tremendous help when making your selections. This Is our second year celebrating friendship at Tutta Pesca and we expect to return next December.

We had a lovely evening at Tutta Pesca. The decor warm and inviting. The fish was fresh cooked to perfection. I had the salt crusted Barnzino and was excellent.
I will definitely go back.
