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.

The seafood flatbread was absolutely amazing, and we enjoyed everything.

The staff was also very nice and responsive.

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!

Spring is here (OK, almost here - it was 70+ and beautiful yesterday). So dinner outside at Pescatore was truly welcome! The staples are still great - flatbread Caesar & sauteed artichokes were our usual great start. But the special appetizer was arancini with crab inside, and I LOVE arancini - so I had that too. Pescatore's are absolutely fabulous - prepared perfectly, presented artfully, and really delicious! My wife had Chilean sea bass (the daily fish special), and it was also among the best examples we've ever had - a large and meaty but light fillet that was seasoned and cooked just right. I had the pasta special, which was ravioli in a blush sauce filled with so much seafood I'm not sure what all of it was - lobster, crab, and maybe some shrimp. And it was plated with a few large shrimp, for an added dose of wow. La dolce vita for sure!!
