    My brother and I had a great meal . The service was top notch. Only reason 4 out of 5 stars for food was I thought the bread was not great.

    We were meeting someone coming from center city so not usually in this area. What a wonderful place. Byob. We started with salads and stuffed clams . Excellent. For dinner we had the pasta bolognese and the branzino also terrific. Deserts were decadent…chocolate layer cake is not to be missed. Lovely server. Will definitely go back..

    The dinner was absolutely fabulous! For starters we had the flatbread Caesar salad topped with jumbo lump crabmeat and jumbo shrimp oh my god it was fabulous! And enough for 4 of us. For dinner two of us had the Veal Mia, my husband had the braised short ribs and our friend had the seafood Pescatore. We ended the evening with a wonderful pistachio, strawberry gelato dessert covered with chocolate hard shell wow so so good! Everything was delicious. The service was excellent and our waitress was a delight! Will definitely go back

    I had not been to Pescatore in a couple of years. It was as great as I recall. I remembered they had the best meatballs I ever had so had that and was as good as ever. We also had the crab as another appetizer and that was great too. We had the Lobster Fra Diavoli and Seafood Grill and both were great. We had the six layer cake for dessert and that was fabulous. Their pricing is very reasonable, especially considering it is a byob. Service was awesome. We well be back.

    Had the Stuffed Long Hots, the Chilean sea bass, the beef bolognese, and the cannoli. Everything was cooked perfectly and deliciously. I forget my waitresses' name but she was very friendly, and as a former server who had to memorize many specials myself, I was super impressed by the way the described what seemed like a ridiculous amount to memorize. I wasn't surprised when I heard her tell another table she was a neuroscience major at Penn. My only regret leaving here was that I didn't get to eat more of the seafood, and that's only because my wife has allergies.

    I like this restaurant very much. The food is good and it's easy to get there and park. Last night I shared an appetizer and salad and we each had our own entree. We were told there would be a CHARGE to split the salad. We were shocked. We certainly could have purchased two salads and the $3 charge did not break the bank, but it was the experience of it that was so distasteful. It left us with a sour taste. I've left this message hoping someone from the restaurant will see this and reconsider the actual ROI of that charge vs a great user experience. Most dining out is about the total experience. If the food is spectacular or really awful it is remembered. Otherwise, it's the experience that lasts. Thank you.
