Best Italian on the East side. – I had an excellent meal at Pescatore. I had the pan seared Bass and it was the best fish I have had in the city in the 4 years that I have lived here!
My date got a traditional Italian dish and was delicious as well!
Great food, good place for a date, even great service.
Great dining exprience – The ambiance is great and the food is fantastic. This place is a must go for a romantic date!
One of the Best Italian and Seafood in the City – Amazing selection of Italian and Seafood. I must go back there and try everything on the menu. Also a great spot for a romantic date, the ambiance is just right. Be sure to make a reservation, this place is packed every night!
Great Italian Wine Bar & Restaurant – I am surprised there isn't more reviews for this Italian Wine Bar & Restaurant. I was here for a good friend's birthday party. As you usually experienced, people would come in late but the manager didn't give us any attitude at all.
They have an extensive wine list but too bad I couldn't drink on empty stomach. Their food on the other hand, is delicious and reasonably priced.
I got the seafood salad, Tuna Bruschetta and homemade cheesecake. Each dish is just amazing! The seafood salad has a generous portion of seafood and the flavor is refreshing but not fishy. Tuna Bruschetta is surprisingly big; I was expecting a small slice of bread. And finally, the homemade cheesecake is just creamy and light.
If you are looking for an extensive Italian menu, this is not the restaurant for you. But what this place offers is great simple Italian meal with huge wine list.
Great italian food – My husband and I were spending the night in NYC on Christmas day. We had no idea where to go for good Italian food in Midtown, and the hotel bellman recommended that we try Pescatore. I'm so glad that we did! The restaurant ambiance was cozy and inviting. We got two appetizers (brasciole and bruschetta), penne vodka and bronzini for entrees, and home-made tiramisu for dessert (Yum!). The bruschetta was perfectly seasoned. The pasta was cooked perfectly al dente. The bronzini had great flavor, and the tiramisu was delightful. Overall, two very enthusiastic thumbs up for Pescatore. We will definitely come back!
fGreat Restaurant for a Bridal Shower – I had a bridal shower for my daughter on 5/3/08. Pescatore was truly an amazing place to celebrate this very special occasion. The service, food, drinks, etc. could not have been better. All the guests were so thrilled with their great food and service. The staff was extremely helpful, even helping us load gifts in and out of our vehicle. I highly recommend Pescatore for a private party event. Manager Charlesand staff helped us have a very memorable day! We can't wait to return for another great meal!
Great food, great little place. – I found out about Pescatore about a year ago, and I've been a loyal customer ever since. The servers are very friendly, knowledgeable, and accomodating. I have never had a bad experience here. Their selection of appetizers, pastas, and fish is great and their food is always fresh. Their dishes are very natural and not over-done, with just the right amount of seasonings and garnishings. Granted, this place is not exactly what I would call cheap, but you do get some great food for the price.
Oh, and their tiramisu is heavenly.
Great seafood italian gem – We were planning to go to a sushi place tonight and it was closed. As we walked along 2nd avenue we found Pescatore because of the crowded outdoor seating and interesting seafood menu. We were greeted by a pleasant hostess who surprisngly sat us immediately. The service was prompt and friendly and the food was amazing with great portions and a creative menu. Our entrees included shark fillet and an abundance of fresh seafood such as: Lobster, prawns, swordfish, mussells and scallops. The sorbet dessert was a great way to cap off the meal. The presentation was creative as the mango sorbet was presented in a mango shell. Reasonable prices, attentive friendly staff and a great low key location on 2nd avenue.
Good food, great service – The food was very good, and our service was even better. We had pasta and seafood dishes, which were very good, but I would not classify them as outstanding. Next time, we will try fish entrees as that is the specialty. Loved the atmosphere as well. We will head back!
Excellent value and service – Whenever we are in the city for the day we eat at Pescatore. The service is great and the food is delicious. In the nice weather we love the balcony overlooking second ave and enjoy leisurely lunches. The New Zealand Mussels are our favorite and the ossubucco is tender and melts in your mouth. The newly renovated side of the restaurant was a great idea and the ambience is wonderful. The staff is very attentive and makes you feel like family. We recommend this restaurant highly to all our friends and family and have never been disappointed.
