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.

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.

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!

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!

What can I say; it has been a favorite of Jaana and mine for to many years to list. You wont find a more consistent place in NYC. The service, food, and drinks are great. One of the very few places in the city with a steady neighborhood crowd and wait staff that has been on board for years, that says something in a city like New York.
Mangia!

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.

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.

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!

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.

What an underwhelming way to spend dinner. Wish we would have found somewhere where they know how to cook steak and seafood. The salmon carpaccio was just bland lox over a bed of unseasoned spinich, the NY strip steak was not a good cut of meat, the fish special, snapper, was tough and flavorless, and the key lime pie for dessert tasted like it was from a supermarket. On the upside, the waitstaff were friendly and attentive. We hated to complian at them, so just paid the bill and left, never to return.

Six of us came for lunch on the company tab. we were seated on the 2nd floor balcony which was perfect for the sunny day. we started with the crispy bruschetta (piled with tomatoes & onions) & caprese (fresh mozzarella with very fresh tomato) as appetizers. afterwards, i had the grilled tuna ($18) served with bean salad. the huge tuna steak was very fresh and grilled rare according to my specifications. it was simply flavoured with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. the fish came atop a huge pile of bean (assortment of white, red, and string beans) salad marinated in a slightly spicy tomato-based sauce it complimented the steak very well. we sampled a few of the desserts. the homemade cheesecake was especially good (light & airy). the white chocolate mousse cake was pretty awful though very dry and dense. bill came to $220 including tip & drinks.

I went here for dinner after reading the reviews for this place. The people were nice and attentive. The menu had a good number of options. The calamari was a good portion and the lobster bisque was amazing. Try the halibut. And the tiramisu is a must. The value is excellent.

Nothing really stood out here. The service was good and they were on point with us. The best thing we had here were the New Zealand muscles...it was the special. They were HUGE and came in this tastey spicey sauce.

Meals were average at best.

Dinner bill minus any drinks was around 70 bucks.

Recent renovaitons eliminated one of the big draws, the Brick Oven which turned out great pizza and the like has been REMOVED. I went there at least a dozen times per year hosting and or directing parties to pescatore as well. It looks like the place is in going to head down the slippery slope of cutting cost and losing more business. It's a shame and I'm not happy.

A little pricey, but otherwise the olives were delicious and the lobster bisque wonderful. My mother loved her penne ala vodka. Overall, a wonderful experience.

This is a great place for lunch during the week. The value at lunch time is great and you have a wide range of things to choose from. My department always has lunch out here when we go out as a group. Very good food. You can chose between Pasta, Chicken, Sandwiches and of course fish. I don't eat fish, but I have heard they have great seafood. They have a monsterous fish dish which takes two people to eat.

It is hard to find a restaurant that you can count on for a romantic dinner or a fun lively time with some friends or a great party setting with such reliable service and continually fabulous food. Maybe that is why there are so many regulars at Pescatore. The food is consistently delicious, always go for the fish special! or the osso buco and don't forget the chopped salad. The wine list is good, there is always a nice Chianti available and the staff is friendly and competent. I'm there every couple of weeks and from all the friendly faces I now recognize, so are a lot of other New Yorkers. Thanks Pescatore.......

When a friend recently told me about this great restaurant on second ave, I was a bit skeptical bc her enthusiasm was over the top. She was not wrong to be excited about finding it. Pescatore has such a great warm atmosphere and delicious food. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE BABY LAMB CHOPS! I could almost make a meal from the olives and bread that they serve before your meal arrives (but make sure you save room for dessert - delicious cheesecake). The staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. Besides the great food, my boyfriend loved the big flat screen TV they have over the bar area.

We had a wonderful dinner here before the theatre. It was walking distance from our hotel (2 blocks). The ambience was warm and friendly. The food was incredible!! We would recommend "Linguini Pescatore" very highly. All the seafood in it was prepared perfectly -- Not overcooked! Be prepared for LARGE portions. Loved the olives!

With so many choices available to us in the city, may I suggest you venture elsewhere to satisfy your craving for fine Italian cuisine? I was there recently with a group of friends which gave me the opportunity to sample the menu. There was nothing that offended the senses, but there was also nothing notable to speak of. Instead the place manages to offer average fare, served by an inexperienced wait staff.

I went to Pescatore on a Thursday. Excellent ambience, service was good but so dissapointed w/ the food. We ordered fried calamari for appetizer and it was gummy, linguini with clam sauce was dry. My friend ordered ravioli it was nothing special. You only pay for the ambience though.

Sushi Rose, Murphy's Pub, Oriental Noodle & Pescatore are my 4 frequented spots in this area - diverse yet all very good. appetizers were good, mixed greens & calamari & veal francese were my favorite orders. bread little hard but dipped in olive oil & balsamic was good. svc could be better. a little tight for table of 3-4. nice to sit by balcony except during hot humid weather. SUM IT: give this a try, a little pricey for this area but it's good food.

What it seems to be a nice restaurant from the outside could turn into a very mediocre experience while sitting down. Our apetizers took quite a while to be served, in fact, while all the other tables that sat way after us were being served I asked the waiter what happened to our appetizers, the calamari was tough; The entrees were tasteless and really!, one have to be really bad to mess a simple pasta dish. Pitty!

I looked this place here, on citysearch, and decided to try it. Went there with my friends, one of them was an editor for Departure magazine (luxury travel, food and wine). He used to dining at the best restaurants and he was surprised how great this place was. Food, service and atmosphere were way above your regular restaurant. Try it and see for yourself.

Our meal was very nice and the service - eh, nothing to rave about. The waitress took us as tourists and hand wrote a message about tipping 20%. After paying she returned and demanded a higher tip.

This resturant was good with a big group. I was searching diligently for an Italian resturant that was good with groups and had good food. They greeted me with a big Happy Birthday when we came in the door. We had 11 people the staff was friendly, the food was excellent, and they gave us a room upstairs away from the crowd and noise, with the radio tuned to whatever we wanted. And most of all we were comfortable. Beside the fact that there was one food slip up, this resturant was GREAT!!!

First, my appetizer of "fresh" mozzarella, tomato and peppers was "fresh" in the sense that was not "polly-o". It may have been fresh three or four days ago, but what I had was hard and bland. Either get a new supplier, or stop serving old fresh mozzarella. The catfish special was perfectly cooked, but brutally over-seasoned. When you have a great piece of fish (as they had), subtle seasoning is all that is required (and desired). I actually experienced physical pain while eating, there was so much pepper on the fish.

Decor was nice, quiet music in the background, and the staff was friendly and attentive. Pescetore could definitely be a great with the right chef (or properly instructed cooks). For now, it stays in the list of "could have beens".

what an unbelievably yummy and fantastic place to go. this is truly a neighbood secret slowly being let out of the bag. this swimmingly fab food goes so well with the tremendous wine list offered.. the sleek surroundings and casual atmosphere allow for romance or a fun group setting. what an enjoyable array of paintings and photos placed so uniquely on the walls. but, the staff has to be the ultimate draw to this fine establishment. the waiters always know what to deliver and the best things to recommend!! another place that belongs in heaven!!

Pros: fun, delicious, superior service

The food and decor was excellent. If you are looking for a nice small restuarant, with great service and excellent food, look no further. My girlfriend and I had a great time. The black linguine was so good. But really the best part of the meal was the delicious homemade tiramisu

The food was good here and the service was excellent!The waiter gave excellent service he was very attentive to our every needs during dinner and extreamly polite.(something I am truely picky on.) The bill was very reasonably priced considering in new york city standards and I would definatly go back there again! The only con was that the place was too noisy and parking around that area sucks.

This place was packed, so reservations ahead of time are a must! With Reservations, our party waited 25 minutes for a table. The menu provided a vast selection, and the appetizers themselves were large portions and delicious. The entree is a heavenly delight for seafood lovers--so much to choose from, this is deserving of additional visits. I regret we didn't have room for dessert. The only mildly negative is in regard to the service--it's so busy, you'll definitely need to flag down the wait staff; rarely will be come over and ask you about the food.

Rest. lost our reservation. It was a Saturday night. What's a party of 8 to do? Not to worry. The host found a table for us, and a great waiter. Food was wonderful.

This place was great: the food was delicious (especially the desserts --the cheesecake was amazing), the waiters were really friendly and nice. I don't think you can go wrong with this place - whether you're on a date or with a group of friends.

A very good option for a nice dinner in a comfortable setting. The menu is quite varied, with fish, meat, and pasta entries. The specials are always good. As the specialty is fish, most of their fish dishes are fantastic. Great date restaurant, if a bit on the noisy side.

Editorial from

Colorful tile covers the outside of this neighborhood fish spot, which offers great value for well turned-out dishes. That's why Pescatore, a casual restaurant with two separate dining rooms, is always packed. We prefer the smaller eating…
