I totally agree with "Mediocre" .... this place needs a lot of work. The decor is akin to an open cafeteria; one table on top of the next. The server was good until I had a problem with my fish; then, she had a bit of a meltdown. I ordered the Chilean sea bass. It arrived and was clearly undercooked.... More

Contrary to what most of the reviews state, this is a noisy, unsophisticated restaurant in a shopping mall. There is valet parking, but the maitre d' didn't volunteer that validation is unnecessary. The dining room is extremely noisy. The service is adequate, while the food is mediocre, if not slightly overpriced. In summation, there is nothing going for it.

It is not often that you find good restaurants, let alone excellent restaurants in a Shopping Mall. Di Pescara was a pleasant surprise. My husband and I like to go to Northbrook Court Mall located in Northbrook, IL. It has typical "mall" stores, but also has quite a few designer shops like Burberry, Louis Vuitton, etc. Yes...they have the typical... More

We ate at Di Pescara again it is one of our favorites. I had Maine lobster, and the others in my group had chopped steak, salmon. All very good. But my one issue is that my drink glas was very dirty. I sent it back and they provided a clean refreshed glass of champagne. Please clean the menus and tables... More

Great restaurant, bustling atmosphere and really busy, but the staff were still very attentive and polite. Didn't take long for our food once it was ordered, and it was excellent! Great quality and hot! Obviously the place to go. I visited mid-week and it was really busy then, so I can imagine the weekends would be even busier - so... More

We are fans of the other Lettuce Entertain You restaurants, so we were excited to try Di Pescara in Northbrook. The server made us feel rushed as the menus were barely handed over and she was asking for our order. We sat in the bar area and found that it all looked a bit tired. The finish on our table...

Visited Di Pescara around 8pm on Saturday night - while the mall was clearing out, the restaurant was bustling, yet our party of 10 didn't wait more than 10 minutes to get seated. The host and wait staff were friendly. The atmosphere was energetic and loud. The tables are close to one another, but not too difficult to navigate. The... More

Place I'd return every week while on a project north of Chicago when in the mood for fish. Their miso-glaced Chilean sea-bass is to die for. Whitefish a good option.

Was in the northern suburbs doing some shopping and had the chance to sit down for lunch at DiPescara. Was looking to try something new and this fit the bill. Service was friendly and helpful. I started with the Clam Chowder... not the best I've ever had but it was serviceable. For my entree, I had the horseradish-crusted whitefish... normally... More
