The food here is good and every dish is handmade....this translates to very long wait times for your food....like 1.5hrs before being served. I thought maybe it was a fluke and even returned just to give it another shot...big mistake. Food is good, but not something I will return to wait 1.5hrs for in the future.

The Pescara menu is ala carte and a bit on the pricey side, but has wonderful food and the service is excellent. It is a grand restaurant to celebrate birthdays, wedding anniversaries or just that you received good news while at the Mayo Clinic. We had sword fish that was cooked to perfection, roasted potatoes that were seasoned just right... More

So many restaurants are really loud these days, this restaurant was lively but not super noisy. The food was wonderful and the lobster bisque was fabulous. Next time we are in Rochester, we will stop by again.

The lobster bisque and crab cake slider for $10. at lunch was an amazing treat. This was truly the best lobster bisque we have ever eaten!!! Warm bread was a great complement to the delicious rich soup. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. 'Keep it up Pescara!

Wonderful food and service! Breakfast, lunch and dinner all excellent! I would rate this restaurant on par with restaurants in New York City. Loved the $10. lunches that are very generous in portions and dinner is fantastic. Great choices of wines. Both manager, Xavi and staff friendly and attentive to details.

Get reservations! They fill up fast. Very good wine list (including some pricey wines that are worth every penny) and menu selections. You'll have a great evening.

We were pleasantly surprised by the variety and freshness of the seafood! Everything we had was wonderful. We started of w the platter for two that had an array of different fish. The crab cakes were some of the best I have EVER had! Walleye and halibut were also great!! Mixed vegetables were fabulous.
