Wonderful food and wine list

The food was fabulous with lots of options as to how you wanted anything prepared. Seafood is to die for. Wine list was impressive and waiters knowledge of the wines was very good.

I hesitate to give reviews that aren't highly rated. I expected more. My husband said he would give it a 4 and I would give it a 3.5. We both had house specialties. The waitress was fine, but my husband's wine came when he was half way through his meal. His salmon had an interesting "sauce" but was dry. My... More

Outstanding fish. Best I've ever had. We ate at the bar. Great atmosphere. Service was excellent. Not cheap but worth every penny.

We had a wonderful experience at Pescara on a Saturday evening. Our server recommend many things and we took her up on those recommendations. We started with delicious mussels and then had halibut and steak, along with wild mushroom risotto. All of it was so delicious and prepared perfectly. The breads, along with the variety of specialty salts, were fun... More

This restaurant constantly is ranked as one of the best in Rochester, and for good reason. The food is always fresh and flavorful. The fish tacos are a must try!

I had an initially bad experience because of allergies not taken seriously by a waiter. Then another misunderstanding made due to ordering room service. Ouch-another allergy problem. This was made much better when the restaurant manager and the cook for spoke to me and made a subsequent meal. The meal was beyond phenominal! Well cooked and seasoned and just wonderful.... More

The food was amazing with unusual bursts of flavor. We sat outside because we didn't have reservations and didn't want to wait for an hour to be seated (on a Thursday night), but the traffic was really loud and detracted from the ambience.

My husband and I raved about this place, so lucky to have found it for lunch this week. Excellent service, delicious fare, classy, calm, contemporary environs! Went across the street to Chester's, which was packed and crazy. SO glad we were at Pascara!

I have never been one to experiment with my food choices but I went out on a limb and tried the fish tacos. They were DELICIOUS! I now make all of my friends try them when we go. Great dining experience and fun atmosphere.
