Only choice for seafood in Rochester

One of the things we miss living in the midwest is access to great seafood. Pescara consistently has fresh fish and is our choice when we need a seafood fix.

We ate lunch here last Friday, what a great choice! There were so many lovely choices, we ended up getting the mushroom risotto as a side dish to share. We ordered the salmon and the specialty seafood dish called Pappardelle di Mare. Everything was awesome, including the bread and drinks!

An upscale restaurant with a very good selection of adult beverages to match your mood and taste. The wait staff tries to make the visit friendly and warm without being too obvious.

This place remains the solid best choice for upscale. The reviews on TA are accurate and while a few people didn't have great service or meals, the majority are happy with both. Personally, my only knock on this place is the bar staff and while attentive, are way more focused on the full menu than on bar items or drinks... More

I ate solo while on a business trip and had the "local" fish which was walleye. As the waitress explained comes from Canada as the state doesn't allow it to be fished. I can't validate her story, but knew I had to at least try the fish. I was mild and tasty with a lemon sauce. They serve great bread... More

Very nice that this restaurant stays open during the holiday season. Great breakfasts and dinners, and a nice wine selection at the bar. A pleasure to visit during our hotel stay.
