Went for lunch and had the shrimp tacos. Absolutely delicious. Two big tacos with plenty of shrimp piled on tasty Asian slaw. It was after one and so not too busy so I was surprised it took so long to get my meal....over 40 minutes. Server was very nice. What I did not enjoy was the coffee and the iced... More

My husband and I dined here on a Thursday night. I had the Blackened Mahi special which was served on a shrimp risotto. My husband had the lobster bisque and the linguini del mare. We shared a side of roasted asparagus. All were fresh, well-cooked, and delicious. The sevice was very good.

We were staying at the Kahler Hotel and walked the skyways to get there for lunch. The shrimp tacos and salmon were excellent. We would love to go back for a dinner.

Pescara is a "must stop" when I'm in Rochester, MN. Food (both quality and presentation), service and atmosphere are exceptional. (And I rarely use the word "exceptional" when describing a restaurant!) However, occasionally they have too heavy a hand with the salt shaker. What I'm talking about is: all you can taste is the clang, clang of too much salt.... More

We have eaten at Pescara's a few times now. My husband had called ahead and asked for a nice table/location since it was our anniversary. We were seated in a corner at a table that was so small that when the waiter would bring things we were constantly having to rearrange everything on the table top to make room. The... More

Morning breakfast buffet is quite good. Luncheon specials @$10 are right-sized for mid-day. Dinners -- seafood - Halibut, Walleye, Salmon, Shrimp & Garlic. Great. A good selection of Single Malt Scotch (Lagavoulin).

This is a restaurant we frequent about four or five times a year. The only reason is not a "5" is the price. In Rochester a meal for two, with wine, at $100+ is considered pricey. The food is always delicious with excellent presentation. The service is excellent and you feel like the only patron that the wait-staff has for... More

We had breakfast, lunch and room service from Pescara. The food was excellent. All of the wait staff we met were friendly and very helpful with knowledge of the immediate area. If you go for lunch, you might want to make a reservation, the place was packed! Seemed like a top choice lunch option for the surrounding business community and... More
