Excellent, excellent food. Chef Raffe did an outstanding job overseeing his kitchen. My fiancée had the chicken parm and I had the crab ravioli which was very tasty. The service was ok and the atmosphere was a bit noisy for my tastes. We couldn't understand the server over the noise, let alone engage in a conservation without yelling. Overall, a... More

Where to start, Staff was just outstanding, warm friendly and very accommodating.(east coast should take a few lessons) The food was prepared with a lot of love and care! The pasta and sea food dishes we just perfect! The Breakfasts items were just outrageous! The wife loved their fresh veggie drinks. Not a huge menu but everything is soooo fresh....... More

Good food and nice staff. Warm olive appetizer is not to miss. Fettuccini is worth trying. Very convenient for lunch or dinner though it is busier during dinner.

I ordered a ham and cheese Omelet and couldn't even finish it since the Omelet was so huge! Service was fast, friendly and efficient. Good way to start the day. A bit pricey, but huge portions!

Having an early lunch with a business partner. As a local he recommend Pescatore's close to the hotel where I am staying. I got there early to read the paper and sit on the sidewalk, people watching. Parking on the street or across the street. I had the prosciutto and asparagus with lemon, olive oil and rock salt. Excellent! I... More

This restaurant is not well laid out. Whenever the front door of the hotel to which it is attached is open certain tables, numbers 12 and 11? are in a wind tunnel. You can tell which they are as the diners have their coats on. I had the clam chowder. No where in the USA have I had such a... More

Very charming little place in a touristy area. The food was good, although the menu was a little small. The great character of this place made it a success.

So we went here while staying at the Sheraton. It was ok. Pasta required Parmesan and the chicken had very little flavour. The steak was good but tasted like it was flavour salted. Pasta special was simply blah. The best part was the lovely Australian hostess. Our waiter thought he knew more about wine than he did and recommended a... More

We stayed at the Tuscan adjoining this wonderful restaurant. We ended up going there the 2 nights we were in SFO. The seafood and pasta dishes are excellent and superb value for money. Cannot fault anything.

Hello knw239! What a delight to read your review about the two nights spent at Pescatore! Being from Brissy, I am sad to learn I missed meeting some fellow Aussies! With such awesome seafood in Australia, I know it's high praise when Australian visitors have great things to say about our seafood! Thank you so much for your super feedback... More
