We stayed at The Tuscan attached to the restaurant so it was extremely convenient for us, but even so, the service was terrific and the breakfasts were excellent. We also enjoyed the dinner we ate there one night! Prices were fair considering how pricey everything in San Fran is!

We went there everyday while staying at the attached hotel. I thought the food was great we had breakfast which was perfect and quick. Also the late night menu, pizza is yummy! We had amazing service at night from Charles and the young Irish man. It had a great friendly atmosphere.

We really enjoyed the fresh seafood at Pescatore, from the curry mussels to the cioppino. However, the restaurant is SO loud, it's hard to enjoy a conversation over dinner. The service from our waiter was polite, but he seemed inattentive to how to set the table, where to place incoming dishes and how to clean up afterward. Sloshes and spills... More

Hi Rolodexia, Thanks for your review! While I'm very pleased to hear you enjoyed our seafood, I'm sorry to hear you didn't thoroughly enjoy your experience. Unfortunately, Pescatore can get a little loud at times, especially during our busiest dinner hours when the restaurant is full. We have brought on quite a few new staff members recently and I will... More

Our Concierge from another Fisherman's Wharf hotel recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Friendly staff and good food made for a great evening. It is a hidden gem unless you are staying at Best Western Plus Tuscan Hotel

Our server, whose name embarrassingly escapes me, really tipped the experience over the top from average to very good. He was superb! I have to say that he handmade a Bloody Mary that remains unparalleled, so the meal started on a high note. We ordered the Rustica Flatbread, the Bolognese, and the organic salad with balsamic dressing. The crust on... More

Hi Agatha56, Aren't our bloody marys awesome! You can't really go wrong with that straight off the bat. I'm trying to put my finger on who your server was, so we can pass along this great review.

If you are near Fisherman's Wharf, Pescatore is a place to try! Much better than the large commercial "tourist trap" restaurants on the Wharf, this is a wonderful small and intimate restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner with their wood-burning oven. It was near our hotel and once we discovered it, we ate their frequently. Our waitress for dinner, Mary,... More

Hi Tina! Mary is an awesome server, we are so lucky to have her and I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed your service and came back so many times. Pescatore is in a great location. Nestled nicely in Fisherman's Wharf but not on the main drag, where it gets too crazy. We love it here! Thank you for your... More

Our American cousins took us here. The fish meal was excellent & cost us then US$90.00 for 4 of us with two courses each with wine. One of our party did not like their wine so this was exchanged immediately without any quibble. Staff were lovely & very welcoming. Would come again if in area.

Hi Evieroselily! Thank you for review! I'm very happy to hear that you choose well with us! It is always pleasing to get great feedback about Pescatore. I'm glad that the member of your party was able to switch out the wine for something a little more pleasing to them. Please come visit us again sometime in the near future!... More
