Like this cozy Italian restaurant not only because of easy access location also because of very good food. I have never eaten such a wonderfully cooked salmon and even my son ate it when he was 18 months old! Very well decorated and kept warm with good management...Always reasonable pricing and nice cocktails...

It's a small NYC restaurant with tables really close together but it was cozy and they decorated nicely for the holiday season. Lived the fish and we really loved the flatbreads. Good experience here, we'd go back again.

Second ave is not the gourmet center of Manhattan. Nice fun places with young crowds. At this place I was underwhelmed in every way. Average decor, average or less service, at bet average food. It is not expensive so I guess thats a plus.

Reliably great food. The prices are super reasonable. Not the same "at home" vibe of prior visits but there is a new lead partner. You can always count on a good meal and fresh food.

My family and I went to this restaurant last night. There was no ambience. It was very plain which would have been acceptable if the food had been outstanding. I eat out a lot and know good food and service. We ordered 3 apps for 5 people. The mushroom balls, were nothing special, the ricotta; nice and creamy but not... More

We walked past the parade of restaurants and bars on 2nd Ave while out for a stroll from our nearby hotel. As we have eaten already, we decided to come back the next evening. It was coming to the end of Happy Hour and we chose Pescatore because we were in the mood for Italian. This choice proved to be... More

Had a wonderful meal in this restaurant and booked it for a wedding rehearsal dinner and breakfast the day after the wedding. Both were outstanding!!! The manager, Jake, could not have been more helpful and accomodating. He took time to understand each event and set up seating and made menu suggestions accordingly. The food was super fresh, delicious, and the... More

Just back from having a meal here. Honestly if I could score it 6 out of 5 I would. I've been in NYC for almost a week now and this is by far the best dining experience I've had. The service is excellent and the food super tasty. What I loved more than anything was its relaxed atmosphere and that... More

I We came across Pescatore because it was close to our hotel and decided to give it a try. The atmosphere is that of a local, storefront, Italian bistro. The service was friendly and the timing of the courses was perfect. The menu is standard Italian classics which, most importantly, were well prepared. I really appreciated the the ability to...
