We have been to Al Pescatore on a number of occasions and the food is always of a high standard and very tasty. Service was good as always but it would have been a nice touch to have a few heaters present as the whole restaurant was freezing cold.

Food was good, service also but a little over priced. Chicken liver starter special was great. Alfredo pasta with chicken ok but Alfredo is normally ham or bacon.

Im glad you loved my special liver starter. As for the Alfredo , It states on the menu that its Chicken and mushroom pasta , Yet as all our pastas are fresh made , we would have been very happy to make you a ham and mushroom Alfredo. Please ask us next time :) Trevor. More
