The food was good, but dinner for two without drinks, (its a BYOB place) Pesto Penne with 3 grilled shrimp and Linquini with Clam sauce and two salads (everything is ala Carte ) shouldn't cost $80.

Non- pasta entree's $30 to $40. It was expensive but the food was good. Fresh Italian bread with oil or butter. Four of our party had fish entrees which were very good. One person had pasta which they thought was average. The service was good and the owner or manager was very friendly. No outdoor seating but the indoor seating... More

It has been a year since we ate here and I'm happy to say the food is still top notch. My wife ordered the seared scallops with risotto, I had the baked salmon and our teenage granddaughter had the mac&cheese. We all thought our meals were excellent. I must also mention the bread which is especially good. Service was good,... More

Great service, I loved my meal. I had their lobster ravioli. Had nice pieces of lobster in the sauce. Absolutely delicious.

We dined here for our last evening. Having enjoyed all sorts of crabs and other seafood, we were in the mood for Italian. The carpaccio with sautéed mushrooms was wonderful. The filet mignon ordered medium rare arrived quite rare. Chef was a bit light with seasoning, almost everything required salt. Service was excellent.

We stopped for a late dinner having heard from a neighbor that we should go here, and, Pescecanne is always ready for pasta. I had the steamed garlic clams with chiorizo...they were cooked perfectly tender...that's not always easy to do I like veal and chicken...opted for the Veal Milanese...a great choice and cooked perfectly Jersey Shore Caramel Ice Cream finished...

Excellent dinner menu with great service. The Ossobuco ravioli was handmade and absolutely delicious! My wife's lobster ravioli was equally good. The fresh motz prosciutto appetizer also a must try. Great restaurant for Italian/seafood. Kid friendly.

Plentiful, delicious portions. Good service. Bad news is that it's getting to be better known, which means reservations are now necessary in season.

This restaurant came highly recommended by a local business owner, we were told to try out. We are foodies and love fine dining and food better then we can make at home! When greeted, we were treated like a King and Queen, as soon as we ordered our food, we didn't see the waitress again except to get our check!... More
