At the recommendation of our hotel concierge, my husband and I enjoyed a delightful meal at Pesce. Situated in a cute and up-and-coming part of the city, Pesce is a perfect balance between a casual tapas bar and chic Italian restaurant. After whetting our whistles with martinis at the bar, we started with the crab tower -- chunks of dungeness crab, avocado, tomato and arugula -- it was unbelievably good! We also shared the pappardelle with duck (fantastic), salted cod (very good for a "fish stew") and seafood risotto (recommended by our waitress, this was scrumptious!). We finished with a light and fluffy tiramisu which was big enough for two. I wish there was a Pesce in my neighborhood so I could go again!
