You can't go wrong to have an event here! I attended an engagement party here. It's not all the bells and whistles like some banquet halls, but beautiful bar when entering prior to heading to your banquet room. The food, a delicious Italian based, pass me down family recipes, I'm sure! The gravy excellent & pasta cooked to al denté... More

Pescatore Palace is a wonderful place for a large group function. I volunteered at this fund raiser & staff were very accommodating to our every need. The variety of food served was accepted by all in attendance.

They had chicken, fish, scallop, Green Salad, Calamari salad, Calamari fried, only cheese pizza, two kinds of pasta etc. The choices were there but not the quality. Which i don't... More

Like seafood? Definitely a must try. Seafood is the star at this restaurant and our party of 4 sampled sea bass, tilapia and salmon The exterior is something out of the Godfather movies, but the interior is nicely done. One medium size dining room and several smaller dining rooms available for private parties. There were only 3 other tables occupied,... More

Took my wife there for her birthday, and was very disappointed, to say the least. Service was slow, (it was a Thursday night and the place was empty), they seated all three couples that were there in one small, loud room. Ordered a dish that was made with shrimp, clams, and mussels, and it tasted like I was eating the... More

Particularly good was was the bruschetta, focaccia, calamari and chicken breast vesuvio with perfectly roasted potatoes. Great spot for big or small events and family-run--making you feel... More

Not sure why this restaurant doesn't get more respect. The food is very good and beverage service well above average. Service is attentive and friendly.

Excellent, professional service, warm, friendly, family atmosphere and fantastic food. Vito, owner and head chef, is the best! He visits with each table, and made a point of asking what we liked and customized our order accordingly.It was also comforting to hear Italian being spoken at adjoining tables. The calamari was the best and most tender we've ever tasted. Highly... More

Pescatore Palace was recommended by our Italian friends. We were in town from Valparaiso, In & decided to try it for dinner. The appetizers & everyone's dinners were excellent. The sea bass was outstanding! Close to hotels & not a problem to park. Service was great, very attentive.
