Food is very good. Nice surroundings and pleasant staff. They are known for their seafood which is excellent but a bit on the pricey side.

We've long viewed Pescara as a cut above other restaurants in Rochester. Admittedly, our last few visits are changing this perspective. Our recently Sunday brunch experience was average at best. The service staff seemed more interested in talking among themselves than attending to their guests....More

Pescara was voted best brunch around for a few years running. Their food is good and you can order delicious French Toast from the kitchen. You also get a complementary mimosa. Lobster Bisque is good as long as they have lobster in it.

Best Halibut I've ever had! It's pretty expensive, but it's to be expected, seeing as how it is halibut! Their brunch is great too!

Dined late on a week night. The service was just right - food pretty good. Presentation fine & didn't tryto rush us even though it was getting late. Rissoto was a bit crunchy and my colleagues choices slightly over salted.
