Had an excellent lunch today at Pescara. As usual we like to go and have what ever the special is and today it was a wonderul tuna burger. In addition, I had probably the best chicken wings I have had in Rochester. Neither the burger or the wings were sad, but on the contrary they were bigly delicious.

This is a primarily sea food place, but they are very good at what they do. They recently were awarded the best steak in the city by a local magazine, so they have all the bases covered. If you are visiting from out of town and would like fresh sea food flown in each day,,,,this is the spot! Nice bar... More

Although their specialty is fish, they have a few meat dishes but we did not try them. The fish dishes were excellent. We ordered two side dishes, risotto with mushrooms and brussel sprouts, both of which are good, too, but huge so order just one or two of them for the table of several diners. Dessert wines and unusual ice... More

We went to Pescara a day after Valentine day, but they were still running the specials. The salmon we had was excellent . And the service was great. Also if you are at Mayo clinic you can take the sky bridge to the Double tree lobby ( I think) and walk right in without going outside. Would come back again... More

It's not often that I would call a dining experience memorable. We had fantastic, well-timed service by Ashley and an outstanding meal of food that was expertly prepared. Our wine was fabulous. For dinner, Hubby had Cioppino and I had huge shrimp sautéed in garlic oil and micro cilantro over linguine. We both ate every single bite, not willing to... More

If you're looking for an extraordinary lobster bisque or the freshest seafood around, give Pescara a try. It is without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Rochester. The service is top notch and the atmosphere is inviting - for couples or small groups. Be sure to make reservations.

Pescara is without a doubt one of the finest restaurants in Rochester. The food is excellent. The bar is fully stocked with fine spirits and excellent wines.
