When on an overnight stay for Mayo Clinic visit a couple of years ago, we had a wonderful dinner here. Now on another overnight visit, we went back. It was just as good or maybe even better than we remembered. We arrived early (before dining room opened) , sat at the bar and enjoyed wine and an appetizer. Then we moved to a table for the main meal. The cioppino and fresh (very) Alaskan halibut were exceptional. Prices are higher than most other restaurants here, but the quality of the food and the outstanding service (from Trenton) justify the prices.

"Nothing but positives for Pescara on this visit! I joked with the waitress (who provided efficient and pleasant service) that I felt like I had left Rochester entirely when I entered their door."

"My family is so picky that we rarely dine out in Rochester. The service and food quality just aren't typically worth the effort...Except for Pescara. So many wonderful choices on the menu. We really enjoy the Cioppino. It's just the best we've had--and we've eaten at some of the finest seafood places on the West coast.
I highly recommend Pescara. Wonderful atmosphere and the service is good"

"This is a fabulous restaurant. Four well-traveled diners from Washington, DC found themselves at the Mayo Clinic at the same time. After some research we chose Pescara. It was a delight, and I wish they would open a branch near me."

"We just had two wonderful meals here. Dinner with oysters and halibut was scrumptious. The oysters were icy cold and very fresh. Hard to do in Minnesota! The halibut was the tastiest I have ever eaten.
The next morning I had the egg white scramble. I eat a lot of egg whites and this is the best preparation I have ever had. This is really a fine restaurant."

"Pescara is one of my favorite restaurants in Rochester. The service is always outstanding and the food is amazing! For lunch, I recommend the fish tacos with sweet potato fries...delicious. For dinner, I love the halibut. Oh, and if you like desserts, their bread pudding is incredible. I would highly recommend Pescara."
