My wife and I had heard great things about the restaurant. But the reviews understated the fine meal and service we enjoyed. This experience was one of my top 3 meals of all time.

For an excellent dining experience, we whole-heartedly recommend Pescara. The food was five-star and the service outstanding. The restaurant is conveniently located within the Doubletree by Hilton Rochester/Mayo Clinic. Be sure to order the coffee ice cream as an after dinner treat!

Delicious seafood, overshadowed by management not concerned about feedback from customers. Entering a half empty restaurant and then being seated almost in the kitchen was so insulting but management could care less!More

We ate here twice in three weeks, and it was consistently good. The calamari was excellent and the fish entrees very good. Always enjoy our dinners at Pescara! Excellent service as well.
