Awesome experience, phenomenal service! Shout out to Ruth. Appetizers were very delicious and sized nicely. The tuna poke was average, needed some other flavor to accent the sesame oil. Lobster wraps were average, expected more of a mango accent. Asian pear salad was awesome. By...More

So 4th of July weekend is very crowded and getting a reservation anywhere is difficult. Chesca's, for the most part, doesn't take reservations. And guess what -- it works!! A relatively short wait for a party of 4 (during peak time) allowed us to enjoy...More

July 4th weekend is crazy in Edgartown but was able to get a table late. There is a great bar that you can get a drink before dinner. Dinner was very good. Recommend mussles if you love them.

Menu was a bit limited to mainly pasta dishes. Nothing out of the ordinary and very expensive for what you get. We would have been better off just ordering a pizza from a pizza shop.More

Wow, this is hard to read, we are sorry that had a poor experience. I wonder, could you have confused us with another restaurant? Our menu has 12 appetizers, only one is pasta..... Gnocchi with gorganzola, wild mushrooms and sage. We offer 5 salads. Out...More

We visited Chesca's based on a couple recommendations but it was not memorable. Red wine was served hot, the dishes we ordered were just okay, but enjoyed the vibrant atmosphere.More

The Italian food was good. The atmosphere is nice. The place is not pretentious at all. Good variety of food and pasta. Highly recommend the Italian specials
