We are never disappointed wth the variety of options at Pescatores. Every time we visit our kids who live around the corner we plan a trip or take out. From their homemade pastas to their gluten free seafood risotto each bite is delicious. Their seafood is fresh and is served in a variety of ways.the pasta is cooked to perfection.

I was excited a few years back when I heard that Pescatore was opening in Ball Square. We are big seafood fans and live 100 steps from this place. The first time we went there were 6 of us. Me my wife and 4 children and everyone was excited. It was immediately clear that our waiter, tall guy with a... More

Coming from NY I appreciate good pizza. And while this restaurants boasts other meals, I decided to try their pizza. If I had to review this place sole my on that I would give this 2.5 stars. But I will update my review once I have a full dinner there. As for the pizza, the ingredients seemed laid on, with... More

Love, love, love this place. Went there as a group for my birthday because I knew everyone could find something delicious. I had steak tips with garlic-sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes. Best I have ever had. Cooked perfectly and falling-apart tender. Delicious marinade. Others had lobster ravioli with a seafood sauce, fettuccini Alfred with pan sautéed chicken, linguine with clams...everyone... More

This restaurant, in an out of the way corner of Ball Square, is one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. Being somewhat old and decrepit, my wife and I often want to have a nice dinner in a quiet place where we can actually hear each other speak. That requirement, 'quiet', is very difficult to find within Davis Square, which obviously... More

On a warm summer evening my husband,son and I decided to go to our local favorite restaurant Pescatore to cool off an enjoy a simple meal. We started with a shared appetizer of mussels with a chosen broth of garlic and oil that arrived with a perfect presentation of tiny, delectable shellfish fanned out on a plate. The broth was...

Went here on a Sunday afternoon for lunch with a big group. The restaurant is not that big so we took up much of the space. We had good service and solid food. We ordered a range of dishes, including many of their homemade pastas. We also got a variety of appetizers for the table. All of the food was... More

The sign on the window suggests brunch is a new offering. My wife and I had the "classic" breakfast. We asked for breakfast sausage. We received Italian sausage cooked in oil with thin sliced green/red peppers. Tasty and somewhat spicy from the meat. Potato is the sole type of hash which were quite similar to home fries except no "crunch".... More

I didn't go into Pescatore for the longest time because originally it had been this little hole in the wall fish restaurant, run by a brother and two sisters, taken over from their Dad. I loved that place, they were friendly and I ask you, where can you get a fish sandwich for $3.25, that hangs way over the bun...nowhere... More
