A five star restaurant in Rochester is not the same as one in Boston, SF, San Diego etc.
However the food was very good. There was an interesting wine list. Even had a 2014 Verite which shows that they are trying. Nice friendly helpful staff. If in Rochester a few days, definitely one to hit.

Always an enjoyable and delicious dining experience at Pescara! No matter what the occasion you always feel special! I had the shrimp and my husband had scallops, both dishes were delicious and presented beautifully. The brussel sprouts were the best!!

Very nice, if a little pricey. Everything is a la carte so you can create the perfect meal, from the preparation method, to the sauce, to the sides. I love fresh fish and opted for the portion of the menu devoted to the chef’s specialties. A treat, to be sure. But don’t overlook the Wild Mushroom Risotto.

We went for dinner on Friday 11/9. We had tickets to a comedy show at the Civic Center and thought we would give Pescara a try. We are locals and can't believe we have never tried Pescara. It was the best meal we have ever had in Rochester. My wife had the sea bass and gouda hashbrowns and I had the rib eye and asparagus. My wife's fish was so fresh and the rib eye was tender and very flavorful. Our server was attentive but not over bearing. We highly recommend Pescara and will be back soon!!!
