This is my 3rd time at Chesca's. They have a diverse menu and great service. It is a mix of Italian and local seafood. They have a nice porch where you can have a cocktail while waiting for a table. Even when its busy, the service is quick and accurate. They give you warm bread with olive oil when you sit down and the servers are attentive. Make sure you get Steve. He is from the Vineyard and knows how to make your meal memorable and pleasurable. Nothing better than having a good server especially when you are hungry and had to wait for a table. The food is consistent and fresh. The prices are reasonable for the Vineyard. I highly recommend it.

We had some of our best meals on our vacation at Chesca's. They don't take reservations, so I would advise arriving early if you want to avoid waiting. The food was very good, but the atmosphere is rather dark and loud, and it is expensive.

after waiting over an hour and watching several table site empty for over an hour we were told that there are only tow tables in the place they would seat a party of 5. they had no interest in making a 4 or 6 seat table work. we watched them turn other diners away with empty tables. The worst hostess system I have seen in years. The food was quite good and the wait staff was excellent but did not compensate for the service up front

Had dinner here on Sunday night. No reservations and it fills up fast in the summer. The gnocchi app is delicious! The grilled romaine salad and short ribs were my choice as I wasn't in the mood for seafood. I was happy with both. Overall a very nice experience. If you have to wait there is a great porch with rocking chairs so you can pass the time with a drink and people watch. Would definitely go back.

We had an amazing dinner at Cesca's. They do not take reservations but the meal and atmosphere was well worth the wait. Sitting in the porch taking in the night atmosphere makes the wait fly by. Do not miss the gnocchi appetizer. It was amazing. A couple at a nearby table ordered extra to take home. The halibut was cooked perfectly, the service very good and the wine list reasonable. If visiting for a weekend or a week this is a must for dinner
