Truly authentic Italian Restaurant

We were only in Southend for one night so checked TripAdvisor for restaurant recommendations and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant was busy which I always think is a good sign and the food and service were wondertul. Would definitely go again.

8 of us ate here for our Mother's Day meal. It was very busy, but we were seated quickly to our booked table. The food was amazing, and everybody enjoyed their meals. My 2 children (5 & 4) thoroughly enjoyed their pasta and meatballs and the ice-cream was delicious. Would recommend to everyone.

My Daughter and I went for dinner last night, it was superb! The food, the service, everything was 5 star. The Garlic Bread was freshly made, the pasta was fresh and the sauce with our dishes was so tasty! We will be back!

Visiting here is like stepping back into the past where you could feel like one of the family. The food is authentic Italian home cooking and the ambience is of bygone Italian life which in today's society is a breath of fresh air. Well done Salvatore for maintaining this over many years and not being swept into the new culture.... More

We don't think this old established authentic Italian/Sicilian restaurant really needs our comments as noticed a lot of clientele return as we do, but we just want to say if you are not aware it is in Queens Road Southend, off the beaten track from the chain restaurants, detour, explore and try it. The decor in the main restaurant hasn't... More

Every time we visit our son we go to Il Pescatore and have never been disappointed - the food, the wine, the service, the atmosphere are excellent. Our only complaint would be the cost of the vegetables but, as they are cooked to perfection, we shall continue to frequent this restaurant.

Having brought my family here for Mother's Day , I can only heap praise on the over all quality and customer service afforded to us by the staff. The food was of the highest quality and in my opinion very reasonably priced. My 6 month old grandson was fussed over continuously by the staff, which made the day a very... More

We booked a table of 5 adults and a highchair for mothers day, we have heard nothing but good things about this restaurant and we were certainly not disappointed. The staff were very attentive and welcoming and all showed my 7month old nephew lots of attention. The food was unbelievable, fresh and delicious. I honestly could not find fault in... More
