If you want a really fantastic italian meal this is the real deal .Forget the chain restaurants as in Italy people always eat at the family run places and this is reflected in quality and service.It reminds me of the trattoria style places often found in Rome that you never forget Try Il Pescatore as you will experience a true...

As a returning customer at Il Pescatore not only have I enjoyed the atmosphere with my partner but also as a large group. The waiter's and waitresses have a great sense of humor and have always kept us entertained with dancing and writing bespoke messages on... More

What an amazing restaurant! Myself and partner booked a table on a Sat eve for a date night. It was my first visit to Il Pescatore and will not be my last. The staff and surroundings are so warming and atmosphere is exactly what you want from an Italian/Sicilian restaurant. The food was exquisite and wine was stunning. Think I... More

This is an independant restaurant on one of the small roads in Southend. It is small, but has a very relaxed atmosphere, and has been furnished in a traditionally Italian way - walls are lined with wine bottles, etc. The food is fantastic. We started with tomato garlic bread, which I could not put down! We all enjoyed our main... More

We had the greatest meal we have ever had in an Italian restaurant ever here. The food is beyond reproach. The Chianti is wonderful and the service superb. Try the homemade Minestrone soup. We had veal and chicken dishes with beautiful cooked fresh vegetables. We were so full, we couldn't manage the deserts. We went on a Wednesday night and... More

Although we live in Southend, this was our first visit to Il Pescatore - a Saturday lunchtime. I have absolutely no complaints about the food in this restaurant. My son had pizza zorro off the menu and I had rigatoni matriciana - both extremely tasty. I know one goes to a restaurant to eat and obviously the food is very... More

My wife and I went here for dinner this week on the spur of the moment. We used to go quite often a few years ago but hadn't been back for a while. When we arrived the place was half empty and the man behind the till carried on counting his cash. We didn't feel particularly welcome but we were... More

I have to say this is one the best restaurants I have eaten in, the quality of food is excellent. My second visit in two weeks. The have a good selection of starters and mains with lots of different specials. I would recommend the beef Stromboli and the garlic bread is on another planet. Service is great and the staff...
