We lunched at La Pescheria and had a lovely time. The menu was varied and good value - all the dishes we ordered were excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was so nice - calm and shady and overlooking the Lake. Two lovely cats shared our fish! We returned the next evening and asked to have... More

We spent a few days on the island Pescatori. We discovered this nice restaurant while walking on the island. After a long stay on the mainland we decided this place for dinner. Even without a reservation we got a nice table. Despite many guests the service was very fast and always very attentive. The food was great. The menu is... More

We stopped off for lunch here between visiting Isola Madre and Bella. A very hot day but they gave us a nice table on the terrace, shaded by the vines and wisteria. We all enjoyed the food - I had the smoked trout and then the baked trout. Good house wine. Reasonably priced. Attentive and helpful service.

Make sure to reserve a table at night on the terrace for a fantastic view of Lake Maggiora towards Stresa. The service was great and the staff is warm and relaxed. The food was really very good. Well worth a visit.

This was not an inspired choice. We should have twigged early that we were not in for a good night. Even the plentiful number of cats happily urinating around the restaurant looked unimpressed. Food bland and likely made one of our party unwell. I hope for the restaurants sake it was a bad night because it was awful.

We got collected from the pier on the beach from the lido Palace by a private boat. After a short and comfortable boat ride we were welcomed with 2 glasses of Prosecco. We orderd starters and mains together with a great bottle of wine from the region. Food and service were top notch, complement to the young chef! With the... More

Make a reservation to eat on the terrace. The views are spectacular over looking the lake and the surrounding landscape. This is a very family friendly restaurant. The service was great, warm and friendly. The food was very good! More expensive then eating on the mainland but worth it!

Turn right off the ferry. Go just past the big restaurant on the shore and you will find this gem up a set of stairs. We had the risotto with perch and it was delicious, The rice was moist with a few strands of lemon zest and chopped chives to bring it to life. The fish was grilled and arranged... More

In the suggestive scenery of Lake Maggiore, one can admire the most characteristic island of the Borromeo Gulf; Isola Pescatori (Fishermen's Island).It is an attractive village, inhabited mainly by fishermen who still today practice the profession of their fathers and who gave name to this strip of land that interrupts the water of the lake.In this context Restaurant La Pescheria is born, the name of which originates from its activity of the early thirties.This was in fact the only fish shop of the islands: the fish that was prepared here was sold in the whole province and beyond; the fruits of an activity of an inhabited core that counted in those days around two hundred persons and whose primary activity was fishing.Today, the island counts around sixty inhabitants, but the life spirit and many other traditions have not changed through the years, for the joy of who lives here and who visits the island and shares these emotions.The daily fished fish, white fish, allis shad, lake trout and perch, are all part of the specialties that can be sampled at La Pescheria.
