Description: The restaurant 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.

This restaurant is right on the lake. Be sure to get an outside table close to the shore.

Prices are reasonable. The service was adequate, but no better than that.

We liked our food very much. My wife had seafood cannelloni in a fish sauce which she thought was the best meal she had on the trip. I had grilled trout. The seasoning was excellent but was almost a bit much--it came close to overwhelming the delicacy of the fish.

This is a good choice if you are on Isola Pescatori.

Nice location, average food, but tables are tiny and waiters take forever to respond. You'd think ten times before asking the waiter for a new order.

Not ultra luxury but fully representative of this wonderful little 'Fisherman's' island sheltering off the shores of Lake Maggiore close to Stresa.

The menu unsurprisingly was local lake caught fish, which could be evidenced by it's freshness of taste and colour. It was simple but ever so good making a refreshing change from the more complicated fancy offerings so often the norm in fish restaurants.

The service was friendly and the atmosphere really good. Good value. Good place to experience.

a thruly romantic restaurant, even a place where do a business lunch.
from Stresa Carciano to isola Pescatori by tiny private boat, an interesting promenade around the isle and a glass of prosecco (italian sparkling wine) offered by the restaurant team.

With my friends, we ended up in this cute restaurant in the little island dei pesciatori. We managed to be on the terasse. Servers were a bit messy. We waited a bit too much to get served coz the restaurant was full but the food was really good. We tried different kind of fresh fishes. We had fried fishes, grilled fishes and fish with cognac. The quality was really good and we rediscovered the taste of fresh, good and simply cooked fish. We really enjoyed our meal, saying after each bite: whoaw that's so good! (I must admit we rarely eat fish coz we are from an Alpin city, so it is maybe easier to impress us with good fishes but still, it was really tasty!) There is many fish restaurants on this island. This one is a good one with fair value.
