“Excellent Resturante”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

Wife had business in Oakland and we made reservations at Pestatore's. Our waiter was excellent, allowed us to customize our dinner to accomadate our dietary needs. Food was true Italian and very good. Great setting and view over the marina. We will be going back.

“Great Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Excellent food, especially the 'Pasta de la Casa' with extra sauce. The Veal Chop which may not be on the menu is also incredible.

“Quiet dinner for two”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

After a day touring in the Marin area we stopped at one of our favorite places for dinner on our way home. It has been a while since we visited Il Pescatore - for about 30 years this place has been a favorite for family dinners around the holidays, such as Easter or Mothers Day. Family has dispersed now, so not as many opportunities any more. We knew the place had changed hands, and wondered how things were now - we were pleasantly surprised! Décor has been updated, and our favorite waiter, Nasir, is still 'in the house'.
Yes, prices have gone up, but the food is still delicious. My wife had the Halibut special, and I had one of my favorites: Linguini Pescatore - both were delicious.
Yes, we could have spent a lot less money at one of the newer places in the Square, but we have tried some of them and the service and food is just so - so. Kincaids and Scott's are about the same price range and we just don't get the same atmosphere as you do at Il Pescatore.

“Not What It Used To Be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Our last experience was a disappointment. High prices and mediocre food and service. It's in a great location in Jack London Square, right on the water, a wonderful atmosphere. But compared with all the new options they are really falling behind.

“Nice, quiet, relaxing ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

We arrived close to closing time and they let us come in and order, which was very nice. Nice view, excellent service (our fabulous waiter looked like Omar Sharif). Food was good. Nice, quiet, relaxing ambiance.
