“not exactly the best in town...”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

we went for the lobster pasta and it was only ok for the price we paid! we ate there 2x but the 1st time we went because the reviews here. 4 adults and one toddler. Of course we wanted different dishes but the waitress kindly suggested we try ordering more similar dishes because they were full (it was EARLY and not full yet!) and the burners were all occupied, by ordering the same dishes it wouldn't take as long... we never heard such silliness before! we were polite and obliged without ordering EXACTLY the same...there were equally good restaurants on the main restaurant street!

“The best seafood”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Great seafood, lots of fresh fish which they will show you and tell you about before you order. They will cook it anyway you like. The seafood salad is unbelievable, as is the swordfish carpacchio. The past dishes are excellent as well. The house wines are very nice... friendly staff. We ate here 3 times in one week!!

“Great food, perfect view!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Il Pescatore was recommended to us by some locals as a good place to go for fish dishes. This turned out to be a great tip, so that we had to return there for a second time during our 10 days holiday.
The grilled fish was great, as well as ravioli and spaghetti with sea food.
Waiters were friendly and able to communicate in English and French.
The view is also worth mentioning. The restaurant is located right next to the Cala Gonone port, so when seated outside you can watch the boats and have a great view of the promenade and the sea!

“The food was ok, but not spectacular.”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We left somewhat disappointed and not fully satisfied.
The shrimp didn't seem very fresh.
The staff was nice though.

“everything was great!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We are russian turists and we visited ristorant Il pescatore and we were really satisfied! As starter we had oysters, were excellent! Than we ate the best pasta with lobster ever and two big sea basses, everyone on another way, one was grilled and the other one with white wine and tomates, the fish was surely fresh and really delicious. The service was absolutelly ok! What we relly didn't expected there was waiter who speaks russian so she could advise us.
If you stay in Calagonone you have to go to this ristorant, really lovely place!
