A word from Pescatori Italian & Seafood Restaurant - Fitzrovia
The best of seafood gets an Italian flavour at the Pescatori Fish and Seafood Restaurant in London’s chichi Fitzrovia neighbourhood, just off of Goodge Street. Always busy and buzzing, modern meets traditional in Pescatori’s comfortable, unpretentious dining room in which the local workforce, shoppers and canny Londoners have found a real treat – great, high quality food served with a smile and a high degree of professionalism too, making Pescatori perfect for those lunchtime business meetings. Fanatical about fish, Pescatori carefully selects the produce it serves, determined to offer flavour while supporting small scale businesses and promoting ethical seafood, an approach bound to impress greenies and foodies both. For example, crab and sea bass is taken directly from a family run business in Cornwall while you’ll enjoy a seasonally changing menu as well as super fresh Catch of the Day options.

    I had previously eaten in the Mayfair Pescatori and was a little apprehensive at changing venues., especially considering some of the reviews were not encouraging. I should not have worried. The reception was polite and efficient. The service excellent, and not 'too attentive'. Although I might have wanted a little more calories, the food was beautifully cooked and very tasty. The wine choice made by the waitress was very good, and far from the most expensive bottle on the list. We would eat there again.

    Delightful lunchtime meal with a fussy food eater. She wanted to try the mushroom Risotto but felt she ought to have seafood. We asked the chef if he would add seafood to the risotto and it was delicious. Perfect service in my view we'll done Pescatori

    Good food over all - though the lobster had a yukky sauce on it - but over-priced. 4 pounds for a bottle of mineral water is ridiculous.

    The food was good. However, one aspect of the service was poor. The waitress knocked over a beer bottle on the table, spilling about half the contents. She needed to be prompted, twice, to provide a complimentary replacement, which was then added to the bill! This is not a good customer service ethos and I won't be going back.

    Cannot praise the staff at this restaurant enough. They were extremely friendly, helpful and made the whole experience fun. The food was excellent and worth the money, although the wine was very good quality, did find it was a little pricey. Would definately recommend to others.

    I booked this Restaurant through e-mail and was delighted with the welcome we received when we arrived, It had a wonderful selection of food and each one of us was delighted with our choice. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend. We were not at all rushed and although it is mainly seafood there was choices on the menu for anyone who is not a fish lover. Will be back.

    This is a rather expensive inner London restaurant. Food is very good, although it's necessary to order a 'side' if you want to fill up. The bill for two of us (one not drinking) was £90, although we got £19 off with the Open Table discount. I would not have been too happy with the un-discounted price. Service was good, although an 'optional' 12.5% service was put on the bill (I prefer not to have this added - I should be left to choose). Ambience was fine. We enjoyed the meal but I won't be rushing back.

    The menu is extensive and sometimes I feel I have too much choice. The service here is the best in London. The atmosphere is Summer as in winter is a relaxed chilled but buzzy vibe and is at a reasonable price for central London. You get good sized portions and the outside seating is lovely as it is still undercover!

    Took my mother to lunch at Pescatori on Charlotte Street recently. Hadn't been in forever and was happy to find that the standards had not slipped. Both our pasta dishes were delicious and my affogato was perfectly executed. It shouldn't be difficult but why is it that so many restaurants manage to spoil this Italian classic? The restaurant also dealt respectfully and tactfully over confusion with the bill, so bonus points there too. Bravo.

    I came across this restaurant as I was looking for somewhere with an offer and would 100% come back and pay full price. The service and food was really good I went for the salmon tartare and the cod which were both really good. My partner went for the crab and avocado followed by the seafood ravioli - this was amazing!! Look forward to returning.

    This is my second outing at Pescatori and I was even more impressed. I took my friend here to celebrate her new job and she just loved it. The service was impeccable, we were treated like queens. We managed to get a table outside on the terrace and it just added to the experience. Dominique has a wonderful staff! The food was impeccable, particularly the Fritto Misto. Thank you for another wonderful dining experience.

    Nice meal and very reasonable with the discount included. A selection of 50cl wines is also helpful as one of us was not drinking. Small critisim that my Dover Sole was a little small and maybe a choice of mash as well as chipo or new potatoes would have been good.

    I have been to Pescatori occasionally for a few years now. When I first went it was a very nice Italian, now it is a really good Italian. The menu has some great dishes. As it was a warm evening I decided on a cold main, lobster salad. It was excellent. Washed down with a very nice carafe of Gavi di Gavi. Great service too. I will be back.

    I had a wonderful experience here with my partner. Everything was perfect and I don't know how it could have been improved. From giving us a large and comfortable booth, the attentive, lively and warm service to the beautiful table settings. The atmosphere was relaxed and we were well looked after. The food is exquisite. Calamari, crab and lobster all expertly cooked - we couldn't stop commenting how good the food was throughout our dinner. The wine list is commendable. We treated ourselves to a cheese board, the selection of cheeses was probably the best I've had lately - for the variety and complexity of flavours.The price reflects the quality, we would dine here more if we could! It was a brilliant way to celebrate my partner's birthday!

    Good food (lobster and chips) and friendly staff but we found the prices quite high for this level of restaurant. It was very crowded and noisy when we arrived on Friday lunchtime (around 1.45pm). The restaurant would benefit from some noise-absorbing materials. The toilets are clean and tidy but the staircase leading to them is very steep and unsuitable for disabled people.

    We visited Pescatori whilst on a short stay in London using our Tesco Club Card Vouchers. My son enjoys food and it was a chance for him to experience a great seafood restaurant and he wasn't disappointed! The service was great and the staff were friendly, offering great advice and attentive. The food was excellent! It's not the type of restaurant we would normally frequent due to the price but with the vouchers it was a fantastic treat! I would highly recommend a visit to anyone and it is definitely somewhere I would be delighted to visit again.

    We were excited to go and try this restaurant as there are few very good seafood reataurants in london. We were able to get a booking very easily. We were given a round table for 4 in a very obscure place by the bar. We asked for another table but were told they were all booked (even though they were still free when we left). The crab bruschetta for £10.50 was small and very poor value! I had a whole seabream for main... It was ok but what you could do at home. The side dishes were terrible. Service was a lot to be desired too. Overall a very disappointing experience

    We love to dine outside when the weather permits it and were very pleased to find a nice restaurant in London that provided tables on a street side terrace. The menu showed a wide range of Italian sea food. I found the Jersey oysters delicious. Our waitress was not only adorable but also a woman that knew what she was "selling". Very helpfull. Next time we are in London we will definitely go again. Even when the terrace is closed. PS watch out for the pasta: the portions are huge!

    We sat on the small street side terrace white table cloths and plant pots separated us from Fitzrovia but we could have been a hundred miles away, sparkling service from friendly staff. We took ages over a glass of prosecco to study the menu because there was so much that appealed. I had grilled calamari and my husband had crab bruchetta to start both lovely and then lobster spaghetti and crab& lobster burger. again delicious. The sweet gnocchi was surprisingly good and light and the Italian cheese plate worth coming for on its own. Well worth a visit well cooked modern Italian fish.
