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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "We loved our visit - the food was tasty and not too expensive. Service was lovely. Overall, a great experience."

  • "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."

  • "Was my first visit here and was very impressed. I will be looking forward to going back."

  • "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."

  • "Atmospheric fish restaurant near Googe St station. Outdoor tables on busy Charlotte St . Expensive unless using Opentable offer. Food good quality and well presented"

  • "Restaurant was stunning.Staff were superb.Service was quick and second to none. Food was delicious, especially the Lobster. We had an excellent evening for our 21st Anniversary.... Just little pricey.....you get what you pay for! Special treat"

  • "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!"
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "The food was outstanding, the wine delicious. With the Top Table 30% off food it was actually not too expensive, but this is a great venue for a special occasion! The private dining room looks amazing too, will bear that in mind for the future!"
    dined on 01/07/2014
  • "Lovely food, good service! Had a lovely evening, food was great as out waitress had knowledge of each dish if we had questions! Will definitely return!"

  • "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."
    dined on 18/06/2014
  • "This place used to be a real favourite. Not any more. Both starts were dreadful: scallops were not only EXTREMELY gritty but also cold, in a hot broth. When we complained we were told was MEANT to be like this! My starter, which claimed to be salmon tartare, was a few strips of overly salty salmon buried under fistfuls of rocket and capers. Disappointing. Next was the seafood platter. We asked to swap the razor clams for a couple of prawns or an extra oyster (something we’ve done every other visit) and were told these were too expensive - all we could have was cockles. We offered to pay extra - but we still got cockles... and again, they, the muscles and the scallops were incredibly gritty. Sadly our love affair with Pescatori is over."

  • "Had quick lunch here and will definitely come back for more . Lovely fresh fish well seasoned and beautifully prepared . Charming staff . A real gem !"
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "My partner and I arrived at 1pm had a very nice lunch food was excellent if portions were perhaps a tiny bit small but on saying that if the starter or main course were any bigger there would not have been enough room for pudding , which was worth having, so just a whinge really, service was very good. Many thanks."
    dined on 12/06/2014
  • "We were surprised by how atmospheric this lovely restaurant was. The staff was polite, helpful and friendly. LOVE the complimentary cherry tomatoes on the table. Price is on the higher end, but with the discount through OpenTable, it is affordable and well worth the money. The food was excellent; well seasoned, fresh and well-selected. Will go back again soon!"
    dined on 09/06/2014
  • "We went for dinner with the 30% off food deal. The scallop starter was dissapointing, lots of cockles and then about 3 queenies - very average. The rib eye with bone marrow sauce was good but not great. Very meagre spread of celeriac pure with it. The fish mixed grill was under seasoned and the batter whilst thin was a bit soggy. The best thing we had was an almond and blackberyy tar with mascarpone icecream. Overall a bit dissappointing but fair value with the 30% off foor deal"
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "Very pleasant food with absolutely excellent service from our waitress. She may have been Portuguese in an Italian restaurant but she made us feel at home."
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "Haven't been for a long time but pleased to find food still as delicious and the service as friendly and helpful as I remembered."
    dined on 27/05/2014
  • "great service but less exciting food at Pescatori. also without the offer a bit over priced. however the service was very good which made the evening "
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "Delicious food with a really good choice of fish and seafood dishes. Pleasant dining room although quite busy acoustics are good so it is not too noisy. Overall very enjoyable meal. "
    dined on 12/05/2014
  • "Had a nice dinner at Pescatori on a quiet early midweek evening. The food's good but not as good as it thinks it is, and the prices don't really reflect the quality. The food was certainly tasty, but I think it's got ideas slightly above its station. Might be that the location that bumps up the price. Good choice and food was well cooked but too salty (salt doesn't equal flavour!!) and the portions were a bit small. Staff were friendly & polite, but one diner was allergic to nuts & I had to keep asking if each dish was okay. I'd explained that transferable contamination is a real issue, but despite this my dessert had nuts in it & I wasn't told before AND it wasn't mentioned on the menu. Honestly not bad overall but don't expect the earth."
    dined on 12/05/2014
  • "The food here is excellent. Simple Italian dishes made with fantastic ingredients - how good Italian food should be! Service was prompt and attentive without being overbearing. Only slight downside was that our main courses arrived while we were still eating bread and olives. Pescatori is a little pricey, but not much more than you'd expect of other restaurants in the area and we certainly felt it was worth it (especially for a special occasion)."
    dined on 10/05/2014
  • "Booked with the toptable 30% off deal - food and service was excellent, staff attentive and the restaurant inside had a good ambience. I will definitely be booking here again."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyable - excellent food and ambiance"

  • "Went for dinner earlier this week and had a pleasant time buy sadly nothing to rave about. I had the tagiolini with crab and chilli which while nice didn’t taste particularly of crab or chilli. My friend had the salmon which was nice but in his words "this is art not food". The restaurant also forgot to include the 30% discount so had to ask for the bill to be amended. All in all a pleasant evening but not somewhere I feel I must return to in a hurry."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "...and service. Friendly in a good location as well. Food was lovely, all seemed very fresh and well cooked and seasoned."

  • "Had a great dinner at Pescatori's. The food was great and the service efficient yet not stuffy. Great place for entertaining customers as well as family occasions."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "The Italian restaurant is a lively one. When I was there, it was full of people. They serve typical Italian food and the service is so and so. If I have a big group, I may choose other restaurant as the service seems slow. In relate to the food quality, it is ok in general unless you order seafood dishes, which is very fresh. They also have a variety of wine list too."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "the toptable bill saved us £20 per couple. its a great value with toptable, but unlikely to visit otherwise. we have now visited this restaurant about 6 times and enjoy the good food,"

  • "Met a friend here for a catch-up and we were a bit surprised at how upmarket it was! Good food and nice surroundings in a central and convenient location. "

  • "Although I had known about Pescatori for many years I was pleased when we decided to go there for the first time for a birthday lunch as my wife and I love fish and their menu has an excellent selection of all types on their menu as well as a varied meat and vegetarian section.We both had the grilled calamari with italian sausage to start which was excellent .My wife could not resist trying the Lobster and Crab burger and I ordered the Osso Bucco with saffron Rice as I have not seen it on many menus recently and it is one of my favourites,both meals were excellently presented and extremely filling so much so that we had to decline ordering dessert..Good attentive and friendly service .Hope to visit again."
    dined on 17/03/2014
  • "There's very good service here - which makes for a great (relatively informal) business lunch - and some of the dishes are wonderful (we all loved the tuna carpaccio but the lobster spaghettini divided opinions). It was quite quiet and so a tiny bit lacking in atmosphere, but perhaps that's to be expected for an early-week lunchtime. OK pricewise with the 30% off food. I would go back but perhaps only later in the week or in the evening."
    dined on 17/03/2014
  • "Booked Pescatori for a friend's dinner and it was not a bad choice at all. From the second we walked into the moment we left the service was impeccable. The food was stunning! Between us we had scallops, salmon, the figs and Parma ham and for mains the pancetta and scallop risotto, the lobster pasta and the seared tuna. All beautifully cooked and seasoned! It has a family feel about the place, like you're almost on holiday in Italy whilst remaining upmarket. Highly recommend!"
