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 reserved Pescatori for a client lunch for a group of 8. We missed our timeslot when the meeting went over and showed up with only five diners an hour late. The staff was accommodating and friendly about making the switch. The food was great and service was attentive. The space is attractive although it could be loud at a more crowded hour. Will take people there again.

    I had the spaghetti lobster (this dish was more expensive than the half lobster) and it was alright. I loved the restaurant in general but it's not value for money when you other dishes that are not fresh fish.

    I ate here with my wife on Friday night, The place is very nice, good decor but it lacks a lot in the quality of the food. Maybe we got unlucky but there was not good taste or flavour there. I have to say though that the service is outstanding, one of the best i've been to, just a shame that the quality of food didn't match.

    Lots of variety on the menu, fantastic fish and shell fish and a great selection of wines. Quite pricey but a treat if willing to splash out (or if you have Tesco restaurant vouchers..!). However, I have never known the salt baked sea bass NOT to be on the 'specials' board?!

    Very friendly welcome.we were taken to our table situated in a corner where we could see the chefs working.We are getting on in years and appreciated being out of the way of very busy waiters.Assistant manager Arkadiusz (Arakadi) very knowledgeable and helpful in menu choices. .My starter was crab meat and avocado on bruschetta,very nice.My main was sea bass cooked in salt ,ably filleted at the table by Arkadi. This was accompanied by sandfire and a more than ample dish of small jersey royal potatoes(an extra) My lovely lady had parma ham coated with parmesan shavings.We were both surprised at the very generous serving.We enjoyed a lovely Rioja (28.50)Restaurant had a lovely Italian feel to it .All in all a great experience.

    Very enjoyable meal, great service, only issue was that the restaurant was quite quiet, although to be fair we did eat at 18:30 as we had children with us. We had the lobster and it was fab!!! We will be back

    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.
