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
  • "Thoroughly enjoyable - excellent food and ambiance"
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "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."

  • "...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 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,"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "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!"

  • "delicious food and great value with TT offer. enjoyed excellent, friendly service. Delicious food. Excellent location and ambience for dinner with friends."
    dined on 19/03/2014
  • "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
  • "Phenomenal service from the whole team working at Pescatori. The manager took our order and was able to explain clearly and in detail how the food is made and what ingredients are used, not many restaurants out there are able to offer this service, normally they just reiterate what the menu states. Very happy with the service and will dine again."
    dined on 11/03/2014
  • "Six of us lunched at Pescatori and it has a great seafood offering. The Toptable offer (30% of food) helped towards an expensive but very enjoyable visit."
    dined on 06/03/2014
  • "The food was really good,the quality of the ingredients as well. We had antipasti platter to share as a starter and the fritto misto to share as a main course. The fish was really good and fresh, also the fried vegetables but I wouldn't put fried aubergine but in all the complex was really good with a bottle of fresh White wine! Our waiter was friendly and all the staff as well unless when we entered to the restaurant there was nobody at the reception and so we had to wait for 2-3 mins before to sit. Nobody told us anything about the promotion of 30% off on food either our waiter or manager in charge that day. We definitely will be back but with the 30% off!!"
    dined on 06/03/2014
  • "The other week I wanted to eat somewhere to celebrate a new job and I had an appetite for seafood and Pescatori stood out on Toptable's list, partly because of the 30% off food discount offer. The staff were excellent and very attentive and the food was all delicious. The wine list was excellent too and the staff seemed to know about what goes well with what. The only thing I would say this restaurant doesn't do wonderfully on is value - everything was pretty expensive. Even with the 30% offer two of us still spent £60 of food including starters, mains, sides and a dessert. Admittedly, I did got for expensive starters but without the discount the bill would have been eye-watering, but the fact the food was excellent means I will come again."
    dined on 25/02/2014
  • "My starter was octopus carpaccio with orange and fennel. The carpaccio was really boring, it could have done with some dressing or something. The fennel was pickled and I hate anything pickled. My main was black pasta with courgettes and crayfish. When it arrived the pasta was horribly heavy and tasted of flour. I couldn't eat it. It was also tasteless, unseasoned and no flavour of garlic or really anything at all. My brother's risotto, he said, was under-cooked and my boyfriend had a fish stew which was unfortunately accompanied by polenta which is pretty horrible at the best of times. It was bland. Service was really slow too. The restaurant was also too cold. Our waitress was actually lovely and very apologetic though."
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "We went here with Tesco Clubcard vouchers, and had we not had these to contribute £50 to the bill, I would have felt fairly ripped off. The food was acceptable but nothing special and therefore felt overpriced at face value. The service was very rushed and the waiter even took my wine glass off the table before we had finished our bottle (though in fairness he was very apologetic when we pointed this out). To top it off, as we were waiting to pay the bill we both noticed something scuttle across the floor... probably a mouse. Not very impressed overall."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "If you like fish and seafood this restaurant is excellent. Good selection inlcuding shellfish - such as razor clams - not always found. Their half lobster and steak (my husband said) was delicious. Very frindly staff too."
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "We went for the 30% offer on the food. On arriving to the restaurant we were met by a good ambience, courtous service, which sort of slipped as the evening went along. The food was quite bland, i.e. the starter crab sallad. If we had paid the full price, we would have been quite dissatisfied. The ladies toilets were not satisfactory - ceiling lights missing and sink dirty around taps. However, in total an enjoyable evening in a rather good traditional restaurant."
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "Brought a picky eater from New York for a business lunch. Ambiance was very nice, place was bright and friendly. Tables were not too tightly packed allowing for comfortable dinning and easy conversation. Service was attentive (maybe sometimes too attentive) but really fast. Food was excellent, portions were generous and taste refined. Did I mention fast...appetisers and full mains in about 1 1/4 hour. Fastest lunch on Charlotte Street. They will now be on my regular rotation a first call rather than a backup."
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "The menu was extensive and interesting and the food was nicely cooked. However, it was overpriced and did not represent good value for money."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "I think the above said it all - and 30% off, even better!"
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "Nice food and service, but ambience was a little cheap and OTT looking - balloons and rose petals. The menus are a little 'chain' restaurant looking too. Maybe it is!"
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Had a meal here on Valentines Day. Lovely atmosphere and very nice food."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Good quality of the food, really nice atmosphere and comfy chairs. Amazing Lobster with salsa thermidor. Only negative note, we were sat near the counter and had to listen all evening to the waiters swearing in Italian, which is a problem really only if you understand Italian and you mind the bad language."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Pescatori had great food and drink. The atmosphere was pleasant (Valentine's Day) and even though they mentioned a 2-hour time limit and were clearly busy, they didn't really rush us at all. In fact, the service towards the end of the meal might even be described as slow. The service in general was good, although they did confuse the order of our dishes. Overall, very positive experience, especially for a last minute booking on a usually busy day."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Excellent: thinly sliced octopus starter, saffron scallop soup, whole sea bream, sardines in the fritto misto, chocolate pie, chocolate pot, lemon tart"
    dined on 13/02/2014
  • "Fantastic food and ambience but the experience was spoilt by having a compulsory 12.5% gratuity added to the bill."
    dined on 12/02/2014
  • "The service in this restaurant was outstanding. We felt incredibly well looked after by not one but several members of staff. They were very attentive. I recommend the scallops as a starter! We also had the seafood platter & the only thing I'd say is that it was a little bit bland. Lemon & garlic butter was provided but as is often the case with a cold platter it got a bit same-y & the razor clams too were a bit rubbery. It was well prepared & both the lobster & langoustines were of an excellent size. Dessert was also of excellent quality & not an afterthought as in so many chain restaurants.The toilets could do with a bit of tarting up, but otherwise it was a great place to go for a blow out seafood & champagne evening!"
    dined on 07/02/2014
  • "Nice place and wonderful service. We were very pleased with Marta who served our table. The food was good, to be honest i should say that we appreciated main cources more than startes."
    dined on 30/01/2014
  • "I attended a birthday meal at I Pescatori. The food was good quality thought not overgenerous in portions and everyone enjoyed a most pleasant evening though the cost was a little pricy but tolearable as the overall experience was very good."
    dined on 30/01/2014
  • "Slightly over priced food and overcooked lobster. Even with TT 50%, I will not recommend."
    dined on 12/11/2013
  • "Really good food, great range of dishes, friendly services, unhurried. would definitely recommend."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "We arrived 30minutes late due to our show running over, but this was absolutely no problem.We received excellent service, and we were not rushed. The waitress was excellent when our wine was being opened the cork unfortunately broke but on opening she went out of her way to check that none had gone into the wine and was very adament that if there had been the bottle would have been changed immediately. The food was excellent and we have relayed this to many people. I would highly recommend this restraunt, and will most certainly be returning."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "i haven't been for a while but the food had definitely gone downhill. All seemed a bit bland and tasteless. Service excellent though and a really nice atmosphere."
    dined on 23/01/2014
  • "we were entertained by our waiter who took the time to attend to all our needs effectively and was very accomodating in relation to the staggered arrival of the guests. the food was also enjoyable"
    dined on 24/01/2014
  • "We went there for my dads birthday and it was a great place .... It was pretty busy, but service was great! Definitely order starters."
    dined on 10/01/2014
  • "By chance I booked this restaurant for Thursday night, not really knowing how good it will be. We really enjoyed our meal at the restaurant, I had one of the specials, and they were able to change the sauce with my meal without any problem. My friend does not eat meat, and the options for her were outstanding. I have already recommended this restaurant to some of my friends."
    dined on 23/01/2014
  • "always a pleasure at this restaurant. menu is tempting and the staff delightful. perfect lunch."
    dined on 23/01/2014
  • "Had a lovely evening at Pescatori. As soon as I walked in, although the lady on the front desk was with other people she took time to acknowledge me and tell me she would be with me shortly. All of the other staff were also very friendly, especially the gentleman who served us who took a lot of time to help my friend who has a nut allergy. Food was excellent, and although not cheap, not too expensive. The 30% discount made it a great evening! Would definitely recommend."
    dined on 23/01/2014
  • "Everything was great. No complaints at all. The bill came back first without the discount, but was rectified immediately by the waiter. Top class food."
    dined on 16/01/2014
  • "The food was not bad its nice we actually enjoyed it and the service was ok. The price is a little expensive compares to the restaurants i've been to that serves seafood but I was expecting to get a 30% disount because they have a special offer from January 9 to 31st January when you order a minimum of 2 courses from the a la carte menu you get the discount but i did not get any discount at all from my bill of almost £250, and i actually ordered 4 courses from the menu so it was a bit disappointing. I would probably eat again there but not occasionally because price is a little expensive."
