Fish and seafood plays a lead role at this family-run Italian on Charlotte Street. It's one of two Pescatoris in London - there's another over in Mayfair, too.

The menu certainly reads like an authentic slice of coastal Italian cuisine. Dishes range from fritto misto and bruschetta di granchio to yellow fin tuna carpaccio with tempura oyster, oven-baked sea bream with rosemary, Amalfi lemon and garlic, and tagliatelle con bolognese di mare - a pasta dish made with a ragu of smoked haddock and cod with carrots, onions, white wine and thyme. 

It's not all fish and seafood though. Dishes with a foot on terra firma include wild mushroom risotto with parmesan, a roast rack of Cumbrian lamb with a pistachio crust, and filetto di maiale - Tamworth pork fillet wrapped in a pancetta and sage, served with pumpkin purée, cannellini beans, wine and a balsamic jus. 

Keep an eye out for set menus and private dining options, too.

When it comes to set menus, Pescatori’s £35 offering is certainly up there with the best. The unlimited prosecco doesn’t hurt either! I had a delicious moule mariniere to start and a beautifully tender swordfish with green beans for mains. My lemon tart was tasty but I had food envy over my friend’s chocolate torte. Being late November, the restaurant had a cosy festive atmosphere and the staff were particularly attentive to keeping our prosecco glasses well topped up. Best to go with a small group of seafood-loving friends.


I had a group of 10 at this restaurant  I can not fault it. The staff were very attentive, we ordered off the set menu and the food was delicious I especially loved the lemon tart. We sat at a long table against the wall and it was perfect for a small group it felt very private and the restaurant itself is beautiful. The unlimited prosecco was lovely with dinner. All my guests were impressed by the service food and cost.


Despite its large size, Pescatori does a good job of creating cosy pockets that make you feel like you're dining in a quaint Italian Taverna. The menu is simple, nothing groundbreaking, just good Italian food done well. The linguine lobster was sublime and the portion was pretty decent, if slightly on the pricey side. Service was friendly, but a little slow.


Pescatori is a fantastic restaurant for fish lovers. The service is very attentive and the food is brilliant. They also have a very good wine selection. Prices are quite steep but the quality of the food makes it worth the money. Overall highly recommended.


We tried the unlimited prosecco offer.

Drinks continually topped up from the start. The staff were particularly friendly.

We had scallops, hake and cheesecake. Amazing

Highly recommend

Always a winner. Consistent standards which are high, great daily fish selection. Staff always look after customers well. Well worth checking out for the fish alone. Love atmosphere.
