Amazing food and service. Quality of the food is excellent and the staff are extremely friendly. Have been coming here a lot throughout the years and still this place does not disappoint. Highly recommend this place to anyone visiting or living in Southend-on-Sea.

Been to il Pescatore for years but popped in for lunch last week and I have to say had the best tasting starter I have ever had. Scallops and king prawns on the specials board - you have got to try it 👌🏻👌🏻

We took 6 people to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food was really tasty and hot. There was a very good selection of wine, as well as vegan and vegetarian dishes. The service was exemplary and the prices were reasonable. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

It’s hard to get a good balance between service that is attentive enough but not over the top. The guys in Il Pescatore have it sussed! A lovely evening, recommend the rigatoni dishes as all of our party were really pleased.

Dropped in for lunch on Saturday. We used to lunch every Saturday here, I had forgotten why we stopped. This visit reminded me. Just the 2 of us, no alcohol at all. 1 fizzy water, 1 Diet Coke, 1 garlic bread, 2 starters, 2 pasta...More
