    This was our first time at Il Pescatore and we were not disappointed. We had seen photos of the food on Facebook and the dishes chosen certainly lived up to our expectation.The staff were friendly and helpful and the food delicious. We’ll definitely be back.

    Very friendly, warm venue. Service is very good and pricing very reasonable. Food has the traditional italian flavours. I can see from my previous visit they have changed the furniture and the new chairs and tables are very nice and comfortable. Would I book and visit again? 100% I would. I hope they can weather the lockdown again :-)

    Was OK, but service wasn't as good as usual, had to wait ages for main meal after starters, & to pay the bill

    Such a lovely place. Never been before but will definitely be going back. The staff were so warm,friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious! My 4 year old demolished a pizza all to himself as he enjoyed it so much! Truely was such a lovely evening. Looking forward to going back again.

    Staff really friendly and accommodating. Excellent value for money, had a lovely time . Generous proportions but not so big they’re off putting. Would certainly recommend to other people.

    Service was good but the food was not what we expected. Over priced and was definitely re heated in the microwave and covered with a tin of chopped tomatoes and cheese!

    We have used this place before and always had a good experience. This time, for me, on my birthday we were restricted to attendees because of Covid. We could only manage lunchtime as my young grandchildren were at school and needed collecting soon after 3pm. Hence we only wanted a lunchtime meal and not full al la carte. After a good welcome we were seated and a drinks order placed. However the lunchtime menus were not on the table and had to be requested. I was really disappointed that the pate I had ordered was had a liberal amount of dressing on the salad accompaniment. Then the Hawaiian Pizza I ordered should have been renamed vegetable pizza as it contained neither ham nor pineapple. Altogether, for me a disappointing lunch. The others in my party still enjoyed their food. I am just being Victor Meldrew.

    Was very disappointed by a waiter who made us feel like we did not belong there. He was rude and when we asked about a particular dish on the menu, the seafood pasta he laughed and said what do I think. We left without experiencing the food so yes very disappointed

    A small business which has an amazing atmosphere. When you walk back to your tables from the bathroom the blue lighting really amps the atmosphere you really feel like you are in a bubble in Italy. They made a beautiful grilled sea bass. It’s well worth a visit if you wish to support a small Southend business. I will definitely be going back.

    Amazing food and service at a very reasonable price. My only very small criticism was our table was a little small for three people however this was minor due to everything else being spot on

    Lovely family restaurant lovely food and great service only thing I was disappointed with was booking through fork, as when I called to confirm my booking the restaurant had no reservation booking for me for me lucky enough they had a space.

    I love this little restaurant. The food is always good altho the service can be a little brusque. Tonight I had the monkfish with prawns- delicious!
