Great fish... Absolutely no nonsense Nice terrace... A bit slacking on service so don't expect immediate service... Very good price performance ratio. Stick with the fish ...

On a friday when most of the restaurants were packed we got a nice table and good service from the start. We had one portion of grilled squid, which was good with a nice salad. Warm plates, though, would have made it even better. The same goes for the pasta with mussels -- it was very nicely spiced with a... More

Really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. Very attentive staff and great food. Totally the opposite to the Villa E Palazzo Aminta where we stayed.

Visit on a tour with a business group. Some dishes were good like the Lasagna, but the rest was not so great. Staff are not very friendly, would not say rude, but not very cooperative. Would not go there again

I didn't expect too much from this place, but food was very good with variety of different fish, pasta, and risotto. Service is quite good if we consider that this is a tourist place. Food coming pretty fast, but they need to be little faster when you need order or pay. Prices are little higher but that is normal for... More

This was a scheduled dinner provided from our large tour provider. We boated over and walked the island for bit. We all enjoyed our drinks (wine) very well but the cats didn't seem fitting in a Resteraunt? The food was plentiful but seem to be missing seasoning maybe but that's my preference? The view you have here is beautiful and... More

We lunched at La Pescheria and had a lovely time. The menu was varied and good value - all the dishes we ordered were excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was so nice - calm and shady and overlooking the Lake. Two lovely cats shared our fish! We returned the next evening and asked to have... More

We spent a few days on the island Pescatori. We discovered this nice restaurant while walking on the island. After a long stay on the mainland we decided this place for dinner. Even without a reservation we got a nice table. Despite many guests the service was very fast and always very attentive. The food was great. The menu is... More

We stopped off for lunch here between visiting Isola Madre and Bella. A very hot day but they gave us a nice table on the terrace, shaded by the vines and wisteria. We all enjoyed the food - I had the smoked trout and then the baked trout. Good house wine. Reasonably priced. Attentive and helpful service.

Description
In the suggestive scenery of Lake Maggiore, one can admire the most characteristic island of the Borromeo Gulf; Isola Pescatori (Fishermen's Island).It is an attractive village, inhabited mainly by fishermen who still today practice the profession of their fathers and who gave name to this strip of land that interrupts the water of the lake.In this context Restaurant La Pescheria is born, the name of which originates from its activity of the early thirties.This was in fact the only fish shop of the islands: the fish that was prepared here was sold in the whole province and beyond; the fruits of an activity of an inhabited core that counted in those days around two hundred persons and whose primary activity was fishing.Today, the island counts around sixty inhabitants, but the life spirit and many other traditions have not changed through the years, for the joy of who lives here and who visits the island and shares these emotions.The daily fished fish, white fish, allis shad, lake trout and perch, are all part of the specialties that can be sampled at La Pescheria.
