This is it if you're looking for REAL Italian food with REAL waiters who have experience in serving. The inside is quite large and parking is easy and plentiful. Everything I have ever ordered here has been absolutely fantastic. The bread is great. Cannelloni is superb, love the Lasagne, Chicken Piccata yummmm. The salad that comes with meals is nice...

Had dinner reservations for a party of 9 on a Tuesday evening. Our table was set and ready for us. Service was a little slow but our server was busy and handled our table well considering the number of guests she was serving. Food was very good, everyone had their own Italian favorite and I did not hear that anyone... More

The waiter was absolutely amazing, so friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. The seafood pasta was amazing and so we're the meat ravioli's. Will go back.

This is a great Italian restaurant!! Very comfortable, home-like atmosphere, generous portions and very friendly & attentive staff. We came for lunch (1pm) and the place was packed - a good feeling when you walk in. The lasagna is was at least 4 inches thick with loads of sauce & cheese. The spinach & cheese ravioli was delicious - still... More

Been here several times for lunch which is always good and reasonably priced. The staff is attentive with delivery hot and pick up is not intrusive. Need to come back for dinner.

Italian classics in a comfortable environment. Generous portions of fresh ingredients. Excellent service- attentive yet not overbearing. We were told about this place by a taxi driver after asking for recommendations for a hidden gem in the Orlando area (as we were keen to escape the tourist scene). We were not disappointed by this local restaurant with a homely feel.

Il Pescatore is in a spot where another great owner, Stefano's, was before it. Rumor has it that IP has kept the menu which is excellent. The daily specials included the catch of the day along with other dishes, displayed on a chalkboard, as you walk in. Everyone had a different entree and there were no complaints from any of... More

We met friends for dinner last night. We usually go to Il Peacatore a few times a year. The service is always good and everyone is very nice. The food on this trip was not as good as past visits. The flavor of the chicken parm was not on point like it usually is. The special that some of the... More

I ordered the calzone and it was so big that it extended beyond the plate. They give you the choices of the cheeses and meats to put in and it was hot and the tomato sauce that went with it was excellent. I would definitely eat there again. The only drawback was the dining area is relatively small compared to... More

We heard about this place from friends, and it took us way to long to try it. We enjoyed the service the ambiance and of course the food. We had the bruschetta appetizer (the bread was superbly seasoned). Peggy had the Pollo de Stephan with sausage, pepperoncini's and other Italian seasonings. I had the veal marsala with linguini which was... More
