A word from Il Pescatore Restaurant
Il Pescatore was founded in 1980 by three partners all of whom were of Tuscan origin. The original menu included classic Tuscan dishes, which are still on the menu today, such as Pasta della Casa, Veal Scallopine with mushrooms, and our signature Veal T-Bone with Rosemary (Lombata de Vitello al Rosmarino).

With the explosion of the Italian food and wine scene in the 1980’s, the menu expanded to represent dishes from numerous regions of the Italian peninsula. Risotto con funghi (Piemonte), Cannelloni alla Romana (Roma), Eggplant Parmigiana (Sicilia), and Fresh Fish Picatta (Napoli) are but a few of the regional dishes on our menu.

Our menu has been continuously evolving, and this year we introduced our own homemade Gelato and Sorbet.


Il Pescatore has been proudly serving the community of Oakland for over 32 years at Jack London Square and we have been blessed with many loyal customers over the years.

Diner Reviews
  • "We absolutely loved this place. The bar tender was awesome and staff was so accommodating. Great ambiance. Had a wonderful time!"

  • "We had a family get together there on Sunday night. We were seated promptly and given a great window table with a fabulous view of the bay. We were seated promptly and our server was there right away to ask us about appetizers and drinks. We ordered the Carpaccio and a bottle of champagne, which were all very good. They could add to their champagne offerings by the bottle. All of us ordered pasta entree's and they were excellent, my brother ordered the Crab cakes as an entree, he loved it. Great food, good service although the servers were distracted by the NCAA women's semi finals as Stanford were playing. We really enjoy going here for the service, food and the views."

  • "My son and I came for an early dinner. We got a table for 2 at the window. The waiter was engaging and humorous. The food was delicious. We enjoyed the experience and i will bring my wife here for a romantic dinner."

  • "Not an entirely full review. We ended up showing right at reservation time. We were sat at at a random location, the host wouldn't even check for our reservation. We sat for 30 minutes without even getting a drink order. We are a professional couple, which confuses me how the restaurant was not even 50% full, and we were ignored. We ended up leaving and going to Scott's, which was an excellent dining experience. I would suggest Il Pescatore to no one."

  • "We love this restaurant for the scenic marina view and the food is always Very good. Best clam chowder around. The wait staff is attentive and charming."

  • "Haven't been there for a long time, still a nice site with good views but seems to be failing and cutting back on food quality (but not price)."

  • "The service and food were just ok. Not bad but not great."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Il Pescatore is a long time favorite of ours. We've been coming here since we moved to the Bay Area 15 years ago. As the name implies, it has Italian cuisine with an emphasis on seafood. The recently renovated interior creates an atmosphere of sumptuous luxury with its dark, heavy, leather chairs and waterfront view. The food and service rarely disappoint, although the prices reflect its tourist spot location."

  • "We go to Il Pescatore for the Classic Italian and the great service. You never know how boisterous the crowd will be. Saturday turned out to be a quiet night. Gave us a chance to interact with the waiter, Kendal who's wine recommendations was spot on.This is a great menu to share dishes. Starting with the paper thin carpaccio capers and mustard, then shared a bowl of linguine with garlic and oil leaving room for the main dish. The veal Piccata is one of my favorites and my companion had a very nice fish recommended by Kendal. Entrees are served with perfectly steamed vegetables and a penne in a tomato and Parmesan. We didn't finish the pasta so we had room to share the Taramisu. Great coffee and fine brandy to finish a excellent meal."

  • "A great place for special occasions. Friendly service. Excellent food."

  • "We had always wanted to try this restaurant and now I know why they had open reservations at the last minute on NYE - it's not that great. The food presentation was mediocre and the food itself was overpriced, although edible. Count this one as a learning experience."

  • "You will want to travel to Italy, following this Italian traditional seafood experience. If you can't, then come back to Il Pescatore"

  • "Way, way, way over priced...such a bummer...no kids menu...loved the waiter. Won't go back :("

  • "I will no longer fill out a feedback form. I have had some not great experiences and NONE of my feedback forms has ever appeared in the reviews. I believe you cherry pick the reviews which means your feedback forms are fixed. done with wasting my time."

  • "Food was good, wait staff funny and relaxed, not in your face pushing you along. Definitely use Valet parking. We parked on the street and It turned out to be an extreme expensive meal as the car had been broken into while we were dining! Got to love Oakland."

  • "This was our second dinner at Il Pescatore and we experienced the same delicious food and prompt, friendly service we'd received the first time we dined there. This is one we're definitely keeping on our list."

  • "We went here for the first time based on a recommendation. It was our anniversary. We just loved our experience. My wife said that it was the best meal she has ever had in a restaurant and she has been to many restaurants all over the country. The service was excellent. The ambiance was perfect for a special occasion like ours. The food was perfect, the preparation excellent. I strongly recommend this restaurant ."

  • "We were a group of 8, rather loud, for lunch, and they welcomed us warmly. Great service. I only heard good things about all the dishes and wine. Thumbs up for chowder. My personal drink revue--don't order a Lemon Drop martini. We all agreed, we would do it again."

  • "We have been going to Il Pescatore for over 30 years and wanted to go once again for my 75th birthday.When we walked in, we couldn't believe all the "JUNK" that has been hauled in to decorate the restaurant!!It would make a wonderful museum for the history of music but does not belong in the décor of a fairly small restaurant.We were "attacked" by gnats throughout our meal.The pasta accompanying the dishes was a very small portion.We have never seen such a small number of diners in one of our favorite restaurants!It makes me sad to have to write all of this because Nasir and the rest of the waiters have always been some of our favorites, but I think this place will be going under very soon if it doesn't make some major changes!"

  • "First time walking over here for dinner. Nice, authentic Italian food; quiet atmosphere. After the hub-ub of younger, upbeat places in the area this was a really nice place to wind down and enjoy a quiet dinner and professional wait staff. The old-school feel we read about worked for us and we look forward to our next visit. Loved loved loved the host in his very handsome navy blue suit."

  • "The food here is actually quite tasty and the staff is friendly and helpful (even if not quite as attentive as you'd want). The views of marina are lovely. The interior of the restaurant however could use updating as it's dark and tired and tables are awfully close together."
    Dined on 10/20/2013
  • "I brought my parents here at their request for Italian and seafood after a long trip. The service was very attentive and we loved the views of the boats and the water. However However, our food came out lukewarm at best and mine was not at all as described on the menu. The sorbet, however, is worth the trip: home made, it was light and fluffy, not at all icy."

  • "We had a delicious dinner. Although there was only one other couple in the restaurant when we arrived, by the time we left they had gotten busier. Lovely tables by the windows with a view of the sailboats....Tableclothes..... Knowledgeable server, Tony, who had been there over 20 years.... The veal limone was so tasty..... could have had another helping."

  • "My friend and I had the Veal special. It was excellent; many restaurants claim to serve Veal; this one actually does. Everything is fresh and delicious!"
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "Fried calamari was soggy and tasteless. Clam chowder was runny and about a half cup size for $8.95. Caesar salad was good. Shrimp Louie looked like it came from Safeway deli. Absolutely substandard food for the high price. No value here."
