This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.
Not as good as I remember. Visited Thursday before New Year's, hardly anyone there, so we easily got a Window table. One server, who took calls, seated you, made and served drinks besides taking your order. One very attentive busboy.
We celebrated my mom"s 80th birthday and the staff decorated the table, sat us at a perfect table next to the water and treated us like kings and queens. The pasta dishes and salmon were the best dishes. Our veal was fantastic, tender and tasty but slightly cold. The desserts were amazing and we tried all of them. Tiramisu was the best I've ever tasted!
