Cuisine: European, Italian
The execution is simple and the digs are well worn, but Il Pescatore remains well loved nonetheless, a neighborhood eatery that has remained popular despite changing hands a number of times. Homey and comfortable, many cite friendly staffers as one of the reasons they keep coming back for the meatballs and cannelloni, carbonara and lasagna and lemony veal piccata – among other takes on hearty homespun Italian classics. Waits aren't uncommon on busy nights – it's on the cozy side – so feel free to call in for take-out if your cravings can't be put off. Il Pescatore is nothing if not exceedingly casual; feel free to bring the kids. Just try not to let them fill up on the free garlic bread while waiting for their meals.
