I always have frittura misto or astice alla catalana. Both are fantastic. Also the antipasto are awesome, especially ventresca tuna. This place is my second home! When I go back to Milano, I always try here. Unfortunately a pain to reserve, they never pick up to phone ;-)

By far, the best dish served here was the lobster a la Catalana- very tasty, perfectly seasoned with tomatoes and spring onion

this was one of the highlights of my trip to milano. their signature dish is a must try for seafood lovers. apart from that, everything I had was delicious and full of flavour. you have to book in advance otherwise it looks impossible to have a table for dinner (over weekends).

This popular and lively restaurant offers one of the most authentic and delicious restaurant experiences in Milan. A huge chunk of crusty bread on the table, the freshest seafood, a good bottle of wine and a lot of character! What more do you need? Reservations are a must and very reasonably priced.

Il pescatore is a well know restaurant in Milan. Known for it's amazing catalana dish made of lobster, onion and tomatoes is never disappointing in taste. What is disappointing is the staff. They have been regular employees forever and feel that they are in right to treat customers like "folks", despite the pricepoint of this restaurant is high. Meals are... More

This is one of the best seafood restaurant in Milano. You need to book in advnace because it is always so crowded. We loved Catalana a lot. A small place with nice atmosphere.

Il pescatore is my favourite seafood restaurant in Milan. Aragosta alla Catalana is the signature dish. Friendly owner and staff make the Trattoria a very authentic Sardinian seafood restaurant.

Simple ambience, authentic tastes cooked in traditional & magnificent way. Too many people waiting in line to taste the goodies offered so reservations are a must. The serving was simple and genuine with no delays in an evening rush hour. The taste of spaghetti cartogio and aragosta alla catalana was superb!! The surprising and tasteful cheese serving was the appropriate... More

Highly recommended! A restaurant full of local people- meaning not touristic. Quite busy place, booking a table is recommended. We had langostina a la catalana, tagliata di tonno and spaghetti with seafood. Everything was very good! What was simply exquisite was the cheese served at the end of the dinner- delicious!
