Great place to eat. Lively and expect a 20 min wait for table when it's busy. Great food fresh fish and friendly service. I would go again. We were a family of six.

My husband and I ate dinner here twice on our recent trip to SF. The first time we had pizza and the second time we had traditional spaghetti with meatballs and the signature dish Ciaponni. Everything was delicious. The first time we waited about 20 mins for a table and the next time we booked through Open Table. That system... More

This is a very challenging review for me to write as there were some aspects of the meal that were fine, however those were definitely overshadowed by their negligence. This place came highly recommended to us, but our experience was a huge disappointment. I have specific dietary needs and the majority of the time before we go out to eat... More

This place seemed to be busy ALL the time, so we decided to try it. Not sure what the hoopla is about. I don't eat sea food so maybe that was the problem. The joint seemed very average.

I had the cioppino - of course! It was enough to share with my friend and did not disappoint. Wish you could get better views of the water from the restaurant, but a great location on the wharf. Pleasant and helpful service. A good meal overall.

the menu was a good size filled with lots of choices to cover different tastes. we wound up eating there a second time as we were so pleased with it. Between us all and the two nights we tried the pizza, a seafood dish, the carbonara and another pasta and liked everything. Service was good and fast. Place was busy... More

We had a mix of pasta, seafood, and meatballs. All was good. Garlic bread was very good, and the food came out very fast, almost too fast for my liking. Super location and went for a walk after dinner along the ocean.

Family of 7 of us ate here on 9th July. Found us a table no probs although seemed pretty busy. Good choice on the menu and a separate kids menu. Pretty good wine selection for run of the mill wines but that was what we wanted. Particularly liked the Clam Chowder served in a sour dough bowl with salad. Some... More
