Really good Italian food in the Cannery area of Fisherman's Wharf. Basic Italian selections. Not much creativity with the menu, but everything was well prepared and tasted good for a reasonable price;

Right on the main drag, this cozy little seafood place serves up great Italian fare and fresh fish at reasonable prices. Great for the whole family.

We visited this restaurant twice on our recent trip to San Francisco. While it has similar options to most of the many other seafood places at Fisherman's Wharf, the prices were very reasonable, the portions generous and the food really tasty. The spaghetti with salmon was particularly good. The wine was reasonably priced with a good selection. Service was good... More

We had a very good dinner and got there in time for happy hour. The drink menu was a bit restrictive for happy hour but adequate. We both had fish and chips and they let us substitute a salad for the chips (healthier). The fish was very tasty! For dessert we shared the brownie sundae which was to die for!... More

The service was great. My wife got the Angelina and she said it was delicious. It was recommended by the waitress. I got the chicken parmesan and it was salty. Chicken was thin and the linguini was bland. 3 stars for the server.

We were in San Francisco, traveling as a group of 7, ranging in age from 8-74. Finding restaurants that have something for everyone, was sometimes challenging, but not here. Everyone found something to choose on the menu & we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We also liked the charming, laid-back atmosphere of the restaurant & it's location on the wharf,... More

We arrived on a Saturday night with no booking and bad jet lag and were greeted then room was made for us by very competent and cheerful staff. The shrimp was simply the best I've had for many years while the pan fried fish was greeted with acclaim by my spouse. And the drink prices were, by Australian standards anyway,... More

Great bay shrimp sandwich and chowder combo. Great lunch spot. Pleasant atmosphere, right in the middle of everything and a short walk from the Cannery and Ghirardelli Square.
