It's ok. I got the seafood pasta for lunch. Came with a cup of clam chowder, it was ok. I had chowder the day before from boudin and it was better. The seafood pasta was in a red sauce. It came with shrimp, clams, oysters, and squid. The food was only ok to me but the service was good so... More

First time in SF and after two days of trial and error, low quality over priced food in tourist trap restaurants, we decided to have lunch here. What a pleasant surprise! I had the best clam chowder ever! Restaurant does not look fancy at all but the food was great! Will come back!!!

After wandering from Union Square after my cable car ride downtown, I finally ended up at the Wharf. I looked at all the menus and settled on Sabella & Latorre. Wow was I impressed. I ordered the dish with sauteed prawns and scallops. Left off the crablegs becasue I wasn't into getting messy that night; and I added a side... More

Such a terrific restaurant! It is not spacious, but the service is terrific and the prices are very reasonable. If you love seafood, order the crab louis. You'll end up with an entire crab!!

So I arrives for business in San Francisco and had an afternoon to kill. I have headed to the wharf on prior trips just to dig into some good clam chowder. Each time I try to find a different place and by chance this trip's choice was sabella. This was the first time that I headed into the restaurant but... More

This is a nice little restaurant, staff are friendly and the food was good. We had the clam chowder in the sour dough roll which you have to try at Fisherman's Wharf. The kids menu was better then most restaurants we went to in America by have not just burgers and mac n cheese.

Just visited San Francisco and Fisherman´s Wharf, the second time for me. Walking around (Me, wife and two adult kids) we went by SAbella. My wife felt that it looked good so we went in. While the food was good the overall experience suffered mainly for me becaus the booth we were in was unpleasantly small (I am 178cm) I... More

Very casual atmosphere. The guys out front are like carnies, yelling, " come on inside, fresh seafood" etc. Once inside the service was pleasant and efficient. The food, including fish and chips, shrimp cocktail, crab, and chowder was very good and reasonably priced.

Needs serious updating. Feel like I am in an episode of Restaurant: Impossible. Food, menu, edifice, decor, and ambiance need major updating. Hard to pay for something that may have been successful in the 60s, but not in modern times. Would've been a lot cheaper and fresher to eat outdoors than being stuck in the 60s inside this restaurant. Had... More

the food is great, we all had a different meal and enjoyed it. There is a big counter outside, and a very basic but pleasant eatery inside. All the staff is great, friendly and very accommodating. Being on Fisherman's Wharf, it certainly is bustling, and just coming and going. We are glad we tried it.
