what a wonderful meal I had at Sotto Mare! Casual atmosphere that was relaxed and comfortable. The house wine was great...but even better were the tomatoes on my salad! Like they were fresh from the garden. I chose a scallop dish that was unbelievable. Really decent prices all the way around. highly recommend! We did arrive early (5:30) on a... More

We arrived in the early evening to avoid queuing and were immediately seated indoors at a table for four. There are also a few tables outside on the pavement and whilst it was tempting to sit outside in the sun and watch Little Italy go by, the atmosphere inside was much more compelling. The waitress was very friendly and helpful,... More

Located on Green Street in San Francisco’s Little Italy district in the middle of North Beach, Sotto Mare is casual and inexpensive and the food is excellent. My wife and I stopped by for a late lunch while in town for business. The day we were there, the temperature was in the 80’s so we decided to sit in the... More

Just read my cousin Donna's review of Sotto Mare in San Fran...Had no idea she had been there! My Husband Scott & I looked it up ahead of time for our trip to Cali last spring. Went directly there for excellent Ciopino, great bread & wine. We sat at the counter of this quirky legend & enjoyed every bite! So... More

Our party went to Sotto Mare based on the reviews on trip advisor. We went on a Friday night without a reservation and arrived just prior to 6pm. When we arrived, there was no host and the wait staff kept on passing us without acknowledging us. When the host finally arrived about 7min later (we almost walked out), he asked... More

We visited this restaurant for Lunch on a Saturday. We went specifically for their signature dish which is "the best Ciopinno in San Francisco" or at least, that is how they bill it. We sat at a the lunch counter, which I love doing for lunch or for an early dinner but we noted that there were very few actual... More

Visited while on a business trip with a colleague, looking for somewhere relaxed and easy after a 10 hour flight. Arrived and put our name on the list for a table and was told it would be a 20 min wait, we turned down the kind offer of a free glass of wine while we waited and headed next door... More

Noisy, small everyone and everything jammed in one fantastic atmosphere! Sit at the bar and rub elbows with like-minded diners or sit out front to enjoy the weather and people. The Cioppino was a knockout! Great service. If you don't go to Sotto Mare when you go to San Francisco then you are definitely missing one of the best places... More
