Description: Waterfront views, rolling hills, locally-made food, 261 days of sun a year. Oakland and Northern Italy have more than just their climates in common. And this February, Lungomare combines the best of both regions on the waterfront at Jack London Square. Giving Oaklanders a new way to enjoy some of the city's best features: fresh food and fine weather, Lungomare is the latest project from the owners of Chop Bar and Grand Tavern, and while the setting is new, the mission remains the same: quality ingredients, perfectly executed. The menu will offer a blend of Tuscan and Ligurian specialties - a mix of seafood, house-cured meats, rustic pizza and fresh pasta, with dishes locally sourced whenever possible. Since the waterfront has one of the best views in the Town, Lungomare has plenty of outdoor seating, with heat lamps, wind screens and trellises to make it a comfortable place to sit year-round. Plus, there will be a raw bar, a regular bar, and a cafe to make it an all-day destination, whether you're grabbing coffee on the way to work, or dinner on a Saturday night.

“Nice waterfront restaurant. Good Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We sat outside at first but the temperature dropped so we moved inside. The view outside was nice but so was the view we had inside through the window. The food was good and the service was good also. If you're in the area, give it a try.

“nice place, slow bar service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I ate at the bar and had very slow service.The host seated me at a table where I sat for 5 minutes without being noticed. I moved to the bar where the bartender hid around the corner for 5 more minutes until I got a menu and glass of wine. The bartenders changed shift and the new bartender ignored me for 10 more minutes. He poured a beer for the guy next to me and walked away. I yelled before he could disappear around the corner again. So, after 15 or 20 minutes had passed before I gave my order, the rest was all good. The food was good, the decor, and ambiance was good.

“new restraurant, great location, romantic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Lungomare is located on the waterfront at Jack London Square. It is adjacent to the Marina and has a fenced in outside dining area with a great view and is very romantic. The bar also has an open area looking out at the square and is great for people watching. The menu contains a number of authentic Italian items, with some that are not usually found. We had a porchetta dish with carmelized sunchokes; orecchiette; and crispy cardoons with aioli. A great desert is the Budino, chocolate mousse with caramel. There is a short list of creative cocktails and wine. My favorite cocktail is the Ricky Barry (black bottle scotch, cinchona liquor and lime seltzer water). Service is very professional and efficient.
