We went for lunch on a short visit to Oakland. Beautiful old building on the harbour. Very nice inside with vintage lighting. Tables are spaced apart nicely. Food was excellent. One of the better Italian restaurants we've been to. Service was attentive and professional. Only...small complaint....the women's restroom could use some upgrades. Overall excellent experience.More

We had a good dinner at Pasta Pelican. Service was excellent and the prices are pretty good. Our pasta was fine and there were a number of good choices for our dinner. There is a nice view from the waterfront tables. Over-all, this was a...fine experience.More

Every time I am in Alameda I go to this restaurant. It’s my favorite place for the salmon salad. It’s the only place I will order salmon. Very tasty 😋. I am from out of town and LOVE it. Waiters are nice and respectful. Another...restaurant I highly recommend. Try the salmon salad.More

We went for a familiar kind of dinner. I took my 3.9 and my 0.2 years old kids with me. The welcome from the staff member was the “unappreciated” look when he saw the stroller. They don’t have changing table in the bathroom and no...kid chairs in the restaurant at all. However my kid had a delicious pasta and chicken nuggets meal.More

This restaurant has been at this estuary location for well over 20 years under a couple of names. I believe that originally it was called the Rusty Scupper back in the early 1990’s. The menu is an interesting combination of Italian and American dishes. Please...note that the menu on their website only covers a portion of their extensive menu offerings. I think it might be their take-out menu. How odd not to have the complete menu online. The prices are reasonable and the portions are large; nobody goes home hungry. Our pasta dishes were well prepared and quite tasty. The service was excellent but not intrusive. Since it sits on the Oakland/Alameda estuary, all the tables have a view of the passing boat traffic. Reservations are usually necessary if you want an estuary side window seat. Parking has always been an issue as there is no dedicated parking for the restaurant. You might have to walk a little but it is well worth it.More

Restaurant was dam near empty at 8:30 P.M. We were rush to order our food due to the kitchen and restaurant closing at 9 p.m.. ON A FRIDAY NIGHT.?? In fairness of the resturant the food was made and served to our liking. Calimari was...a hit as an appetizer.However By the time our food arrived we were the only patrons sitting and told resturant was closed but that we did not have to hurry to finish our meal. My biggest complaint about this place is it's dark, could use a good polishing (scrub) and some dam ambiance besides looking back at Oakland's beautiful night's sky. Which I left behind, to come here( Alameda) to eat. Again in fairness the food was good And with a coupon offer, I would go back for a second look. Fredrick AndrewsMore

Great food with an unbeatable view. The carbonara was delicious. Caesar with anchovies. Good service bread served with oil, balsamic, garlic and Parmesan. Save room for homemade tiramisu and espresso. Worth a repeat.

Wonderful Mediterranean Menu in a charming location across from Jack London Square. Eat downstairs, large full bar upstairs. Entertainment sometimes. Dine around 5 - 7 and see the parade of sailboats coming home from a day of sailing. Sat & Sunday is best to see...the racers returning from the Bay with colorful spinakers up. Next to the Commodore fleet of party boats.More

This restaurant is located on the Alameda side of the Oakland estuary and is directly across from Jack London Square. The view at night or on a sunny day when the sailboats are gliding by is really nice. The food is always good and reasonably...priced. Hadi, the owner, is almost always there making sure you get the attentive service you deserve. Although I enjoy all of their pastas, I often order the veal picatta because it is one of the few places in the Bay Area you can get reasonably priced veal.More
