The restaurant looks really good from outside and at 1st glance the menu looks good with a gluten free option which my wife needs. However once inside the place doesn't live up to expectations. The service was cold and the staff uninterested, the gluten free meals had a supplement and the food to be honest was very average and forgettable.... More

After a long day of biking the Golden Gate Bridge and visiting Alcatraz, we craved a home cooked meal not far from our fabulous hotel, The Argonaut. It seems most of the patrons were locals.

We enjoyed a beautiful meal here, on our 1st night in SAN Francisco. The waiter was very attentive, made recommendations for our appetizers and entrees. Loved the atmosphere and ambience. Food was delicious. We will be back, when in the area.

A great option for a family who isn't crazy about seafood amid the crab shacks that line SF's Fisherman's Wharf. Food was good, service was great.

I know it's down on Fishermans warf next to the ocean......known for seafood. But when a place has the Italian flag as part of their logo, one would except Italian food. We were seated right away, but had to wait almost 15min before the waiter came and took out drink orders. However cause the time it took, we had time... More

Had dinner here with a colleague and tried the Cioppino stew. It was great. Would go back there again just for the stew! Highly recommend.

This Restaurant was very close to our Hotel. The Menu looked appetizing so we walked in. Our waiter was friendly and helpful with his recommendations. I ordered the Scampi Linguini with a side of vegetables of the day and my friend ordered the Fish and Chips with coleslaw. Our meal came with some yummy garlic bread. The linguine was delicious,...

The restaurant was warm and homey. The service was friendly, our waiter was very attentive. The food was served after only a short wait, and everything tasted very good.

Went there to meet friends after a helicopter ride over the city. Great drinks at the bar, and the ambience was perfect for the night.

A Fisherman's Wharf Tradition. Fresh seafood and Italian fare, located right in the heart of it all. The best Cioppino in the city. Great food at reasonable prices.
