After walking the wharf and Ghirardelli Square we needed a break to rest our feet and Capurro's is just the place. We tried their bar bites. I would recommend the calamari, mussels, tacos and pizza were delicious and at $4 each, they were a good deal. However I will pass on the clam chowder in the sour dough it was... More

We are at Capurro's Restaurant 6 years ago and my husband had dreams about the crab pasta he ate then. We went back and it was exactly like he remembered the pasta. I had some too and it was exceptional. If you enjoy Italian cuisine this is the place to go, located on Fishermans Warf. The service was great and... More

we ate in here twice & also popped in for a drink twice. The food was good & the staff were very friendly - felt like a neighborhood place in a busy tourist area

We went here for lunch on a Saturday and it was all right. The food wasn't really anything special relative to some of the other seafood in the area. We would have been better off ordering many of the happy hour special small meals versus the food we got. Expensive and not great.

Went to this restaurant a couple of times while staying across the street. The food was good and the servers were attentive. My husband doesn't eat seafood, so the variety on the menu was good for us. This restaurant is also reasonably priced for the area (near Fisherman's Wharf, so some places are expensive).

We stopped by for a later dinner after a full day. We wanted to enjoy a bottle of wine and some good food. We were seated promptly and that was a plus as it was still hopping at 9:30. We ordered the calamari, caprese and a few others. The calamari was not crispy and not cooked well. The caprese was... More

Decided on a whim to try out this restaurant as it was just getting busy. Was greeted with a smile and shown to a table immediately. Started filling up pretty quickly but mostly families who appeared to be tourists like me. I ordered the seafood pasta, which was linguine with prawns, mussel, clams and fish. Quite tasty though not quite... More

Had lunch here and found the service to be very slow and the food at best fair. Ordered "jumbo" shrimp cocktail which was anything but. The shrimp were what tiny and the shrimp cocktail sauce was watery and had no taste. Crab sandwich and fish tacos were okay. Probably would not eat here again.
