“oGood food & friendly service”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We thought the food was good and were very happy with our cioppino. We had a great time sharing steamy dishes of pasta and seafood with wine and bread. The kitschy decor made the dinner fun and we took silly pictures with the paintings of fishermen. The server was very nice and took good care of us after we were told we couldn't be served in other establishments in the neighborhood. It wasn't really late for dinner, especially in SF but perhaps the locals in this neighborhood were not feeling our multiethnic group. My black friends were certain we weren't served in other nearby spots because of racism, I don't doubt them. So, we were very happy that we were treated eel here and our waiter spoke spanish to this Mexicana and was gay friendly too :)

“The food is not good here.”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

We dropped in for a light meal and were shocked by the tacky decor.

Then we tasted the mediocre bread and were further dismayed. Our green salad was soggy with a garlic-laden, watery dressing. The mussels were okay but again, too garlicky...and we love garlic.

There are lots of good restaurants in this North Beach neighbourhood, but Caffe Sport isn't one of them.

“Food that exceeds looks.”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Caffe Sport is a gem amongst the North Beach area of S.F. Authentic family style cuisine and supreme service, comfortable atmosphere, and quite affordable food comprises this rough diamond in the rough. A definite return visit on my return to S.F.

Really good italian dinner. Big House salad, home made spinach and cheese ravioli plus a glass of vine, outstanding dinner.

“Great atmosphere, okay food”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

The service and the eclectic atmosphere were great but the food was not the best. The pasta dish was awful, but the fish stew was pretty good. With so many choices in the area for great food, I think one visit here was enough.
