We chanced across Scoma's and thank goodness we did. Outstanding food and service and atmosphere! We got there early and managed to get a table in the front room. It is very touristy but the food and service does not reflect that. Worth every penny and the ferry ride from Fishermans wharf.

While recently staying in San Francisco we were recommended to go to this Italian/seafood restaurant. Book a reservation beforehand if you can as it is a hopping spot especially on weekends.

Fish brought in freshly caught daily... pasta which was outstanding.

Would eat there again and again!

I was in San Francisco for a conference and was told this place was worth a visit.
I checked on TripAdvisor, and thought it sounded interesting.
They were right!
The place was buzzing on a Saturday not got.
A line of people waiting up to 40 minutes for a table did not put new arrivals off.
In my experience, well worth the wait. Suggest you get your name down for a table, then grab a drink while you wait.
The pasta between bolognese was fabulous !

So much variety of seafood that you could not help but eat it all ! Great flavor and you gotta eat the sourdough and dip in the sauce. The clam chowder is also very good but a Bit pricey. Be careful where you park your car especially a rental. Don't leave anything in it as some local might want to smash and grab what you have inside especially computers !

Our 2nd time to eat here, years apart! Food is still delicious and fresh, straight from the dock. Lovely old style dining vibe. Our waiter was great, unfortunately don't recall his name. He has worked there for decades.
