“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

The restaurant was ideally positioned to be something great. The food was tasty but lacked any sort of presentation, my husband particularly enjoyed the clam chowder. Service in this restaurant particularly let it down. Staff were not particularly friendly and service was slow. Far better meals can be enjoyed in North Beach and better value too.

“Nice Meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Great location near the wharf and close to our hotel. Had a great meal here can recommend the food especially the Clam Chowder and Clam Linguine. However it was very busy the night we were there and the service was not great. We were seated promptly and our orders were taken but the meal was slow in arriving and we didn't see the waiter again until the bill arrived.

“Great seafood, good beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

I ate a late lunch here whilst walking along the Embarcadero and Fisherman's Wharf. The server suggested the sea bass special, which was a great choice, flavourful and tender, and served with a generous basket of fries. The service was friendly and prompt, and the meal was excellent value, despite the restaurant being in the middle of one of San Francisco's tourist traps. I'd certainly recommend Capurro's to family and friends.

“Happy hour! Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

We had been out walking all day over the bridge and back to fishermans wharf needed a well earned drink so went in luckily it was happy hour, 3 dollar drinks and snacks we had cheesy garlic bread and a pizza and a couple of beers each for 18 dollars fantastic value for money and filled a little gap till dinner. It had a large restaurant that was quiet but it was early. The bar was busy though an staff were attentive. Nice place.
