We ordered Rissoto, Cioppino and clam chowder. The first two were great to have. They were rated high on the ranking which I agree. The atomosphare was okay, not gorgeous. Not great date place, but rather place for eating with great friends. They do not have dessert menu.

This place is a real find located in the "North Beach", Italian section of San Francisco. The Manilla clams are great. They are known mostly for their seafood. Great food and great prices. One of my favorite places.

If you are a seafood lover like my wife and I are, give this little gem a try. We tried several menu items, and were very impressed. We will be back for another visit when we return next summer!

The food was great. It is mainly seafood but all done very well. The place is always packed so get a reservation or hoped for the best. If you are solo you can often get a seat at the bar if on the early side.

We had the Cioppino and clam chowders which were both excelleent, good to the very last drop! Atmosphere is cosy. Will definitely return to try the oysters and fish next time! Price for the Cioppino had gone up though,..
