This place is as good as you've heard. Just be warned -- it takes no reservations, and any party larger than a couple is going to have to wait (and wait) for one of the few larger tables. Still, it's worth it. This place exudes history, authenticity, and love of eating. The prices aren't low, but the quality is extremely high and the portions large. Even better than the food, though, is the ambiance. Sotto Mare is the kind of place you'd kill to have in your city. Loved it!

The best ousters in the city!!!
Try the baccala. But any of the pastas with sea food are a must. I love this place. Sitting at the bar is fun and kitchen is open.

Every time I visit San Francisco I search for the best Cioppino and this trip I found it! Great North Beach atmosphere and friendly service. You can sit along the bar and watch the chefs make every meal.

This restaurant thoroughly deserves its rating. Amazing seafood - and great value, with generous portions. Fast, friendly service, a great atmosphere, and a no-reservations policy for tables of 2 or less - which makes it easy to get a table if you arrive early enough. Try the blue cheese iceberg wedge to start - it's enormous.

My only regret is that we ended up leaving a fairly miserly tip as we were carrying less cash than we thought - so hopefully the staff will see this and know how grateful we really were for this amazing meal!
