Incredible location near Fishermans Wharf only enhances the "old school" elegance of the white tablecloth and white jacketed ambiance. No modernism needed here but you have to have a reservation or expect to wait an hour for delicious and inventive yet classic Italian seafood dishes. The beet salad was fresh and tasty with a surprise of avocado and the zing of shavings of horseradish root. Cioppino in homemade-style marinara sauce was great. Our only regret was skipping dessert to catch another beautiful sunset over the bay.

This is a very nice restaurant on Fisherman's Wharf very upscale food and dining all the tables are close together it makes for a nice couples dinner or just a good celebration view is not the greatest because it is of the docks but the overall atmosphere is very pleasant would highly recommend this food was good although pricey it was still very good

I've been here a few times, and am never disappointed. Food is delicious, service impeccable and drinks yummy. Elizabeth was our server this trip, and she was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. The views are lovely! Portions are large, just an fyi. I LOVE the calamari! You can literally taste the freshness, as it isn't as tough as others I've had. Highly recommend getting it!! It's on Pier 47, and if you Google map the directions, they take you straight there. We walked from the trolley drop off, and it took maybe 10min. I love that it's set back from the hustle and bustle of the pier/wharf traffic. Seriously, it's a must try if you'll be visiting the City!!!

What a wonderful experience! The wait is worth it! Service is beyond excellent! Place is a buried treasure "on the coast" Surrounded by "ships of the port" It's gotta be fresh ⛵️ you have the hardest time deciding, but I have my favorite! You will to. Every trip to San Fran, it is a must stop for me. If you have room, desserts are a must. Sit back, trust the wait staff and you're in for a most present experience.

When in San Francisco you have to eat here. Excellent seafood.
Our waiter was outstanding and very helpful. Said he's been there for 30 years. Now that says something about the management.
Our food came out fast, hot and plentiful. I had the "best" seafood platter I've ever had anywhere. The others in our party had the same sentiments about their meal.
The restaurant is at the water front and has a very nice atmosphere.
And the drinks weren't half bad either.
