We went there twice, first visit was better than the second.... first time we had a great ceasar salad with crab and a really good bottle of savingnon blanc from New Zealand . The service was very good. However we returned for dinner as we stayed directly opposite the restaurant, and it was not as good as what we expected!... More

Fish and pasta dishes are good. But paying a 9% tax, plus a 4% Government fee is crazy. I was told is used towards California health insurance, but many Californians are actually unaware of the fee.

Stopped over on a lazy monday afternoon for a couple of tacos and a beer. Not many patrons around but great smiley service and a nice place to sit back for a chat.

I had the whole crab and he had a sandwich. The crab is quite strangely prepared, Baked with a lot of onion and a wine sauce. The strong flavours hurt the delicate flavour of the Dungeness crab. Nor was it "whole". All you get are claws. The back meat (my favourite) is removed. I guess they need it for other... More

We entered the restaurant during happy hour and took a few small bytes and a beer. Service was good and the food not too bad, but nothing special. Location is perfect, just a few hundred meters from the overcrowded Pier 39.

Good food and service A nice restaurant in a quieter section on Fishermans wharf overlooking water. Had an after dinner drink in bar area. Very cozy sitting area. Bar menu also available. The Bartender Michael was a pleasure to talk to. Made it a total enjoyable experience.

Capurro's was a nice place to slip into after walking the streets for a while. Service and food are good. Sand dabs (fish) were very tasty and their hamburgers are nice size and come with fries.

After a long haul from the UK, we just wanted to have a light meal to end a very long day. This place was perfect. The service received was astounding with very attentive waiters who were polite and accommodating. The food was good and reasonably priced for the location. We had a pizza and a chicken grilled sandwich. Yummy....... Try... More

I went for dinner at Capurro's because it was a conference destination for a large dinner. The combination of Fisherman's Wharf and conference dinner on a budget had me worried, but the restaurant went all out. The prices of drinks were low cost and I noticed they also had a good happy hour. The dinner was well done and the... More

Arrived at Capurros a little before 8 pm on. Friday evening. Restaurant was full but there was only one family in front of us. Was told the wait would be about 15 minutes. We were seated 40 minutes later. Strike 1. I don't mind a wait but I do mind when the amount of time far exceeds what was verbalized.... More
