We stumbled upon this restaurant as originally we were aiming to grab a pizza from Golden Boy Pizza and it was packed so wandered a few feet down and found this great restaurant. We rocked in after 8.30pm seated right away in a booth. It...More

It was our best family dinner in California. It is a splendid restaurant with special positive energy. They are serving the best Cioppino in San Francisco! The service is fast and very friendly. Pasta for kids is delicious.

This must eat restaurant doesn’t need any help from me in filling itself everyday. It’s my favourite fish restaurant by a long stretch and if you have limited days in San Francisco and can’t make your mind up where you can eat then make sure...More

Really busy and we hadn’t booked but we’re seated pretty quickly at the counter. Delicious oysters and cioppini (amazing tomato based seafood soup with muscles, clams, crab legs, calamari). So delicious I can’t wait to go back.

After waiting to be seated, we were stuck in the stuffy basement in the corner. Our waitress acted like serving us was an inconvenience. I've had a better meal at Fazzolis. I can't believe this place was rated so highly.

Had a great meal here with wife and friends. One of the best restaurant cioppinod I have ever had. Noodles were a nice addition and did not detract from the excellent flavor of the seafood medley.

Best rissotto outside Italy! Loved the chaos and music (that is if you can hear it!) And the Chiopino forget about it!! When we return, we shall return.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

I think they will split a regular order for two persons, but I don’t think there are half orders. It’s very reasonably price and terrific.

No reservations for parties of three or less. 6pm is a good walk in time.

There are several options all within walking distance of this restaurant. We ended up in a saloon that was 2 blocks last away that had some really fin blues bands playing. Once you find the restaurant, just walk around... More
