Enjoyed really good pasta dishes with excellent old school service. Began with clam chowders which to be honest we’re a little thick & may have been sat on hot plate waiting to be served. They didn’t taste as good as prevuonrs we had enjoyed elsewhere...More

The location is beyond limits. Near the sea, golden Gate and Alcatraz. With the sea lions bulking in the back it’s easy to wait 40 mins to be seated. Waiters vary from cleaners to well knowledgeable wine connoisseurs in old fashioned oversized suites. But that’s...More

It’s an old fashion but comfortable place. I asked for the crab bisque. It tastes well but a little bit soiled. Also tried the clam chowder. Ver thick and hot, not too flavored as expected. And the crab cocktail. I asked without sauce to taste...More
