The food was delicious! We tried to call ahead for reservations, but the wouldn't take it for just two people... so we waited about 45 minutes. The clam chowder was wonderful & full of taste.

Service was good and quick, food was delicious. Sat outside which was a little chilli in the evening but well worth it.

Sotto Mare has a great neighborhood feel and excellent food. The risotto, sand dabs and clam chowder were phenomenal

This is the kind of no-nonsense restaurant that captures the homemade feeling and serves top sea food. With a large counter to watch the cooking and small tables on one side, plus a few outside, it is the perfect place to just relax, have a...More

Great Northern Italian Restaurant. Great Seafood. The Cioppino for two is probably the best in the city but can't go wrong with any of their seafood.

Not a very large restaurant but excellent seafood. We dined here on our anniversary and had an excellent experience. The food is outstanding and the service is fine. We will be back next time in San Francisco.

I had read many reviews that Sotto Mare serves up some of the freshest and tastiest seafood in SF. The food didn't disappoint! The seafood pastas were delicious, and the portions were generous, with proper proportions of seafood in the dish (they aren't stingy). However,...More

High expectations not met, please read on to learn why… I’ve heard of Sotto Mare for years. It’s a perennial SF favorite that adorns many "best of" lists. We got a chance to try in May but were disappointed. The service was good. But none...More

Family of 5. We went there for lunch and were amazed by the delicious food there. Simply the best italian seafood we have had in years and clearly the best since our time in Sardinia! Go with their specialty blindly. A must visit while one...More

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.

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

This is a restaurant, not a bar. The food is outstanding, and mostly fish. You can order beer and wine . As far as I know there is no happy hour serving alcoholic drinks and reduced price snacks (appiteasers).

Sorry but I'm not sure if this can be done. Best suggestion would be to call the restaurant directly. They are very helpful and would likely address your question.......
