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.

This restaurant has fresh seafood daily. The food was amazing. The best scallops I have ever had. We went twice and it was absolutely worth waiting. This place is packed every night. The owner was very nice and served us wine while waiting for our...More

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.

The fish was outstanding and our wallet was extremely happy, but the service is marginal at best. Expect a long wait, having while your credit card is held hostage so they get their beeper back. Once seated at a counter, your order will be taken...More

Sotto Mare was the one place I absolutely insisted that we have a meal at in Frisco - after seeing cioppino on several travel shows, I was fixated on dining here. So we did, and it was pretty good. The room is small and it...More

I visited here twice. The first time, a warm evening during Fleet Week, I was by myself and had to wait almost an hour for a seat. The table manager remembered my name and kept coming by giving me updates as I entertained myself talking...More

I would DRIVE from Fort Worth to San Francisco to eat here. Love the food (understatement of the year) but LOVE the owner even more. We spent the hour-long wait for a seat drinking wine with Richie and hearing his story and I couldn’t be...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.

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.
