I went there with a colleague
I went there with a colleague for dinner. I had the tuna tartare which was a bit too sour for my taste. For my main dish I had the Bianca pizza which was good, but not the best. The service started a little slow and wasn't that attentive. However, at the end one of the servers greeted us and gave us a free desert and thanked us for our business. That individual touch made it a much better experience, hence the 5 stars on service. I would go again and may try something else.

A gem close to Fisherman's Wharf
Pescatore was a gem located right off of the Wharf. The service was very good as was the food. Although it was a little cold, their willingness to modify their menu to meet the needs of our picky eaters was greatly appreciated. A too go back to place!

We had a wonderful time. The crab was awesome and the Fedora drinks we're awesome. Only a short walk from our hotel. It was all perfect.

This is a nice, Italian restaurant
This is a nice, Italian restaurant just off the wharf. The beer, wine, and cocktail selections were great. Appetizers were fantastic and the service was great.

not your average hotel resteraunt
We booked out of convenience aftter a long day out in the city. Did not expect too much from a hotel bar but it was very good with great menu and friendly service.

a nice place
We had 2 double rooms at the Tuscan Inn for a family wedding reunion so meeting at piscatore was a great option the staff was good...we've eaten here for years and enjoy most of the newer redesign, the menu no longer has polenta available it used to be my favorite brunch...well things change. We ate 2 breakfasts for 7 there and one dinner for 2...it was good.

You felt like one of the family.
You felt like one of the family. From the moment you walked in to time you left. The wait staff made sure your every need was taken care of. Our courses were served in a timely manner, ensuring that you didn't feel rushed, but didn't feel like you were waiting. Everything was Fresh, hot and was full of flavor. I will make it a point to stop in again next time we're in the San Francisco area. You will not be disappointed.

Fine, but not fancy
I was expecting a bit nicer place as I booked for Mothers Day Brunch. Felt like a diner but without a counter. Not exactly a "date night" restaurant.
We waited a good 5 minutes for anyone to come to our table. Our drinks and food arrived quickly (except that he brought the salad after all the other food). But our water glasses were empty and no one refilled them without our asking - a cardinal sin! Food was good. Eggs Florentine was delicious, as was the French toast and the chicken panini sandwich. Champagne above average. Would I go here again? Yes, but not for a special occasion.

Great Italian Restaurant
Able to get a reservation 1-2 days out using Open Table App.
Food was good and prices were reasonable.
We were seated close to the bar at 7:30 and it was difficult to hold a conversation due to the bar being loud and an expressive table next to us, but after 8:15 it mellowed out when the bar cleared out and the table next to us left. You may want to request a table in the back before 8:30.
Have to say that it's hard to believe this restaurant got 3 stars on Yelp. We will be back!

Wonderful People work here
Treat to have a staff that actually seems to be professional and enjoys what they are doing. They treated my grandson like a real customer, and I think it shocked him at first, but in the end he was impressed
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had the calamari and the cioppino, which they split into two serving bowls so we could share. Very fresh, delicious! The service was great despite it being a holiday and they were very busy.
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice for lunch. Also has parking
Nice for lunch. Also has parking close, which is nice in San Francisco. Would have liked to try the cioppino, but they do not serve it for lunch. Crab ravioli's were very good. Close to Pier 39, and other sites to see. Overall good experience.

Great dinner, reasonable prices
My daughters and I found Pescatore on Open Table's website while looking for a restaurant close to Pier 33 in San Francisco. We were coming back from a trip to Alcatraz and needed a good place to go for dinner. Pescatore was great -- great service, great food, very reasonable prices.

Great, family-owned and run gem
After cycling in to Sasaulito on a tourist filled August Sunday, I was greeted with warmth and politeness, in spite of the restaurant being very busy. Our waiter, Victor, served in the most attentive way, while busily attending to other tables in the same, professional manner. Auxiliary staff were equally polite and attentive. The food was excellent. No complaints here, only accolades.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We stayed in fishermans wharf for a few days. Great pizza, excellent appetizers, and the crab ravioli was very unique. I will definitely dine when I visit again

The chicken panini with salad was good and a good value for the price, but I can't say the same about the crab cake trio of sliders. The taste was certainly good, but it wasn't a very good value. For $14.00 you got three small crab cakes on slider rolls (good bread, by the way) but no side green salad or anything else - just the three sliders. My friend shared some of her salad from her panini plate with me because she had plenty and just that little bit she gave me on the bread plate was perfectly fine. So it would really be nice if they served those crab cake sliders with some side greens, even if it is just a little. But the taste was really good.

Lovely, light food
We had great cocktails and a lovely meal, in warm, welcoming surroundings, served by helpful and friendly staff. After several days of being overwhelmed by US portion sizes, it was a relief to see that Pescatore favours quality over quantity.

Great meal in good loacation
If you are near Fisherman's Wharf and want a good meal with excellent service, this is the place.

This was a wonderful experience. The young man at the front was able seat us outside, I know this took some figuring. Our waitress was lovely, knew how to be attentive without being overwhelming. Overall--nice experience.

Pescatore - SF Neighborhood Place
Enjoyed this restaurant for both dinner one evening, and then breakfast the following day. Food was excellent, with generous portions. Wine was high quality, and service was excellent overall. A bit of a lag between the time dessert was ordered, but more than made up by the kind service provided by the wait staff. Very casual dining experience, with a nice and varied menu. Very short walk south of Fisherman's Wharf.

Some seasoning required
We visited Pescatore with a friend while visiting the San Francisco area. We all enjoyed our meals, but each of them was a little on the bland side, so be prepared to break out the salt and pepper. We tried the calamari for an appetizer and found the breading just a touch on the heavy side. Both my companions ordered fish (the halibut and salmon) and, with the exception of the lack of seasoning, both were good. My crab cioppino was a significant serving with an abundance of seafood - I ended up needing help to finish the entire serving. The gelato was a very nice finish to our meal - sweet, but not overpoweringly so. We were able to specify one scoop chocolate and two cinnamon (the cinnamon was delicious!)

We enjoyed our dinner. God was very good. excellent servers, they really added to evening and we had fun with them!

it was a good mistake
was actually wanting to go to the place next to Gary Danko's but i was glad we ended up here instead. The server was fun and food was great.

Best food on or near the Wharf
Great food, great service, great experience (and smells like a fine restaurant-not like Fisherman's Wharf!). iked the place so much we ate there on three occasions during our eight day stay in S.F.

Great time to be had!
We came here for a meal, and ended up having a food experience that was magnificent.
We are going again - for our anniversary tonight!

Great Italian & superb service
Visiting for a few days. Was attracted by the good reviews on tripadvisor. Good choice. The service and the food was delicious. We ordered the 4 cheese pizza, the meatball pasta, tuna tartare, tomato soup. Enjoyed our meal thoroughly!!

Brunch is a plus
I've dined here for dinner and thought it was outstanding. Went back for brunch and to my suprise, the brunch menu was charming, the staff was polite and we have great service for 9am. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the hollandaise sauce for the crab benedict was rich and creamy with a little tang. The french toast was a bit dry for my liking but the bacon was salty and chewy and delicious. Must try their giant ham steak next time.

WHAT A FIND
I found this restaurant on Open Table while searching for restaurants for a upcoming trip. Wow, what a find. The food was delicious and our waiter Marlowe was exceptional!!! He was so friendly and attentive. He bought me a diet coke because I could not decide between a soda or a drink. I chose the drink but I got both!! We even received a special appetizer treat for being "Honored Open Table Guests". That has never happened before. We will surely visit Pescatore again if we are in the San Francisco area and tell all our friends too.

A REAL FIND NEAR FISHERMANS' WHARF!
OMG, what a lovely restaurant! The menu was varied and moderately priced, the wine list was choice, the service was terrific. My salmon was one of the best I have ever had, along with the rsotto, and my husband's sea bass was also delicious. It was a terrific find for us, we are pleased to recommend it
