Oven Roasted Crab, Delicious!
Our reservations were at 6:30, we ordered drinks from the happy hour menu,(5-7) $5 for a good martini. For dinner we chose the wood oven roasted dungeness crab! We started out with a cub of warm clam chowder, delicious,it helped warm us up from the SF chill. With dinner we ordered the house white wine it went very well with the crab. Our crabs arrived with a bib, which we needed as we cracked the crab. The sauce was a white wine sauce with garlic, red pepper flakes and other delicious spices. The crab was cooked in the pizza oven and turned half way through, the juices from the crab making up the rest of the sauce. We dipped our sourdough bread to soak up the sauce, savoring each bite. Service was excellent! Great dinner!

Just a nice family driven
Just a nice family driven place, friendly and all in one just a nice place. Even though it is in the touristic spot they do not try to overprice and prices are fair. Got a groupon and it was totally worth it!

We arrived at the restaurant at the reservation time and was seated immediately. We both ordered the Woodstone Roasted Crab. I had the ceasar salad and my husband had the pasta w/marinara. Both were very good. The crab was the best I've had. I will definitely be returning.

Generally the food and service
Generally the food and service were really good. It did take three requests to get additional bread and the busboy was the one who finally fulfilled the request and then all was right in the world. The woodstone crab was wonderful and cooked to perfection and with the additional bread the meal was complete.

My partner and I dined with
My partner and I dined with a groupon for the crab dinner. The service was outstanding and attentive. The red chowder was bland, devoid of body or content and resembled a canned tomato soup. The Caesar salad never met an anchovy and was only sightly more familiar with Parmesan. But these weren't the items we came for.
The crabs were wonderful. The roasted was served in a tasty broth which invited sopping and the steamed was supplied with clarified butter. Both were perfectly cooked, exceptionally delights to the tongue.
Finally the butterscotch pudding was rich and a great finish.

We were in San Francisco for a ball game and went to Capurro's for lunch. They make the best wood roasted crab! The staff was excellent and the owner, Paul was very nice. They welcome you at the door and the courtesy continued all the way through!

Great for crab, delicious.
We enjoyed the roasted crab, they were small but very tasty. The service was excellent, friendly, helpful and courtesy. We have lived in San Francisco all my life and never tried this restaurant, glad we had a coupon that made us come to find this restaurant. Having a parking lot is definitely a plus, especially with all the construction going on.

We had the roasted crab. It was delivered quickly and with all the necessary amenities. Our service from Eli and Nurf was impeccable.

We'll be back for more!
It was our first visit to Capurro's and I didn't know what to expect. We all had the roasted crab dinner which was excellent. We'll definitely visit again!
Our waiter was great, the service was excellent and everyone was very friendly.

Give itn a Try
Capurro's was a decent dining experience on the wharf. The food was good. Overall, my dining experience was average. Nothing exceptional or notably bad to say.

Freshest Fish on the Wharf ! !
We live in San Francisco and have visited a few of the restaurants on the wharf. This by far surpassed all of our expectations. Fresh fish, top notch service, all around a great place to have an authentic seafood/italian dinner. Thanks and we will be back again.

Service has improved
We bring friends here from out of town when they request seafood. We have enjoyed the Italian
preparations and the fun atmosphere, but the service style has been shockingly unsophisticated, given all the competition for the diner's dollar in SF. Either the restaurant has stepped it up overall, or they got lucky with a competent and understated pair of servers who were excellent at their jobs and realized they weren't there to clown, flirt, or talk about drinking too

Their roast crab was so delicious! Nice, updated interior and great service too... all in the thick of Fisherman's Wharf.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cappurro's was a nice surprise. The food was great and the service was excellent! The construction outside and the traffic were the inky negative points. But it is located in a touristy part of SF so it was to be expected
All in all my party of two had a wonderful experience!
6/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was good, although I expected the roasted crab to be more flavorful but overall i liked it. The clam chowder (white) was magnificent and so was the tiramisu. The service I'm sure could have been outstanding but it was quite busy and the servers were running from here to there. Plus my to go order was not what it should have been still I totally enjoyed my dinner.
However I will be returning and I'm sure my review will have 5 stars in lieu of 4. Oh and definitely try the Parmeo (sp?) drink, sooo good.

I've eaten at Capurro's with family and friends. The food is great and it has a great neighborhood feel. I like the fact that they treat locals as well as the tourists trade, and they remember you after awhile which is always inviting. The food is divine and if one loves crab and shrimp, this is your best bet. Portions are very respectful. Bring an appetite.

Great place to dine if visiting the wharf. I drove and picked up friends at hir hotel. So grateful for te available parking behind the restaurant.

Very good food and service! Highly recommend! Would go back for sure!

Amazing service, really good food
A group of us went here tonight. The service was astounding; my daughter dropped her drink on the table and within seconds there were two people cleaning it up; not a drop went off the table or on her dress. Drinks and food were serviced perfectly. The Gnocchi with fresh crab in pesto sauce is to die for!
The single mar in the experience was some polenta; it was truly awful, gritty and pasty. I will absolutely return. If not for the polenta, this would have been a perfect evening. (They were seating a banquet for 50-60 people at the same time our dinner was served!)

Traditional seafood prepared well
This is not a fancy gourmet restaurant, but rather a nice place that serves fresh seafood prepared well. I ate there recently with my husband and 11 year old daughter. I had the petrale sole piccata which came with a shrimp risotto and vegetables, all very nicely done. My husband ordered the salmon which was modest in size but very fresh. My daughter was satisfied with the gnocchi which were in a rich pesto cream sauce, unfortunately without any vegetables. Service was friendly and accommodating. On a Tuesday evening it was not busy.

Great food, Friendly, Reasonable
Chose this restaurant because of the good reviews and only two $$ on the Open Table chart. We had to wait 5-10 minutes for our table, but the owner chatted us up as we waited, explaining the specials. My wife had the half crab - delicious. Son had the white chowder bread bowl and devoured it. I had the swordfish skewer - as the owner mentioned, not normally his favorite but "my son the chef really does this one well". I agree. The lemon risotto was tasty and filling. But the best thing was a special request: Could the chef do a gorgonzola sauce instead of pesto for the gnocci? "Yes", and it was delicious. (Shared the plate as it's RICH) Dessert (2) Apple tart w/ caramel sauce & vanilla I.C, .& Cheescake w/ chocolate sauce. $110 total :)

Dreamforce team meeting
Our team wanted to review what we had learned and seen during the Dreamforce convention and we decided on Capurro's for dinner and drinks that night. The staff was wonderful. They were more than accommodating when we wanted to have 1 more drink at the bar before going in to dine. We had a waiter who was there when we needed him and when he saw that we were so busy talking, did not make us feel like we should hurry up and make some dinner choices. The food was wonderful - everything from the cold appetizer plate to the entrees to the desserts. It was a great night! Thank you Capurro's.

loved this place
i will go back again, and again as it was all perfection.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went there to have crab for Thanksgiving dinner. We also had the hot appetizer sampler, Caesar salad and dessert! It was a lovely meal, great food, excellent service and a very comfortable environment. By the way, we are locals, not tourists.

Brother's Bday dinner
Took my brother and niece out for his birthday...the owner greeted us with a smile that made us feel extra welcomed. my appetizer had a caterpillar on a spinach leaf but they were quick to fix the issue and brought out a different appetizer. The food was a perfect ten in taste! My brother enjoyed his dinner and even chatted with the owner afterwards. It's a great environment with good people and good food.

crab fest time
Looking for good seafood and lots of crab, this is the place
Can't go wrong with crab. The service was attentive and quick service
The chowder was good on a cold night and overall a good place to dine if you want seafood.
