We had an exceptional Valentine’s Day here!
I hadn't been there in years, and it is a fun North Beach spot. The food though seemed mass produced and was way too heavy on the sauces. Of course there are multiple pasta dishes and they do specialize in seafood, but I was disappointed in only one chicken dish and no veal...odd for an Italian restaurant. The Caesar salad was excellent as was the garlic bread. our son liked the pasta with meatballs, my chicken parmigiano was very good. My wife's filet of sole with zucchini sticks had so much sauce she did not enjoy. Portions are huge here. The head of the house and the wait staff were excellent.
When in San Francisco I have ventured into north beach at least once during a trip. I seem to always find myself looking forward to Caffe Sport. The food has lost something in the thirty years. It is also possible that I have lost something. Maybe both of us. I'm not going to try to find out.
The food was very mediocre. The staff was nice about accommodating our large group and we had two super picky eaters they accommodated as well. The staff was cheerful and the service was fine, but the food was very mediocre. I told the restaurant twice (both when I booked online and when I called earlier that evening to adjust the number in our party) that we needed to be out the door by a certain time to catch a show at Cobbs but they forgot and we had to chase down the bill. I want to like this place but they need to really step up the food in such a competitive area.
BEST PESTO EVER!!! Scampi, Salmon, Sole were all super fresh and delicious. We also had the fried eggplant over penne and the garlic bread is to die for.
Stag was very welcoming and friendly. Food was fresh and authentic Sicilian.
I now live in Colorado but always try to make time for Cafe Sport. One of my favorite SF places to eat.
We were disappointed in the food...it was not near as good as in the past years that we have been going there. Also, the portions are smaller and the price higher...not a good sign 🤔😕
Food and service was good but seating was not. We were seated on the table for two right by the door and hit with cold draft when some one exited or entered . We had specially selected this place to celebrate our 38th marriage anniversary at the recommendation of a friend and we made a note when booking the table but management didn't care about the occasion and didn't acknowledge . Wish we were seated at the better table or booth
Seating is a challenge otherwise, I would recommend to others
Loads of character. Very accommodating staff. Food OK but not special for the price. I'd recommend, but more for the scene than the food
Excellent food and waiters were really polite!
Fantastic! Great service, great ambiance and outstanding food! Definitively coming back. Jose, the owner was so friendly and helpful as every single employee. Highly recommend
One of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco by far. I’ve been coming here beer since I was little. I 1000% recommend!
Authentic Italian to the extreme - you can tell as so many Italians were customers! Excellent service as well!
Cafe Sport has changed ownership and recipes.
I was a prior customer for over 20 years several special occasions
Shrimp Alfredo was watery vs thick garlic sauce.
Pesto noodles were under cooked and tough.
Portions are smaller.
Good for new customers , old customers will look for original Sicilian style cooking
I was hesitant after reading negative reviews since the change of ownership. This was our first visit so we had nothing to compare it to. It was thanksgiving and my daughter’s 13th birthday. We really enjoyed our experience at Caffe Sport. The place is unique, cozy, and charming, the food was delicious, and the service was friendly. I’d go back again and I recommend it.
