Food was good and fairly priced for the area of town. The service was extremely poor. It took us 20 mins to get in a drink order, and over the course of an hour and a half had to track down a server (any server in the restaurant) to help us multiple times.

Having dined at places like A16 this week, this restaurant was pure disappointment. You would be better off going to chipotle or another $10 per person restaurant versus spending more at a place like this. The pasta is not homemade and you can get such better food and service elsewhere in the city.

I would like to say I work across from this place but never gone to it for years! I think many people would think this is a “tourist trap” simply because it is so close to the wharf. The food was actually exceptional and the service were great! I am so glad restaurant week had brought me here :) definitely interesting in coming on a regular day

Good food, salad is the way I like it: right portion, dressing the perfect creamy level and taste just right with the fresh green.
Same with the pasta: taste perfect and the sauce fit great with pasta, no more and no less. The chef is great. Definitely will visit again if I’m in the neighborhood. Can’t wait.

Our recent visit was a bit disappointing as remodeling work had made the pizza oven unavailable, so our kids had to quickly reconsider their dinner choices. The staff was apologetic and very accommodating to ensure everyone got entrees they liked. Our dinner focused on seafood and pasta dishes, which were well-prepared and very good overall, but not unique in the Fisherman's Wharf area of San Francisco. However, our most memorable experience was with Pescatore's desserts, which were surprisingly good. The mixed berries with zabaglione, the tiramisu, the pear bread pudding, and the unusual (but delicious) cinnamon gelato were big hits.

A quiet lunch on New Year’s Day. We are gluten-free, dairy free. The waiter and kitchen were accommodating and helpful. Definitely where are you here again when we are in the neighborhood. Italian and Mediterranean. We learned that heated olives are far far better!

I was in town for the weekend for a football game with my family. We didn’t pack any dress clothes, so looked for a casual atmosphere. The host greeted us promptly, showed us to our table. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was very good. The major downfall was that we were seated near a door that went to the attached hotel. The door was broken and would not close with each set of passers through. The result was a very drafty and cold experience. The staff told me that they were working on fixing the door, but no work was done while we were there and one of the other waitstaff was defensive when my family and I continually got up to close the door. I would recollect the restaurant, as the food was very good. Just beware of sitting in the back near the door. It made for an unpleasant event.

Came for Thanksgiving dinner fixed menu. Wildly overpriced at $45, no bread included. Odd pairing of mac ´n’ cheese with a turkey dinner and spinach salad. Food was well-prepared, cocktail was excellent. Service spotty.

first of all, it was VERY LOUD (need to put in noise dampening ceiling tiles and/or other noise deadening furniture, etc.

the service was GREAT ! and the food (I had chicken parmesan) is superb. I would recommend this to anyone, and caution them to bring earplugs ...

I liked the restaurant ambiance very much but my dinner was not good. I’m Italian and pappardelle was under cooked and rather flavorless. I was very dissolved since it was the waiters 1st. choice of favorites but my husband absolutely loved his linguine with clams and I agree. I made the wrong choice.

This restaurant was a wonderful fine as we searched for a location nearby our hotel in San Francisco. It is a lovely place within Hotel Zoe. My husband even commented about how his drink was excellent. I had the crab cakes from the appetizer section with a side which I thoroughly enjoyed. The ambiance is perfect for any occasion. The wait staff is excellent. Enjoy!!!!

The service was really lacking. We sat in the bar so maybe that was the problem but I never like having to ask for more to drink and my check. The pasta dishes were also just ok. The seafood pasta the fish was over cooked. The pasta itself was good but both sauces didn’t have much flavor.

Wood fired pizza was superb, other dishes great. The waiter, Marlo, was the most friendly, accommodating (food allergies, special dishes) and efficient we've seen out of possibly 40ish restaurant meals in the past month across a half dozen cities. Two adults, 3 kids and a couple of drinks $140 pre-tip for a lunch, back for dinner and $185. Food comes quickly, no pressure to leave. Desserts fabulous. Delivers what it promises.
