Description

Alioto’s Restaurant, a San Francisco landmark located on Fisherman’s Wharf, is one of San Francisco’s oldest fine dining seafood restaurants specializing in traditional Sicilian recipes. To this day, the family name is closely associated with the City of San Fransisco itself. Alioto’s knows fish. The Restaurant began as a fresh fish stall on San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf in 1925. Since then, little has changed. Fish is still bought fresh daily by Alioto’s full time fish buyer. Alioto’s serves a tantalizing selection of fresh seafood, including sea bass, sand dabs, sole, swordfish, tuna, scallops, and Dungeness crab all caught locally, whenever possible. Alioto’s never skimps on the fish they purchase. Alioto’s fresh seafood is served charcoal grilled or griddle-fried. Or choose from Alioto’s Sicilian specialties that have been passed down the family. A favorite is Cioppino, a spicy tomato shellfish stew created by the restaurant’s founder, Rose Alioto. Or a Sicialian mixed grill, seafood cannelloni, shellfish risotto, or artichoke and arugula salad. Alioto’s San Francisco favorites include lightly pan-fried calamari that is unsurpassed, crab cakes, cracked crab, and homemade clam chowder. These dishes continue to be favorites of visitors and locals alike. Alioto’s restaurant is a culinary landmark that is still owned and operated by the descendants of the Nonna Rose Alioto who show the care and commitment of running a restaurant bearing their name. Oh, and our view is also famous.

Beautiful view, lovely atmosphere, great service and delicious food. By far the best restaurant myself and my family dined in whilst in San Francisco. Thanks for a lovely evening earlier this week, and the delicious dining experience. GooglePlace - September 2017

Excellent food and pretty good service. Lots of old photos on wall added to ambiance. A little difficult for the elders in our party but worth it GooglePlace - September 2017

My friend recommend this spot to take my husband for his birthday dinner. Let's just say I had a completely different experience than her. The service was horrible. We had reservation I asked when I called to be sat by a window. We sat right in the middle of the restaurant next to the kitchen. Still took them 15 minutes to seat us. ( we drive down from Sacramento) We ordered the crab 🦀 $60, and we had to ask several times to three different people for utinsils..... like the claw crackers and forks to dig the meat out. That should have came with the meal. Appetizers came out without my friends salad we again had to ask about. Needless you to say a total let down!!! GooglePlace - September 2017

Wonderful time to end a busy day at Fisherman's Wharf. Ordered the half lobster and crab with seasoned vegetables. My son and I loved it! The shrimp with crab appetizer was okay. The view was just what I was hoping for over looking the port and when the clouds dispersed the Golden Gate Bridge was visible. Beautiful! The service was good. I think the server was preoccupied with the two large parties that were seated before and after my son and I. But we weren't in any rush and didn't mind too much until we wanted to leave. It took the server 15 minutes to pick up our payment which is a long time to sit and wait with an 8 year old. Other than that he knew the menu very well and was adamant in telling him of any known allergies. Thank you! GooglePlace - August 2017

Alioto's is an upscale restaurant at the Fisherman's Wharf. We tried the New England Clam Chowder, Seafood Risotto, and the Seafood Stew. The clam chowder and risotto were both very nice. The seafood stew was more on the bland side. The seafood was all fresh, and in conclusion this restaurant is a nice place to go if you're into upscale seafood. GooglePlace - August 2017
