As a french tourist passing by San Francisco that was looking for a table in the overcrowded fishermen's wharf on a saturday evening late, I would recommend this place. Everything was simple but great: good bread, good clam's soup and great local dish with crabs/prawns in a sort of tomato sauce. The crab was full and tasty and I really enjoyed it. The wine that we took was also pretty good.

Not having been to San Francisco for quite some time, it was over whelming looking for a place to eat on the wharf. Passing by, a man promised great food and a seat by the window with a view. Good food was not part of it. The view was nice, but when my sea food Louie salad arrived at the table it was quite a disappointment. A very small plate of lettuce arrived with 1 tomato wedge and a teaspoon of crab, teaspoon of bay shrimp and 2 small shrimp that had not been de-veined and legs still attached. Not very appetizing! Service and the view was the only thing good about this experience. The price of the food did not match the quality. I will never eat there again.

As a first time SF visitor roaming around Fishermans Wharf I could choose between the outside stands serving fresh lobster and crab or one of the restaurants lining the wharf. I choose this place and, boy, was that a mistake (as I later found out!). The service was atrocious and the crabs were horrible. A few days later I ate at one of the outside stands (the first one at the corner) and it was like night and day! I couldn't believe it was the same crab. I would never eat here again and consider it a total tourist trap. Don't waste your money here.

We went to Nonna Rose with some of our friends for dinner during a recent visit to SF -- we wanted good seafood in a non-touristy location, and I think we found it. The sourdough bread was really good, as was the clam chowder (I don't generally like clams, but I like SF clams!). For dinner, I had the shrimp in mushrooms and tomatoes. It was quite tasty -- the shrimp were sweet and succulent. The rice was great. My husband had the calamari, which was a little greasy and more fried than the description suggested, but still very tasty; the accompanying fries were fabulous! One of our friends had the cracked crab; it smelled great but was definitely a lot of work. Our other friend had the salmon, shrimp, scallop version of my dish, and she seemed to enjoy it as well. The serving dishes were cute, the service good, and the location great. I don't know if we would go back, what with all of the other options available in SF, but I am glad that we went.

This is a good restaurant for lunch on the wharf. I had the portobella sandwich, and my guest had the cedar-smoked salmon. Both were very good.
The only negatives I found were: the french fries were no good and the table setup didn't leave the diners elbow room.
