THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED A. Sabella's Restaurant Restaurant Review

: When the Sabella family emigrated from Sicily in the late 1800s, they made their living by fishing the bay. They opened this seafood restaurant in 1920, and today the fourth generation of Sabellas runs the place. The dining areas feature floor-to-ceiling arched widows overlooking the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. On foggy nights (which are more often than you'd think) a warm fire crackles and adds a romantic glow to an already romantic room. The good-sized menu features seafood pasta with tomatoes, fennel and cream as well as a fritto misto loaded with seafood and vibrant with herbs, citrus zest and peppers. San Francisco classics like chilled crab Louise salad, cracked crab dinners and seafood grills along with clam chowder seem to defy the usual curse of bad food in restaurants with good views. Locals love the nicely priced, well-chosen wine list that includes a stocked by-the-glass menu.
