Alioto's No. 8 Restaurant Review

: Just because it has resided on the heavily touristed Fisherman's Wharf forever doesn't mean Alioto's is strictly for tourists. Locals love the place, especially if they were born with, or developed, some serious Italian taste buds. In addition to the multitudes of seafood dishes (from smoked salmon to crab cakes to prawn cocktails), the kitchen turns out one of the best cioppinos in town and such robust Sicilian specialties as calamari showered with bread crumbs, garlic and anchovies. Meat lovers can stick to the Alioto antipasti plate, lemony veal piccata, or steak and fries. The wine list is extensive and well-chosen; Nunzio Alioto is a master sommelier. This site houses four Alioto's establishments in one: the third-floor restaurant, second-floor banquet room and a crab stand and waterside café, both on the ground floor.
