I had lunch in this restaurant after strolling through Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 and developed an urge to avoid the usual touristy ones. This is a short walk away. The decor is old school but fitting. My colleague and I ordered the Gamberoni allo Spiedo in Pancetta and Prosciutto con Frutta di Stagione for starters. The shrimps were very tastily cooked. The meat was firm and the pancetta provided the seasoning. The rock melon that accompanied the prosciutto was sweet and juicy, and was the star over the pork. We had Linguine Tutto Mare and Bucatini Amatriciana for main courses. The pasta was made in-house, but I wished that it had more bite. We finished with vanilla ice-cream and the tiramisu. We stepped in at 4 pm so the restaurant was not busy - I was surprised they seated us. The food arrived quickly. The outstanding server was very charming and engaging. Overall, the food was authentic and very good. The service was excellent. The price was about $100, which seemed reasonable for value. I have no problems recommending this restaurant to any diner.
