“Fresh tuna steak is marvellous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

We were in Sotto Mare twice. Once for dinner trying Cioppino and next day for lunch for the best fresh tuna steak ever.
Always ask for their catch of the day.
If you're ok with simple ambience like you're sitting in a wharf's tavern rather than restaurant and good sea food is what you're looking for - you'll definetely love this place.

“Much ado about nothing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

Good fish, cold bread, poor service, no ambience. Dining area is in the basement. Chairs are the red stackable, uncomfortable type. Can't recommend this place with all the other good food options in San Fran.

“Great food, lively atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

Had a wonderful time at this restaurant. The receptionist/owner is a caracter!!
Arrived there at 19:00 on a Sat with no reservation and it ws completely packed. Waited for half hour and was seated by the kitchen. We could see our dishes being prepared. The restaurant is very lively - typical Italian. Food - devine.
