Diners can listen to the light jazz music that plays overhead as they enjoy fish, pasta and seafood in this open-air dining room. The menu advertises Dungeness Crab Cakes as one of the most popular items. Another favorite is the Pasta Vincenzo, which is a flavorful blend of whitefish, shrimp, scallops and mussels served over fettuccini in a white cream sauce. The restaurant also offers daily lunch and kids' specials. The service is outstanding and dinner reservations are recommended.
This place is great for a large group. Enjoy soup by the tureen full, house salad and lots of bread. Entree portions are generous. The quality of the food is fresh, but heavy handed at times. Friendly service, but can be slow. Still, a reasonably priced way to enjoy Fisherman's Wharf
I've never been a fan of seafood at Fisherman's Warf, since often the options boil down to overpriced tourist restaurants. That said, this place has good food at reasonanble prices without any pretension. It's my first choice if in the area, a good relative value, and food presents and tastes fine. Otherwise head up to North Beach.
Food is exquisite, and the waiter service is the best through States (in my opinion of course); I hope I'll come back there soon. I didn't need tips but; I gave them because the waiter who serves is efficient and sympathetic. I stayed at the beginning of July 2006, for dinner. I joined citytour, because I travelled alone. For the tourists it's great. Thank you to the owner of Pompeii Grotto and the waiter.
I have had seafood all over the world and the USA, and this was some of the best I have ever had. We ate at Scoma's two nights before, and there was no comparison. Pompeii's is much better and alot less snotty.
The crab cakes were amazing, and the seafood lasagna was wonderful. Yes, the decor is kind of tired, but I couldn't care less. The food is what really matters, and theirs was excellent.
Sadly, this establishment has slid into the bay. Lately, it is always cold inside. The Dungeness crab we had wasn't only frozen -- the only taste it had was of freezer burn. Perhpas this means it can only get better from here?
I found Pompei's Grotto years ago when I lived in the Bay Area and was trying to find a reasonably priced Crab Louie on the Wharf. I have since moved out of state but return often. For years I have enjoyed their Crab Louie's and endless sourdough frenchbread and at a much better price than other Fisherman's Wharf restaurants. We often share a bowl of steamed clams which are wonderful. My friend doesn't like seafood and always enjoys their spaghetti and other pasta dishes. They also have a good selection for kids. The restaurant is pleasant, cozy and charming. Their servers are friendly and efficient. Give it a try!
Quiet, good house wine, delicious food, great location...this little Itialian restaurant had it all. The atmosphere was perfect; low key, soft music, and some of the best Italian food I've ever had. My sister and I took our first trip to Frisco in 2004 and went to this place twice for dinner. I wish I was there right now!
For simple, tasty food & no pretense, this is a nice choice. It's right on the main drag at Fisherman's Wharf, but it isn't as overpriced & tacky as some tourist joints. The menu serves up all the standard seafood dishes, but with some light Italian touches. The daily special was a crab pasta with tomatoes & basil that tasted fresh-picked.
Right at Fisherman's Wharf on the way to Ghirardelli Square is a little piece of southern Italy. Pompeii's Grotto is a must eat at place while in San Francisco. We have eaten there many times. We live about an hour from the city and often stop at the grotto for one of our downtown meals. The fish is fresh and amazingly well prepared. Do not miss this treasure of the City by the Bay!
