This family-run restaurant is located in the Fisherman's Wharf just a few steps from the sea. According to press, it's one of the best seafood restaurants in SF. We settled on Cioppino's name because is what we do best. Cioppino is a delicious seafood soup which is uniquely San Franciscan. The origin of both the dish and the name came from the Italian fishermen in the early 1900's.
