Fisherman Wharf's oldest restaurant began as a crab stand in 1920, serving seafood cocktails out of a paper cup. Today, Alioto's is a successful, fine seafood restaurant specializing in traditional Sicilian recipes. Sitting right on the water, it offers one of the best views of the Bay. The upstairs dining room offers an old-world charm and an award-winning wine list. The downstairs serves favorites that include the home-made seafood sausage, an exclusive crab cioppino and a rich seafood risotto. The oysteria serves seafood cocktails, pizza, salads, soups and sandwiches. The service is attentive and helpful.

  I'm a local and love coming here for quality fresh seafood. The fried calamari appetizer is to die for - very light batter that doesn't hide the taste of the calamari.
