Cafe Pescatore - San Francisco

My last supper in San Francisco was eaten at Cafe Pescatore. They are located about 4 blocks from Pier 39, just north of North Beach. I was craving Italian and hadn't eaten any since I had been in San Francisco. One of the free guidebooks at the hotel had a coupon for a free antipasto plate to this place, and it looked pretty decent so I decided to check it out. I took the F line up to Fisherman's Wharf and walked.

They have nice outdoor seating and I was early (a theme with me these days) so I opted to dine al fresco. The menu was diverse and very affordable. I had a very friendly and helpful waiter (Grant I think was his name). It was the best service I had while dining in the city. I ordered the comped antipasto plate and was expecting something thrown together and small. What I was served was a lovely combination of fresh marinated veggies, cheese and salty Italian meats...Delicious!
For my entree I ordered the Fettucine Con Gamberetti. This was Spinach Fettuccine, Tiger Prawns, Roasted Garlic, Sundried Tomatoes, Basil in a Parmesan Cream Sauce. The prawns were perfectly seasoned and grilled. The cream sauce was the perfect thickness so that it clung to each meaty piece of fettucine. I devoured this dish so fast that I didn't get a photo of it. Sorry. Next time I go to San Francisco, I'll be sure to visit Cafe Pescatore. It was the best meal I had while I was there – excellent food, great service, good value and lovely atmosphere.

That looks so good!! I always ask DH to take me to SF. If that happens, we'll look for that place. Hugs, Vanessa
