Walk into Alioto’s on Fisherman’s Wharf and you’ve captured the essence of San Francisco. This is where you come to dine on the freshest seafood in the world. Your backdrop? Only the Golden Gate Bridge and boats sailing by on the glistening bay. This 85-year-old Sicilian Seafood Restaurant is not only the oldest restaurant on the wharf, but it’s family owned.
