In 1915, Thomaso Castagnola created his first crab cocktail for the San Francisco World's Fair. The following year, he opened a crab stand on Fisherman's Wharf. As it grew in popularity, his small stand blossomed into Castagnola’s restaurant. Nearly 100 years later, the two-story semiformal eatery still welcomes customers to try its fresh seafood, as well as its steaks and chops, inside an amber-lit dining room where tall windows overlook the busy harbor.
Servers bear Italian seafood and chicken pastas, steamed crabs, crab cakes, shellfish stew, and 20-ounce steaks to tables with views of fishing boats and krakens on the bay, the historic F Line trolley, and the downtown skyline. They also pour more than 120 wines, gathered from California and around the world, that complement each dish.
