I went to Betty Lou’s on my own on a Monday night. They gave me a lovely window seat (great for people watching). The staff were incredible and checked on me often. I ordered their classic Cioppino and it was incredible. They helped me put on a bib (which I definitely needed) and I spent an hour and a half eating, drinking wine, and reading my book. I highly recommend this place. The food and the people made it a highlight of my trip

This is my favorite restaurant. Period. End of review... Seriously though if Italian influenced seafood dishes sounds appetizing this is a must go to. I'll end relationships over a meal here. If you don't think that's the greatest cioppino in the bay area than we really don't see eye to eye. So much so I'm going to take my bowl for two to another table and enjoy this magical feast. This isn't a tourist trap though the area (North Beach) is full of them. Go here, take someone to share the magic, confirm beforehand and get a reservation. It's an amazing place run by charming staff in the heart of the Italian district. It's worth your time it's worth your money and you will comeback for more. Don't turn down the bib either you'll need it.

Amazing in every way!! Delicious food, wonderful service and welcoming atmosphere. Our server recommend the fried calamari appetizer and the cioppino entree and we loved them both. We went across the street to the Baked Bear for dessert (also recommended by our awesome server)
