Description & Atmosphere
We've enjoyed eating at Little Joe's ever since we both arrived in San Francisco — back in the mid-70's. Over the years, it's changed locations several times, but the menu has stayed the same and today, it's as popular as ever.

Little Joe's Italian Restaurant is located on the corner of 5th and Mission Street in San Francisco, California

Ideally located on the corner of 5th and Mission Street (inside the historical Pickwick Hotel), Little Joe's is a short walk from Union Square and close to the Metreon
(& IMAX Theater), the new Westfield San Francisco shopping mall, and Moscone Convention Center — and directly opposite the 5th & Mission Parking Garage.



Food
Dig into a hearty Cioppino (or as Little Joe's calls it, Caciuco stew), filled with clams, cod, crab, mussels, and prawns in a delicious tomato sauce (photo below).

Each meal comes with a generous portion of fresh garlic — great for dipping your bread — you may
want to skip this if you've got an important one-on-one meeting
later in the day :)
