85 Fifth Street
San Francisco, CA
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
and today, it's as popular as ever.
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.
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).
Enjoy a variety of classic Italian Pasta dishes,
Daily Specials, Seafood, New York Steak, Pork Chops, Lamb Chops...and
Rich and flavorful Chicken
Livers, sauteed with onions and mushrooms (photo above)
tastes just like our Moms' homemade.
Other menu favorites include the Veal Parmigiana and
Marsala wine and mushrooms (photos below).
Seafood and Entrees are served with your choice of Vegetables,
Spaghetti, Rigatoni or Beans.
Complement your meal with a bottle of wine. Little
Joe's restaurant also has a full-service bar where you can enjoy
a pre-dinner cocktail or glass of wine.
meal comes with a generous portion of fresh garlic — great for dipping your bread — you
want to skip this if you've got an important one-on-one
later in the day :)
Lunch and dinner daily.
Sun 12 noon-10pm
Reservations are recommended for larger groups.
5th & Mission Garage is located directly opposite Little Joe's
Little Joe's owner, Frank (on right) and his
partner Joe, run the family-oriented casual-style Italian eatery.
What more could you ask for — good food, hearty portions
and service with a smile :)
