Caffe Sport? [SF]

Does this North Beach spot with amazing Sicilian ambience still exist?

Years back I would take out-of-towners there and watch their amazement at the attitude, the decor, and the garlic.

Any current news? Comments?

    It's still there. I haven't been in a few years, but with crab season here this would be a good time to try it again.

      Funny you should mention the Cafe Sport. I was just wondering the same thing. Their reputation in the old days was that the portions were huge--enough for two people--but that they required that everyone in the party order an entree. This always kept me from trying it for dinner, though in the seventies I would go there late for drinks.

        I haven't been in years but I have friends who eat there regularly and say it's still good.
