In 1916, Tomaso Castagnola introduced San Francisco and the world to his Dungeness Crab Cocktail creation at the San Francisco World’s Fair in 1915.  The following year Tomaso realized his dream and gave up the fisherman’s life to open a crab stand on Fishermen’s Wharf.  Tomaso quickly gained a reputation among local San Franciscan’s as well as travelers for fresh fish and cooked crab which he purchased from the local fishermen daily.  Tomaso also served up hearty steaks and chops to the fishermen after a long day at sea.  The crab stand became Castagnola’s as it is today and continues the tradition of selling fresh seafood, steaks & chops with the same friendly service of yesteryear.  Since then, Castagnola’s has been privileged to serve guests from all walks of life from every corner of the world.  The restaurant, located on San Francisco’s Fishermen’s Wharf, is part of San Francisco’s fine dining traditions.
