Grubstreet reports that the popular Russian Hill Italian seafood restaurant Pesce (Italian for “fish”) will be coming to the Castro in the former Jake’s on Market location (2223 Market Street). The restaurant is moving because they’d like to find a larger space; many reviews on Yelp mention how tiny the current space is.

Pesce was listed in the San Francisco Chronicle’s Top 100 Restaurants of 2012 and is 4-star rated on Yelp with pretty good reviews. They’ll be joining three other seafood focused restaurants in the Castro including Catch, Anchor Oyster, and Woodhouse Fish Company. Anchor Oyster and Woodhouse are both pretty small and usually pretty busy, so a seafood restaurant that’s already earned its stripes and has a larger dining area will be a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

So far, they’re looking at an August opening date for the Castro location. We pulled down some photos of their dishes from Yelp that look pretty tasty. Check out the food porn in the gallery below.

    I am so excited about this news. Should be a hit, they are experienced restauranteurs with an already positive reputation.

    Don’t forget about Anchor Oyster Bar. Also fairly tiny, but always good food.
