If you're in the Bay Area, indulging on cioppino is an absolute must so gather your friends and prepare for a feast.

This scrumptious seafood stew originated in the Bay Area during the late 1800s. Cioppino was invented by Italian immigrants who fished off of Meiggs Wharf and lived in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood. Using the leftover seafood from the day’s catch, cioppino was created and is essentially the S.F. version of Marseilles bouillabaisse (traditional Provençal fish stew from France) or the Tyrrhenian Sea "cacciucco.”

This Italian-American dish is similar to various regional Italian fish soups and stews. For the true Bay Area experience, opt for a cioppino served with flaky, warm sourdough bread. Wondering where to try the best cioppino? Reserve a table for two at Cioppino’s.
