Nice little Italian place

Not a bad little Italian place not far from Union Square on Sutter St. Close to theaters so a good choice if you're going to a show ... but ... service can be slow, very slow so make reservations & go earlier than you think you need to (that way you'll enjoy a nice meal without being rushed/under pressure to leave in order to make the opening curtain). Had the bruschetta with mushroom &gorgonzola from the special s... view more

Neighborhood Gem

I live in SF and have become so tired of paying 80-100 bucks for mediocre meals. What a little find! This isn't fancy and it will not wow you with something new or unique. What you will get is consistently fresh pasta/sauces/veal/seafood at decent prices in a relaxed, yet intimate room. We usually ask for something different on the menu (adding chicken or mixing sauces) based on a waiters recommendation and have al... view more

Disappointed in the service

I was traveling through SF and visited this place based on other CitySearch reviews...which were mostly good.

The food was very good but the service was terrible. I don't understand what the problem was with our server...he would disappear for long periods of time between courses while we just sat and stared at the wall for a very long time. From the other reviews I assume the service is hit or miss. Sometimes you

Best Italian in SF!

Having spent an extensive amount of time eating my way through Italy, I can honestly say that this is the MOST authentic Italian restaurant in SF. The food is delicious, rustic and lovingly prepared.

Great food, wonderful ambience and ser... view more

Best Italian!

This is SF's best kept Italian food secret! Forget crowded touristy North Beach, this is my favorite restaurant in SF. Try the Insalata di Spinachi. It's amazing! Both very romantic, but also great for a night out with friends. I have done everything from bachelorette party dinners to romantic dinners. The service is phenomenal.

Mr. Date

This is my favorite place to dine in the city. I've taken many dates here and they have all loved it... too bad they never feel that way for me.

I live nearby and I consider myself a 'regular'. The place has a cozy, casually elegant atmosphere, people are always friendly. And I love those raviolis....

Mediocre food & bad service

Whole experience was such a disappointment. We wanted to try this place - it looked so romantic and the menu seemed to be good and reasonable priced, but we're very dissatisfied with mediocre food and rude service. My pasta was blend sitting in a pool of liquid, my friends got an undercooked chicken and so dry and tough pork loin. Our server was rude, totaly ingoring us and even the hostess seemed to be a bit distra... view more
