Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mescolanza. You’ve done the world some good today.

Exceptional Northern Italian food in the Richmond District of San Francisco!

Mescolanza is a small, intimate, little, neighborhood, mom-and-pop restaurant that serves Italian food located on Clement Street between 23rd and 24th Avenues. It's discreetly tucked under a small pink awning. It's my favorite restaurant in my neighborhood and I've been going there for 20 years! Please note, parking on the Clement Street corridor is difficult (almost as bad as North Beach) but there is a parking lo... view more

A favorite

Parking is difficult at times, but this restaurant is worth the effort. Family run and good comfort Italian food. I never miss an opportunity to dine at Mescolanza whenever I am in the area. Service is efficient and friendly, all the pasta dishes are superb. My favorite is to share a home made ravoli special as a first course.

Good Italian food, but bad service.

I have been to this restaurant several times, and the food has consistently been very good. The service, however, leaves much to be desired. I understand that the server is unable to check on all tables all the time when it's busy, but to be snappish when asking customers if they're ready to order is not acceptable. Ignoring customers when they walk in the door is NOT acceptable, regardless of how busy it is. I've wa... view more

Good food in a cramped restaurant

Ok, so if you've ever looked for a place on craigslist, you know that ""cozy"" means, ""damn small"". same applies here. the food is good and the prices are pretty good, but it's just ridiculously small. I mean, ridiculously! you are pretty much sitting on top of other patrons and participate in their conversations. good luck if there is a loud mouth drunk in the restaurant because you'll feel like he's sitting at ... view more

always great

I was told by someone that this was their favorite Italian restaurant in San Francisco. With that high praise, how could I not visit? Although from the exterior it appears to be nothing special, upon entering, things change quickly. The ambiance is quite romantic and pretty and the service has always been perfect-ever present but not intrusive at all. The fresh pasta is prepared al dente and has always been delic... view more

solid food, great service at a good price

I eat out a lot and I am constantly trying new restaurants all over town (tried the Blue Plate last week which was good, but soooo overpriced) and I'm glad I went to Mescolanza. The food was not the best Italian I've ever had, but it was still good and very solid. Better yet, it did not break the bank. Also, our waiter was extremely friendly and attentive. They also gave us free port at the end of the meal. I will de... view more

It's OK - but not excellent

This is the Richmond District, where there are a few very good restaurants. Mescolanza is not one of them, but it is good and at decent prices. If you live in the neighborhood and want a decent Italian dinner, you may want to go. If you live outside of the neighborhood, don't waste your time. The high ratings from other reviewers appear to be skewed because of the limited choices in the Richmond District.

Very Nice

Great service and good food. Best italian in the richmond. I love their pizzas. The wine selection is not great but passable. Pasta dishes are much better than the meat dishes.

Pasta Like Cafeteria Food

This place is just overrated. Sure, their prices are cheap, as most dishes are under $13 but you get what you pay for. We had two pasta entrees since it's an Italian restaurant. My husband had the LINGUINE ALLA CARBONARA which is supposed to have pancetta, instead it was just a few sprinkles of bacon-bits on top. I had the PARPADELLE DELLA FATTORIA and the red sauce reminded me of the the spaghetti sauce from the... view more

Great Food

The food couldn't get any better!!! super great tasty food. However the service was REALLY bad. There were 2 waiters, and when we arrived they both looked at us with a nasty face, but i didnt give up because of the food. It took them like 20 minutes to finally come serve us. It was as if no one wanted to be there, they didnt smile, and seemed very agitated, as if they wanted to go home, which made us very unconfortab... view more
