We were in a hurry. Looked over the

We were in a hurry. Looked over the menu outside, looked good. First thing we found was that the outside menu and the inside menu were different. You guessed it. Once you sat down, the prices went up. We got a couple of glasses of their most reasonably priced wine, a couple of plates of pasta and asked for some bread. BTW, we had to ask for bread. Here's the punch lineâ?¦2 plates of pasta (no meat or fish), 2 glasses... view more

No advertisement for San Francisco

As a Brit I thoughly agree with vg99. This place was recommended to me by a friend who went there many years ago. The service was clinical and it was clear that they wanted to serve me quickly to get the table back into service as soon as possible. As for the food, it was lack lustre and very much overpriced. I had the mussels in a dishwater sauce which worked out more than a dollar a mussel ! as for the lamb which I... view more

The staff and management at this restaurant was the worst that I have ever experienced during a dining experience. When I asked questions about the menu I was given a smug response as if I was bothering the server. Then when there was a question about the bill the server went off on my husband and I in and took off with our money and hid out back. We go out to eat A LOT from really nice fine dinning place to sports b... view more

Great! I moved to San Francisco over 20 years ago, and this is the first restaurant that I ate at that's "Italian" better than in Italy itself... The food is delicious, a really trip in deep Sicily…Very friendly service, clean and very stylish furnished. The holder, Paolo, always leads me to the best specialty of the day, and he's always ready to advice his guests all around San Francisco (that's why we cal... view more

Authentic Northern and Tuscan Italian Fare

When you go to an old established S,F. landmark restaurant, order the local fare. I would order sand dabs or petrale sole instead of Salmon flown in from Alasks. Come on! the local fisherman haven't been allowed to fish salmon in two years,All the veal dishes are excellent , the pasta is superb. The mixed house salad and the Ceasar's salad is great. Who would complain about stale bread. I no of no S.F. restaurant who... view more

Great Italian Fare

This is a very good Italian restaurant & what fun it is. It's not for the casual uptight diner or for the ""in-a-hurry"" eater. Here you dine on good food with a group of good friends & enjoy both all evening! We surely did & plan on doing it again the next time we're in the city. The fare was an Italian food lovers best choices dream down to the sweetbreads & chicken livers entrees. Where else do you see these anymo... view more

Food OK, terrible service!

We're locals who had fond memories of this restaurant from the late 80's, but it has gone totally downhill. We were seated 30 minutes late after booking in advance on Open Table on line. The waiter continually attempted to push us in the direction of more expensive entries and wine. The prices are outrageous. For a party of 5 with one bottle of moderately priced wine, an appetizer and main entry the bill was $390. We... view more

tasty food - great place for lunch

We enjoyed ourselves at this restaurant. The Sunday lunch crowd last week was casual; the wait staff was busy, but attentive overall. We were a party of 5 which included an active toddler, but were never made to feel inferior. We were seated at a corner table with one side as a booth and the host made the comment ""Kids love sitting in the booth"" and he was right. One member of our party hails from north of Venice, ... view more

Very disappointed

I ordered the salmon steak and it was dry and not very extraordinary in taste and the green vegetables that they included with the meal was incredibly disgusting. My husband's steak was also very salty. We should have tried their actual Italian dishes but please avoid the salmon and the steak. Also, their tiramisu had a very strong taste and gave me some heartburn. After 2 bites, I just couldn't eat it anymore. Also,... view more
