We had a great meal here. We started with the burrata and some bruschette. Both were good and the serving of burrata was generous. I had the beef cheek with polenta and my GF had the chitarra. Both were good, but I thought the Chitarra was very good. Again, the serving of chitarra was generous and the meatballs were great.
Even though we sat at the long counter, the dinner and experience were great.
I came to San Francisco on business and a friend recommended that we dine at Perbacco. It was the best recommendation I've ever had. The food was AMAZING!!!!! The service was top notch. I enjoyed it so much I had to fly my wife out to enjoy in the Perbacco experience, it was that good. We are here for the second time tonight and it was better than I remember. Umberto Thank You for an excellent experience both times at your restaurant.

We hosted a wedding celebration dinner in the Barolo room here. The room was so beautiful and private. The staff could not have been more friendly, helpful or fun. The food was exceptional. The steak was so tender and delicious and the scallops were the best any of our guests had ever had. I highly recommend Perbacco for your next group dining experience. Top notch!
Along the historic stretch of the cable car line infused California Street in Downtown SF between Front and Battery exists a throng of fine restaurant choices one can select from. My job is to make sure that people enjoy themselves, their meal and a range of wine selections to compliment a gourmet filet or fish entree. Once that piece is out of the way, the tone set, we get down to business discussing different ways to reduce expenditures from an IT infrastructure standpoint. So I look for places that are going to make me look good. I’ve been to the fine establishments such as Aqua (when it was around) and Tadich in the same block, but my adventurous side beckoned me to try something new.
And so, like the matriarch stomping up dust and leading the herd in Botswana, I led a group of five into the unknown demesne of Perbacco that I had only read about online.
“Hello,” the hostess said. “Reservation?”
I smiled, said, “I was just telling these five guys behind me how much better your monkfish is as compared to those guys next door.”
“So, no reservation,” she said with a smile. “Give me one second.”
I turned to the guys, offered a wink to indicate things were under control. The waitress returned, cradling a clipboard like an infant in one arm.
“I’ll have a table for you in fifteen. Perhaps your friends would care for a drink at the bar while you wait?”
Like Jack Colton trimming down overgrown stalks in the Amazon with a machete in, “Romancing the Stone,” I carved a path through the uber trendy Thursday night dinner crowd, wiggled my elbow passed the backs of two women in cocktail dresses to the bar top. I ordered six Prosecco’s to accommodate a toast, stole a glance from the beauty to right peering subtly over her shoulder and held out my glass to my group.
“To good health and a hearty appetite.” We clanked flutes.
In under 13 minutes, the hostess found me again and we were seated. We laughed, told stories, ordered bottle after fantastic bottle, devoured appetizers, entrees, risotto and eventually even conducted a little business.
Whether or not I will ever make a reservation here is not something I can answer. But because Perbacco succeeded in making me look good, I can tell you there is a 100% probability that I will be taking another group here in the near future . Their service is superb, the food and wine uncontended. Five stars.
We started off with the burrata cheese with white corn and heirloom tomato and it was amazing. Then again, isn't anything with burrata amazing? Then we had the raviolo with spinach, truffles, and a farm egg, which was also incredible. My boyfriend also had the veal tartare, but I'm one of those weirdo vegetarians so I passed on that. The menu has an option to share either two or three different pastas amongst the whole table, so we opted to share three. I chose the truffle-herb ricotta gnocchi and the pesto pasta with potatoes and summer squash, and he chose the agnolotti dal plin. The gnocchi was good, but I wasn't blown away like I had hoped. The pesto was not good at all - very bland. I make better pesto at home with my magic bullet and no recipes. I think my boyfriend also had the scallops. I was so full, but we had to get dessert too (we just had to), so we had the panna cotta with raspberry granita and lemon verbena. It was SO delicious.
I would definitely come back, but the restaurant was kind of loud, so maybe not on a date. Would be a great place for a business dinner or a night out with friends.
I love this restaurant. The best food and service you can get with reasonable prices. The menu always offers new dishes and the pasta is always freshly made. Whenever I am in the city, I want to go to Perbacco. The private dining rooms are very comfortable and when I dine alone, the bar is one of the most comfortable in the city.
I am surprised that more people don't know about this place. Great decor and the best Italian small plates and over 80 wines by the glass.
The servers really take great care of you. There are I-Pads at every table that give u the menu and info on the wine list. The counter service is great and the tables are large enough for 8 people. This was a great experience to learn more about Italian Wines.

I had to go to another boring work function the other night was going to skip it but I was really glad I didn't. We had dinner upstairs in a private room that was lined with windows on one side of it. Through those windows you can watch the kitchen work their magic while you have hand passed apps and wine.
The food was delicious!! I had one of their signature pasta that was unlike anything i've ever had. When dessert came I opted for the chocolate! It was dense chocolate cake with a gooey center.
I really hope that my work has a holiday dinner this season! It's one work function I will be sure not to miss!!
