Intimate, relaxed, Top Notch Northern Italina Food

Waiter/Sommelier/Host was wonderful, really knows his wines and foods.\r \r Everyone was thrilled with the food, from our business dinner. Even the foodie in the group spoke highly of the sole and polenta. Strips of Lamb tender and the chicken were wonderful.\r \r Good mix of Italian and No. Californian wines. Teroldego was excellent and a pleasant surprise. The Cain Concept was almost as good as the Cain 5.\... view more

Delicious food met with cozy atmosphere

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and I couldn't have been more impressed. Perched atop Nob Hill, it had a breathtaking view of the city. As soon as we walked in the host made us feel welcome and comfortable. The atmosphere inside was gorgeous and I felt as if I stepped into a Tuscan villa. The bread promptly brought to our table was extremely fresh, still warm as if straight out of the oven, and was the soft... view more

Nice Cozy Place with Good Food

We were promptly seated, friendly service and good food. We started with the gnocchi entre and split if four ways for starter. Mushroom sauce was rich and intense. Caesar Salads with white anchovie was also very nice with large bands of cheese. The lobster bisque pasta special was excellent as was the lamb special and the pork tenderloin. Reasonable Itallian wines; limited CA reds however. I would goback. Nice for ... view more

What happened?

For years, I have been going here once a year for special occasions --- birthday dinner, friends coming in from out of town, a accomplishment at work. Went last night, a Thursday night, and should have figured out something was wrong when it was almost completely empty at 8pm. While the pasta carbonara that a friend and I shared was OUTSTANDING, the rest of the meal was disappointing and blah. Heirloom tomato salad... view more

Great pasta

This is a wonderful place to go with a group of friends or that someone special. The atmosphere is comfortable, the food is outstanding, and the service is great. The pastas are all out of this world! But leave room for dessert. The lemon sorbet is a great way to end the evening.

Romantic and cozy Italian

One of my favorite restaurants in SF. Very romantic, nice wine list and the food is always delicious. More of a date place but is also a good choice for a nice meal with a small group. The tira misu is heavenly! Note: some tables are more private/quiet than others.

A Gem in SF!

Venticello is truly charming! It is intimately tucked away in the Nob Hill neighborhood. The dining room is rustic and authentic with warm and cozy lighting and candles on the tables. The service has always been wonderful and warm. Venticello is the perfect place for a date or for an intimate gathering of friends that want unpretentious, yet sophisticated italian food and very reasonable prices. My boyfriend and i l... view more

The room is very nice as are the hostess, but the good news stops there. The waiter was hostile, rude, and kept us waiting 20 minutes. The food was not good. Heavy sauce not specified on the menu was used on seared tuna and sole probably to desguise the taste of the fish.

Good wines, average food

The wine selection was excellent, but unfortunately the dishes were mediocore at best. Nice atmosphere and the hostess(es) were a charm. The same could not be said about the waiter. Unfriendly lout.
