The service is among one of the most excellent in all of the restaurants I have tried in my life! Wonderful, accommodating servers. It's a beautiful, light ambiance, quite sophisticated but don't feel overwhelmed! It's actually quite down to earth since it's in the middle of many tourist attractions. The view of the ocean is beautiful and you can see Alcatraz from a distance. As for the food, I was quite surprised to find that the fish and chips exceeded the usual quality of a typical fish and chips order. The bread bowl soups are okay and the salad selection quality depends on your order! I had clam linguine pasta and it was really good. My complaint, however, is that this place has small portion sizes. I was still satisfied at the end of the meal but I'm glad I ordered appetizers and a to go pizza. Speaking of those, the vegetarian pizza was delicious and one of the best pizzas I've had. I also have to give a shoutouts to the delectable calamari appetizers! They were quite tender with the perfect crunch. Overall, this place is reasonably priced and I will definitely be coming back.

What can I say about this place? Amazing Italian food, gorgeous ocean view, kind and friendly waiter. I wish I had gotten his name, but whoever you are, you rock! Customer service levels were on point. Fancy yet casual place. You can have wine tastings (I think), there were a bunch of elderly people with different wines on their table. Interesting concept; food restaurant service with wine tastings. Came here during a very, very busy time. Wait time took about 30-50 minutes, and surprisingly, that was the shortest wait time out of all the places we looked at, that's what brought me here. Was it worth it? For the food, yes.
We were here on our last night in San Francisco and Deon, our waiter, made it the very best! Amazing views of the bay and such wonderful Italian seafood, so charming and absolutely delicious food. We started out with the cracked Dungeness crab, so sweet and juicy. Then my husband had the Chicken Marsala and I had the Linguini and Clams, probably the best I've ever had. All the while the sun is setting on the bay. We couldn't have asked for anything better!! I highly recommend this place. It's on the 2nd level on Pier 39, don't miss it!
Gorgeous view, great food, friendly service! Took my family to dinner around 6pm, it was just a perfect timing to enjoy the beautiful sunset on the upper floor in pier 39. After enjoying the sunset, found myself sitting in a decent restaurant with friendly staffs. My family enjoyed the food so much and cleared every single plate. The Asian male server did a great job and the manager Kyle provided great customer service. To Swiss Louis, we had great time and we will be back when we visit SF again.
We ate at this restaurant before going to see a play. We were seated at table by an open window and it was a beautiful day. Our waiter was friendly and helpful with menu choices. I got a pizza and it was this and crispy with appropriate amount of toppings. Two people shared the veal bolognese and they loved. The last ordered the meatball sandwich and said it was great. It took a little long to get our food so we were kinda rushed to get to the play, but we did and would go back again.
The "Trigolia Romana" was featured as Chiaroscuro's signature dish on KQED's "Check Please' show. Very tasty dish as it is 3 flavors of fresh in house made pasta and savory Italian sauces. The Misto Italiano was spectacular since it featured several charcuterie meat, mozzarella cheese and some tomatoes. Service was awesome possum, respectful and knowledgeable. I came here for lunch but definitely need to check out the dinner sometime soon! :)
Went there on a busy Saturday & were seated within 15 min. The view is of the city, the bay with all of the boats, sea lions, etc & was gorgeous. Tracy was our server & was very sweet and attentive. We had 2 cocktails which were tasty. We had the half baked crab, the pesto linguine with salmon plus garlic bread for an appetizer. The bill (with taxes) was $93, a bit pricey, but considering the location, is pretty fair. We will come back again.
We had put our name in at another ace in pier 39 that had a 30+ min wait! We the found Swiss Louis and they had a table. Lucky for us because the food was very good and price was competitive. We had mixed green salads, clam chowder and fish and chips. Clam chowder was better than other places we ate at in SF. Fish and chips were as good as I have had anywhere. View off pier 39 of the sea lions was great!!! Try it, I think you will like it!
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 have been ordering here for a few years since a S.F. native ordered it for us once. Every time we stray, I find myself wishing I hadn't cheated. Their pizza is the best thing on the menu with a thin, tasty crust, tangy, garlicy sauce and flavorful cheese. I like all types of regional pizza (Chicago, etc.) but this is hands down my favorite. It usually comes within 45 minutes even on a Friday or Saturday.
