Food was good, service was non-existent. I had to take my check to the managers and told them of my issue. They were very apologetic and offered a free drink.

We celebrated the engagement of our son and his fiancée at Bertolucci's and were delighted with every aspect of this wonderful old world style restaurant. The amazing lasagne, eggplant Parmesan, chicken piccata, spaghetti.....FANTASTIC! Little pizza bread appetizers were delicious, too! Service was impeccable, perfectly timed with each coarse. Our waiter, Dakota, was helpful with suggestions of wine and dessert. And... More

If it were possible, I would give Bertolucci's 3 stars plus. Not quite four stars. The food here is consistent, family style, old style Italian. Nothing fancy. A little on the salty and saucy side for some. Noisy. You cannot hear your party if they are across the table. Wait staff turnover appears high. Our waitress this time around was... More

Bertolucci's is a great place to stop especially if you are going into San Francisco from the airport. It is so close to the freeway and easy to get to. The food is amazing. The service was topnotch . I had osobucco and it was great. You can't go wrong here.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at this fascinating place. They've done a smashing job of retaining its original Italian elegance and charm. The food is exceptional, and the service truly memorable. We highly recommend you try the seafood fettucini, an ample portion and every morsel a delight. Gina, our waitress, was a talented server whose recommendations were detailed and convincing.... More
