We visited 54 Mint as we love italian food and were not disappointed. We sat in the wine cellar, which reminded us of restaurants in Italy we had visited in the past. All the pasta is homemade and was great! Good wine selection and the value was great. We were travelling with our daughter and they were very kid friendly!... More

We stumbled on this place across the street from our hotel the day we arrived (and needed keeping awake from jet lag). It is wonderful! Genuinely Italian (a view obviously shared by the countless Italian language conversations going on around us and the effusive greetings of guests by the staff). A great Italian wine list (and they really know their... More

This was such a surprise to find this place. It's a italian (Rome) themed restaurant. Service is always good. Ambiance is simple and refined. Food is fantastic! Great wine list too!

The location although in the heart of the city is very quaint and quiet. The service was excellent and the food was remarkable. Do try the grilled octopus!

The pasta is nearly perfect and very creative. The sauces are highly varied and perfectly paired with the dishes. They have a small but excellent selection of wines. the staff is knowledgeable and helpful without being too intrusive. The dining rooms are cozy and comfortable and on nice night the patio is a great place to dine.

very nice italian spot in a great spot in downtown SF! We were booked for 4 people and only showed as three, so the manager asked us to move (very graciously). We moved a better table and he bought us desert and coffee (very nice touch). Food was very fresh - particularly the pasta choices. Nice wine and excellent service.... More

We walked in with a party of 6 and they worked their magic to accommodate our group. Wine was good! It was very difficult to understand our server as he was a bit soft spoken, odd for that type of job. Anyway, food was very good but for an Italian restaurant I felt the menu was limited. Just my opinion.... More
