Rad Italian place

I went there after a friend recommended the place - from a first look it looked nice and with an impressive Italian wine list! It was I have to say a pretty cool choice. One should try the octopus - must - along with a nice bottle of wine. Pasta was really good for all of us, even though it... read more

We were recommended Mint54 by the concierge at the Intercontinental. It was less than 10 minutes walk , ideal after a long flight and quick freshen up. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and warm welcome. We ate simple but tasty pasta , not too large portions, with a genuine Italian beer. I had a very acceptable glass of Primotivo. Thanks to the... More

Five of us, who at one time visited Sicily together, have reunited here for lunch several times. We are always pleased and happy when we leave. The Italian wine selections are wonderful. Today, four of us ordered the prix fixe menu ($16). I chose the arugula salad and fettucini, and took pictures so you could see it. The wait staff... More

My wife and I were in San Francisco for 4 nights this February and had three meals at 54 Mint. The first night’s dinner was on a whim as we were exploring the city around our hotel looking for a place for dinner. We checked out the menu, it looked good and they had an open table outside. It was... More

We were directed to this restaurant by our concierge when we asked for a good local Italian. When we arrived the atmosphere was pleasant and we were hoping for a enjoyable meal. However, what we experienced was very average food and very small portions. Pasta with a few clams, gnocchi in ragu, carbonara.... nothing special. Essentially pasta in sauces and... More

The food, service, coctails and wine, were all excellent, but the food was small portions. Creative menu, I have been once a year and they keep mixing it up successfully.

The location could have been better as we crossed a square stinking urine. However, the service and attention from waiters made us forget about both the wait and the arrival. A group of 14 had a fantastic Italian meal teasing many different dishes - with great wines.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at 54 Mint. Wonderful Italian food that is not the usual pasta with tomato sauce. The seafood was excellent. My husband had the ricotta gnocchi and it was fantastic. The wait staff was attentive and gave advice and samples of wine and grappa. I would highly recommend! The check was $154 for two, so it... More

Recently had dinner here on a visit to San Francisco. It was not very easy to get a reservation but the hostess did get me in when I told her that I was visiting from the East Coast and this would be my only opportunity to try the restaurant. The restaurant has just a small dining area and bar on... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
