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

Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you like good Italian food and have theater tickets to the Golden Gate Theater. Our waitress was from northern Italy and the food was some of the best Italian food I've had in the Bay area. I enjoyed the special crab agnolotti dish and my companions enjoyed the bucatini amatriciana and the grilled lamb... More

Okay, I will admit I have eaten in this restaurant at least once or twice a month since it opened 4 years ago. The food is amazing! The menu is seasonal and always represents what are the best available ingredients. Even though I adore the Roman style artichokes I can only get them in season. This is a Roman restaurant... More

Great place for a visit with friends or business partners. Great service, food is tasty and in pretentious. Ordered the Pepe pasta a classic roman dish and it hit the spot. The prosciutto was fresh and the tomato mozzarella croquettes just right in terms of crispness. All in all great dinner.

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.
