Rather disappointed here. The Chicken Parm was very good and the sauce (gravy, if you prefer) was good. Eggplant Parm is not breaded, but is good that way. Not huge portions, good bread. The lady who waited on us seemed disinterested and almost unfriendly, The only person with a smile on their face was the older Chinese guy who served... More

Ordered pizza to go, was expecting a thin, crunchy crust. It was more hand tossed and chewy. Still good but wondering what all the hype is about

We went to this restaurant based on reviews, and weren't disappointed. The food was great, the server friendly and knowledgeable, and the wine was reasonable.

We stumbled across this place by accident when we paused to read the menu and a couple going in said it was the "best pizza in the city". They weren't wrong. It's very hole in the wall in the most authentic way possible. There are about 6 tables along the walls and one big table in the middle where you... More

We ate here on 2 separate trips to SF. Our dinner was delicious both times. Their red sauces and pasta are homemade and the menu includes nightly specials as well. Good wine list, friendly staff. The area looks a little seedy but don't let that keep you away from this dining experience. Very casual and small inside. If you have... More

We ate here our first night in San Francisco, after searching Trip Advisor for restaurants near our hotel in the financial district. It was delicious. One of the best Italian meals I have ever had. We ordered a wine that was on special, Italian, and it was a great beginning. We each had some chilled veggies offered as a salad... More

We asked family members who lived in the San Francisco area to recommend restaurants that would be representative of a good SF dining experience. One of the first words out of their mouth was ‘Tommaso’s – You Gotta go to Tommaso’s’. The outside of the building was intriguing. It suggested a place that had been in existence for a while....

Very good Southern Italian (red sauces) in an older, seedy neighborhood. The restaurant is down a few steps from the street level, which was an oddity for me. Rustic, repainted, tall walled booths provided privacy. Excellent service.

I grew up north of San Francisco and always have had fond memories of going down to "The City" for dinners. Now I'm taking my own kids to dinner in San Francisco...and when we're in town we always try to make a trip to Tommaso's. Get the Spinach Pizza...it looks weird, sounds weird, but take my word for it...it is... More
