We always come here whenever traveling to SF. The food is great but the service can always improve. love their chicken and lamb shanks. It is a little expensive unlike other SF fast food joints.

There are lots of good eateries in this area near Union Square, but it's hard to find better Italian food at such a fair price. We loved everything we ordered and they have lots of gluten free options. Don't miss the brunette appetizer-best ever! Warm spinach salad, chicken marsala, and canneloni were also great. Place is a bit noisy, but... More

Always thrilled to find knowledgable staff when offering gluten free options. (Coeliac daughter) We happily ordered gluten free meatballs and pasta which were delicious and the gf chocolate truffle pudding was to die for. Nice lively atmosphere and super helpful friendly staff.

Went to Puccini and Pinetti in August 2014 with my family including 2 older teenagers. The minestrone soup was just okay. The broth was more like consume than what a minestrone should be. And it had no chick peas (which all good minestrones should have). The Cesar salad was good and enjoyed. The chicken Marsala was very good- they didn't... More

I always try to visit this great little Italian restaurant whenever I stay in SF. I have always found the food and service to be great and have met some really great people. The place always seems to be busy and many are locals and regulars so that alone tells you something.

We also ate here on our first night in San Francisco in recommendation of our hotel (Villa Florence Hotel: see my review of the hotel). We arrived and were greeted by a smiling host who told us they can seat us in 15 minutes. We waited for 20 minutes and when I approached to inquire whether our table was ready,... More

Spent a week in San Francisco and really struck out on just about all of our food choices. We ordered spaghetti and meatballs, cannelloni and linguine with clams. Everything was fair, but my teen who picks over most food devoured the linguine dish. Cute little place.

We visited this restaurant twice during our week in SF. Once at the tail end of happy hour and again for take-out. Happy hour is fantastic - what great deals! We had 2 rounds of drinks and shared 3 appetizers for less than $50. That just can't be beat. The food is really, really good. The Italian Nachos I might... More
