Very Good

The waitress was very well versed on wine and suggested a delish pino. I had the saladto start which had a wonderfully light vinagrette, the the salmon entree. Very good. Also tried a friends steak which had an amazing flavor. Another friend had the capaccio he said it was very good.

Puccini & Pinetti is across Ellis St from our accommodation, so we gave it a shot. A good decision. We were allocated a high table and seated quickly. We could not fault the waitstaff although we only wanted a light meal and glass of wine after lunch at Sausalito. The wine list was good and my wife enjoyed her Minestrone... More

We walked in early on a Friday night, no reservations. They seated us immediately. Our server, Amanda, helped make this a great experience. She offered accurate food recommendations, and helped accommodate food allergies. Our meals were delicious. I'm adding this restaurant to our list for when we've got visitors or business associates who are staying downtown. It's a good alternative... More

Had dinner here one evening, somewhat loud so we asked to be sited in a back corner. I had a great spagetti and meatball diner but somewhat expensive @ $ 24. Across the street from Parc 55 Hilton

Recommended by the concierge of our hotel after requesting a restaurant besides Cheesecake Factory, suitable to bring our little ones. The bread with olive tapenade was delicious. Calamari, pretty good. Pizza was "ok". At the end of the day, my husband and I agreed that Cheesecake Factory is preferable.

I had the pleasure of having dinner at Puccini and Pinetti with two business colleagues. We found the restaurant by walking by and had a very good experience. Our group enjoyed meals including salads, rissotto and chicken marsala. The food was very good and priced well for a large city. Our server was very good and attentive without being intrusive....

An agent recommended this place to us for a luxury meal, the ambience was cool, the food OK, far too large a plate and so much waste, food was OK nothing to which it was built up to be. Too many different waiters attending to you, some forgetting what you had asked the other.
