May be eating alone, but eating well!

Bistecca and garlic (alone so no issue garlic!) Truffle parmesan Frites was my choice for tonight. I will preface this by admitting I was very hungry after not having time to sit and eat today. Still after satisfying my initial basic needs.no did slow down and enjoy the amazing and complex flavor... read more

We were staying next door at Hotel Abri and just wanted to get a quick bite to eat so we went into Puccini & Pinetti. What a surprise. We ordered about 5 tapas to share and they were wonderful. Our waiter was pleasant, professional and very friendly. I want to go back for a full dinner. Thanks

The food here was pretty good, but we found a hair in our charcuterie. That is always a big turn off to me. The wine prices were too high by the glass. The atmosphere is pretty good. The service wasn't too bad.

We needed somewhere for 9 people at short notice, and this place took bookings and was local to us, so fitted the bill. The food is nice, but not huge portions and very expensive, and nothing outstanding at all. Beware one of the waiters, who whisks away your plates and drinks before you've finished - we had to get a... More

Amazing dinner in a busy location. Waiter was good with recommendations. Both of our entrees were outstanding. Portions were large. We did not have reservation and there was only a 10 minute wait for a table.

Stopped in around happy hour. While we don't imbibe, the bar and lounge area was full of locals, so this must make them happy. We had an early dinner, and were very pleased with our meals. They will serve 1/2 orders at 1/2 price, so if you have smaller appetites or nowhere to take leftovers, this helps. We had spaghetti... More

Waited alprox 5 mins for a table on a Thursday night, so OK. Started with bruschetta, very nice and tasty. Bottle of pinot grigio at $36 was expected. Mains of linguini with clams and lasagne both great taste. Service was excellent, efficient but relaxed. Had a great time thank you.

I ate here on a business trip with a co-worker. We were staying right across the street at Parc 55 so this was very convenient. The restaurant was very busy, food was great.

This is a nice little Italian restaurant in a great location in San Francisco (next to the Parc 55 hotel). I had gone here by myself on business some years ago and liked it, so I took my adult kids. It was fairly busy on the Saturday evening we went (July 2015), so the service was fairly slow. I ordered... More

Attached to our hotel. Very popular and buzzing. Food was excellent. Can't fault it. Staff very friendly and keen to help. Service was just right - not too fast, not too slow. We had a lovely meal.
