The concierge at the hotel tried to encourage me to go to the little Italy part of town. But, Puccini and Pinetti was close to the hotel and it was getting late. My mistake. The atmosphere was very nice. And, the service very good. But, the rest was average. The minestrone was like out of a can, and the spaghetti... More

Me & my mum ate here whilst visiting San Fran. We had the seafood pasta and it was delicious! Lots of seafood and very fresh. For dessert we shared the hot choc pudding which was to die for, don't think you could eat one to yourself. Staff were very friendly and service was quick. Only downsides we would say was... More

Stopped here on the way to the a show at the Curran. We were offered complementary bruschetta because of the show tickets. Now mind you it wasn't your typical bruschetta. The tomatoes were warm. Yes it had the balsamic vinegar, fresh basil and it had toast, but they added goat cheese. It was a totally different flavor to the bruschetta,... More

We went for dinner at this great spot. Good was to die for. I had a pumpkin gnocchi with pancetta, shiitake mushrooms and butternut squash. It was the chef special and it was delicious. My husband had the Seafood Pasta and there was more seafood then pasta!it was filled with mussels, clams, shrimp and calamari. Service was fantastic too!

Bored with the mass-produced hotel food at the Hilton around the corner, we decided to try this place for a change. Recommended by a friend, we weren't disappointed. Friendly and efficient service, great food and good selection of wines. Very generous portions (my starter was big enough for 3!) and all high quality, fresh ingredients. Reasonable value for a city... More

We were in town for a weeks. We were looking for Italian food close by specifically with spaghetti and meatballs on the menu. The place is very nice. The food was very good and the service excellent. The spaghetti and meatballs and a meat sauce, it was very good. We also had the version of Ciappino, it was also very... More

If staying at the hotel Abri and looking for good Italian food, Puccini & Pinetti should be your choice. Just 0.4 miles away from the Moscone convention center, this restaurant is the perfect option for those who want to stay away from the typical downtown fast-food joints and enjoy a nice meal.

This isn't your chain italian restaurant nor is your american italian place with every conceivable dish on the menu. It is clean, simple menu with quality complex dishes that display the chef's skill. The meal starts with complimentary bread and tomato based dipping sauce. We had an appetizer of fresh olives. My spouse had the salmon special and I had... More
