We visited the Nob Hill Cafe during our stay in San Francisco and were very impressed with the standard of food and service. It is not a large restaurant so I think it has a great atmosphere.

Food was spectacular with service to match. Managed to avoid waiting in line for a long time by swinging around and putting my name on the list an hour before we wanted to dine. Would recommend Nob Hill Cafe to anyone!

Six of us dropped by for lunch on our first day in SF. All entrees were done to perfection and the sauces were to die for. Service was prompt and very friendly. We had Lasagna to Lobster bisque. A must if you are visiting.

Fun, neighborhood feel. Salads were fresh and not over- dressed. Yummy bruschetta. Pizza was very good - loved the fresh basil! Definitely worth a stop if in the neighborhood. Brunch menu looked fab too!

The food was excellent and the waitress was friendly and efficient. The tratoria atmosphere was a bit crowded but OK. We only wish they took reservations. We'll go there again.
