This was a bit of a surprise as the restaurant is located in a lane with a number of other restaurants. We were talked into going in and were very glad that we were. Whilst badged as an Italian restaurant it specialises in local seafood. I had the house special linguine and it was something special. My wife had the... More

Brindisi Cucina Di Mare, 98 Belden Pl., SF, CA 94104, tel. 415-593-8000, web: http://brindisicucina.com/. We went for the Dine About Town lunch for $18.95. We had the Tagliatelle with boar and the roasted chicken. The tagliatelle was good and had lots of boar. The roasted chicken was on the dry side. Dimitri liked the potatoes. Our server, Cathryn was good.... More

We had a family dinner with two kids. The Belden Place alley was recommended by our hotel concierge, and Brindisi seemed to offer something for everyone in the family. The dinner got off to a bad start when a giant cockroach attacked my wife. There was some drama as the staff chased the bug around the table and the restaurant... More

I highly recommend Happy Hour at this little hidden gem. Although the Happy Hour menu was a bit limited, drinks were half price and the pizza and meatballs we ordered were quite good. There was a European feel to the location with outdoor seating and a view of people dining at several of the other restaurants in this small lane.... More

Belden Place is a great little slice of San Francisco and feels like Europe when your dining al fresco under awnings. Brindisi is one of several restaurants clustered on this alley and overall it's just average food. We had a meal that was not very memorable. The pizza was average and not fresh and the entrees expensive. The server seemed... More

The service is slow, the food was very dissappointing and the prices were high. I was so dissapointed that we wasted our time and money eating here with all the other places to go to.

We had just returned to our hotel after a night visit to Alcatraz and asked our concierge where we could get a late bite to eat and they gave us directions to the hidden alley which contained a row of about six restaurants. We decided on the walk there that we should go for Italian and walked past all the... More

Of three dishes we took only one (chestnut pappardelle) was good while the other two were not exciting. Service was good but slow . The alley where the restaurant sits is nice although a little crowded. There are many restaurants in SF, try and find a better one...

Tucked in Belden Alley with some other inviting restaurants, Brindisi truly feels like something straight out of Europe at its most enchanting; all that's missing is flowerpots in the upstairs windows and some hanging laundry. This is a restaurant specializing in Italian-style seafood, and it's very fine. In Italy I'll often ask the server simply to "bring me dinner" --... More
