just had a great meal at Brindisi- the risotto de mare was out of this world. Alfredo was out waiter and was very attentive. Give this restaurant a try you will not be disappointed.

We have always enjoyed this local Italian restaurant but on our most recent visit it has lost some appeal. The food selections do not seem to be as varied and the neighborhood does not seem as charming. Something is different and I would not recommend this as highly as I have in recent years. Risoto was not as good as... More

We had dinner here with our adult children after Christmas shopping. It was one of the few restaurants we could get into with a last minute reservation. That should have been my clue. The menu selection is great, and the food is not bad. That being said, the food isn't real good either. The wine? Ummm. They need some help... More

I really enjoyed my evening at Brindisi. First off when I checked out the restaurant the day before the bartender was very accommodating and really engaging. As such, I decided I would dine there the next day. As a guy from Boston the opportunity to eat outside in mid November couldn't be passed up. Temp was about 60 and there... More

I enjoy the experience of Belden place and have eaten as several restaurants. Its a quaint little alley way/street with many choices. The service at Brindisi was fine, very pleasant, warm people. The food was just average. I had the pasta with prawns, which I was told is one of the most popular dishes. Is this something waiters are trained... More

While my colleagues enjoyed their meal, I must say I wasn't impressed - I think people tend to like this place because of its trendy location (Belden Lane). I had the beef tagliata - it was pretty good, but very small portion. Good thing my colleague couldn't finish her ravioli! The tiramisu was quite bad - I have tiramisu whenever... More

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.

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
