Small but friendly

First time back home in 30 odd years and went out for Italian with my fellow work family members. This place was nuzzled in a corner with an outside eating alley. Yet, very expensive for a plate of Lobster Ravioli $22 and received a plate of 5, it was very tasty. Followed up by a $12 glass of... read more

Came here on the recommendation of a friend and we're glad we did. The alley of its location is lined on one side with boutique restaurants of varying fare. This one is on the far end from Bush Street. The hostess was most personable, the busboys most attentive and our waiter was most efficient. The food of course was flavorful... More

I took a group to lunch during the holiday season. They were preparing for a large group but still paid close attention to us. All four of us ordered pasta dishes. All were delicious. Mine was full of clams, shrimp and calamari. The sauce was perfectly seasoned, just enough spice to make me happy. I've eaten here many times, it's... More

It had been a while since we had come to San Francisco other than to run the San Francisco Marathon, and everytime we came to Brindisi we always a light pasta dish to fuel us for the following day's 26.2 miles.

Very nice small Italian seafood restaurant with very efficient friendly staff. Salad starters were great and pasta and seafood dishes perfect. Especially enjoyed the Cioppino. This was the place we were looking for, not to expensive and not stuffy. Great food and people!

This was such a special find. We were checking out all the restaurants in the small alley called Belden Pl. they share with and were talked into trying Brindist. It was wonderful. We shared a 1/2 bowl of pasta (they serve 1/2 bowls of certain pastas which is plenty) made with spinach and prosciutto and crema. Fabo We also split... More

My hotel wifi was poor so I wandered around nearby for a place just to grab a coffee whilst I used their wifi to research, write and email off a proposal. That plan turned into a productive session and one of a tastiest meals I've had in a while. Having been greeted by a delightful hostess and savoured a fine... More

I live outside the City, and BART'd in to meet an old friend of mine from out of town who was here on business. She was staying just outside of Union Square, and the two of us had dinner at Brindisi. We chose Brindisi because she wanted fish, and the reviews here and on Opentable were pretty good. We were... More

This place is located in an alley with numerous other restaurants which, judging by their menus, I would have been happy at any of them. The outside seating is fun and energetic, a bit cramped but not uncomfortable. The specialty at this place is a huge bowl of ciopinno with bread baked on over the top, what you can see... More

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.
