My husband and I went there without reservations and happily sat at the bar to enjoy our dinner. Our bartender was lovely, and took great care of us. The food was fabulous! we started with carpaccio and then shared a daily special of scallops shrimp and pasta. We were very happy.

I was on a business trip to San Francisco staying by Union Square. I used to live in SF and used to go to North Beach all the time for dinner but I was tired from flying in so decided to stay near the hotel. The JW recommended this restaurant and so glad the did. It is a very small... More

Don't miss your chance to try this place! It was amazing!!! Be sure to make a reservation though. The Carbonara Tortellini is to die for! Everything we had was superb!

We made a reservation long before our trip to San Francisco and were we ever glad we did! When we arrived there was a line up. People were being turned away because they didn't have reservations. The food and service was fabulous! The pasta is made fresh everyday. We were not disappointed and we will definitely go back there the... More

Decided to try the restaurant for convenience because we were staying at the Andrews Hotel and was glad we did. A superb menu - only criticism was the large starter was a bit over-facing. Good range of veal dishes and accompanying veg a change from the usual fare. Has the feel of a long established family restaurant.

We came for a meal based on the glowing reviews we'd read about this supposedly authentic Italian restaurant. We are lucky enough to have spent a fair amount of time in Italy and there is nothing "authentic" about the menu. It may well be authentic American-Italian, but I can't really comment on that. Despite having said all of this, the... More

My husband and I ate at Fina in October 2014. We arrived early in the evening, with reservations. We ordered the potato appetizer and the clam and mussel appetizer. The potato pyramid arrived cold after half an hour of waiting. I asked the waiter if it should be hot and he promptly said "yes" and took it back to the... More

We tried to get to Fino 3 times and at last we succeed. First time we came at about 10 pm and it was already closed. Then we tried it for lunch and it wasn’t open yet caz they don’t serve lunch. At last we made a reservation and were seated. The service and the food were good but we... More

We went for our anniversary. Waiters were fantastic and food was exceptional. Home made pasta's, wife had swordfish that was out of this world. Don't let the word BAR in their name fool you, it is classy and refined. In the bottom of an old hotel in downtown. Don't look like much from outside but wait until you sit down... More

We've dined at numerous Italian restaurants in San Francisco and enjoyed most of them, however Fino tops the list. The decor is inviting, staff friendly, wine list extensive and food exquisite. My wife's halibut was very fresh and accompanied by perfectly cooked vegetables. My charred prawns over ravioli with sautéed vegetables was as nice a dish as I've enjoyed all... More
