Lovely setting in old style hotel

This was my first experience with this restaurant conveniently located 2 blocks from Union Square. Specials for the night we were there were perfectly prepared Halibut on a bed of risotto, that I had, and Dungeness crab ravioli which my friend had, was very tasty.

I was a regular a couple of years ago. Staying for only 3 nights in SF I was really hoping to get a meal there, so I turned up at 5.25 pm, 5 minutes before opening time. 3 Tables where empty, still I got turned away. Well I think times have changed very much in SF. A couple of years... More

We took a chance coming here because we didn't have reservations. It was a Wednesday night, the place was crowded, but luckily they had room to squeeze us in. Being in a commercial / touristy section of town, we were concerned about having a high priced, just "eh" meal, but Fino's surpassed expectations. We didn't order appetizers but happily munched...

Because we didn't have reservations we ate our dinner at the bar. Apparently there were several events going on in SF which booked up the reservations. Our bartender, Jacob, was great. He's friendly and extremely efficient. He was busier than a one arm paper hanger, but he performed with style and a smile. We started with two of the best... More

Located in a very small hotel lobby but the food is excellent. The bar opens at five one half hour before you can order food.

Large portions. Lovely interior. Little difficult to find, but worth it. One of the better value dinners we had while in San Francisco when comparing quality and portion size to price.

The guy behind the bar was extremely friendly throughout the meal. The menu had a great selection of pasta's and entrees. I went for the carpaccio for stater which is arguably the best I carpaccio I have tried. My linguine main came out steaming hot and full of flavour. 4 drinks and 2 starters came to $50 which I thought... More

We picked the Fino Bar & Ristorante based almost entirely on recommendations from Trip Advisor. It was excellent. Our server, Andres was professional and charming. Known for its truly home-made pasta, this is Italian food with substance and style. The two couples each shared an Insalata di Cesare — large servings of hearts of romaine, croutons, with shaved Parmesan cheese... More

It is a sad tragedy that so many advertise that they are able to make pasta and yet are so proficient at disappointing anyone who has in fact familiarised themselves with the concept that is pasta. Not so at Fino. The pasta is hand made, it is superb, and it will melt away any of the fears that one always... More
