This is located in a small hotel and it's off the beaten track tourist-wise, but that makes it attractive. The service was excellent. We both had the veal parmigiana; very tender and the "light" tomato sauce was a welcome change from other versions drenched in "red gravy." We made reservations and on a Monday night we needed them; we saw... More

While Fino Ristorante is in downtown San Francisco, it is located in the Andrews Hotel so if you aren't careful, you could miss it. We've dined at Fino a number of times during a visits to San Francisco over the past three years and we have never been disappointed. This is a small, quaint restaurant where you can enjoy a... More

In SF for business and I needed a good place near our hotel for a group dinner. I read about the place on TA. I read a few negative reviews so I went in with eyes wide open. I found it to be a charming, cozy eatery with good food. It seemed like lots of locals were eating there as... More

Having used Trip Advisor to locate a suitable restaurant close to our hotel and having read the rave reviews we were really looking forward to this meal. Unfortunately, despite all the 'hype', Fino is, in our opinion, just another average Italian that thinks rather too highly of itself. Despite having booked beforehand we were kept waiting for about twenty minutes... More

Based on TA reviews, my wife and I sought out this charming restaurant housed in a boutique hotel just 3 blocks from Union Square. Reservations are a must, as the place is small and always packed. We had to grab a 5:30 opening meal time to get in on a Thursday. In addition to a small, but well appointed standard... More

We dined at Fino a the suggestion of the Hotel Adagio. What a fantastic recommendation! The food was just stellar. Each course was better than the one before and everyone in our party enjoyed their food. This is the kind of place you wish was in your hometown because it would be your favorite go-to restaurant. The evening after we... More

We read the reviews and were anxious to try this place near our hotel. We were able to get in without a reservation early on a Thursday night (although it filled up fairly quickly after we sat). The place has a quaint, elegant yet casual atmosphere. There were plenty of options on the menu and wine list was generous. Overall,... More

It's a very small, local restaurant but a great decor and atmosphere with a good, diverse menu for a wonderful night out. Great service from the staff. Make a reservation in advance as there is extremely limited space.

Had dinner here last Wednesday night while on holidays in San Francisco and it was so good we returned again on Thursday night. I've eaten in many Italian restaurants over the years in various countries and indeed Italy itself but this is hands down the best I've ever experienced. The seafood dishes are especially good. Very reasonably priced with a... More

On one of many visits to SF, for a meeting at the Moscone Ctr., we were staying in the Union Square area. It was our last night and we had to make an early flight in the am, so we wanted a local restaurant with little travelling to and fro. Remembered a restaurant in a small nearby hotel, so we... More
