Delightful setting, friendly staff and delicious food. Accomodated our requests for substitutions, gave very good wine suggestions. Pasta was perfectly al dente, Bolognese sauce hearty, and gelato divine. Would seek this place out again on my next trip.

Fino is an authentic San Francisco Italian restaurant with cozy atmosphere and very tasty food. We shared one serving of pasta carbonara and one of chicken saltimbocca. They were both fabulous and we still had leftovers to take home. We'll return.

We ate here last night before heading round the corner to Bourbon and Branch. Food was tasty, decent portions, good value and brought out by very friendly staff. Atmosphere is very European and ambiance is relaxed and reasonably informal. Seemed to be quite a few locals which was a good sign. It was busy for a Monday night so reservations... More

I had dinner last night at Fino and enjoyed the service and the food immensely. I ordered the gnocchi and it was made very traditionally with a light cream sauce. The gnocchi was not pasty as sometimes occurs. There were a lot of specialty dishes with some from Abruzzo - an area where I have travelled.

We found Fino on Yelp a couple of years ago and have been returning ever since! The Truffle Fries are the first thing we order as we begin to peruse the menu. Last night we enjoyed the Insalata di Cesare and the Insalata di Fino for our first courses. Both were outstanding!! Our entrees were the Capesante - the scallops... More

Based on the reviews here and on other sites, plus the proximity to our hotel (5 minute walk), we gave Fino a try, and are so glad we did. Without a reservation - and the place was packed - we sat at the bar. The food and service were superb and excellent value. Would eat here again next time we're... More

We ordered one traditional dish (veal parm) and one dish off the Evenings Specials (scallops)...in the end, I would stick with the specials or signature dishes. The scallops were excellent, the veal parm medicore. The starting dishes were very good - minestrone soup and Insalata Caprese; and the desserts were amazing - Italian Custard and Cheesecake. Above all the service... More

I choose to dine at Fino based on TripAdvisor's high rating. Although the service is very good, the menu selections were quite typical and food presentation and quality were slightly above average. Prices were very reasonable, however, so Fino does warrant a very good rating, though perhaps not in the top 40 in all of San Francisco.

I really liked the ravioli is vodka sauce. Also the spaghetti is very good as well. I would have liked a more reasonably priced napa wine selection as we were looking in the $159 range and that seemed steep for a basic cab. The atmosphere was a little crowded but that seems common for most places here. I think some... More

Several cousins met here for dinner, our group being accommodated at a long table in a (fairly) quiet corner, which allowed us to talk throughout our meal. The atmosphere is classicly stylish, the service very professional and attentive, and the food was very good**. Several of us had the arugula/pear/gorgonzola salad- which was delicious - and others equally enjoyed their... More
