After reading the reviews here on Tripadvisor I came here, expecting to eat an Italian-style pasta. But I was disappointed. The meatsacuce pasta that I ate here was nothing like the Italian one. This was full of garlic and we don't use that in Italy, at least not that much. Overall was not that bad, but was an american style... More

This is a great little Italian! Service was great and the complimentary bread and dpi were delicious! My husband had a pizza which was good but I would definitely recommend the pasta. My pasta was absolutely delicious! Yum!

An Italian favorite in the Union Square area. Great food, great services and moderately priced for the area. Reservations are recommended.

Fino is premier classy Italian. I would rate this place as very good and reasonably priced for San Francisco. My girlfriend and son were more impressed than me. They don't rip you off on the wine list and offer good moderate priced selections. The scallops were fresh and delicious but served with white sauce and I'm a red sauce guy.... More

Our group chose to eat at Finos after the reviews provided through trip advisor although on dining at this restaurant found the quality of the italian cuisine poor and service abrupt and rude.

Fino has good traditional Italian food in a very comfortable setting right near Union Square. The pasta is yummy and they have many options to choose from. We ate there before seeing a play at the SF Playhouse just two blocks away and they were very accommodating about making sure we were done in time for the show.

Because of Trip Advisor's recommendations, we thought we had to try out FINO since we are staying at an Union Square hotel so it was only a short 3 blocks walk for us. We called the day before for the next day and the only available time was 5:30pm and of course, we jumped on it. Thanks to all the... More

One of the best Italian restaurants I can remember eating at. Definitely competes with the Italian in New York and DC as well. Salad was fresh and light, greens only, but a mix that was flavorful and tasty. I did not miss additions. Perfectly dressed not hiding the beautiful ingredients. I had the pesto dish. Homemade fresh fettuccine. Creamy and... More

We went there for dinner and we were surprised with the outstanding service. An attentive waiter cleared crumbs in between courses and folded up a napkin when one of us left the table. Food was great, all fresh ingredients, great value for money. Highly recommended.
