It's not what is used to be, in any way. We've been coming whenever we're in town and have always had excellent service very good meals at a reasonable( for SF) price. Last night was disappointed on all three parts. The service was slow and indifferent, the food was unremarkable and their prices have skyrocketed. When the cheapest glass of... More

It has been a year since our last visit to San Francisco and this restaurant. The excellent cannelloni that I had chosen from the fixed price menu last year were no longer offered so I chose the special pasta of the day which included mushrooms and pancetta and was delicious. My husband chose the salmon daily special and was equally... More

We have dined at Kuleto's a number of times over the years and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere, the efficient and friendly service, and the always enjoyable food make this one of our spots to return to when we are in San Francisco.

Love this place. Love the wine list. Specials are unique and delicious. Not a place to take little ones. Fun to sit at the bar and enjoy some charcuterie and wine.

Just off Union Square, if you are dying for a great Italian meal, look no further. Kuletos has figured it out, great food, great service, fair prices, and a delightful ambiance. My wife had the veal and I had the spaghetti Vongola after we shared an excellent platter of prosciutto with pear and lightly oiled greens and a butter Chardonnay... More

Right off Union Square, open early for breakfast. Nice and quiet for a Saturday morning. Breakfast menu had good decent healthy choices. A bit pricey, and service was slow by pleasant. Not sure how it would be if they got busy. Food was very good, strong hot coffee, and relaxing atmosphere. If you walking around down town looking for a... More

Yep. It's Italian Food. Yep - right there on Union Square, across from Macy's; right up from a BART stop. But it has, apparently, undergone a change of kitchen staff and there has been a resulting drop in food quality. Now, first off - this is a relatively pricey place there on Union Square. Three dollar signs. ($$$). Everything is... More

A couple girlfriends and I went to Union Square 12/5/14. We stumbled upon Kuletos...what a fantastic time we had. Great meal and very good wine. We were so pleasantly surprised! We didn't want a chain restaurant, so this was perfect! You must have the Brussetta, OMG so good!

Kuleto's is a reliable restaurant right at Union Square. Brought the whole family (6 of us ranging from 7 to 21) and they gave us great service. The grilled radicchio appetizer with pesto is delicious all our meals were good to excellent. It is a bit pricey but worth it.
