Fancier inside than you may think from the outside looking in...

Terrific food and good service. It was a bit expensive but the food was served quickly and was delicious. Dessert (mousse) was amazing! Full bar but not a ton of entree choices so be sure and check out the menu before you commit just in case they don't have something you like. Tables are a little... read more

Once again we were very pleased, I had seafood rissoto and my husband had the linguine with clams. Loaded with clams and bacon it's in a very yummy broth that you just have to soak up with their delicious bread. We started with calamari with a spicy marinara, fresh, very tasty, Good Chianti !

Come for the wine, stay for the food. Ask to sit near the fireplace. The bar is great for dinner as well.

We were staying in the Villa Florence hotel and Kuleto's is the in-house restaurant. Only ate here for lunch once. Good Italian food with good service. Just a bit on the pricey side but I suppose it is a large city with high prices!

Order this salad and you will not be disappointed! We come back for this delicious dish every year. But all of their salads are delicious, fresh and worthwhile!

I went there myself during this Jan's AEEA season, since I was alone by that night. I walked in from the relatively small entrance and was amazed by the spacious and comfortable feeling inside. It was huge and separated by two areas for dining. I ordered pinot grigio, garden salad and roasted duck, I finished with some dessert wine and... More

Been here many times and love it. I will be back, but tonight the food was just off a bit. I was entertaining a client and the service was suburb, but on the food side nothing (except the mousse dessert) was outstanding. The soup was OK, as was the salad. Both main courses of pasta were warm and not overly... More

Both Ceasar salad and Risotto a la Mare were really good👍🏻 Steam beer and ambiance in the bar was exactly right. Very close to Union Square

This restaurant has the best Italian food I have eaten in San Francisco. And I am not a huge fan of Italian food -- but this has been consistently good for years! My husband is the Italian food fan in our family... I'm just saying. We stay at the adjoining hotel, Villa Florence, when we come into The City to... More
