I had the pleasure of enjoying a fabulous experience at Bella Trattoria, San Fran. The food was fabulous: refined and elegant in preparation, presentation, quality and flavor. I strongly recommend the Aqua Pazza. Wine: Go with the owner’s wine recommendations: knowledgeable, pleasant and appropriate to the menu choices. Bon a petit! Comfortable, friendly, warm, cozy atmosphere. Could stay there all... More

We chosed this restaurant because it was nicely ranked in Trip Advisor and once again, it was a good advice. Quite far from the downtown area but close distance of the Presidio what is making sense if you are touring the city. You won't be impressed by its external looking and it is not easy to find this small place... More

I was searching for a restaurant close to the place friends were renting an AirB&B. Found this little gem. Our party included 3 adults and 4 teens and everyone was very happy. We especially liked the spinach gnocchi which was air light! They had nice, well priced italian wine by the liter. Parking on side streets is ample - not... More

This was a restaurant that I have been meaning to try on my monhtly trips here for a client. Finally I did. The service was great; the salad was large and spectacular; and the pasta with salmon was perfect. The dessert was grand. I will do this again.

This was the best Italian meal I've ever had in the city. In a neighborhood not necessarily known for it's Italian food, this came as a wonderful surprise. The service from beginning to end was outstanding. They were genuinely friendly, not forced. My Campari Appertivo was delicious and has now made me a fan of the pre-dinner coctail, the tricolore...

Bella Trattoria is a classic San Francisco neighborhood Italian restaurant with outstanding food and service. The waiter's dry wit in responding to our comments added to our evening and he steered us to a delicious wine. Best gelato we ever ate.

Excellent neighborhood restaurant, we came here somewhat at random. The bone marrrow was heavenly...Now that fois gras is banned, I think this is my new favorite fatty thing to spread on toast :)

We were into catch-up conversation, not especially food, so the recommend special-of-the day, salads, a split dessert, and a nice bottle of wine hit the spot. A quiet table, service was good, background music a little high. We'd go back although on a weekend might be pretty noisy when full. Parking easy on Tuesday evening. Convenient to Laurel Heights, California... More

Omigod. So well-priced and the best gnocchi ever. Attentive service, a great Primitivo by the glass, and lots of extras like bread with sun dried tomato oil and a mini-pannacotta free gift at the end of the meal made this very memorable. Book ahead and enjoy!
