So fresh, so delicious!!

You can always tell when it's fresh homemade pasta with fresh ingredients. Mm!! My husband and I enjoyed it so much! He got the ravioli of the day which was stuffed with four cheeses and topped with a homemade fresh tomato sauce and fresh basil. I got the fresh homemade fettuccine with sausage... read more

two of us dined here in May after reading other reviews on tripadvisor. we arrived a bit early for our reservation and there was only one other couple in the restaurant which made us give pause. we needn't have worried as the food was delicious and the service attentive. this is a ' old school' Italian restaurant with traditional dishes...

If you miss Italian food, visit this restaurant: Small, charming, warm restaurant with delicious food.The wine choice is yours: Californian or Italian.Both are suiting the best dishes, which you receive, no matter what you order.Do not miss the opportunity to taste authentic Italian cuisine in California.

Though just saying "yum" would sell this place short, I'll start with that...YUM! We'd left one night open to just go with what sounded good that day. Luckily what sounded good was Italian, and even luckier for us there was an opening for dinner at Ristorante Milano that night, especially given how small this restaurant is! After being pleasantly greeted... More

My husband and I ate here on July 4th and had a fantastic Italian meal. The restaurant was full and lively. We had a short wait for a table however Aldo was very friendly and kept an eye on those of us waiting. The burrata was fresh and creamy, the gnocchi was light and airy and portion sizes were perfect.... More

My wife and I went for our anniversary and loved this part of town. The restaurant had a small, family-owned feel, and wonderful, attentive service. The food was excellent--the burrata was delicious and we loved the gnocchi and lasagna for dinner. We topped it off with homemade gelato - try the hazelnut chocolate combination. Would definitely recommend!

Many years had passed since I had a meal at this small jewel in Pacific Heights. The good news is like a fine wine it has only gotten better over time. It remains small and intimate with the owner in full command of the establishment. The service is genuine and unpretentious. And the food? Absolutely authentic. We started with a... More

Delicious food served by a friendly and helpful staff. Four of us did a lot of sharing. Everything was tasty and presented beautifully. Beet raviolis were one of the evening special items and they were fresh and yummy. The Torte Caprese was just the right sweet to end an enjoyable evening.

I've eaten here twice and both times the pasta was outstanding. It's some of the best I've eaten. The texture was perfect. And the sauces are rich and luxurious. (Their lasagna a nothing short of a treat.) The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
