Every time my wife and I visit SF, we make a special trip to Ristorante Milano because of the excellent food they serve! We have eaten here well over 5 times and have never been disappointed. Try the Fettucine alla Ghiotta and Bruschetta. Both amazing!!!

Don't be fooled by the ordinary decor. This restaurant produces awesome Italian food. When I last visited Milano (about 25 years ago) the food was great. I'm happy to report that nothing has changed. BTW they have an excellent selection of Italian wines.

We enjoyed the ambiance at Ristorante Milano. We sat in the front small room which was cozy and we could view the passersby on the street. The meal was nice and the service excellent. However, we all had the same thing (the lasagna special) and we all found it to be a bit bland. One of us should have tried... More

San Francisco has many wonderful Italian restaurants, and I have certainly not tried them all by a long shot. However, every time I visit San Francisco, I am drawn back to Ristorante Milano. It is a small cozy spot, moderate in price, that delivers food that absolutely is the real deal: delicious, satisfying and very much like Italy. On our... More

I once lived just a couple of blocks away from Ristorante Milano and dined there very often. I didn't realize how spoiled I had become until I moved to the east coast. A few years ago, I decided to try it again while on a business trip to San Francisco, and was very pleasantly surprised. Virtually, nothing had change. I... More

We went for my birthday. You can always be sure that the food and service are good. Mostly locals go there since it is not in North Beach. Easy to get to and easy to park -- they have a deal with the wine shop nearby that you can park there. Great pastas, very good secondi piatti and nice wine... More

I frequented this restaurant as a nearby resident from 2000 - 2001 and I love going back when I am fortunate to be in San Francisco. Quaint spot that you have to look for to find. They still have the same menu from those many years ago with my favorite dish (Fettuccine alla Ghiotta).

Small, kind of noisy and family attended. They couldn't initially confirm my reservation and waited aprox 30 mins-by then it was quite late and the menu choices where very limited. Wasn't impressed by their chioces nor taste. It will be a one time experienced for us

This neighborhood gem gave us a fantastic meal. We were greeted in a friendly way, shown to a very good table despite being first-time guests. The server explained the menu in a tempting way that made us want all of it. The service was outstanding and the food even better. We let the server pick our wine and he nailed... More

Small, intimate, neighborhood atmosphere with excellent service and food. We really felt apprecIated by waitress and owner. Gnocchi was yummy and swordfish was delicious. At the end of the dinner, they called us a taxi and checked up on us as we waited outside.
