I stopped here for dinner on a whim. I was hoping for a slightly more inspired menu (Italian with a California twist, perhaps), but that's not what this place is. It's straight up Italian classics. My boyfriend and I ordered the spinach ravioli (which was excellent) and the Papardelle with rabbit, which was also very good. We had tiramasu for... More

Of all the Italians I could have chosen in San Fran, and I have the misfortune of having this one recommended to me by a concierge. Rushed & disinterested service ( turned around in less than 50 mins), stale bread, limp pasta, and a pesto sauce that is like no other I would wish to taste. On the plus side,... More

Had a reasonably priced meal. But my pasta with rabbit was lacking in any flavour. Husband said his veal special was good. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. I may have just chosen badly. Good service and buzzy atmosphere.

My daughter and I arrived early (before 6) on a Friday night, dressed very casually after a day of exploring, as we didn't plan to go out. We got in right away, the service was exceptional, very friendly. House-made ravioli great, linguine excellent, peach sorbet sublime.

Went here on recommendation of my hotel concierge. Was not disappointed. Excellent service, food was tasty and creative (they had a special squash filled pasta that was outstanding). Wine choices excellent too. Went back later in the week with business associates and again, great service and food!

We appreciated the Trip Advisor recommendations who led us to a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. The waiters are very Italian, the menu very traditional, and the cooking very good. The seafood, polenta, warm spinach salad, and tiramisu were all excellent. On a Friday night we called for a reservation just before getting on a cable car to the restaurant... More

Great service, reasonably priced food for a major city, and really delicious. I've dreamed about the pesto sauce I had in Italy 4 yrs ago that is very hard to find in the US...more of a creamy texture than oil based. It was delicious here. We split the Caesar salad...plentiful for 2 people. My daughter had the veg lasagna and... More

Located on the edge of Chinatown and North Beach Italian communities, and around the corner from the famous Beach Blanket Babylon, the restaurant is better inside than deciding to go there from the outside. We were recommended by a friend who goes there often and were treated like long lost friends in an Italian way. Excellent service and food quality.... More

If you are visiting San Francisco and get tired of the regular tourists traps... Firenze was recommended by a local as one of their favorite places for authentic Italiano. We skipped the seafood as it was flown in but the pasta plates were outstanding! The resturant is off the main drag but if you are a foodie, the meals make... More

Wondering why this place has so many good reviews? Friends and family perhaps? Seafood was sandy, cocktails were fishy, service was spotty.
