We chose Allegro Romano upon recommendation from our Concierge at the Fairmont, as we were looking for 'authentic' Italian food and she did not disappoint! The atmosphere was welcoming and cozy (not to mention the Heavenly aroma from the moment you walk through the door!!!), the service was excellent and the cuisine, nothing short of culinary perfection. We dined on... More

We had a 7 course meal for a group party of 14 here tonight and it was incredible. The food, the service, the people! I can't wait to go again.

Thank you so much Lorenzo!!! Our family had an amazing meal and so enjoyed your company. Your food is excellent, we could tell how much passion you had for serving quality meals, but most of all looking after and entertaining your guests. You made us feel at home the second we walked through the door and treated us like royalty... More

Good Italian is easy to come by in San Francisco, and Allegro Romano is no exception; the food is very good! What set's Allegro Romano apart is the ambiance and not to forget the attentive and inspiring service from Lorenzo and his staff. This neighborhood restaurant has become our "go-to" restaurant when we have visitors, as well as for a... More

Enjoyed a weeknight dinner at this great neighborhood venue. Limited seating and menu but food and service was excellent. Not good for a large group and really no 'view' to speak of but very enjoyable evening.

Just went to my FAVORITE San Francisco restaurant. If you haven't had their pasta, you're missing a real treat. And the fish was perfect. Just the right seasoning. Been before and will definitely go again.

Having read all the reviews I have to say trhat I felt disappointed with the level of service and attitude expressed. The waiters should write down what people order and who orders what as this always leads to confusion. I would also prefer to pour my own water and wine and that means I do not have still water mixed... More

We loved eating at this restaurant! So elegant and cozy! Great friendly service. The food was fabulous! We booked very last minute and was surprised that we got in! Handmade pasta was delicious. The chocolate ice cream was really good. They gave us port with dessert and then red roses to the women at the table. Very nice touch! Will... More

This spot came highly recommended and did not disappoint. It is a small (maybe 30 seats) Italian restaurant. The atmosphere and service were great. We had a party of six and left it largely up to our waiter to select the dishes and wine. Both excellent. We were the last table left at the end of the night and felt... More

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
