I happened upon this spot by sheer accident, staying with a friend close by. I wandered in, by myself, on a Monday night, and was seated with a very nice view of the East Bay and bridge. Wow.

Great neighborhood place. Seats only 30, or so but this allows Lorenzo to focus on you. The food is great and if you can't decide, ask him to put a few things together. I try to go there every time I'm in SF. Plan on Uber to take you back to your hotel.

This restaurant is located on Russian hill and we were staying across the street. We decided to try it based on the reviews and it did not disappoint. Excellent service, atmosphere, and food.

This is a small neighborhood Italian restraunt on Russian hill (near nob hill). It has a wonderful menu at very reasonable prices for the area. Bruschetta and meatballs were excellent. Dover sole and fresh pasta were also first rate. Excellent wines. Note : Only hotels serve cocktails most neighborhood eateries including this one serve only wine and beer.

Still a great place. A nice neighborhood restaurant, Lorenzo and his wife have maintained the level of food and service as always and it has to be the best Italian on Russian Hill. Try the truffled pasta and the Branzino, wonderful!

Food was very good and the owner is a real character. We felt at home from the first moment we entered. And a great side effect is that the restaurant is on the top hill of Nob Hill so you can work off the dinner by walking home.

This was a great suggestion for Italian food by a friend of ours. It's very intimate and has a nice cozy setting. The waitstaff was very attentive and helpful when making recommendations. Everything was cooked to perfection and incredibly good. The lobster ravioli was out of this world along with the basil pesto tortellini. We had a great experience and... 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.
