We were staying at a close by hotel and decided to walk over and order a pizza to go. The service was excellent. Friendly, prompt, and perfect. We had a glass of wine while we waited for our pizza. The pizza was ready before the glass was empty. The pizza was excellent. The flavor out of this world. Nothing better... More

By accident we stumbled on this restaurant. Really great food, authentic Italian dishes, and friendly and fast service. Even the pizzas tasted really genuine. The atmosphere was cosy too. Basically there is nothing wrong with this place, on the contrary. Well suited for a family dinner or an informal business lunch or dinner. All in all good value for money.... More

My review has already been written by another reviewer, "Fab221." Great, authentic, Italian cuisine. But be prepared with tums or other antacid. That's the price some of us have to pay to eat food this delicious.

I have been there twice within 2 weeks You have a large choice of dishes, pasta and pizza. Despite it is ranked $$$ in trip advisor, it is not very expensive for SF considering the quality. The restaurant has a kind of wintergarden in the back where the decoration is not as nice as the main room, but where you... More

Another great experience of Italian cooking in america. We came by this restaurant by chance and so glad we did. We knew it would be good when the whole restaurant was full. We sat at the bar as no tables were free and loved being at the bar as you could see the chefs at work. I ordered the sausage... More

Pane e Vino in Union Street Pacific Heights is an established fairly traditional Italian restaurant frequented by locals, so you know it is good. The service was impeccable, as was the food and wine - we didn't have a reservation but were accommodated without fuss. A warm and inviting atmosphere, reasonably priced - a cosy haven on a cold San... More

very comfortable and welcoming neighborhood spot. Italian food that is above average, very reasonably priced. Extensive menu with many daily specials. Wonderful stuffed artichoke, very solid traditionals such as pollo marinato allo griglia, scaloppine di vitello ai funghi. Only real negative - your main course will likely appear 5 minutes after you get your starters, while you are just enjoying... More
