This is a great but small restaurant. I would highly suggest a reservation, we watched them turn away a number of people on a Sunday night. Food is great and they have a nice selection of wines. Only bad thing is that by being such a small restaurant, you do sit close to your fellow patrons, and it can get... More

This is a friendly relatively quiet restaurant just far enough off Columbus to be out of the hubbub. It gets busy after 7 or so - we went about 6:15 before a show and it was scarily empty. However, the staff are very friendly, service was superb. We shared a salad ($10) and a main course of Tagliatelle with short... More

I visited Vicoletto with a friend who is a local and loves the place. I agree. Of course North Beach has hundreds of Italian restaurants with anything from pizza to prime rib. Vicoletto has a nice modern interior and vibe. The service is attentive without being obtrusive. The wine list is of course heavy on Italian reds, but the server... More

Good service, good wine, good apps. Ambiance was fine, nothing special. The biggest highlight is the pasta, definitely on par with Italy.

I have been here many times and have enjoyed it every time. It's small and a little hidden, but certainly a great find. I find it to be a great spot to have dinner out with friends. It is always full, the staff is always great and the food never fails to satisfy. If you want great Italian food in... More

We recently dined here on our trip to SF from Boston based on tripadvisor reviews. This restaurant was excellent! From the charcuterie & cauliflower appetizer, gnocchi, bistecca, tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms and veal dinners and panna cotta with raspberry coulis & chocolate lava cake for dessert-everything was outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We joined up with a larger party of friends at Violettos. The arranged the tables, fixed kids menus and served us all nicely. We had various starters, all great. This is an italian restaurant and the main items of the menu are pastas and pizzas. We continued this variation for main course. Then some had some seafood linguini, and that... More

I have been to this great restaurant before and it never fails to please me. The staff are fantastic and the food has all the tastes you really want with a great Italian food place. It is always humming and obviously locals enjoy it.

We had a friend in from out of town on Mother's Day and wanted to go out to dinner together. Because of the holiday we had trouble getting a reservation, but Vicoletto had one available so we took it. We were glad we did. The food was very good, excellent home made pasta and fresh salads. The wine list was... More

Ordered the veal with lemon caper sauce and absolutely loved it and the chocolate volcano dessert was so good! Excellent wine and service. They were also able to help us find items our two small children would eat (the meatballs are awesome!) We will definitely be back!
